Let’s face it, losing weight and keeping the weight off is difficult, as is looking after our health and well-being in general. Many of us struggle to find a diet plan or a way of eating healthily and actually sticking to it. What doesn’t help, is the fact that there are so many faddy diets and gimmicky diets out there that can confuse people and leave them feeling overwhelmed. For this reason, people simply do not know what they should and should not be eating in order to manage their weight and maintain their health. One product however, that has been getting a huge amount of attention lately, for all of the right reasons, is a product known as SKINNYfat, and it’s this product that we’ll be looking at right now.
What exactly is SKINNYfat?
SKINNYfat, and SKINNY fat Olive is an oil made up from MCT’s (Medium Chain Triglycerides), and other healthy oils, that has been scientifically proven to help with brain function, fat-burning, and energy production within the human body. It’s ideal for people looking to lose weight and improve their overall health and fitness, without the need for relying on stimulant ridden fat burners, and faddy diets consisting of bland or disgusting foods.
What’s it actually made from, and what are the benefits?
The product is derived from a combination of organic virgin coconut oil, MCT’s, and organic extra virgin olive oil, making it one of the healthiest oils on the planet. The reason for this is that all of the ingredients are proven to be unbelievably healthy for the human body. The coconut oil for instance, helps boost the immune system, it helps improve the thyroid gland function, and it’s great for the heart as well. MCT’s cannot be stored as fat within the body, and they’ve been proven to help with insulin sensitivity and to help boost and increase the metabolism, thus aiding in weight loss and weight management. Finally, the extra virgin olive oil is well known for being an extremely healthy source of fat, due to the fact that it possesses a number of beneficial health properties. Combine all three of these oils together in SKINNYfat, and you’re left with one of the healthiest products on the entire market today. The coconut oil, the olive oil, and the MCT’s all have their benefits, but individually, they all have their negative aspects as well. SKINNYfat is a product with all of the benefits, and none of the drawbacks.
So how does SKINNYfat work?
The great thing about this product is that it is quickly absorbed, digested, and converted into energy for the body, rather than being stored as body fat. The ingredients contained within SKINNYfat are quickly metabolised by the liver, which then leads to the production of ketones. Ketones are another form of energy for the body, which does not cause an increase in blood sugar levels or an insulin spike. They speed up the metabolism which leads to an increase in energy levels, all the while keeping you feeling full for longer. On top of that, they’re also great for brain function, helping with mental focus and clarity.
How is it used?
Basically, you use this product in exactly the same way as you use other oils in your kitchen. You can use it for shallow frying, for frying, as a marinade, or even as a salad dressing drizzled over your favourite salad.
Q Hi Sadie, what is MCT stands for? and how often during the day I can drink the coffee with the brain octane oil?
A. It stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. It depends on how your body responds to fat. To start with you would try 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon. If that is ok then you can build it up during the day. You can get a an upset tummy if you take too much because its fat hence why you start off with small amounts. I take 2 tablespoons in the morning and if I need an extra energy boost in the afternoon I sometimes take it as well http://www.enhancednation.com/blog/upgraded-brain-octane-vs-upgraded-mct-oil/
Q. Is Brain octane oil can help loosing some body fat or not at all? and is the coffee as I take it with the brain octane would be healthy for people with cancer?
A. Yes most definitely. The MCT oil doesn’t get stored as fat in your body at all. Its turned into Ketones straight away and you body uses it as fuel. It also passes the blood brain barrier which also fuels your brain. By raising the good fat ratio in your body this helps you get into ketosis quicker (fat burning mode). If you practice intermittent fasting then you can have a bulletproof coffee (with the oil and butter) in the mornings. This helps take away any hunger as you get an energy boost from the good fats but doesn’t bring you out of the fast at all. Re cancer – I can’t say as I’m not a medical professional, however as it has reduced toxins I would say if I had a choice of which coffee to drink then this would be my one to choose. I have read a lot on cancer and nutrition and a lot of the info focuses on reducing the toxins coming into the body as a person’s immune system can be really compromised. I’ve also read that ketosis is excellent for cancer patients as cancer cells use glucose for energy but not fat. So if glucose is reduced and fat increased this helps greatly. Another product you should consider is Glutathione. All studies have shown that people with serious illnesses such as cancer have really low glutathione levels in their systems. Not sure if you have read up on glutathione if not deff google it. Dave’s glutathione has been designed to help with absorption (as glutathione is tricky to get into the system)
Q. is brain Octain oil is same as what you are talking about MCT? Is it the same oil used? Or I need to buy MCT oil to use with the coffee to be able to lose some weight? Also, if that is the case then can I use the brain Octain and also the MCT as I understand one is for brain focus and the other one (MCT?) for losing weight? Wouldn’t this be too much in one day?
A. You can use either the MCT oil or Brain Octane oil, both are good for weight loss. MCT is a combination of Caprylic acid (C8 & C10) where as Brain Octane oil is only C8
‘Both C8 and C10 get broken down into the same molecule, Acetyl-CoA, which is then converted into ketones. It’s these ketones that have been shown to help with weight loss by stimulating the metabolism and by suppressing appetite.’
One of the biggest lessons I have learnt since starting on my own Bio hacking journey is that we all are slightly different and what can work for one person does not always work for the next person, this is because we have different levels of nutrients – some of us are deficient in ones that other may not be, hormonally we are all also different. However we are all fundamentally the same so with a few tweaks here and there similar solutions can work for us all.
Personally I tried MCT oil initially and then changed to Brain Octane oil as I felt I got a better response. My advice would be to stick with the Brain octane oil see how you feel on it and then next time buy MCT oil and see how you respond to that. You’ll soon decide which one works best for you. We’ve got the half bottles of both for sale on the site.
