Does coconut cause weight gain? How it affects your diet?

Coconut have one of the hight count of calories within nuts. If you are on diet and you are looking for low-calorific nuts, coconut seems to be a bad choice. It is easy to find something better among other nuts.

Really hard to find higher calories count in nuts. Similar energy amount have only such products as hazelnuts, macadamia nuts or peanuts.

You should consider that not only calories are important when you are on a diet. If coconuts contain nutrition you need than maybe you should add it to your daily menu anyway?
