I know everyone is against fat intake directly post-workout, but wouldn't taking in MCT's ensure that the carbs/protein be used for glycogen and protein synthesis. I'm sure these are energy-costly events, so intaking MCT's would keep the body from using some of the protein/carbs as fuel.

First, I think it is great that you are thinking critcally. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
Some problems would be that:
1. It would slow digestion
2. You don't need fat post workout
3. You should never combine high fat meals and spike insulin. Insulin blunts fat oxidation; thus, you increase the chance of storing that fat--even though it is MCT oil--as adipose tissue.
