I’m a week in and lost almost a stone. Started at just over 20 stone and GP had informed me that I was now over her limit to medicate. We agreed a 4 week initial plan to lose weight and get my readings down. I was recommended the 8 week BSD and after a couple of days at around 1000 cal am now 800-900 .
I’m fascinated by the roll of fats and how the misconception that low fat diets were good for us and have been trying to look into the best fats to eat. It was an easy swap to rapeseed and olive oils but I hate the coconut oils. I have now started using ghee as my fat to cook with. Ghee appears to be high in the medium chain fatty acids, MCTs. I can’t seem to find much advice or information here on this subject and the benefits of MCTs vs other fats.
Any advice would be welcomed
