How to get over the weight loss plateau using coconut oil
It’s not fair
Does this sound familiar? Have you got rid of the fatty foods? Have you taken the stairs instead of the elevator? Do you notice you’re jeans are fitting better? Have you lost a few pounds and feel like everything is moving in the right direction but then … HALT!!!!
It all comes to a screeching stop. Nothing you do seems to work. The scale simply refuses to move and you are stuck at the same weight for what feels like forever. You know you’ve not been cheating so why is your body refusing to play ball?
You are not alone in this frustration. The dreaded plateau comes to most people who are embarking on a new fit and healthy lifestyle. The problem is your body thinks ‘Oh no. Something is wrong. Why are we not getting a million calories a day anymore?’ and it instructs your metabolism to slow down to preserve fat stocks. SIGH!
What is metabolism?
At a basic level, your metabolism is the process in which your body turns fuel into energy. It determines the rate in which your body does tasks such as burn calories and build new cells. It is the reason why some people lose weight faster than others and why you hate those people who can eat crap all day and never gain a pound. It slows down because it’s trying to protect your body from scarcity – it doesn’t realize that you have a pizza menu in your hand and you’re not afraid to use it!
Do not despair. There are easy ways to speed your metabolism up through diet and exercise. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for example. By speeding up your metabolism you can not only start shedding pounds again, but actually turn your body into a fat burning machine. A body with a high metabolism will continue to burn calories at a faster rate even when the body is at rest. Sound good?
A simple way to boost your metabolism, get over the weight loss plateau and get your body burning excess fat again is by simply adding coconut oil to your diet.
How can coconut oil help?
It’s all about those Medium Chain Fatty Acids. Coconut oil is composed of medium chain fatty acids, making it different to most other oils and fats. The body uses coconut oil in a different way to other fats. Rather than storing the fat from coconut oil, the body sends it straight to the liver for instant energy. This process boosts your metabolism which means the rate in which your body uses energy increases, meaning more fat is burned.
Fat is required for the production of hormones and optimal brain cell function. However, not all fats are created equal and we know not all fats are healthy. There are 3 types of saturated fats (short, medium, and long chain fats). Medium-chain saturated fats (such as coconut oil), promote healthy weight loss by boosting metabolic rate. If you are trying to lose weight then the higher your metabolism, the more energy you will burn and the more weight you will lose. Adding healthy fats to your diet helps to fire up your metabolism turning you into a fat burning machine!
Fat has 9 calories per gram and coconut oil is no exception. However, many studies show that people who add Medium Chain Fatty Acids to their diet have reduced appetite and start eating fewer calories naturally. Compared to the same amount of calories from other fats, they increase feelings of fullness and lead to an automatic reduction in calorie intake. Coconut oil has a “thermogenic” quality and eating it tends to increase energy expenditure compared to the same amount of calories from other fats. When coconut oil is metabolized by the liver it produces ketones which have a powerful appetite suppression effect.
AND if that’s not enough for you then you should also know that coconut oil is very effective at removing the visceral fat (belly fat), that tends to lodge itself around your organs and cause inflammation, diabetes and heart disease. This belly fat is known for being incredibly difficult to shift, yet coconut oil has be proven to make a real difference. Any reduction in abdominal fat is likely to have very positive effects on your metabolic health, longevity and drastically reduce your risk of chronic disease so hooray for coconut oil!
