Yahoo Health recently posted an article about 5 fatty foods that will actually make you skinny! Coconut and coconut oil were of course included in the Top 5 foods. Here is an excerpt from the article:
“1. Grass Fed Beef
2. Olive Oil
3. Coconut. Coconut is high in saturated fat, but more than half of that comes from lauric acid, a unique lipid that battles bacteria and improves cholesterol scores. And get this: A study published in Lipids found that dietary supplementation of coconut oil actually reduced abdominal obesity. Of the participants, half were given two tablespoons of coconut oil daily and the other half were given soybean oil, and although both groups experienced overall weight loss, only the coconut oil consumers’ waistlines shrunk. Sprinkle unsweetened flakes over yogurt or use coconut milk in a stir-fry to start whittling your waist.
4. Dark Chocolate
5. Almond Butter”
