If you're looking to lose weight and improve your body composition, you may have heard that incorporating Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) into your diet can help. But what are MCTs, and how do they differ from the more commonly consumed Long-Chain Triglycerides (LCTs)?
An interesting scientific study(1) aimed to find out by comparing the effects of diets rich in MCTs or LCTs on body composition, energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and more. The study was conducted on 24 healthy, overweight men and lasted for 28 days for each dietary intervention.
The results showed that the upper body adipose tissue (AT) decreased significantly more with the MCT diet compared to the LCT diet. In addition, the average energy expenditure was slightly higher on the MCT diet, and the average fat oxidation was also greater on the MCT diet, although not significantly so.
This study suggests that incorporating MCTs into your diet can lead to greater loss of body fat compared to LCTs, potentially due to increased energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
