Coconut Oil & Weight Loss

Can Coconut oil be beneficial  in weight loss?

How can that be, if it is a saturated fat???

As a nutritional counselor & health coach, I have been researching that very question.

You may have heard that saturated fat is bad. In the 1970’s there was a strong propaganda campaign spread by “other oil” industries against coconut oil. Coconut oil was considered harmful for the human body because of its high saturated fat content…BUT in the last ten years or so… people began to question this thinking.

So why is it beneficial? Most of the fats we consume are long chain fatty acids that must be broken down before they can be absorbed. More work for the body, especially the pancreas which has to make and secrete enzymes to break foods down. Coconut oil is high in short and medium chain fatty acids, which are easily digested and sent right to the liver for energy production.

Because MCFAs are sent right to the liver for digestion, no bile or pancreatic enzymes are needed for digestion, making coconut oil a healthy food. Because it is sent directly to the liver, it gives the body an immediate source of energy…increasing the body’s metabolic rate aiding in healthy weight loss.

There are SO many ways to incorporate it into your life…stir fry, baking, etc.

However, this is my fav way…I add Wildtree’s organic coconut oil to my coffee. Just $9.00 for 13.5 ounces!  Check it out at www.mywildtree.com/myfatherswellness)

Coconut Oil is SO Creamy in my Coffee!

Coconut Oil is SO Creamy in my Coffee!

I just stir in a teaspoon or two or three and for an added treat…I give it a quick spin in my Magic Bullet! It helps it stay mixed. No need to add any creamer, it is already so creamy & frothy. For sweetness, I add a packet of natural Stevia, a natural herbal supplement made from the Stevia leaf, that is sweet.

I will be adding more benefits of Coconut Oil as I research further!

Wildtree Grapeseed Oil is NOT solvent extracted like the vast majority of Grapeseed oils in the marketplace.

This method of oil extraction is an alternative to the chemical extraction method used for many conventional oils. Sometimes expeller pressed is referred to as cold-pressed.
