Will eating coconut oil make me fat?

We just returned from the Adelaide Mind Body Spirit Festival.
As always it was fun and successful. I am so lucky to share these Magical times and Magical products with my gorgeous husband. Together we now scoot across the country doing our work.

A common question people often ask us is "Will eating coconut oil make me fat?"Once upon a time we were led to believe that fat is the enemy.

Everything became about low fat this and less fat that. What they forgot to tell us is the truth. That Trans-Fats are the enemy. Trans- Fats are formed when unstable oils are heated. They oxidise and become hydrogenated. They are found in all processed and fast foods. Commercial vegetable oils such as soy bean, canola, sunflower, safflower and peanut oils are hydrogenated, or partially hydrogenated. They are unstable and heated to high temperatures in their extraction process. To hide the rancidity they are then chemically tampered with. Sounds awful doesn't it? and yes these oils will make you fat and unhealthy.

Fat is vital for a healthy body. What matters more than how much fat we eat is what kind of fat we eat.It is our job to teach you that good fat is beautiful and just what your body needs to be nourished, healed, and energised. Good fats are those found in their natural states. Avocado, Coconut, Olive, Flax Seed Oils, Nuts and Seeds. All beautiful, natural, whole, and if processed, they are cold pressed. They will not make you fat. They will make you beautiful. 

Coconut oil is in fact quite the contrary from fattening. Coconut oil is a medium chain fatty acid that is converted by the liver directly into energy. Coconut oil assists with good metabolism, liver detox and natural body cleansing. For these reasons, coconut oil supports the body with weight loss.You can't be eating trans-fats and expect to lose weight. At least not in a healthy and sustainable manner.

So if you are serious about your health. Switch to cooking only with coconut oil and read all food label ingredients. If you see the words 'hydrogenated' or 'partially hydrogenated' on the label, you can be sure it will stick to your cells, your liver and eventually to your hips!. And I mean stick!Buy the best tasting coconut oil here. Ideal for cooking, for health and for skin care too.
