Wow I am really learning a lot through this thread. Thanks for always responding so promptly.

Well in terms of there being products that consist of MCTs mostly in the c6 - c10 range, it seems that that is exactly how most of the products are formulated.

For example: the SciFit MCT oil has the following properties... Ingredient Details:
*MCT Oil: 27g (medium chain triglycerides) Approx. Carbon Chain Distribution- C6: 3% max, C8: 65-85%, C10: 23-33%, C12: 3% max

source: http://eworldsupplements.com/products.php?p=104047

Another MCT Oil product (found here: http://www.iherb.com/mctoil.html) states that it is "is concentrated in 8-carbon length caprylic acid and 10-carbon length capric acid in a blended ratio of approximately 2 to 1" which means it is pretty similar to the Sci-Fit product.

Universal Nutrition also makes a pure MCT oil product which has pretty much the exact same ratio.

So it seems like it would be much more optimal to supplement with MCTs using an MCT oil product rather than coconut oil, which is much less concentrated in the type that are of the most benifit.

Well I really am looking forward to your investigation on this topic and what conclusions you come to. I find this subject quite fascinating and thanks for helping me, and others here at the forum, build on our knowledge.

FANTASTIC research, Grimm. I am very impressed. Thanks a lot for sharing that information. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

So are you going to start using one of those oils? If so, share your results!

Hey, bro

No, I am not doing anything like atkins. I always have my post workout shake, which contains lots of carbs, and I also have carbs for breakfast; however, I have lowered my dosages in those meals. The rest of the day, I have primarily been having leafy greens. The biggest difference is that I have upped my fats, but I am not stuffing myself at all. A typical meal may consist of 1 spoon full of flax, some eggs, and whey protein.

Also, I am carb cycling. I have a high carb day every 2-3 days. That includes tomorrow! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Would you still include starchy carbs in PWO meal to regulate insulin?

I was for most of my cut, but the last several weeks I have been going very low carb for a shock, since I am almost done with this cut. I have just been having a lot of cabbage, instead. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Great thread!

I have an observation that may be of interest. My son and I were in Italy last summer. It was very easy to pick out Americans from Italians. It wasn't the clothing or the language. The only overweight and often obese people were Americans. They stood out as sore thumbs! Even very old people looked very healthy, except for their cigarettes!

There are next to no fast food joints in Italy, and rarely a McDonalds. In fact, the only way McDonalds was allowed to open in Italy was if they offered good foods on their menu.

Italians typically eat what is called the Mediterranean diet: 40% of calories come from olive oil [mono-unsaturated] and they eat smaller portions of red meat than Americans, plus more seafood.

At e-diets, they are touting the Mediterranean diet:

Our Mediterranean plan will help you follow a diet similar to that traditionally found in the countries around the Mediterranean. This plan is rich in healthy fats from fish, olive oil, nuts and seeds, and you'll find plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables here, too. This diet is a rich source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, a combination which can help improve cholesterol levels and protect heart health.

Anecdotal evidence can often give great clues as to where to begin doing research. Perhaps a modified Mediterranean diet with bodybuilding in mind could be a start for a research study.

A great point.

INteresting insight into the meditteranaen diet. I visited Italy this summer too and I was also struck by the lack of fast food joints, a very refreshing change. They have an insane amount of icecream joints though!!
