Do you use Coconut Oil to feel full sooner and for longer?
It has been said that eating a small amount of Coconut Oil can lead to some level of feeling “satiation”. That is the feeling your brain creates when it thinks your meal should be finishing. Some people would benefit if they feel full sooner.
“Satiation” refers to the end of desire to eat after a meal, and this can occur at any time after the onset of eating. – FoodProcessing.com
I have certainly experienced such a feeling before.
Dr Bruce Fife states that adding some Coconut Oil, or even just dried Coconut to food you eat in the morning can mean you feel full longer.
Our customer Jen Herd wrote into us and explained that she had made a toasted muesli which she attributed to her gradual and sustained weight loss. I believe one of the benefits of this recipe is “the Coconut Oil effect” of satiation. She felt full for longer and probably ate less during the day. I know I have when add Coconut Product to my morning diet.
