If yes, you don't have to deliberately tweak your carb intake. When you start taking coconut oil, it will automatically help you "determine" how much carb you have to take to fulfill your daily requirement. All you need to do is just listen closely to your body needs. People tend to take in more calories than they need when they ignore the signals that their body gives. For example, when you see your favorite food, you would just go for it without "asking" your body whether it is hungry and does really need to take it now or not. This is when people start to gain weight.
