Coconut oil has been much discussed by those on hCG as a way to lose weight. We believe that coconut oil can boost energy, while decreasing cravings for carbohydrates and sweets. It is known to stimulate metabolism, improve digestion, and release fat cells. It also gently stimulates the thyroid.
Coconut Oil’s fat molecules are shorter than other fat molecules, which basically means that our bodies use them immediately for energy and do not store them as fat cells. Coconut Oil encourages the right kind of bacteria in the colon–it is the preferred food for the kind of bacteria you want to have there.
Coconut Oil is low in calories, low in fat, and nutritious, while providing the body with an energy source instead of carbohydrates. Every body is different and ever body reacts differently, so if you are one to stay away from it during any phase, try it and see how your body reacts. Most hCG users rant and rave about the use of Coconut Oil.
