No. Coconut oil is a lipid, which means it's a source of fat. Fat is the most calorie-dense of food sources, which means that consuming too much coconut oil (virgin or no) will cause you to put on weight. Worse, it's high in various types of saturated fats, which account for over 90% of the fat found in the oil. Virgin coconut oil simply means oil that is pressed directly from the coconut, which is then untreated further (except for filtering). It may taste slightly better than processed oil, but it doesn't last as long before going bad.
