Have You Had Your Coconut Today?

I joke that my muscle mass and loss of body fat has been due to increased consumption of bacon and coconut water.  Though I jest, there is more validity to it then most would like to admit!  Here is a great article from My Mad Methods (a great new site to me):

How would you like to have tons of energy, build your immunity, cure what ail's you, and lose some weight in the process? The first thing I would say is: "Have you had your coconut today?"
The coconut embodies the definition of "Superfood” to the fullest extent. Every aspect of the coconut in every form (coconut oil, coconut water, coconut meat; less coconut cream pie of course), yields countless benefits. Once you know what coconuts can do for your body, you’d be crazy not to incorporate them into your diet plan. 
From athletes looking to increase performance to the couch potato looking to lose some weight and ward off disease, the coconut has something for everyone.  Here is a short list of the benefits of coconuts:
  • Weight Loss
  • Increased Immunity
  • Maintain Cholesterol Levels
  • Proper Digestion & Metabolism
  • Avoid Heart Disease
  • Bone Strength
  • Dental Care
  • Skin Care
  • Hair Care
  • Antifungal, Antiviral, Antibacterial
  • Helps Prevent Liver Disease
  • Helps Control Blood Sugar
  • Improves Mineral Absorption
  • Reduces Viral Susceptibility
