A keto diet trains the body to switch from its preferred fuel source of carbohydrates to burning fat instead. This is called ketosis, hence the name ‘keto’. To reach and stay in ketosis, getting the right balance of fats, proteins and carbohydrates is crucial and it’s generally accepted that you need around 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbohydrates. That’s easier said than done. Busy lifestyles and irregular eating habits can make the whole process difficult to achieve and maintain. What can help is the consumption of a type of fat called a medium-chain triglyceride, or MCT. Usually derived from coconut oil, MCTs are smaller fats than those found in long-chain triglycerides making them easier to digest and absorb. This means your body gets access to energy faster, helping you reach and stay in ketosis.
