3. Reduced Hunger & Cravings
One interesting feature of the fatty acids in coconut oil is that they can actually help you lose weight. MCTs are digested differently than other types of fats. They go directly to the liver and are used as ready energy or else turned into ketones.
Ketones are a type of acid made in the liver from fat to be used as energy. In conjunction with other efforts, eating more coconut oil could translate into weight loss. More than that, coconut oil may help reduce hunger. Studies show that people who eat the most MCTs in the morning eat fewer calories total throughout the day.
