    Coconut oil is high in MCTs (about 70% IIRC). About 50% of MCTs bypass the kidney and are metabolized as energy rather than utilized for energy storage (fat). If you're doing a lot of cooking Coconut Oil is a good choice for cooking oil

    I have had great success with it and get a high quality one for cheap at Whole Foods by me. I bought 2 in late February, just finished my second "tub" of it this week. Great for pre-workout with protein when dieting.

    I don't use it for weight loss, more for some healthy calories. I honestly haven't placed an order without including some coconut oil .

    Coconut Oil does raise testosterone and the calories are not know to be stored as fat, so maybe not weight loss, but definitely helps with body recomposition.

    I think he means cause it is a solid at room temp and you have to slightly warm it, then tables spoon it out.

    1 to 2 tablespoons a day is a good measure. you can do more if you want, just make sure to count the extra calories if you are trying to lose weight. I usually scramble eggs with it or use it anytime I fry anything in a pan. also a very good moisturizer.

    I take a tablespoon in place of carbs before my workout; now I have been doing this for a while and get a better workout from MCTs in EVCO than I do from pwo carb sources.

    I was just about to post this. Especially for folks on low carb or keto diets, MCTs pre-workout can feel as effective as carbohydrate for energy.

    Wow, that's good to know. I'm gonna test this out on my next cut which will be my first full keto diet.

    yep, the MCT's in coconut convert to energy wayyyyy faster than carbohydrates. the only real use for glycogen is for heavy lifting, up to 80% intensity your body can use body/dietary fat.

    Saturated fat in general is good for test. Let's not jump the gun and say that we need to put coconut oil in test boosters or anything. Im gonna start using cocconut oil again for the immune benefits though.

    Yes. MCTs enter the cell much easier than long or very long chain fatty acids.

    I typically have it around 3:00 PM and lift btw 4:30-5:00. I have taken it within an hour and still get the energy benefits. This is consumer along with 25-30 grams of whey protein.
