Why People Are Losing Weight With Coconut Oil Diets

Are you aware that coconut oil diets are taking the world by storm? Hundreds of thousands of people are losing weight and getting healthier using coconut oil.

Coconut oil diets are becoming increasingly popular as people are discovering out how coconut oil helps them lose weight, increase their metabolism, and even fight disease. Coconut oil is safe to use, and does not turn to fat in your body. It raises the metabolism, so you burn more fat and have more energy. It does not increase your cholesterol, but actually helps lower it. Coconut oil is wonderful diet addition for just about everyone.

For centuries people in the tropics have relied on coconuts and coconut oil as a traditional staple in their diet. They consume large amounts of coconut oil every day. Instead of getting fatter, it helps them stay healthy, lean and trim. When they switch from coconut oil to our modern oils, they develop the obesity and health problems that our modern society faces.

If you have been having trouble losing weight, there is a good chance you could use the dieting and health benefits that come from coconut.

Unlike many other common oils, like soy (vegetable), corn and canola oil, coconut oil won't make you fat. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which are an easy fuel for the body to burn, without turning to fat. Most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT).  LCT's are usually stored as fat. Since coconut oil is a MCT, it is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quicker.

Some people who have known this truth for a long time are people who are in the animal feed business. When livestock are fed vegetable oils, they put on weight and produce more fatty meat. When they are fed coconut oil, they become very lean.

Not only does coconut oil convert to energy quicker in your body, it increases your metabolism, which promotes weight loss. Because it boosts your metabolism, it helps your body burn fat more effectively and gives you more energy. Coconut oil may triple your calorie burn. Since coconut oil is a MCT, it is converted to energy so quickly that it creates a lot of heat. Coconut oil improves sluggish thyroids by stimulating the production of extra thyroid hormones. Most other common oils have been shown to inhibit thyroid function.

Besides the weigh loss benefits, coconut oil is also anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and even anti-parasitic. Pure coconut oil contains about 50 percent lauric acid, and, outside of a nursing mother's breast milk, it's the most abundant natural source of lauric acid available.

When lauric acid is present in the body, it's converted into monolaurin, a compound that exhibits antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties. It acts by disrupting the lipid membranes in organisms like fungus, bacteria and viruses, which destroys them. Without a plentiful source of lauric acid, the body cannot produce monolaurin, which explains why many people who regularly consume coconut oil experience less sickness.
