I wouldn't use it as an energy booster and/or weight loss aid, but that is only because I don't quite view foods that way.
Regarding weight loss:
I always eat healthy and in terms of fat loss or muscle gain, I simply vary the quantities of my starchy carbs.
Regarding energy boosting:
If you are eating healthy, working out and sleeping well, your energy levels should be pretty stable. Trying drinking more water to make sure everything (metabolism and digestion) is running smoothly and you will have sufficient energy.
That said, coconut oil is good for you and you can make it a part of a healthy diet. It can be a great oil to pop popcorn with for a healthier snack (than say potato chips). Or you can use if for other cooking purposes.

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights
