Why MCT Oil Absolutely Rocks

Why MCT Oil Absolutely Rocks

What is MCT Oil? MCT, short for Medium Chain Triglycerides is naturally found in coconuts, dairy products like butter and goat milk. All triglycerides are categorized as either medium or long chain fats. Long chains contain 12 to 18 carbon molecules and medium-chains contain 6 to 10. Due to the shorter length, the medium chain triglycerides are absorbed in the body more readily making them a dominating force in any good diet. Also the short length means they’re rarely stored as fat and the body likes to use them immediately for energy. It is made of 4 different acids: Laucric, Caprioc, Caprylic, Capric and Acids. This clear, odorless and tasteless oil is an extraction of all natural foods which makes it an ideal supplement for those who are looking for better cognition, fat loss and curbing pesky carb cravings. One of my favorite kitchen items, coconut oil, is rich in MCT oil (about 66% of the coconut oil makeup) and has tremendous side benefits such as: improving blood cholesterol, protecting enamel on your teeth and even protecting your skin of sun damage. How is it different from other fats? If you haven’t hopped on the Keto-wagon then you may not know all of the unique benefits MCT oil has to offer. MCT oil is not a keto-thing or a paleo-thing, it’s just plain good. If you have read our Ebook “Balance Stress” you know that, by including lots of good fats in your diet, your body regulates a lot of the common carb cravings, afternoon snooze-fests and insulin related issues of today’s modern health concerns. 1. Good fats like...
It’s my fault 

It’s my fault 

For coaches and fitness guru’s Our solutions to our own problems start with us. Your problems are a result of your own decisions. My problems are a result of mine. In 2006 I decided to lose weight but I had no idea where it would take me. Not only have I realized how fun a healthier lifestyle would be, but how much power I could have on other peoples lives. That power only became a reality when I realized that I lost my way only as a result of my own decisions- no one else’s. The universe didn’t hand me anything that didn’t have optionality. I was either too ignorant or blind to see the long term consequences of my decisions. But the transformation began only when I completely understood and accepted my own ignorance. Like a wanderer admitting I was lost, I began acquiring more new information than ever. Then I became a coach. Coaching lends it’s own unique problems, much different then being an athlete. An athlete’s job is to attempt to adhere to protocol and execute the plan. Some athletes are extremely motivated and others are flat out lazy. I was a blend of both. I genuinely wanted to play professional baseball one day and that drive helped me overcome my natural laziness to become a moderately hard to hard worker. As a coach you don’t have a luxury of a plan. In fact, the more you learn about wonderful wisdom of human biology, the more you realize you don’t know. And people want hard answers. Most people aren’t raised with biology books. They are brought up in...

You can be a part of something big! As you all know, I really love real food. And I love those who support the farmers and artisans who grow and make the food my family eats. But I never realized just how much my ability to choose what I eat was under attack or threatened. Not many people do understand exactly how the food system works. We just go about our day as if food appears on a conveyor belt and sent off to market where we pick it up and take it home. But it doesn’t work that way and the system is far from automatic. As a matter of fact, if you haven’t seen the documentary Farmageddon, you probably should today. You will be shocked to find that food regulation has become a down right dirty business and that affects YOU the consumer greatly. Even if you are simply happy with your current selection you may be surprised to know that the FDA doesn’t necessarily believe that you have the RIGHT to choose where you get your food regardless of it’s nutrition value. That’s right. The FDA has made official statements that says you do not have an inherent right to choose where you get your food. A few years back, the FDA said in response to a lawsuit by the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, • “There is no absolute right to consume or feed children any particular food.” [p. 25] • “There is no ‘deeply rooted’ historical tradition of unfettered access to foods of all kinds.” [p. 26] Not long after, a judge in Wisconsin went even...
Our Trip to Sweetwater Organic Farm

Our Trip to Sweetwater Organic Farm

Sweetwater Organic Farm, Tampa, FL One of the biggest problems we face today isn’t sugar, fats, starchy snacks or fast food. No, my friend…those are by-products of a much larger subservient problem which needs to end and end now before it manifests into something even worse. The fact that we have, over the course of a few decades, voluntarily surrendered access, knowledge and, in some cases, legal rights to the best food on earth is at the grux of many of our health and environmental problems. You don’t have to be an ecologist to know that the further you are removed from something, in this case the ecological process of growing food, the less you can understand it and therefor render yourself incapable of recognizing a good situation from a bad much less have any kind of valuable input to solve a problem like the one we have today. This is food we’re talking about – when you eat it, it becomes you. There is nothing more valuable in our lives than food and right now we have supermarkets piling in 40,000+ new packaged food options per year, restaraunts on every corner, soda machines in every school. Fewer people have visited a farm much less know how to grow a plant or even cook for that matter. You may think you’re saving money and time by opting for convenience. In reality, you are rendering yourself helpless and lending control of your health to a food system that making us unhealthy, unhappy and more reliant on factors far out of our personal control. You and I both deserve it and there is...
