Fat Loss And Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is one of the best weapons we have to fight fat gain. It is a food that is beneficial to the body but has received little notice. Coconut oil has beneficial fatty acids that provide a boost to our metabolism.
Every little technique to boost our metabolic rate should be employed so that we are a fat burning furnace around the clock.
Unlike normal hydrogenated oils which are extremely bad for our body, coconut oil has many health benefits.
Coconut oil contains fatty acids that will curb our appetite. We will be less hungry and therefore will eat less.
Coconut oil will make things a little easier by reducing our hunger pangs. So, not only does it boost our metabolism; it also decreases our calorie intake. That’s a winning fat loss combo.
Studies have shown that coconut oil also targets fat loss in the abdominal region. This is one of the most stubborn areas to lose fat.
Abdominal fat is known as visceral fat and is a dangerous kind of fat that leads to inflammation, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Losing visceral fat will improve our health and reduce the risk of disease.
Coconut oil contains 66% “healthy” saturated fats that help to increase protein absorption and aids in fat oxidation. It lowers bad cholesterol level, raises good cholesterol levels, has antioxidant properties, boosts brain power and slows down aging.
So how do we use coconut oil in our diet?
It’s really simple. We can use it in place of normal oils. Use it to lightly fry eggs or meats. The oil reaches liquid state when heated and has a pleasant aroma and light taste that complements most foods. Coconut oil is slightly fattier than normal oils so use it in moderation. Even if it is full of good fats, we must always be aware of how much we are consuming. Responsible eating is a cornerstone for fat loss.
Two Types Of Coconut Oil Which Assist Fat Loss
There are 2 kinds of coconut oil. Extra virgin coconut oil and refined coconut oil. The extra virgin version is a better choice. It is produced using better methods and in more sanitary conditions. However, extra virgin coconut oil has a stronger taste.
As with all things, start slowly and use coconut oil sparingly till you get used to the taste and grow to like it.
