  • I don’t know where to post this question, so I thought I’ll post here. Mods – Please feel free to move it where its appropriate.

    I’ve read that alcohol (not sugary mixed drinks or beer) processed by the liver turns mostly to tri-glycerides in your blood stream.
    Now I have been told Medium chain tri-glycerides are helping the liver burn more fat etc etc.

    Would alcohol not work the same way (mostly).

    Thanks.

    Srinath – there’s a great video on Youtube – “Sugar the bitter truth” by Robert Lustig. In it he talks about how sugar affects the liver. In it he also talks about how alcohol affects it – they are very similar. You may find what you’re looking for there.

    I believe I’ve got some more info on it.
    MCT oil is typically C8 and C10. Very effective for thermiogenesis. 33% or so of coconut oil is these 2.
    C6 is even better, but bitter, and 1% of coconut oil is C6.
    C12 comprises of the 66% or so of coconut oil. All in all add up to good fat.
    By comparison Olive oil is heavy in the C16-18 chains.

    Human cholesterol is C27. Its like comparing a squirrel to an elephant.
    Even pig lard is C18 and C20. Far better.

    Thanks.
    Srinath.
