Will MCT Oil break my fast?

For some people, any calorie intake (from carbohydrates, protein, or fats like MCT) constitutes "breaking" the fast.
For other people, fat intake during a fast is allowed since the body burns fat (body fat) during a fast and fat intake does not spike insulin levels or blood sugar the way carbs or even protein would.
A small amount of healthy fats, like our MCT Oil, can be helpful during a fast for the above reasons (does not spike insulin or blood sugar) while providing a degree of satiety (reduces hunger) that can allow you to continue a fast that you would otherwise struggle with.
