Special Weight Loss Tip: Drink Your Coconut Oil
Monday, December 07, 2009
Want a surefire way to escalate weight loss? Twenty minutes before each meal, take some coconut oil!
By mealtime coconut’s satiation effect will be in full force, so that you won’t be hungry. You may even feel full before finishing your meal, so that you will eat less and lose weight.
The easiest way to take your coconut oil is to make a Coconut Infusion: place 1 to 2 tablespoons of softened coconut oil into a mug and add hot water (or hot herbal tea), allowing the oil to melt before drinking. Use the following formula to determine the amount:
• If you weigh 90-130 pounds, take 1 tablespoon coconut oil before each meal, for a total of 3 tablespoons per day.
• If you weigh 131-180 pounds, take 1½ tablespoons coconut oil before each meal, for a total of 4½ tablespoons per day.
• If you weigh over 180 pounds, take 2 tablespoons coconut oil before each meal, for a total of 6 tablespoons per day.
To keep coconut oil soft during the winter months, put it on top of your refrigerator, or above you stove, or in a warm cupboard.
