Cooking with coconut oil helps boost metabolism?
The pressed white meat of the coconut produces coconut oil, a special type of saturated fat that actually increases calorie burning. Why? Coconut oil is made of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), making this type of oil much easier to digest. Studies show that after eating a meal containing these medium-chain triglycerides, metabolism increases 48 percent. Christine Avanti uses coconut oil to make stir-frys, searing fish, and as a butter substitute in baking. Check out Christine’s delicious Asian stir-fry using coconut oil.
