How it works:
Coconut oil is very special because it contains medium-chain fatty acids, instead of long-chain fatty acids. The medium-chain fatty acids are quickly used for energy as soon as they enter the body, and in that way they give your metabolism a helpful boost.
A study has shown that by eating 1-2 tablespoons of medium-chain fats per day (such as coconut oil), you will increase energy expenditure by 5% and that total to 12 calories per day for an average person.
