Coconut oil and fat loss
- 12-24-2013, 01:34 PM
It's harder for MCT's to convert to fatty acid forms that can be reabsorbed and stored as body fat. The great thing about MCT is how they get metabolized quickly and into ketones. So if you use MCT rich fats/oils such as coconut oil in place of things like butter or cooking needs, there could be some benefits there.
At the end of the day though, if you are eating excessive calories that fatten you up, it's your caloric intake which you should be concerned about TBH.

i've been using coconut oil for awhile now....i put it in my morning coffee, used to put it in my protein shake, i've also cooked with it and didn't 'mind it, but other ppl swear they taste coconuts when i used it for cooking
it just sucks because my ex gf's aunt runs a health store and got me a gallon of organic coconut oil for $1, i'm running low, have to find where i can get a gallon of it again

Anybody eat much of the banana chips you can find in many stores? Usually consists of bananas, coconut oil and sugar.

it melts easily, then just use a blender to make it mix well.

Just blend a little longer. There may be small chunks but it doesn't matter. Throw some in your coffee too

not saying this applies to you specifically, but:
if you are avoiding butter simply due to what you "hear" in the media, you have taken a turn down the wrong path indeed
and let me also state the obvious:
just because coconut butter has unique properties (ie mct formation), this does NOT mean one can consume this fat with reckless abandon....a fat is still a fat, in the grand scheme of things

I'm a little confused here, So is coconut oil more rapidly absorbed than other fats? Would this possibly facilitate faster absorption of other fat soluble nutrients vs the use of other oils? Or is it just a matter of the energy from the mct's is produced faster?

What are people's thoughts on the whole avoiding carbs with fat approach in respect to this? That's one area I've found tricky, keeping fat and carbs high but separate in my 8 hour eating window (I follow 16/8 fasting protocol).

there is no finite amount of fats you can consume with carbs, w/o adding to bodyfat stores..is individual
but my own preference, when I have hi carbs conversely I maintain lower fats, and vice versa
specifically: if I am over 20g fat in a feeding, then I am under 50g carbs carbs concurrently
if I am having say 75g carb+, I will keep fats lower than 15g (and usually more like 12g or less), and the higher the crabs the lower the fat consumed
in your own pattern of eating however, you cannot do that realistically; just shoot for daily overall splits, in that instance
and if you want to take your dietary maneuvers to the next level, then start being conscious of not just the macros, but (more importantly) the micros of those macros

Then my pre bed meal (2 hours pre) has more fat, less carbs... Eating out on this plan has become tough though. Bc u don't know what they cook with usually, and a simple chicken dish could have hidden fat. 'Merica lol
