Extra tips:

Remember that young, immature coconut produces more water than brown, mature coconut which produces more meat.

One young coconut contains coarsely 140 calories, 28 gr. carbohydrates, 2 gr. fiber, 3 gr. fat, and 2 gr. protein.

One mature coconut contains coarsely 1405 calories, 60 gr. carbohydrates, 36 gr. fiber, 133 gr. fat, and 13 gr. protein.

The flesh of a brown coconut contains mostly saturated fat (1 cup of meat it is equal to 283 calories and 26.8 gr. of fat), it is an MCT (medium chain tryglyceride) which is broken down much faster than long chain fatty acids (which can be find in approximately all other saturated fats). Studies have shown that MCT’s can help to lower cholesterol levels by raising good cholesterol (HDL). But this fat is used by your body immediately instead of storing it for later use, and that is why is good for weight loss.

Your Routine During the Fast

During the fasting, coconut water must be the only thing going into your stomach.

Drink 1.5-2 l of coconut water per day. Cut out a fresh coconut and drink the coconut water immediately. Don’t keep the coconut water stored.

If you feel that you need to drink or eat something else that coconut water, you can drink a homemade veggies and fruits juice. Don’t eat any hard food during the fasting.
