We all know that obesity and being overweight increases the risk of having diabetes and heart disease. Coconut oil weight loss diet presents the easiest and the best natural diet to manage body weight for ever.
without overeating, adding coconut oil to food allows you to manage your body weight and boost the body’s overall health and energy.
the answer is the main component of coconut oil, MCFA( medium chain fatty acids .These special Fatty acids form more than 60% of coconut oil. The way these MCFA move through the body-in the processes of digestion and metabolism-make it easy for the body to burn the excess fat.
The body uses MCTs for energy and doesn’t store it in adipose tissues. On the contrary of the effect of all other fats, eating coconut oil burns the stored fat especially around the waist .
Coconut oil manages body weight through its three properties;
In a study, they measured the effect of consuming a meal rich in MCTs (medium chain trigleceryde) on the body metabolism before and after taking the meal.People with a normal body weight, their energy expenditure (which equals body metabolism) increased by 48% while with the obese people group their metabolism increased up to 65%, so the higher the body weight the higher the increase in body metabolism. To make it even better, coconut oil studies show that the lower the body weight, the lower the rise in body metabolism. This is how our body works naturally, when we feed it healthily.
There is no certain guide amount of coconut oil dose per day, some people get the benefits of coconut oil with one table spoon each day.
Depending on the amount of Lauric acid an infant receives from their mother’s milk, Dr. Marry Enig suggest 24 grams of Lauric acid for the average adult. This amount could be found in 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil or in 10 ounces of pure coconut milk , or you can take 7 ounces of raw coconut.
Always start with small amounts and increase it gradually.
