  • I found some power MCT oil on Amazon.  I'm debating about ordering it when I run out of my current oil.  I like to drink ice coffee and I think powder will  mix a bit better.

  • I think you might like the oil. Powder sometimes is difficult to blend and you get chunks. I have the oil and drink it in my coffee every morning with a tbsp of butter and full whipping cream. Delicious! I can't believe how focused I am and not hungry until about 1:00.

    Wireman11   Take your time !!! Very small amounts, gradually build up. Don鈥檛 open the bottle and glug it back like I did thinking I was all superhero 馃槼馃き馃槂 

    who would have thought a bit of coconut oil can totally floor you and empty your insides out within hours !

    Wireman11  I think I prob glugged about 50ml - it produces horrendous gas for 36 hours and literally rinsed my body out of anything in my intestines or bowels !!! 

    Like a homemade colonic irrigation ! 

    After 24 hours I鈥檝e never been so hungry and ravenous for food as I was totally EMPTY inside. 

     

    Go slow 5ml ( teaspoon) a day at first.

  • Joanna Hi, yes it is working, no more tummy aches.  I bought the MCT Oil Coconuts by Sports Research, I bought mine from Rite Aid drug store but they sell on Amazon as well.

  • mea76823480 I used TBS, but they suggest if new to the MCT oils try tsp for a week or so and working up to tbs...but if you can tolerate tbs go for it :)

  • Wireman11 Hi, just make sure the MCT oil is not expired and be sure to get rid of it when it does expire.  Also do not store any MCT oil in a plastic container, either keep in original bottle or in a ceramic oil bottle.

  • This may be a dumb question but since I鈥檓 new I鈥檝e got to ask. What is MCT oil and why/when are you taking it? I鈥檝e only been in this for 1 week so I鈥檓 still figuring it all out. Is this something I need to add to my meal plan?

    I鈥檓 new to MCT also. It鈥檚 a 鈥済ood鈥 fat that knocks you into ketosis (or something like that) it helps to UP your Fat macros and it is good in coffee to give you an energy HIT. 

     

    Thats my understanding 

     

    and if overdosed like I did - it is an entire body enemy that I never want to experience again in my life ! 馃槚馃ズ馃ぃ

  • Ej lol maybe I should try some. I鈥檓 still struggling to lose weight. No clue if I鈥檓 in ketosis or not. This is day 6 and that scale hasn鈥檛 moved. But I鈥檓 sticking with it. I鈥檝e double checked my macros and I鈥檓 usually under in all areas including calories. I鈥檓 definitely eating different and better so keto Sis or not I should lose

    something soon!

    I started 6 weeks ago - lost 7kg so far another 5kg to go to my target weight. I鈥檓 on the High Protein Keto. I do 10km a day walking and then weight training or circuit class 3-4 times a week. 

    My Net Carb intake is never over 5 g and my net calories about 500 a day - total calories usually about 1000. 

     

    I was a sugar addict - insanely so ! So my body has had a huge change that鈥檚 why it probably came off me pretty quick also. 

     

    I have been doing the fasting 18:6 for last 10 days to kick it harder.
