7 Science-Based Benefits of MCT Oil

MCT oil is a supplement often added to smoothies, bulletproof coffee and salad dressings.

As the name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these fats.

MCT oil is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These fats are also found in many other foods, such as palm oil and dairy products (1).

Here are 7 science-backed benefits you can get from adding MCT oil to your diet.

STEP FIVE

Get 1% Better everyday – Two feet in!

  • Fall in love with the process
  • Do it everyday
  • Celebrate your commitment
  • Track your results

 

Set the intention, love what you do, think about it everyday and you will be successful in anything in life. That if you want it badly enough, you will achieve it. It can’t be that simple…or is it?

We can all fall short of our goals despite our best intentions. This is particularly true in the health and fitness world. For me, I’ve learned there’s more to it than loving what you do. Wanting it badly enough is only half the battle. Creating the necessity, falling in love with the process, and doing it everyday is the second half. I call that PASSION.

Understanding What It Means to Have Passion

Love is an intense emotion that can be the push to get you started. But love is just an emotion, and it’s fleeting. What happens when you’re faced with the reality of what it really takes to achieve your goals? That’s where passion comes in. Passion is where I live with everything I love to do. It is the emotion that drives me to be the best I can be. 24/7. Passion creates the necessity to perform and get 1% better daily.

How to boost your metabolism for maximum weight loss

How to boost your metabolism for maximum weight loss
Managing our weight is something we should do as a part of a healthy lifestyle. If the scale is moving up or down, we most likely know why. It is the cause and effect of our lifestyle management. More specifically, it is how we are governing our meal planning and training. However, even if you are managing your meal planning and training well, you may still be struggling to shed the pounds. If so, your slow metabolism may be the culprit.
Metabolism is defined as the speed that your body turns the calories you consume into useable energy. The stronger the metabolism, the more effortless it is to lose weight and keep it off. It is true, some people do have naturally high metabolisms and are blessed with good genetics. It is also true that we all store body fat differently and that might give the impression that we have less body fat (in clothes). But, for most of us, including me, it is a consistent commitment to working on some techniques can rev up a slow metabolism. It will take work by making efficient changes to your diet, exercise routine and lifestyle. But it can and will boost your metabolic rate and help with weight loss.

THE BEST INTERMITTENT FASTING MEALS FOR LOSING FAT

HOW TO USE INTERMITTENT CARB FASTING TO LOSE FAT

The A-B-C-D Express Guidelines

  • We will use carb fasting to jump start your body. (this means no carbs for 16 hours.)
  • I suggest you eat all your meals in a 6-8 hour eating window. In your case, maybe eating from 10am to 6pm (or 11-7pm).
  • I would also like you to start your day with something in your belly, but zero carbs. The purpose of this is to keep your body in a state of ketosis and eat the right foods to keep your body using fat for energy.
  • For the best results, do not eat 3-4 hours upon waking before having your first real meal. Your last meal should be around 3-4 hours before going to sleep.
