Coconut Oil to Lose Weight
Coconut oil is the world’s most weight loss friendly fat.
It contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful effects on metabolism. Several studies show that just by adding coconut oil to your diet, you can lose fat, especially the “dangerous” fat in the abdominal cavity.
Here is how this wonderful superfood works…
Coconut Oil is high in medium chain triglycerides, fatty acids that boost metabolism
Coconut Oil to Lose Weight : Coconut oil is vastly different from most other fats in the diet. Whereas most foods contain predominantly long-chain fatty acids, coconut oil consists almost entirely of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (1).The thing with these medium chain fatty acids, is that they are metabolized differently than the longer chain fats.They are sent straight to the liver from the digestive tract, where they are either used for energy right away or turned into ketone bodies.These fats are often used by epileptic patients on a ketogenic diet, in order to increase ketone levels while allowing for a bit more carbs in the diet (2).
