Trying To Lose Weight? Have A Coconut

Trying To Lose Weight? Have A Coconut

You'd be amazed at what eating a coconut can do to help you lose weight. Coconuts contain Medium Chain saturated Fatty Acids (MCFAs), which are digested and handled by the body differently than other fats. MCFAs do not circulate in the bloodstream and are instead immediately converted into energy, meaning they are burned instead of being stored as body fat. An additional benefit of MCFAs are that they speed up the body’s metabolism (up to a 50% boost!), allowing you to burn more calories, resist weight gain and even shed some unwanted pounds. Lastly, MCFAs burn longer and more steadily than other foods so there are no spikes or slumps in the blood sugar levels, which helps fight off two driving factors behind weight gain: cravings and bingeing.  So if you're looking for a smarter snack between meals, crack open a coconut.

  • Many of the best meal replacements on the market now have added ingredients to make them even more effective in helping people achieve their goals faster. Ideally…your meal replacement…no matter what your goal…should have added vitamins and minerals to make it a complete meal. It may also have other ingredients like creatine…glutamine…taurine…or fat mobilizing/ metabolizing compounds to assist your body composition changing efforts.

  • Use those multi-colored stars on the calendar for each day you’ve achieved your goal — exercise…diet…whatever it is. Gives you something…small as it may be…to look forward to.
