Coconut fruit contains oil that has a thermogenic effect, which means it has the ability to raise body temperature. This means metabolic rate and overall energy consumption which enables a person to lose weight more easily.
The fruit also has enzymes that increase the metabolism of the liver. The liver is then able to regulate sugar more efficiently, preventing increase in blood sugar levels which is associated with obesity.
Coconut is also full of medium chain fatty acids that cannot be stored in the body as fat. Eating coconut also makes one feel full easily to prevent over eating.
