What is so great about coconut oil?
While many people concerned with weight loss may think that they need to avoid all fats, this particular oil should not be one of the fats you avoid like the plague. There are many unhealthy fats but there are also many healthy fats that the body needs for general health and well being which can also help with weight loss.
There are bad fats that you must avoid such as trans fats (eliminate from your diet) and many saturated fats (reduce or eliminate).
The good or healthy fats that you need more of in your life are also known as essential fatty acids (EFAs) and are commonly found in unsaturated fats such as monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats e.g. olive oil, olives, flaxseed oil, flaxseeds, various nuts and seeds, etc.
These good or healthy fats as mentioned earlier are essential for the body and help it to function properly and can also help boost your immune system, cardiovascular activity, help manage diabetes naturally, rheumatoid arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, cancer prevention, and so on and so forth. If you are trying to eliminate all fats from your body because you think this will help you lose weight, you will be doing your body a great disservice.
Instead of saying all fats are evil and should be banished, you need to be asking yourself what fats you need to be eating instead.
But coconut oil is a saturated fat…
This is true. Saturated fats are those that are solid at room temperature unless you reside in very hot climates in which case it will be so hot that the oil will remain in liquid form. If in solid form, this oil will quickly melt once heat is applied including applying body heat when it is rubbed between the palms or applied to skin.
