I began using MCT oil in conjunction with the hCG protocol at the recommendation of my naturopath. Prior to beginning my weight loss journey with hCG, I’d become educated in the major benefits of coconut oil (of which MCT oil is derived) and because of this I was confident that it would be an effective and healthy addition to my protocol lifestyle. This proved to be true. I averaged a steady 5 pound a week loss the entire time I was dieting using 1 to 2 tablespoons a day. I used it to sauté (on low temperatures), for marinades and salad dressings. I have nothing but good to say about it. Its neutral flavor is a wonderful compliment to Grandma Edna’s Seasonings™ . Most information I have come across suggests using 1 tablespoon per day while on the protocol.
My research on the subject and what I have learned from my doctor’s is that MCT Oil is a beneficial medium chain fat and thus metabolizes differently from other fats. It is easily digested and does so more rapidly. Because it metabolizes so quickly in the liver, it provides energy. When eating a meal prepared with the oil, I’ve read that a thermogenic effect takes place, which increases the number of calories burned, resulting in fewer calories being stored. I, personally, have no doubt and believe this wonderful product to actually support weight loss and body composition. Another unexpected, but welcome benefit is that it helps to ease constipation, which some hCG dieters’ have trouble with. I love this product!
When I have reached my healthy weight I plan to continue using pure coconut oil for cooking and MCT Oil for making marinades and salad dressings. This will help me to maintain my weight for life. For your convenience, I have provided links to some websites where you can purchase MCT Oil. I encourage you to read about its benefits (and that of coconut oil) for yourself because they are too many to list here and go beyond that of just weight loss benefits. Look for this product in your local health food store or nutrition center. Beware of some of the “flavored” MCT oils…they are not suitable for Dr. Simeon’s hCG Protocol.
The best price I have found online so far has been at www.amazon.com
Store your MCT Oil in a cool and dark environment. After opening it can be refrigerated or stored at cool room temperature. I keep mine in a dark cool cupboard.
