Does anyone use coconut oil? If yes in what form? Can it assist if fat loss?
Dont know what you mean by form.. Coconut oil is made up of MCT medium chain triglycerides.. Because they are shorter the body metabalizes them much faster and efficiently converts them into fuel for immediate use. They also induce thermogenisis. They can absolutely be used to assist fat loss as long as your diet is on pointOriginally Posted by a312
I use extra virgin. I wouldn't say it will assist in fat loss, but it is a very easy to digest and easily absorbed and oxidized source of fats and fuels. Perhaps if you swap EVCO for vegetable oil you will see improvements in health and body composition.
Just be careful with some coconut oil you buy with how you store it. I just returned from the Philippines with a fresh bottle of it and it had a bit of a...transformation...during the travel process due to climate change. While it's still fine the appearance of it can change and it may need to be re-rendered in order to be processed by your body more effectively.
