Default MCT Oil

Anyone else use MCT oil as part of their diet? I've got a bottle on order that should get here this week. I tried it for the first time about a week and a half ago while visiting my uncle in Arizona. He made me bullet proof coffee one morning. Damn if I didn't get a big kick from it.

Reading up on the benefits of MCT oil, it seems like it's too good to be true, but the research backs it up.

Default Re: MCT Oil

MCT Oil, or medium-chain triglyceride oil. Derived from coconut oil. When ingested, it gets converted directly to energy, rather than go into the normal digestion process as typical long-chain triglycerides do.

I doubt any since it's a fat and not a carb. I'll let you know when I get mine, as I'm type II as well.

Default Re: MCT Oil

Ive been taking MCT oil since January. I'm down 20lbs (without diet changes) while adding 30lbs to my bench and squat, and 35 to my deadlift. Just be careful with the dose, google "mct panic pants" for more information there.

Default Re: MCT Oil

Oh, I found out about too large a dosage. Nothing bad but more trips to the John that day. The bottle showed up on the porch today. Took a tsp before heading out on a walk. Not sure if it was psychological but I had more get up and go the first 20 mins.

Just an update. Been taking about 1 tbsp a day since I got the bottle of oil. I've lost about 3-4 lbs with maybe only a slight increase in exercise.

Default Re: MCT Oil

Thanks for the info on the MCT oil Bob. Back in the mid to late 80's, I used to take Twin Lab's MCT Fuel prior to workouts (whether weight training or going out for a jog). Lots of energy enjoyed and fat loss. However, since its flavored orange, I never did give it a shot in coffee

http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/twinl...1#.Vu9sBtB7yJc


I did look-up the BulletProof web page, and the recipe for the BulletCoffee, using the XCT Oil, BulletProof Coffee, and grass-fed butter looks interesting. Will probably have to try the Brain Octane too

http://www.bulletproof.com/nutrition/quality-fats/


Will keep you posted...

Default Re: MCT Oil

Interested to hear your thoughts Mark. I quit using MCT oil after my bottle ran out. Just never bothered to reorder.

As for the idea of bullet proof coffee, I think any coffee will work. I should try this again now that my normal grocery carries Kerrygold butter.

In regards to the coffee, that was my thoughts too!

Default Re: MCT Oil

Be careful Perry, when you first start taking it. It can have a laxative effect, like castor oil.

You may want to monitor your resting pulse and blood pressure before you start taking it and while taking it. Best to know and be in control.

Why's that, does it raise it?

You won't know until you confirm it.

Not saying, don't take MCT at all, but be certain of what is going on with your vitals.

After living through Epinephrine and GHB eras of supplements, I side to caution.
