In order to support those pesky sugar cravings, which not only manifest in reaching for a mars bar, but all things carby too, you should add a heaped teaspoon into your hot drink of choice. Ditch the milk and add MCT Powder into your coffee, tea, cacao based hot chocolate or matcha to prevent those dreaded insulin spikes, which only make you reach for more, more and a bit more. You could also pop a heaped teaspoon into shakes, sauces, soups, full fat Greek yoghurt, scrambled eggs, protein pancakes, salad dressings to name a few other ways of how to sneak in that sneaky nutrition. Whatever you add it to, just ensure that it’s not carb heavy and it’s not processed fare. Spreading 5 heaped teaspoons across your day will support you in becoming fat adapted and help you to back away from the biscuit tin!
If you are a regular hacker, you will likely engage in intermittent fasting and follow a keto diet. If losing or maintaining weight is your main motivation, you need to use a little less MCT Powder than a new hacker. The likelihood is, you have developed the ability to shut down some of your sugar cravings and can get ahead of the hunger pangs.
During your fast, pop one heaped teaspoon in your morning coffee and do the same in your late morning cuppa too. This way, you will be able to pop some collagen in as well and still remain under your 100 calories during your fasting period.
If you are an expert hacker, you will be fat adapted and, much like a regular hacker, will only need up to two heaped teaspoons of MCT Powder during your fasting period, leaving some calories for our amino rich bovine collagen supplement.
