According to a gastroenterologist, this food boosts fat burning

When looking to lose weight quickly and effectively, there is no secret: everything depends on a balanced diet and regular physical activity. The aim is essentially to restart your metabolism in order to stimulate fat burning. As a reminder, metabolism is the process by which our body converts what we eat and drink into energy. A faster metabolism means a greater ability to burn calories and fat, even at rest.

Although there are no miracle foods for losing weight or burning fat, some can help stimulate this process, as confirmed by several health experts. Like the Dr. Saurabh Sethian American gastroenterologist, also known as @doctorsethimd on social networks. In a video posted on TikTok, he reveals his list of foods that help burn fat.

As reported Current wife, among these which can contribute to weight loss, coconut oil stands out for its numerous slimming benefits. And for good reason, as the doctor explains, it contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), a particularly beneficial type of fatty acid. Unlike long-chain triglycerides, MCTs are quickly absorbed by the body and used as an immediate source of energy, instead of being stored as fat.

How Coconut Oil Can Help Boost Metabolism?

The MCTs found in coconut oil are metabolized differently from other fats. They are transported directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into energy, which can increase metabolic rate and promote fat burning.

Consumption of MCTs can increase thermogenesis, or the body’s production of heat. This thermogenic process contributes to an increase in basal metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories at rest. Some studies also suggest that MCTs can reduce appetite.

Consumption of coconut oil may contribute to a longer feeling of fullness, thereby reducing overall calorie intake. Certain fatty acids in coconut oil may increase the production of certain satiety hormones, such as leptin.

How to integrate coconut oil into your daily diet?

It is quite simple to include coconut oil in your daily diet. As a replacement for other cooking oils, in your smoothies, coffees or teas, in salad dressings. It can also enrich soups, curries, energy bars, and homemade chocolates. Start with one teaspoon per day and gradually increase. Preferably choose extra virgin, unrefined, cold-pressed coconut oil for the best nutritional benefits.
