Eat good fats- Lose weight, Grow Brain

How MCT Oil May Aid Weight Loss

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have become increasingly popular as people are learning more about the health benefits of nutritional ketosis, which is achieved by replacing net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) with high amounts of healthy fats and moderate amounts of high quality protein.

Some of the health benefits of coconut oil relate to the MCTs in the oil. But  MCT oil is a more concentrated source, so it tends to be more appropriate for clinical uses, which include:1

  • Appetite reduction and weight loss2,3
  • Improved cognitive and neurological function with possible implications in neurodegerative diseases
  • Increased energy levels and improved athletic performance
  • Improved mitochondrial function and subsequent reduced risk for diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases and epilepsy4
  • As part of a specialized dietary therapy for the treatment of epilepsy
  • Prevention of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)5

lose weight MCT oil

Animal and human studies have demonstrated that MCTs enhance thermogenesis and fat oxidation, thereby suppressing the deposition and accumulation of body fat.9 In other words, they have a heating effect, and your body can readily use ketones as fuel for energy in lieu of carbs.

By helping your body burn fat and produce more ketones, MCTs provide you with effects that are very similar to those you would reap from a ketogenic diet, but without having to reduce your net carbs to as drastically low levels as you would on a ketogenic diet. Here's a small sampling of studies looking at MCTs' impact on weight:

One three-month-long, double-blind and controlled study10 found that long-term consumption of MCTs helped otherwise healthy adults lose significantly more subcutaneous body fat than those who took LCTs. All subjects consumed 60 grams of total fat per day.

The difference was the type of fat (MCT versus LCT). The energy, protein and carbohydrate levels were otherwise similar. According to the authors, "These results suggest that the MCT diet may reduce body weight and fat in individuals (BMI > or = 23 kg/m(2) more than the LCT diet."

A 2015 meta-analysis11 of 13 randomized controlled trials found that, compared to LCTs, MCTs more effectively decreased body weight, waist circumference, hip circumference, total body fat, total subcutaneous fat and visceral fat. There was no difference in blood lipid levels between the two fats.

 

It is important to realize that MCT oil will not produce weight loss miracles all on its own. However, it is an excellent addition to an otherwise healthy diet. Moreover, many consider MCTs "the ultimate ketogenic fat," as it allows you to eat slightly more net carbs while still staying in nutritional ketosis. Without MCTs, you'd have to cut carbs more drastically in order to maintain ketosis.

If you're serious about losing weight, review and implement the recommendations in my updated Nutrition Plan. It will guide you step-by-step. MCT oil is a healthy fat that I recommend using in addition to other healthy fats, which include:

Olives and olive oil (make sure it's third party-certified, as 80 percent of olive oils are adulterated with vegetable oils. Also avoid cooking with olive oil. Use it cold.)

Coconuts and coconut oil (excellent for cooking as it can withstand higher temperatures without oxidizing)

Butter made from raw grass-fed organic milk

Raw nuts, such as macadamia andpecans

Seeds like black sesame, cumin, pumpkin and hemp seeds

Avocados

Grass-fed meats

Lard and tallow (excellent for cooking)

Ghee (clarified butter)

Raw cacao butter

Organic-pastured egg yolks

Animal-based omega-3 fat such as krill oil and small fatty fish like sardines and anchovies
