T Nation

Medium Chain Triglycerides

A clerk at the local supplement shop recommended this product as part of a serious cutting program. Aside from the non-carb energy source he claimed it was the ultimate appetite suppressant.

He’s right about the appetite suppression. It truly does do that.

Anyone know more about this stuff, it’s very cheap and effectively suppresses my appetite? There is very little written about it.

The product seems to fit well with CT’s Mutation I diet, which limits carbs to the post workout drink and some greens in the second post workout feeding.

I’ve tried it, and I liked it. I didnt feel “down” or “flat” at all during my workouts

Well, from what I’ve read recently, MCTs are not all that. However, you can always incorporate them into your diet as healthy fats. As for appetite supression, fats do keep you full for a longer period of time compared to proteins and carbs.
