Coconut Oil. It is a saturated fat, so how can it be a weight loss supplement? We’ve been taught that saturated fats are the bad fats, right? Right! But Coconut Oil contains an essential fatty acid, Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCT’s metabolize differently than the saturated fats that are in meat and dairy, the body doesn’t store MCTs as Fat. Instead, the body transports them directly to the liver, and that is where they are converted, directly into energy!
It seems almost impossible to lose weight, especially weight that accumulates in the stomach or abdomen.
Organic Virgin coconut Oil is proven scientifically to affect our body’s ability to shed those extra pounds we can’t seem to lose.
Eating one or two tablespoons of Organic Virgin coconut Oil will boost your metabolism by speeding it up. It does this by providing your body with clean, obtainable energy so you’ll feel less hungry. It also increases your ability to absorb nutrients from the food you eat so you’ll crave less junk food. It helps balance your hormones so you have less stress, because stress is a cause of fat retention. When MCT”S go straight to the liver, the processing of MCT’s forms keytone bodies, and keytone bodies have the added benefit of reducing hunger and cravings.
2-3 servings of coconut oil each day will help you feel fuller faster so you are not snacking all of the time.
Coconut Oil promotes the production of healthy hormones which improve digestion, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase energy to help burn away thestubborn fat that is stored around the waist, buttocks and thighs.
