Managing Cravings

An important question to ask before eating – am I hungry?

Eating when stressed happens to all of us. It is a normal part of life, however if it happens too often, it can lead to even more stress and no one needs that!

One of the key elements that I use personally in my health coaching business is to use the following method to determine is it physical or emotional hunger and the steps to break it down. I’ve also included a great guide to all our favorite “bad” food cravings, which breakdown the why behind the craving and what “healthy” food we should reach for to help us conquer this battle.

Coconut Oil Remedies

Coconut Remedies Infographic ~Dr. Axe shares some great uses for coconut oil. It’s such a versatile and helpful product – yet either not talked about enough or only talked about in negative ways.

Coconut oil might just be the most versatile health food on the planet. Not only is it my favorite cooking oil, but coconut oil uses are numerous and can extend to being a form of natural medicine, be used for natural beauty treatments and so much more.

 

 

Coconut Oil Nutrition Profile

Coconut oil, like other plant-based oils, does not contain cholesterol. The vast majority (more than 85%) of the fats in coconut oil are medium-chain triglycerides. These medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s) found in coconuts has tremendous health benefits; they are easy to for the body to burn as fuel for energy and have anti-microbial properties, in addition to other important traits.

Coconut oil contains three unique fatty acids that are responsible for its various health benefits:

  • Lauric acid
  • Capric acid
  • Caprylic acid

These are some of the rarest substances found in nature and the reason why this oil is so beneficial.

Lauric acid has a particular structure that allows the body to absorb it easily.  Once absorbed, it morphs into monolaurin, found in human breast milk, and coconut milk and oil. Monolaurin is known for its antiviral, anti-micorbial, and antibacterial properties.

In addition, coconut oil contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, phenolic acid, myristic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, and iron.

#CoconutOil uses are countless and can be used for everything from deodorant to toothpaste and body lotion to weight loss aid.
