19. Coconut oil
“Because coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), it is metabolized differently than fats from other oils,” Schmitt explains. Early studies have shown replacing some fats in the diet with MCTs may induce some weight loss, although more research is needed here, Schmitt says. How should you use it? Try tossing air-popped popcorn lightly in coconut oil, or use it as a replacement for butter on toast or in the pan before scrambling eggs, she suggests. Just remember to use the oil occasionally since, like other oils, it is high in calories.
