Coconut Oil For Weight Loss

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

How is it possible to lose weight by adding organic coconut oil into the diet? It has to do with the medium chain fatty acids present that makes it possible for taking off that excess weight. Coconut oil is made up of approximately 66% medium chain fatty acids making it easily digested. It also helps with regulating thyroid function, increases the body's metabolism, and helps overweight or obese people to lose weight. It's very good for the cardiovascular system and is not stored in the body as fat, but is easily converted into energy.

It's important to consume the coconut oil on a regular daily basis for weight loss success. It may take up to 8 weeks before you see results. You don't have to make any major lifestyle changes, just simply add it to your diet. It has been proven by research that consuming organic coconut oil will increase your energy, help you to feel full longer and therefore giving you less food cravings for carbohydrates and foods high in calories.

If you have never had coconut oil before, you should slowly introduce it to your body. Start out slow, like a half a teaspoon in your coffee and each day slowly increase it. Like any food, you can have a food allergy. So, it's important to make sure you don't by slowly introducing it to your body. The total amount taken each day is based on your weight or you can consult your doctor about how much to take.

Your daily intake is based on your weight, but just start out slowly as mentioned before. If you weigh 100 to 125 pounds, you should take 2 1/2 tablespoons per day. If your between 125 and 150 pounds, then 3 tablespoons per day is 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. Again, if you're really unsure, then consult your physician.

There really is a lot to learn about all the benefits of coconut oil. One component of the medium chain fatty acid is lauric acid, which is found in human breast milk. It has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and anti-viral properties and coconut oil is made up of 50% lauric acid. So, not only is it great for promoting weight loss, it has many other health benefits by boosting your immune system and keeping you healthy and strong.
