Food trends showed that 2017 would be the year of coconuts and not just coconut water but coconut butter, chips and ice cream. There is even talk of coconut being good for those who want to shed some pounds. Let’s find out if this is true:

Coconuts are Low in Carbs

Coconuts are good for people who are on a diet. One teaspoon of pure coconut flakes has 3.5 grams of carbs. Sugar in coconut is easily absorbed by the body. It’s also full of flavor and mixes well with smoothies and foods.

Coconut Keep Your Cravings in Check

The fat and sugar content in coconuts digest slowly and this helps you feel fuller for longer. Eating a coconut will give you plenty of energy and this prevents the occurrence of cravings helping to maintain your blood sugar levels.


Just like anything else, eat coconuts in small portions because they have plenty of saturated fats and calories.
