HOW TO ADD COCONUT OIL TO ANY DRINK FOR INCREASED WEIGHT LOSS

June 18, 2015 2 min read

If you haven’t already heard, coconut oil is an amazing substance that can be used for almost anything. Coconut oil has many benefits to being consumed, including being antibacterial and anti-fungal which can kill off infections in the body. It contains medium chain triglycerides, which are different from our normal diet of long chain fatty acids and is metabolized differently in the body. This compound has been proven to hold therapeutic effects on several brain disorders, including epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.
These medium chain fatty acids have also been studied in relation to our energy and have been concluded to increase energy expenditure by 5%, leading to significant long term weight loss. Eating coconut oil can also help make you feel full longer, so you reduce the amount of food you consume throughout the day
SO HOW DO WE ADD COCONUT OIL TO OUR DRINKS?
Try out coconut oil and watch the many benefits take place. There are many other uses for coconut oil, but drinking it in your morning juice or coffee can help kick start your day. Unfortunately, coconut oil is still oil; it doesn’t quite sit right in our drinks. It might be hard for first timers to use, but that hasn’t stopped people from trying out the delicious superfood! There are certain tricks you can use to help incorporate the oil into your drinks and make it super easy to use.
COCONUT OIL FOR COLD DRINKS
Coconut oil works best blended into thick cold drinks. Simply warm and melt down the desired amount of coconut oil to use in the drink and pour it in slowly as it’s blending. I’ve discovered that using an avocado in your green juices works amazing to thicken it up! Try this green juice before work for an energy boost and weight loss! Avocado Greens with Coconut Oil You’ll need:
  • ½ pineapple, cubed
  • 6 kale leaves
  • 1 pear
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 inch piece ginger
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Add everything except the avocado and coconut oil to your juicer. Once juiced, add to a blender. Place avocado into blender and blend briefly. Slowly add coconut oil while it is still blending (or add periodically if you need to stop your blender). Blend until smooth.
COCONUT OIL FOR HOT DRINKS
Again, coconut oil works best in something thick. But if you’re looking to drink some tea before bed, coconut oil can also be incorporated by mixing it with honey first. This helps it to melt and mix into the drink better so you can avoid large clumps in your drink.
Lemon Tea with Coconut Oil
You’ll Need:
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1-3 tsp coconut oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 bag green tea (or loose leaf)
  • Hot water
Mix together honey and coconut oil in a mug. Add tea, water, and lemon juice. Steep until desired strength is reached. You may experience clumping, but simply continue mixing tea to avoid.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
