The Truth About The Coconut Oil Weight Loss Strategy
Eat More Fat!
Many of us struggle with losing weight.
It’s a constant balance of eating right and staying healthy.
When I recently read that a good way to lose weight and keep it off was to eat more fat, I thought it had to be a joke.
Someone playing a cruel trick!
However it wasn’t.
Fact is, if you’re eating more of the right kind of fat it can help control cravings and even out your blood sugar.
A successful tool in losing weight and keeping it off is to maintain blood sugar that’s consistently leveled out.
This is important to ensure that any extreme ups or downs in your blood sugar are avoided to keep you from feeling the need to binge on the nearest dessert or family size bag of chips.
Believe it or not, the best way to maintain level blood sugar over long periods of time and between meals is to consume healthy and satiating fats!
One of the best types of healthy fats is coconut oil.
For weight loss, coconut oil is the best fat to choose, due to the vast amounts of essential fatty acids called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that are easily absorbed into your system to instantly boost metabolism and create immediate long lasting energy.
Unlike other fats, MCTs in coconut oil don’t end up being stored as body fat like longer chain fatty acids tend to.
Coconut oil also has a numerous amount of other health benefits that are an added bonus to consuming it for weight loss.
Civilizations that have consumed high amounts of coconuts and coconut oil in their diets for centuries are significantly healthier and have little to no cases of heart disease or obesity. This clearly proves that any negative press is simply false.
Coconut Oil vs. Olive Oil
Contrary to popular belief, olive oil is not the best option when you’re trying to lose weight.
In particular, olive oil should be used in moderation by those who’s end goal is weight loss.
Those facts are surprising to many people because olive oil is typically known as the first “healthy oil” and it tends to be the first oil someone will use when they are attempting to eat healthier.
This all comes down to a popularity contest and chatter of people including nutritionist and doctors promoting it.
Although it was being promoted as the “healthy fat” oil, this just isn’t the case when compared to coconut oil.
If you are looking for a type of good fat to speed up and compliment your efforts in losing weight, raw coconut oil is by far your best choice as well as limiting your use of olive oil and other predominantly monounsaturated fats like peanut oil. You’ll need to do this if you want to keep on track with your weight loss goals.
Using Coconut Oil for Weight Loss
If you’d like to start using coconut oil as a weight loss aid, there are many options for you to choose from.
- Taking it orally is the best way to get it into your system and let it do it’s work efficiently.
- The best time to take your coconut oil is twenty minutes prior to each meal. Taking it then is best as it will significantly reduce your appetite and aid in making you feel satiated more quickly and feel satisfied with smaller portions.
There are several options to take your coconut oil before each meal.
- A couple of them are stirring 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in herbal tea or hot water and drink it twenty minutes before or you can just put your desired amount directly into your mouth and let it dissolve before swallowing.

Not all Coconut Oils are Created Equal
Although coconut oil is very resistant to damage from heat, in some types of coconut oil solvents are used to extract the oil, which can alter the coconut oils nutrients and leave behind chemical residues, therefore causing it to not be as beneficial as pure unaltered coconut oil.
You DO NOT want refined, bleached or deodorized coconut oil.
You DO want organic virgin coconut oil that is cold-pressed, unrefined, undeodorized and unbleached.
When the coconut oil is pure and 100% raw, it ensures the delicate micronutrients in the oil have been preserved and there have been no chemicals used in processing.
