Don't forget your MCTs

MCTs I can get behind! Bouns points for anyone who makes me some.
We're doing a little experiment to see if eating MCTs while doing AGT work will make you awesome (well, more awesome than you already are).

Remember to bring your MCT source to the gym and have some while you're warming up. They'll be all digested and ready to be burned by the time you're ready to start. The theory goes that MCTs will help you create more mitochondria which will allow you to produce more energy with less effort. That's perfect for the 5:00 snatch test.

It's also perfect for your daily life. Most disease can be traced to mitochondria dysfunction - that is not being able to make energy in your cells properly. I just read something that complications from Lyme's disease aren't from the infection itself, but from the antibiotic cocktail you need to take. Those antibiotics seem to mess with your mitochondria too.

There's a great correlation between having lots of good functioning mitochondria and being healthy. So don't think you're just doing this for the TSC, you're doing this for your health.

And coconut butter is tasty too, so it's a good excuse to have some.
