Did you know that U.S. cattle farmers used to feed cows coconut oil to get them fat quickly, but it had the direct opposite effect? The cows became extremely lean, toned, and healthy. This is because coconut oil actually burns fat as fuel, instead of storing it for later.
Coconut oil also helps to regulate blood sugar, improve skin complexion, & boost the immune system, as this oil contains many anti-viral & anti-microbial properties. Who knew that eating fat can get you thin?
(Side Note: Today, cattle are given corn/vegetable oils to get them fat and weak so that their meat is much more tender and palatable for consumers. Yet these are the very oils that we are told are "heart healthy" in America, and we are fatter and weaker than ever....just some food for thought.)
