Yes, Now MCT is fine, but don't expect some turbo charged effect or anything, it's not that much more energetic or ergogenic than coconut oil. There's no "wow I'm really awake" factor like there is with coffee, despite Dave Asprey singing its... (more)

Maybe you think you are eating 2000 calories when in fact you are doing more. I found that Intermittent fasting is more successful for me than Keto. I eat a few sweet potatoes during a week but otherwise no starches or grains.
