Dear Angel
Fresh, raw coconut contains 254 cal or 1480 kJ per 100gr, while dried or desicated coconut contains 660 cal or 2782 kJ per 100g, so it is has a relatively high energy content and eating too much can cause weight gain. The desiccated version contains up to 64,5 g of fat, so eat in moderation.
Best regards
