Eat Fat and Lose Weight…YES!


Coconut Oil is the Way to Go

Sounds too good to be true but it’s not! What is also true is that it’s the carbohydrates that make you fat!

Most of us have tried dieting at least once in our lives. We have been told “low fat,” “Non-fat” or “Low calorie” is the only way to lose our excess pounds.

Our grandparents got about 40% of their daily calories from fat. Today we consume significantly less than that. We’ve replaced saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats and fake fats.

We eat more low-fat, low calorie foods now than ever before, yet we are fatter now than ever before. Why is that?

The simple answer is that low-fat diets don’t work! They’re not natural, they’re not healthy, and in the long run they promote weight gain, not weight loss!

Research proves this. The Framingham study, the longest running study ever made on the relationship between diet and health began in 1948 and is still going on today. After more than 40 years of research on over 5,000 people, the director admitted “the more saturated fat, cholesterol and calories a person ate, the lower the serum cholesterol they had. The people who ate the most fat, weighed the least.”

Coconut oil is a highly saturated fat. For years saturated fat was believed to increase blood cholesterol, which in turn, was believed to promote heart disease. A number of recent medical studies have proven this to be false.

In fact, coconut oil possesses superior nutritional qualities over other oils and, when added to baby formula, increases the survival rate of premature infants. Some hospitals are even starting to add it to intravenous solutions.

Other studies have shown that lab animals given coconut oil lived longer and developed fewer diseases than those given soybean, corn or other vegetable oils.

Coconut oil has been described as the “World’s Healthiest Dietary Oil.” There is a huge amount of historical evidence and medical research to verify this statement.

One of the secrets to the benefits of coconut oil consumption is that it is composed of what are called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). The body will only use this kind of fat to burn for energy instead of making fat. It actually helps burn fat cells.

Coconut oil has some additional benefits. It tends to push the body to develop ketones which have a cancer fighting/preventive effect. It also contains a compound called monolaurin that has an anti-viral effect in the body.

If uninformed professionals or writers tell you that coconut oil is artery-clogging saturated fat, they need to read the new research.

There is no question about it. Coconut oil, as part of a high protein, high healthy fat, low carbohydrate diet, with lots of low starch vegetables, is the way to go for good health and weight loss.
