Eating more dietary fats like coconut oil fat bombs when you’re trying to slim down seems counterintuitive. That is also true if you are maintaining a healthy weight. But ketogenic diets suggest doing exactly that.
Ketogenic diet has recently been resurrected in the wildly popular low-carb/high-protein Paleo Diet. It is based on the idea that when the body is forced into ketosis, it burns fats instead of carbohydrates for energy. Burning more fat means more weight loss.
Healthy Eating Plans
Studies have shown that in the short-term, ketogenic eating plans can lead to faster-than-average weight loss. They can also be helpful in controlling blood sugar and minimizing insulin spikes. The problem comes with maintaining what is essentially a low-calorie diet in the long run.
Consuming the right amount of healthy dietary fats is important no matter what diet plan you’re on. But it’s especially crucial on a ketogenic diet. Fats keep us satisfied, helping us feel full even when overall calorie intake is restricted. But choosing the right fats is key. With the exception of coconut oil, most saturated fats, especially animal fats, should be avoided.
Coconut oil fat bombs are crave-busting bite-sized packages of instant energy. They keep you satisfied as you resist high-carb snacks. When done right, they provide the good-for-you fats the body needs. Yes, that is true. In fact, it doesn't have any bad-for-you extras you’d get from say, that delicious doughnut that won’t stop calling your name.
Fat bombs are typically made from healthy fats. Coconut oil, olive oil, nut butter, avocados or butter made from grass-fed cattle are among them. These bombs can be sweet or savory. They can also be as simple as scooping out a teaspoon of delicious cold-pressed coco oil. Or maybe, eating a teaspoon of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil straight from the jar into your mouth.
The term is trendy, but coconut oil fat bombs are really nothing new. Using pre-measured “bombs” is simply one way. Doing so will help make sure you get the desired amount of healthy fat in your diet.
