coconut oilThe Benefits of Coconut Oil

One might wonder why I cook so much with coconut oil?  Not only does it taste great but it is healthy for you too!  Can it really help you lose weight or maintain your already healthy weight?  I believe it can.  According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, Virgin Coconut oil can

  • Help you lose weight or maintain your already healthy weight
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease
  • Lower your cholesterol
  • Improve conditions in those with diabetes and chronic fatigue
  • Improve Crohn’s, IBS, and other digestive disorders
  • Prevent other disease and routine illness with its powerful antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents
  • Increase metabolism and promote healthy thyroid function
  • Boost your daily energy
  • Rejuvenate your skin and prevent wrinkles
But just how can it help you lose weight and how much should you be consuming?
 

How Can You Lose Weight With Coconut Oil?

 
 
To answer that question, coconut oil contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off unwanted weight.   Coconut oil increases the bodies metabolism by removing stress on the pancreas, thereby burning out more energy and helping obese and overweight people reduce their weight.  
 
It also helps in improving the digestion system  and helps prevent various stomach and digestion related problems including irritable bowel syndrome.  If that wasn’t enough, it also is easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and enzymes systems.
 
So just how much coconut oil should one consume?   I would start with 1-2 tsp three times a day.  Slowly introduce it to your diet and work your way up to 3-4 tbsp of coconut oil a day.  If you are experiencing any diarrhea then reduce the amount of coconut oil as this is a sign of to much coconut oil.
