Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are a particular type of healthy fat. Unlike standard long-chain triglycerides, more commonly found in the diet, MCTs convert directly into ketone energy rather than being stored as fat. Melrose have developed 3 variants of MCT Oil, each with differing chain lengths to specifically target your health goals.
Containing medium length C8 and C10 carbon chains, Melrose Kick Start MCT Oil supports weight loss and is the perfect complement to your lower carbohydrate diet. It provides natural energy while promoting a fat burning environment to assist your body composition goals. Do you have a slow metabolism or low energy? Do you constantly snack and struggle getting into and staying in ketosis? This is the MCT oil for you.
Here are our top four tips to combine with your Melrose Kick Start MCT Oil for best results:
- Break your overnight fast with our Antioxidant Smoothie Bowl and tackle your busy day with ease. It’s the perfect combination of greens, quality protein and healthy fats, with a vitamin C boost from berries.
- Aim for 4-5 hours of satiety between meals, for both digestive ease, and a fat-burning opportunity meal-to-meal. If your meals don’t provide 4 or more hours of satiety, please add an additional ½-1 serve of good fats such as 1 tablespoon of MCT oil and/or 1 tablespoon of nut butter.
- Decrease your meal frequency. When you achieve 4-5 hours between meals, you will notice that it is much less likely that you will need to snack. Example meal times could be 9am, 2pm and 7pm, meaning it is possible to achieve three meals per day with great blood sugar control, while increasing your fat burning potential and supporting your metabolic goals.
- Shorten your eating window, by having a later breakfast, earlier dinner or a combination of the two. The gap between your last meal and breakfast the next day is your fasting window, to continue to create digestive ease and optimize your metabolism. Your minimum fasting window should be 12:12 e.g. a 12 hour fast with a 12 hour eating window, such as fasting from 8:00pm to 8:00am and finishing your last meal by 8:00pm that day.
