In addition, when you mix dark chocolate with MCT oil, it only increases the fat burning mode in your body…

-Coconut oil is 55% MCTs, while MCT oil is made 100% of MCTs. Furthermore, coconut oil contains all 4 medium-chain fatty acids, including large quantities of lauric acid, the least efficient MCT. MCT oil only uses the two most efficient MCTs for energy: caprylic and capric acid. (perfectketo.com)

-Many ketogenic diet and MCT oil spokespeople say that MCT’s energy sustaining powers can be explained as follows: when MCT oil is metabolized in the body, it behaves more like a carbohydrate than a fat. Remember that the fuel of preference for the body is carbohydrate. Unlike other fats, MCT oil does not go through the lymphatic system. Instead, it is transported directly to the liver where it is metabolized so it releases energy like a carbohydrate and creates lots of ketones (which
an be used for fuel) in the process. (bodybuilding.com)

These little chocolates are sure to impress! Satisfy those sweet and salty cravings with no guilt!

Prepare

I don’t know about you, but when I am busy (which is all the time), it is often hard for me to resist little snacks or treats when I am out and about. I have found that it is easy to just throw some treats together like once a week, and then have them readily available to just put in a little Tupperware or baggie, making it easy to take them on the go.

Cookies, bars, candies and muffins are easy to transport, thus making it easy to have grab and go treats! It also makes it so much easier to resist the yucky stuff and stay “on plan”.
