Coconut oil contains about 50% lauric acid, which has many health benefits, like in protecting us against pathogens and in developing a healthy metabolism.
Coconut oil contains only about 6% monounsaturated and about 2% polyunsaturated fatty acids. It consists of such saturated fatty acids that are easily digestible, converted into energy, and can speed up the metabolism; whereas the oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids are more difficult for the body to disintegrate and to be used for energy. They are usually stored in the body as fat.

How coconut oil promotes weight loss

Medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil can be up to 3 times more effectual to raise the metabolism compared to polyunsaturated fatty acids. It means that coconut oil can be used as an effective means for weight loss.

Coconut oil retards (slows down) the digestion of food by the intestines, which makes you feel full for a longer time after a meal. Many people have watched that after putting coconut oil to their diet, they are less-inclined to snacking.

Coconut Oil Weight Loss Since it slows down the digestion process, it also slows down the rate at which carbohydrates are broken down into blood glucose. This will help coconut oil to prevent the blood sugar changes after a meal.

Coconut oil is very good for removing the toxins from the body. It cleanses the body of toxins, nourishes the cells and balances the digestive tract. These positive benefits restore our health and provide the way for natural coconut oil.

Tips for using coconut oil to lose weight

Choose the correct kind of coconut oil for weight loss. Organic, unrefined extra virgin coconut oil is the best one as it preserves most of the natural goodness of the coconut oil.

Initially, start with one teaspoon a day and gradually increase to incorporate 4-5 tablespoons per day in your diet.

Green Coffee 800 Review

Green coffee 800 actually is not an extract from coffee beans. It called coffee because it still has caffeine, but only half of what real black coffee has. Green Coffee 800 Formula is a “drug-free” dietary supplement developed from a blend of herbal extracts. It contain ingrediants 70 mg Calcium, 250 mcg Chromium Picolinate and 700 mg Proprietary Herbal Bend: Green tea leaf standardized extract. It claim to reduce your appetite and stimulate body to burn calories and lose weight. The ingredient that reduce appetite called Chromium dinicotinate and green tea. Ginseng helps keep body energy up, Green tea also influence mental activity.

[easyazon-link asin=”B007XWFFD0″]For weight loss Buy Green Coffee 800 – Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract [/easyazon-link]

 

Green Coffee Extract Review

Extract of Green Coffee is a powerful natural antioxidant. It produced from real coffee beans. One pack of Green Coffee Extract by Source Naturals contain 69 mg of Calcium and 500 mg of Green Coffee Bean Extract. Green coffee extract has been shown to support normal cellular regeneration and growth.

Latest research has proved that Green Coffee Extract can promote weight loss but the effect is very small the effect is small, and the clinical relevance of this effect is uncertain.

Even two products above have similar names, they should not be compared together. While Green Coffee 800 does not have any real coffee extract, it does promote weight loss, at the same time real Green Coffee extract has proven to have little influence on weight loss but benefit to the overall health.

Breastfeeding and weight loss

Right after mother had a baby, here stars the rapid phase of weight loss during the next first six weeks.

Not only is breastfeeding better for the baby, however, research also says it’s better for the mother. Breastfeeding burns an average of 500 calories a day, with the typical range from 200 to 600 calories burned a day. It’s estimated that the production of 1 oz. of breast milk burns 20 calories. The amount of calories burned depending on how much the baby eats. Breastfeeding twins burn twice as much as feeding only one baby. With twins their mom burns 1000 calories a day. Burning an extra 500 calories a day will result in one pound of weekly weight loss.
Studies have shown that breastfeeding mothers lose more weight after pregnancy than bottle-feeding moms. Another study discovered that breastfeeding for at least 6 months leads to lower maternal weight gain several years later.

Exercising With a BabyDoctors advice that moms should eat healthy too. They should consume at least 2,400 calories a day. Even you are loosing weight while breastfeeding, you still should watch what you eat. As usually, you should avoid junk and fattening food, don’t drink sodas, consume proteins and fruits.
If you feel like it, you can go ahead and exercise too. Researches have proved that being active will not impair your milk supply if you are breastfeeding.

When loosing weight after pregnancy, it’s very important to take it slowly. Remember, that your body had stressful time gaining weight rapidly during 9 months. Avoid following aggressive diets and overexercising. Being healthy is a priority.

Other breastfeeding benefits for mothers are…

– Lowering the risk of breast and ovarian cancer
– Possibly leading to stronger bones
– Possible reduced risk of rheumatoid arthritis
– Reduce postpartum depression
– Lower the risk of type 2 diabetes

Calories burned breastfeeding a baby equals the calories burned jogging for few miles.
