This is one of the first things people think of when they think of keto MCT Oil. Should you add it to your coffee?
MCT Oil is a great addition to any keto diet, but like with most things - there are pro's and cons.
Helps keep your appetite down
May stall your weight loss
Can cause weight gain
Can cause digestion issues if too much is taken
I like to take MCT oil in the beginning to help my body become fat adapted as I'm transitioning off of sugar/carbs and into fat for fuel.
However, after you become fat adapted would be a good time to cut it out to allow your body to tap into it's own fat reserves for fuel.
It's best to start out with just a small amount of MCT oil at a time. Maybe 1/2 tsp to test your tolerance.
How it can be taken:
You can add it to hot or iced coffee.
You can add it to hot water and add chocolate collagen to make a creamy chocolate night time drink.
You can add it to food like salad dressings.
All in all I think it's a great thing to add. If your weight stalls with it, cut it out and track the change.
We will be launching a clean keto line of MCT creamers in the next few weeks so keep an eye out for those!
Flavors will be:
Vanilla Ice Cream
