run across some VERY interesting studies recently on the relationship
between coconut oil (or any type of coconut fat, including coconut milk
and cream) and how it can affect your body fat…
The findings may surprise you!
2009 study published in the Journal Lipids consisted of testing the
effects of either 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or 2 tablespoons of
soybean on a group of 40 women over the span of 28 days.
Results showed that the group that ate the coconut oil had a decrease in abdominal fat,
while the soybean oil group actually showed a slight increase in belly
fat. Additionally, the group that ate the coconut oil showed increased
HDL ‘good’ cholesterol levels, while the soybean oil group had decreased
HDL cholesterol and increased LDL ‘ bad’ cholesterol.
Journal of Nutrition published a study where researchers investigated
all studies relative to medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that are
abundant in coconut fat and weight management. The studies showed that
diets rich in fats such as those found in coconut oil prompted a boost
in metabolism, increase in energy, decrease in food consumption, reduced
body weight and lower body fat mass. The study authors highly recommend
using oils that contain MCFAs, such as coconut oil, as a tool to drop
extra abdominal fat, manage a healthy weight, and even as a way to treat
another study that assessed body weight and fat storage relative to
three different types of diets including a low-fat diet, high-fat diet
with long chain fatty acids (LCFAs) and a high fat diet with MCFAs. In
order to bring about weight gain, caloric intakes were adjusted for the
diets. At the end of the research period (which lasted 44 days), the
low-fat diet group stored an average of 0.47 grams of fat per day, the
LCFA group stored 0.48 grams of fat per day, and the MCFA group only
stored a mere 0.19 grams per day (despite purposely increasing
calories). Those in the MCFA group (coconut fat) had a 60 percent reduction in body fat stored compared to the other diets.
added bonus of consuming organic coconut oil (and coconut cream or
milk) is that it tends to make us feel fuller for longer. Studies
indicate that MCFAs help increase feelings of fullness and lead to a
reduction in calorie intake when compared to the same amount of calories
from other fats. When MCFAs are metabolized, ketone bodies are created
in the liver – these have been shown to have a strong appetite reducing
effect helping you to lose fat faster.
you thought from reading about how using coconut oil daily for helping
to reduce abdominal fat is pretty incredible, you’re going to be blown
away by the powerful health benefits of coconut oil on the page ahead… 9 MORE reasons to use daily coconut oil (including benefits to thyroid, brain, skin, oral health, heart health, detoxing, cancer, and more)
