Mct Vs Coconut Oil/averse Reactions To Co
Hey Dave et all,
Question regarding MCT oil vs Coconut oil. I have doing a paleo/bulletproof diet for about 3-4 months now. I have lost about 50 pounds, greatly improved my athletic ability with minimal exercise, and just feel much better overall.
I have been hacking my coffee - getting BPC beans and kerrygold butter - but I can't seem to settle on a coconut oil. I have tried about 5 different brands and all seem to give me headaches or GI distress. The latest batch was a higher quality one per your recommendations in the grocery guide - expeller pressed, centrifuge, etc - but it seems to give me stomachaches and "looseness", ahem, yeah. Not finished testing yet, but it seems to be more of the same.
I'm wondering if I should try MCT oil instead. One of the big reasons I started hacking my coffee is because I suspect I am sensitive to mold as you are (Certain houses just nail me, sometimes coffee helps/hinders, etc).
Are there benefits of MCT oil over coconut? In addition, 1) are there any reasons I may be having adverse reactions to CO and 2) are there reasons I may have less averse reactions in response to MCT (less chance of mycotoxins, etc)
Thanks for the blog and podcast. Excited to read the baby book before my wife and I get pregnant again.
