Bodybuilding.com - Coconut Oil: The Greatest Fat You've Never Tried

Bodybuilding.com - Coconut Oil: The Greatest Fat You've Never Tried | weight loss | Scoop.it
Looking for an undeniably healthy fat source that you can use for all types of cooking and baking? Look no further than the fat-burning, metabolism-boosting coconut!
EasyFitnessGuru's insight:

Once upon a time, coconut oil was the ultimate "bad fat" and was known to be used in trans fat-packed movie theater popcorn and other processed junk food. So is that type of coconut oil healthy? Definitely not! Here's the difference.

REFINED COCONUT OILExtracted using hexane or other solventsRefined, bleached, deodorized, and mixed with preservativesHydrogenated, reducing healthy saturated fat content and creating unhealthy trans fatsLinked to coronary heart disease and increased levels of "bad cholesterol"EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OILProcessed in ways that preserve the healthy fat contentLinked in studies to fat loss and improved coronary health markersResistant to oxidation and spoilingRegulated by the Asian and Pacific Coconut CommunityHas a light, pleasant coconut flavor and smell

The only coconut oil worth your time and money is extra-virgin coconut oil, which is sold either as a supplement or in tubs for cooking, as a white or off-white crumbly paste.

If you want to get the real story behind the hype about coconut oil, read this article.

EasyFitnessGuru's insight:

You needn't add beans to your morning bowl of cereal to get a protein-packed breakfast.

High-protein breakfast items have become hot items for good reason: Starting your day off with a hearty helping of the stuff has been shown to wake you up, stave off hunger, help you maintain a healthy waistline, and improve your chances of making better food selections throughout the the day.

No, you don't have to skip down Lentil Road to reap all the wonderful benefits of a morning meal rich in protein. To match General Mills, the following 19 breakfast recipes have at least 11 grams of protein.

Put Down that Doughnut! You Can't Out Exercise a Bad Diet | weight loss | Scoop.it
Contrary to popular believe, exercise does not reverse the effects of bad diet and in some cases, actually makes the situation far worse.

Via Demarcio Washington
EasyFitnessGuru's insight:
