Imagine fighting fat with fat!

We’re talking about coconut oil as a natural way to lose weight. Now, you may wonder how oil, typically reputed to add weight can actually help you shed those pounds. Keep reading! First, let’s understand how coconut oil is different from other oils. In relation to weight loss, we are specifically referring to organic raw extra virgin coconut oil which is cold pressed and cold processed.

What is so special about organic virgin coconut oil?

Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids. Rather than roam freely in the blood stream and be stored as fat, they travel to the liver to be transformed into energy.This accelerates the body’s metabolism. This unique feature has made coconut oil a nutritional hero that brings a host of health benefits.

Considered a healthy saturated fat, coconut oil manages your appetite, balances your blood sugar and keeps your metabolism going at the right rate. It can melt those inches from your waistline. Let’s look at some of the ways it can help you lose weight:

  • Coconut oil can trigger the production of thyroxin, a metabolism-enhancing hormone in your thyroid and this enables fat burning at a faster rate, thanks to the medium chain triglycerides in the oil.
  • Including coconut oil in your diet keeps you feeling fuller, preventing you from snacking, which leads to weight gain. Simply add it to your meals as well as by using it to replace your cooking oil or butter.
  • Blood sugar control becomes easier with extra virgin coconut oil, as it slows down the digestion of carbohydrates, preventing fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. When blood sugar is out of control, it makes you crave for sugary snacks and this makes you put on weight.
  • One of the major benefits of coconut oil is its antifungal properties eliminating yeast infections in the gut. By getting rid of excess yeast, you are less likely to crave sweet snacks, keeping off extra weight.
  • If you are looking for a quick energy boost without the weight gain, coconut oil is perfect. Since coconut oil’s medium chain fatty acids are metabolized in the liver you feel more energetic.
  • As a detox agent, coconut oil heals as well as keeps you healthy. We all know that overall health is important for weight loss. It also keeps your bowels healthy.

Just remember to use unrefined raw virgin coconut oil that has been cold pressed and cold processed to get the best benefits.
