If you are doing the metabolic diet/anabolic diet; I tend to agree "somewhat" with the mindset of avoiding the MCT's
That said, what he fails to mention in that brief perspective is that fat burning is not only MUCH more complex than the linear depiction he conveys but moreover, he neglects to mention that fat burning lasts well-past the "training session" time period.
So, to play devil's advocate here; if you fail to burn bodyfat DURING your workout in lieu of the MCT's, fine - well - tose MCT's can only last so long (unless you are unsensical ingesting copious amounbts of course). PWO fat burning will still take place.
ALL forms of ketogenic diets; the Anabolic one included, can impart lethargy to some degree. I speak from experience. A shot of MCT's pre-w/o can ameliorate this lack of energy thusly giving you a better workout - end result? MORE FAT BURNING and MORE MUSCLE
PS: This part has more holes in in than swiss cheese. WTH
1) Getting in the proper amount of calories (any type of fat AND/OR protein will have an anti-catabolic effect)The long chain triglycerides utilized in the Metabolic Diet also have several advantages over the MCTs. They have an ever greater protein-sparing effect than the MCTs. And along with decreasing the formation of bodyfat, they increase the amount of existing bodyfat broken down and greatly decrease bodyfat levels.
2) BCAA's - especially the timing of; will also protect you ifd you are concerned
3) I'd LOVE to see the PROOF for his comments related to long chain tri's possessing certain attributes that magically.....Errrrrrrrrrrrr HUH!?!?!?!!?!?!physiologically increase the amount of existing bodyfat broken down and greatly decrease bodyfat levels
