Juliegee wrote:George, can you give us more information? Dr. Gundry has probably collected the most evidence on this of anyone in the world given his recommendations and subsequent data collections. Previously, he had recommended capryllic acid, the C8 version of MCT for E4s. Is he backing off of that as well?

Last week he didn't mention anything to us about not using MCT oil. Previously he said it was neutral. I don't think that it means you can't have coconut products, but it wouldn't hurt to send an email for clarification. Now my curiosity is peaked! We haven't shown elevated levels so maybe that is the difference and we use MCT daily."

I also eat a plain full fat yogurt nearly daily and use butter. I am apoe 3/4 with type A pattern and my HDL rose a bit but that's it. I was expecting to have to cut out the MCT oil so I'm happy I can keep it. I too lost too much weight on a fairly low carb but not Keto diet so the MCT is helpful along with extra nuts.
