MCT Oil Then

Ordered and received a great big container of MCT oil this week. So what’s that? It’s an oil based around median chain triglycerides that I found out about after reading some internet bullshit about Bulletproof Coffee.

MCT supposed to have a troika of benefits:

  • Easily absorbable as an energy source
  • Doesn't deposit as fat easily
  • Promotes fat burning

It works well with lowish temperature frying or just as a salad dressing. A couple of days ago I had the below and it was incredible.

  • 1/2 avacado
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Stick of sliced celery
  • 45g of MCT oil
  • 2 rashers of bacon
  • V small dash of Paul Newman salad dressing
  • A few small cubes of stilton cheese
  • Big cup of coffee

Does it work? Hard to tell. I’ve been using for a few days now and it’s definitely coincided with a massive upswing in energy and some steady weight reduction after being on a plateau for a little while. The energy’s lead to a pretty large uptick in exercise but pretty much fatigue free.

Now I have phases like this anyway so it’s hard to say if this is one of those or if the MCT oil is playing a part here. I’ll keep on though, don’t really want to change anything as I’m feeling really good right now and managed to get a few cycling personal records as well :D The only down side so far is it's pretty expenisve, a whopping nealy thirty quid a litre from Amazon. Oh well.
