MCT Oil + Fasting

After posting that lovely bottle of “brain fuel” on my instagram story I got so many questions wondering wtf it was, and because my fingers hurt too much to type it out on my phone to each individual I thought – oh shit I have a blog now why not actually use it!

So you know I gotta say it. In no way, shape or form am I a nutritionist (I took a degree in enterprise systems for god’s sake) and everything I’m sharing is because I have personally tried it and actually saw/felt results, this doesn’t mean it will work for everyone. Just throwing that out there because I’m pretty sure I have to or I could get sued.

Why I Use It

Since I switched over to a higher fat/lower carb lifestyle I’ve found it a tad difficult to get my recommended daily dose of healthy fats, I can only eat so much avocado. I came across MCT oil from a few of my favourite MD’s – Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Will Cole and Dr. Jason Fung.

Another reason for the purchase was that I found myself constantly thinking about my next meal, what was it going to be, when, WHERE, etc. (I think we’ve all been there) Don’t get me wrong, your girl has a big appetite ask anyone. But it started to become straight up annoying, it was almost controlling my entire day. NOT COOL.

After trying basically everything under the sun to fix my obsessive behaviour I started doing Intermittent Fasting (IF) combined with a high fat and lower carb diet. Basically, I don’t eat for about 16 hours (yes that sounds insane but 8-10 of them are while I’m sound asleep) and the rest of it gives your body time to work on itself instead of constantly breaking down food. When I do break my fast (get it, breakfast?) on a good day it’s with lots of leafy greens, healthy fats like avocados/nuts, and protein from fish or eggs. (Still not on the meat train but I will get there eventually)

An easy way I like to think about intermittent fasting: say you scrape your knee, once you go to bed, you wake up and your knee has sort of magically repaired itself through time. This is basically whats going on with your insides. Your body starts repairing things you probably never even knew needed fixing for example memory/brain function, cellular repair, increases in energy and lowering shitty cholesterol. Think about our ancestors, they weren’t constantly snacking on packaged food, waiting for their 5th meal of the day, they hardly even knew when their 2nd meal was going to be. Hence the no need for 6 small meals a day which has been engrained into our minds.

MCT oil is just another form of healthy fat I can easily incorporate into my diet. IF + lots of fat have finally put me in a happy place with my body and most importantly my mind. Because of everyone’s fat phobia I would have never thought that I would be saying this but fat does not make you fat people! The mental clarity has been amazing and for anyone who has been struggling with finding a balance that works well for them, I highly suggest looking into it. I also never liked eating first thing in the morning either so this worked great with my schedule.

WTF Is It

“MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides . They are a type of fatty acid that is derived from coconut oil.  Consider MCT oil as a super fuel for your cells, because it boosts fat burning and increases mental clarity. ” – (https://drhyman.com/blog/2016/02/04/the-secret-fat-that-makes-you-thin/)

How I Use It

I actually sort of cheat too ngl. Typically you’re supposed to drink water and tea/coffee without any additives like milk, cream, etc. But I actually put a couple pumps of this MCT oil in my coffee during my fast. It’s liquid ok. So say what you want, but this is what works great for me. This is just a great way for my body to stay satiated. I am not starving myself. This is NOT what intermittent fasting is all about, it’s about eating when you’re actually hungry and eating nutrient dense food to fuel it. It also comes in powder form, which I sort of hate. I prefer the oil over the powder because I like using mine in a salad dressing or a marinade.

With anything you’re about to randomly start putting into your body, I highly suggest doing your research on it. I’ve listed some great reads in my WTF do I eat post so go check that out if you want any suggestions.

Also, if you’re lazy and don’t feel like doing a ton of your own research, here’s a great guide to choosing the best keto supplement for YOU. You hear me say it enough but as you know we are all so different, what works for me may not work for you and vice versa, so here’s a little guide from my friends over at HVMN chatting all about picking the best Keto supplement for you, and for all of you people who just NEED to have everything backed up by science, I didn’t forget about you. It has lot’s of science-y facts for you (which I’m sure you’ll pick apart) so fill your boots people!

  1. I simply needed to say thanks once again. I’m not certain the things I would have handled in the absence of the tactics revealed by you concerning that situation. Previously it was a troublesome scenario in my view, nevertheless coming across your specialized technique you processed the issue took me to leap over contentment. I am happier for your assistance and in addition hope that you realize what a powerful job that you’re providing training some other people through the use of your webblog. I’m certain you’ve never got to know all of us.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
