One of the biggest issues for people today is unwanted weight gain. There are various reasons why people gain weight and one of the most obvious and common of these is unhealthy eating habits. While some people gain weight due to over eating, others gain weight owing to lack of exercise and love of snacks which they munch on, all day long.

One of the best ways that science has found for losing weight effectively, safely and fast is to use coconut oil. This oil has numerous benefits and is used everywhere from diet to lotions to hair conditioners and now, has shown amazing benefits for health too, through research.

Coconut oil works for the inside of the body in three major ways. Firstly, it works by keeping one full. This oil is full of antioxidants and hence, is powerful for the body. Its main power is that it powerfully works to lose weight. The oil keeps the stomach fuller for longer and hence, keeps hunger signals from reaching the brain, telling it that there are enough calories. This keeps one from eating again and again or even feeling like eating for hours. As a result, 60 calories are kept away. Research has it that this amount adds up to make 6 pounds per year.

Another way that coconut oil works to reduce weight or keep weight gains under control is that it fires the metabolism up. While fats coming from other sources such as butter, mayonnaise and vegetable oil take a lot of time to break down and burn, coconut oil fastens this process to a great extent, several times faster. Hence, it digests quickly and also burns fats and calories faster. This is how the oil works wonders in staying light yet, keeping one fuller for hours and providing the right levels of energy for the day. The best part about this oil is that it does not store into the body like a fat, despite being fat.

The fat gained from usually sources swells a person’s body while coconut oil makes up for the necessary good fats and gives energy rather than fatness and obesity. Hence, the oil is a wonderful ingredient to add to the daily diet and keep all the unhealthy fats away. There are many ways in which coconut oil can be used.

Since coconut oil hardens at lower temperatures, it becomes waxy, buttery or even harder if cool. Thus, it can be used with toast in place of butter and also used for frying and cooking. However, doctors have devised another ways of consuming this oil and that is using two tablespoonfuls of it each day. This is what can help one to reduce weight fast and look younger and better than ever before.

Other than burning fat, coconut oil also works wonders in fighting off insomnia, thus resulting in better health. It is easily available in most grocery stores and is quite affordable. However, one should avoid buying labels such as ‘partially hydrogenated’ as these fats are not so natural and rather virgin oil should be bought as it works out great and is the highest quality oil available.
