Here’s some amazing news for fans of natural foods: Did you know that a 2009 scientific study of 40 women aged 20-40, each with abdominal obesity, found that consuming just 30ml of coconut oil a day led to a significant reduction in waist circumference?  (1 Imperial tablespoon = 17.76 ml – so this amount is just under 2 tablespoons per day.)
Now how could it be that eating something can lead to weight loss? The “simple answer” is that coconut oil is high in Medium Chain Fatty Acids, which are easily digestible. It is reported that these fats are highly digestible – and unlike the long chain fatty acids typically found in animal fats, MCFAs are able to be absorbed directly by the liver and converted directly to energy, rather than being stored as fat in the body. This rapid availability in turn stimulates metabolism. 
Another interesting fact about coconut oil is that it is considered antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral – which may help the immune system. It is thus also not only considered beneficial to the digestive system, but also a good base to use in any natural deodorant formula as it is bacteria that cause odor problems.
How to eat coconut oil: The best thing to do is to start including it gradually in your diet. One teaspoon per day is suggested to start with. You can add it to all kinds of recipes including cakes, oatmeal, even putting it in coffee! Another simple way to eat it is to put it on toast instead of butter. I would also strongly suggest to only go for organic extra-virgin coconut oil. The quality is worth it.
Coconut also has higher high temperature stability than numerous other oils. It is considered a healthier choice for use as a cooking oil than olive oil for example. Olive oil is great for low temperature use but breaks down at higher temps, creating compounds that are potentially bad for health if used in cooking.
Coconut oil is also amazing for your skin. Just massage a little in, especially to dry skin or after shaving. Ladies, this is a super tip for the most amazingly soft and gorgeous skin.
