I only use it when I need more ketones in my system than my body can make or is currently making. For example, when I work out. A lot of people do BPC in the morning since that’s when ketones tend to be lowest or they use it to extend their fasting period for the purpose of keeping insulin down but still putting something in your stomach.
Keto is a high fat diet. MCT oil is just a type of fat. How much fat you’ll consume will depend on a few different factors. Here is something one of the admins wrote about “plate fat” a while back
“here’s the low-down on “plate fat” (what you eat) versus body fat (what you are trying to lose)
“Plate Fat” keeps your insulin response low and your hunger satisfied.
– When your insulin is high, it is forcing excess glucose into your cells to be stored as fat.
– Conversely when your insulin is low, your body is signaled to release fat from your cells.
– Your insulin remains low when you either 1) don’t eat or 2) eat foods that provoke minimal to no insulin response.
– What’s the macro that provokes the absolute least insulin response? FAT. So, if you EAT enough fat to keep yourself satisfied, you won’t have the need to eat as often, or to snack.
– By not eating as often and not snacking, you are keeping your insulin levels low for a longer period of time.
– This, in turn, allows the release of fat from your cells for a greater time period – aka keeps you in “fat burning mode.”
– Therefore eating dietary fat plays an important role in the Ketogenic model, for weight loss especially.”
