Science is moving so fast we have to un-learn so many things these days.

Case in point: coconut is fattening.

“No, it’s not!” say many scientists and medics.

Dr Mark Hyman calls coconut fat ‘the secret fat that makes you thin’. (See our earlier post Triple Coconut Mango Weight-Loss Smoothie.)

 

But not only that, it has many other benefits. It can boost your metabolism to help burn more calories, improves cholesterol levels, lowers blood pressure and improves heart health, it can reduce appetite and thus make you eat less, to name but a few.

Dr Axe says that coconut milk …

Builds Muscle and Helps Lose Fat

 

Studies find that medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) fatty acids found in coconut milk increase energy expenditure and help enhance physical performance. Following exercise, muscles also need plenty of nutrients — including electrolytes like magnesium and potassium that are found in coconut milk — to repair broken down tissue and grow back even stronger.

 

Because coconut milk is high in healthy fats, it also helps fill you up and prevent overeating or snacking throughout the day, which derail your efforts to improve your body composition.
