I started learning about MCT oil when I first started experimenting with Bulletproof Coffee (I make my own Bulletproof Shakeology drink). I found that it helped curb my cravings… BIG TIME.
MCT oil is a medium-chain triglyceride derived from coconut oil. It’s 18x more concentrated than regular coconut oil, so regular coconut oil is not a substitute. MCT oil provides a quick source of brain fuel from fats, which supposedly improves mental performance. It has been scientifically proven to speed metabolism, boost energy and curb cravings. I add 1-2 teaspoons per Shakeology drink (or add to anything – coffee, salad dressing, etc.).
If you have the 21 Day Fix, you can learn more about it the information that came with your program. It’s something Autumn Calabrese uses during the 3-Day Quick Fix.
You can purchase MCT oil on Amazon.com for less than most other places I’ve found. I highly recommend it to my challengers who find that they struggle with cravings. Look for an organic, cold-pressed oil and pay attention to the product ratings.
