Are you eating beneficial fats?
You may have heard that fat is the enemy but it’s not that simple. Some fats, such as the naturally occurring saturated fats found in coconut oil, are actually good for you.
Coconut Oil: MySmart™ Choice!
Not all fats are created equal. Coconut oil is primarily made up of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These types of fatty acids are processed differently by the body than its cousin the long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), which are found primarily in animal foods. Coconut oil doesn’t seem to raise your cholesterol and is more likely to be burned as energy than stored as blubber. Why? Because MCTs are oxidised to a greater degree and more efficiently than are LCTs, and have less of an opportunity for deposition into adipose (fatty) tissue.
A fat that doesn’t make you fat. Consumption of MCT’s from coconut oil has been shown to increase metabolism through an increase in thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is the body’s ability to produce heat which therefore allows the body to utilise more energy.
Coconut oil can be used as a tool in weight reduction. An increase in metabolism and energy utilisation means the body burns more fuel, ie. fat. This demonstrates coconut oil’s utility as a novel weight reduction tool.
Coconut oil keeps you fuller for longer. Feeling full is another benefit of consuming coconut oil.

USANA’s MySmart™Bars are a great way to get the nutrition you need. These delicious foods contain coconut oil, an excellent source of naturally occurring saturated fats, and contain a beneficial balance of other macronutrients to fuel your body and leave you feeling satisfied.

So what it so important about wholefoods and what are the benefits?
Whole foods are foods that are closest to their natural state and that means they give us more nutrients than highly refined foods. They are often made up of grains, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes.
Whole foods contain a wide variety of nutrients in one food. These nutrients include phytonutrients, essential fatty acids and fibre. Whole foods are also rich in essential vitamins, minerals that cannot be synthesised in the body and therefore have to be obtained through diet.
Some of the benefits you will see from eating more whole foods include:
Better Digestion: Whole foods are high in fibre which is an essential nutrient for healthy, digestion, and heart health combined. Whole foods are full of natural insoluble and soluble fiber to support digestion and regularity, along with keep you full.
More Satisfaction: Whole foods are delicious and filling. Their wide range means you can choose lots of different things to eat without the added nasties. After eating them your body is able to digest easily and best of all you’re not left feeling sluggish or over full, but instead satisfied and healthy.
