MCT Oil for Fat Loss

Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

Do you want to tighten up this summer? Maybe shed a few extra pounds? What if you still want to keep your muscle and just rev up your metabolism so you become a fat burning machine, but you want to stay anabolic at the same time? That is a tough goal to achieve but you can do it, especially with MCT Oil!

What MCT Oil Is

First things first, MCT Oil is a healthy fat which is extracted from coconut oil, and it has a number of benefits. MCT Oil powers your brain and makes you a concentration master with great focus and memory. In addition, if you are looking for aesthetic effects, MCT Oil speeds up thermogenesis like crazy. That means you will be getting leaner in no time! So how will MCT Oil work for you?

How MCT Oil Works

mct oilMCT Oil, when consumed, will start converting into energy right away. This means that you won’t store MCT Oil as fat. So how does giving you more energy help burn fat? Because this energy is actually triggering thermogenesis, which is a process that heats up your body and starts burning up fat for energy. Essentially your turning your body into a fat burning furnace! MCT Oil is a fat, so that means it is higher in calories than carbohydrates and proteins are, but that doesn’t mean your going to get fat if you consume a lot of MCT Oil because MCT Oil is helping speed up your bodies metabolism and also helping to put you into a ketogenic state, where your body focuses on burning fat instead of breaking down muscle for energy. Okay so now that you know that MCT Oil is a fat burning fatty acid product that will give you more energy, more brain power, and a more defined mid-section, let's talk about how to take MCT Oil.

How Best to Use MCT Oil

What works the best for me is taking a tablespoon of MCT Oil on an empty stomach first thing in the morning and then I go for a fast paced walk. I followed this protocol for a week and couldn’t believe on how fast I started to burn fat. You can also take MCT Oil with or in between meals, and I recently started putting it on all my food. One more great thing you can do is mix it into your coffee, because this way you will get a double fat burning effect, great focus, and long lasting energy. The only thing I have to say about MCT Oil is: Start off slow! This is because if you take too much MCT Oil at once you might get the runs, so start off with 0.5-1 tablespoon per serving and you can move your way up to 2 or more tablespoons. MCT Oil is a great fat burning product that has many health benefits, so you definitely have to try it. Oh, and if you already have a fat burner you can stack MCT Oil with it too. Great products to stack with MCT Oil are:

  • L-Carnitine
  • Raspberry Ketone
  • Green Coffee Bean
  • Green Tea Extract

If you are looking for a specific brand of MCT Oil, try MCT Oil by PVL or Mutant MCT Oil. They both work great.
