But, experts have found and in fact, stress that coconut oil is by far one of the best oils for weight loss. By coconut oil, they specifically mean organic, virgin coconut oil. Apparently, coconut oil has a long history of use by countries all over the world, especially for weight loss. So, let’s take a look at why it is so important to nutritionists and weight loss seekers.

Coconut Oil Boosts Energy

Coconut oil is made of medium-chain triglyceride lauric acid, which is an essential fatty acid that metabolizes in a completely different fashion in comparison with other saturated fats (those present in meats and dairy products).  The body does not store digested MCTs as fat but transports them to the liver, where it gets converted into energy, giving you the strength to work out and thereby, lose weight. Add two to three tablespoonfuls of coconut oil to your diet every day. 

Coconut Oil Cuts Appetite

As already mentioned that MCTs get transported to the liver for an instant energy boost, the entire process of digestion of MCTs and their conversion to energy causes the formation of keytone bodies that reduce hunger as well as cravings. Add two to three servings of coconut oil to your diet every day to kick the snack habit within a week.

Coconut Oil Burns Fat Really Fast

If your aim is to reduce the daily intake of calories and thereby lose weight, you may use coconut oil as a potential saviour. Consuming coconut oil regularly can ramp up the calorie-burning potential of the metabolic system without compromising on your health. Through this process, the body digests food and absorbs nutrients, regulating appetite and improving digestion. 

Coconut Oil Balanced Hormones

Weight gain is one of the most commonly seen problems in people who have imbalanced hormone levels. An imbalance of hormones can cause the thyroid function to fall prey to exploitation, which can thereafter affect mood, sex drive, digestion and most importantly, metabolism. The MCTs present in coconut can help the body in the conversion of cholesterol into sterone pregnenolone, an endogenous bio-chemical that is one of the important precursors for the production of hormones. So, start including coconut oil in your diet from today.

Clearly, coconut oil has the potential to correct most minor imbalances in your system, to make your weight loss efforts come out with flying colours.
