MCT alone can be transiently helpful when working to extend your fast but you seem to be doing well without it, having worked up to a 15 hour fast. Congrats!

It is technically not fasting since there are calories, but it is pure fat, so only the ketone pathway should be started. I wait until 10 am to begin eating.
Hi bosco,bosco wrote:MCT oils have calories also. Seems to me that taking mct oils would be breaking the fast and defeating the purpose. Love to hear what anyone has to say about this. I've just started extending my 12 hour nighttime fast to a longer period. Thanks

What works for one person does not work for another. This wiki article on the subject may be of interest to you to look at pros and cons.
