At first, when I was told to add oil and fat to my coffee, I believe I was disgusted with the thought of drinking something like that.
I mean, it’s not every day that you come across a drink containing coconut oil and butter! It came as a shock since we live in a time where it’s a constant battle to remove fat and calories from all things we consume.
The Combined Power Of Coconut Oil and Coffee
I remember being one of those people who would analyze calories without even paying attention to the ingredients, just counting, planning and calculating. It turns out I got it all wrong.
Take a look at this video and see exactly why avoiding calories is a huge nonsense.
As people grow older, they realize the true importance of being healthy, rather than skinny. I know it might seem unusual and irrational to add fat to your diet, but once you feel the benefits of this you will never look back. Coconut oil, especially boosts your metabolism and is a heck of a calorie burner!
Coconut Oil contains medium-chain fatty acids, unlike most oils that contain long-chain fatty acids. Medium chain fatty acids are metabolized in a different way than long-chain, which causes a favorable boost in the metabolism. Studies show that 1 to 2 tablespoons of medium chain fats (eg. coconut oil) per day increased energy expenditure by 5% — this is a total of 120 calories a day.
You will feel fresh and energized for longer , in comparison to just coffee alone.
