With summer almost upon us the gym is buzzing with people looking to jump start their slim-down programs. Low carb diets and high-rep training prescriptions are everywhere, but what if you just haven’t put on the bulk you desire, and you’re just not ready for a springtime cut? More importantly, what if you’re just a lanky individual – a “hard gainer” – year round and cutting just isn’t in your vocabulary? The last thing you want is to jump on the lean-out bandwagon. It’s time to start looking at some alternatives to help you get the mass you want, and ultimately achieve that tight, toned, physique.
MCTS FUNCTION MORE SIMILAR TO CARBOHYDRATES THAN FAT.
The breakdown of MCT occurs in the saliva and gastric juices. The fats are absorbed directly from the intestines into the portal vein where they are sent straight to the liver and burned as energy. MCT are often used as dietary fats and oils in ketosis diets and can be consumed on their own or used for cooking.
STUDIES SHOW THAT MCT CAN ACTUALLY STIMULATE THERMOGENESIS (FAT BURNING) AND PROVIDE A GOOD KICKSTART TO KETOSIS, A STATE WHERE THE BODY ACTUALLY BURNS FAT AS ENERGY.
Additionally, MCT and coconut oils, although higher in calories than protein and carbs (4 calories per gram), are slightly less caloric then other fatty acids. A typical gram of fat carries a caloric density of 9 calories, whereas a gram of MCT is only about 8 calories. Moreover, these fats can help keep calories in check as they aid in appetite control by stabilizing blood sugar levels and fending off cravings. Adding MCT to your diet is not only beneficial to your bulk, but they can also help in many other areas of your training. They will help increases energy levels by providing instant energy. They also increase endurance by supporting glycogen stores, helping them last longer and will also improve thyroid function.
