3 Mistakes When Eating Coconut Oil for Weight Loss

No weight loss after eating coconut oil

A fat that burns fat indeed, but you may not see much weight loss or worse, gain more weight with ingesting coconut oil if you make these mistakes...

1. Inadequate Coconut Oil Intake for Fat Loss

You have learned that coconut oil burns fat and promotes weight loss, right? Then it makes perfect sense to take as much as you can (I mean, not to the extent that gives you too many runs making you look like having a diarrhea).

If you're still using corn oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil or other unsaturated oils, use them in other ways like greasing your wooden furniture, oil pulling (if you're fine with swishing oil in your mouth), lubricating mechanical parts or whatever you can think of instead of using them as cooking oils because unsaturated fats in these dietary oils can ...read more »

3 Ways Coconut Oil Reduces Your Calorie Intake for Weight Loss

When someone says "eat fat to lose fat", the fat that he refers to must be coconut oil without a shadow of a doubt. That's because coconut oil so far is the only dietary fat that truly helps to effectively reduce your calorie intake for weight loss. How does it help you with that?

Coconut oil is a low-calorie fat by itself. It comprises about 64% medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). All animal fats and most other vegetable oils (including olive oil but excluding palm kernel oil, relative of coconut oil) contain 100% long-chain fatty acids.

3 Tips to Eat Coconut Oil for Weight Loss

Coconut oil can boost your metabolism, thus activating your fat-burning mechanism and keeping it running 24 hours round the clock. But you must eat it the right way in order to achieve the weight loss result you're expecting from eating it.

1. Choose Organic Coconut Oil for Weight Loss

If the coconut oil you eat is not organic, which means, it may contain certain degrees of pesticides, bacteria, fungi and other contaminants, then your body, instead of fully concentrating on burning fat to lose weight, has to partially handle removal of these bad, toxic chemicals.

In other words, if it's not organic, the weight loss effect of coconut oil will be greatly negated.

So, organic coconut oil is what you need to eat for effective weight loss.
