Few things will throw off your well-intentioned weight loss plans faster than “the snack attack.” And when you’re stressed or tired, running around like a loon or dealing with office politics, you’re more likely to reach for the carbs to dampen the cortisol response.
Here’s where MCTs come in.
Research has shown that MCTs influence the secretion of hormones that regulate appetite. When you eat MCTs, the ketones produced suppress “ghrelin,” known as the “hunger hormone”. However, just a couple of tablespoons of MCT Oil is enough to keep you from reaching for the toast, jammy croissants and cereal first thing in the morning.
If you’re intermittent fasting or skipping breakfast, MCTs are an absolute lifesaver, as they provide nourishment and energy to get you going, first thing in the morning, without getting in the way of your well intentioned fast. Adding some MCT Oil or Powder to your morning tea or coffee, to get you fired up and keep you away from the carbs, is the perfect way to start your day.
