Is it possible to lose weight if we add coconut oil to our diet? Coconut oil is full of fatty acids, and fatty acids make possible to take off excess fat. Coconut oil has 66% medium chain fatty acids that make it easily digested, regulates the thyroid function, increases the body’s metabolism, and helps overweight people to lose weight. It doesn’t stock in the body as fat; instead it easily turns into energy. Most saturated have long chain fatty acids and “mediums” helps the body to lose those excess fats.
Consume it daily so that you can achieve success in your endeavor to have a thinner body. You must be patient since weight loss doesn’t happen overnight. It could take around 8 weeks before you see results. Don’t worry about major lifestyle changes as it can be easily added to your diet. One way is to put it on our coffee. Researchers claimed that organic consuming organic coconut oil increases your energy. It allows you to feel full longer, which gives you less food cravings for carbohydrates and foods high in calories.
If this would be your first time to try it, slowly introduce it to your system since the taste is something you haven’t tasted before. The total consumed daily must be based on your weight. Just to be sure that you consume the right amount, consult a doctor before adding it to your diet. It can replace butter, margarine, and your everyday cooking oils.
As I already mentioned, the daily intake based on your weight. If you weigh 100 to 125 pounds, you should take 2 1/2 tablespoons per day. If you’re between 125 and 150 pounds, then 3 tablespoons per day are good. Then, 150 to 175 pounds, 3 1/2 tablespoons per day is good. Finally, if you weigh 175 pounds and more, then the recommended dose is 4 tablespoons per day. As earlier said, consult your physician if you’re unsure about how many doses of coconut oil should be taken.
What I shared is not the only benefit that we can get from coconut oil. Coconut oil also contains lauric acid, which is present in human breast milk. It has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and anti-viral properties. Coconut oil has other benefits such as skin, hair, boosts your immune system keeping you healthy and strong, but I am not going to talk about them here. Maybe, I can talk about them on another article.
