  3. why would a fat not be keto friendly?

  4. because it is a MTC and acts like a carb. Maybe thomas rivera can chime in and get more technically about it. Also in the anabolic diet book dr. maurio dipsquale recomends against its use for the same reasons

  5. here ya go

    It’s also important to note that Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) get a big thumbs down
    for use in the Anabolic Diet. Very few foods actually contain MCT’s, but you’ll find many people
    are very big on MCT supplements, most of which are derived from coconut oil. They’ll say,
    “It’s fat, why can’t we use it?” but it basically bypasses the whole energy pathway we’re trying to
    establish with the Anabolic Diet and can be very counterproductive.
    MCT’s can be of great use on a diet high in complex carbs because of its protein sparing
    effects. But on the Anabolic Diet, the body, instead of using the long chain fatty acids that make
    up most body fat, uses the MCT’s. The body ends up bypassing the very metabolic processes
    that the Anabolic Diet sets up: to burn its own fat and use the long chain fatties as a primary
    energy source.
    The long chain triglycerides utilized in the Anabolic Diet also have several advantages over
    the MCT’s. They have an even greater protein-sparing effect than the MCT’s. And along with
    decreasing the formation of bodyfat, which the MCT’s also do, they increase the amount of
    existing bodyfat broken down and greatly decrease bodyfat levels.
    A lot of people will be tempted to run down to the health food store and buy some MCT’s
    to be used on this diet, but don’t bite. They’ll actually work against the diet in terms of muscle
    production and fat breakdown.

  6. thanks for the info reps

  7. no prob ... there is actually some debate over this online. I have read some people feel coconut oil is fine and actually helps you get into ketosis faster. I just stay away .. bette safe then sorry type deal. Plus I get enough fat fom other sources I dont need coconut oil, but I do take it on cheat days hoping to reap some of its many benefits
