Did you know that some fats are actually good for you?
Contrary to popular wisdom, what we refer to as "fats" are not the same as the fat on your body. And some "fats" (they are actually acids, but that is a different story) can help to boost your metabolism--enhance thermogenesis. Chief among them is Coconut Oil. Far superior to carbohydrates!
Why? I'll tell you if you are interested. Or you can do the research yourself, which is far better.
