Frankly, fitness may be the last thing in your mind this Christmas. All the memories of how much fun you’ve had last year are still screaming in your ears telling you there’s just not enough time to get all the party going – which is kind of a drag for not just you but most everyone too. Still the same, you wouldn’t want to be limited this season. Surprisingly, that’s exactly why natural coconut products are spot on.
It’s true; just about every breathing human on Earth can attest, Christmas is the one temptation of a feast that’s too hard to resist. Not unless you’ve got some tricks on the table, you’re walking on thin ice.
Fats Galore and Ho Ho! Heart Attack
Wherever you may go, the season is a series of party without let up. More often than not, overindulgence is the name of the game. Dark chocolates, champagne, booze, the list could go on and on.
On average Christmas feast means 6,000 calories is waiting for you, Daily Mail reveals. No wonder tummies seem to hyper-grow as the season passes.
The sad part’s all the accumulated fats is bad news.
Just lately, ground-shaking research points a finger to wider waistlines having direct link to shorter lifespans. Creepy right? But the conclusions taken from over 600,000 people and their time here on Earth in about 11 studies is hard to refute.
Add the scientific community’s findings that heart attack spike most on Christmas Day to the table and your back seem to be flat on a wall when Santa comes to town.
Certainly, sounds like a double whammy indeed.
Natural Coconut Products to the Rescue
Thankfully for you and me, there’s still tons of hope for the Christmas season – and rightfully so. What could be a Christmas lifesaver comes from the East, a fruit found predominantly in Asia: coconuts.
For years now, natural coconut products (e.g. pure coconut oil, coconut flour, coconut sugar) have proven to be just what the doctor ordered for the yuletide season.
Studies show the oil in these coconut products is so unlike any other vegetable oil that has flooded the market for years now. First and foremost, the fats in coconut oil – MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) – do not add up to your weighing scale. Quite simply, they do not get stored in the body as flab.
Further, more than skirting the problem of the accumulation of fat in the human body, a complication identified mostly with a lot of vegetable oils and delicious junk foods in the market today, natural coconut products are a natural energy booster as their MCTs go directly to the liver, rapidly being converted into energy.
In short, not only do you get closer to your washboard abs with natural coconut products, you get to have more energy.
And Then Some
Further, natural coconut products are rich in nutrients (e.g., antioxidants, lauric acid). Because of these they give formidable protection (e.g., antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory) in times of the party season. And if you’re worried about your cholesterol, coconut oil also promotes healthy cholesterol or HDL giving you greater reason to maximize on them.
The best part’s incorporating natural coconut products in your diet is no sweat – especially true in your family tradition this season. Instead of using sugar for instance, you can make the most of organic coconut nectar syrup, a delectable treat if you ask me.
And yes, it may just be a small adjustment but it could go a long way to a slimmer waistline for you – not to mention a happier year-ender celebration for everyone.
