Saw these at @homegoods the other day and had a little bit of a chuckle. #mctoil is marketed as a magical #weightloss solution - add some to your daily routine and watch the pounds melt away! A quick google search leads you to several pseudoscience “health” websites hawking MCT oil as a metabolism booster and fat melter. The funny thing is that we literally add MCT oil to the diets of kids who are not gaining enough weight for whatever reason. Whether they are g-tube fed and need more calories without adding a lot of volume or tiny kids who are picky eaters and falling off the growth curve, we often add MCT oil to their feeds or sneak it into their food to promote weight gain.
Weight change is determined by the difference between calories in and calories out. There certainly are healthier ways to lose weight than others - sure, you could eat McDonald’s every day and still lose weight as long as you remain in a calorie deficit, but that doesn’t mean you have a healthy diet. But there is no magic cure-all oil or pill that will melt fat and turn it into muscle. Eat more vegetables. Move a little more. Be patient. Be kind to yourself. And be wary of anyone trying to sell you snake oil.
