American farmers attempted to plump up their cattle by feeding them coconut oil. Instead of gaining weight, their cows lost weight!
This is because:
1. The long-chain fats nearly always go to fat storage, while the MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) are burned for energy… which is why you feel great after eating this coconut super food.
2. Coconut oil helps to stimulate the metabolism, so you burn more calories each day, which helps with weight loss and energy levels.
