Fight Fat with Fat!

Fight Fat with Fat!

Coconut oil is all the rage right now - from skin care, hair treatments, first aide, and fat loss. Yes, fat loss! A study conducted in Brazil found women who took coconut oil supplements during a 12-week diet lost inches along their waistline, while other study participants did not. Why? Lauric acid, a medium-chain triglyceride and the saturated fatty acid found in coconuts, is quickly absorbed by the body and converted into fat burning energy. 

But wait, coconut oil does more than help whittle your waist. Because lauric acid is utilized quickly, coconut oil will provides a long-lasting and natural boost of energy. Individuals who regularly take coconut oil supplements also notice a curb in their appetite and athletes can use coconut oil as a recovery supplement to help re-build muscle. Research is even underway to test the effectiveness of coconut oil in treating atherosclerosis and improving the immune system. 

We have even MORE good news, you don't have to take a pill every day to get the benefits of lauric acid. Add 1 tablespoon of unrefined coconut to oatmeal or smoothies. Or you can also replace vegetable oil and butter in recipes with refined coconut oil. Lastly, don't forget Skinny Jane products! Skinny Blend contains MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) powder, a potent form of lauric acid to help you feel full and burn fat.
