Back home - lots of stuff - MCT oil

| No Comments

Had the meeting - getting bids on the new shop building. The surveyor should be out there sometime this week or next so finalizing the layout of the site for building.

The farmer's market was a lot of fun - met some new people and had a wonderful conversation with a couple people I already know.

Had a quick dinner (burrito) and then spent two hours at the National Night Out. This is an annual event sponsored by police, fire, and rescue agencies and is their vehicle for gaining public awareness of what they do. Big event with a couple thousand people attending. I am involved with CERT as well as the amateur radio emergency communications so was busy meeting with people. Great weather and good music so it was a lot of fun.

MCT Oil? This is oil (from coconuts) that is very rich in medium-chain triglycerides. Supposed to be great for people looking to lose some weight (as I am) and helpful for muscle recovery after working out (which I do 2-3 times/week). I saw it for sale at Costco and picked up a bottle. Been doing a glug over my morning oatmeal or cereal or using it for my salad dressing with some lemon juice or mustard and white balsamic. Good stuff. Didn't feel like having any breakfast this morning so figured, what the hell, I chugged about an ounce of it. Not that much really.

I was fine for the first hour but then it hit. To say that it loosened my guts would be an understatement. I could have swallowed a dime and it would have popped out between my butt-cheeks fifteen minutes later. Needless to say, my afternoon was punctuated with a couple of emergency pit stops... Been using it for about three weeks and this is the first sign of any problems like this so will try a small amount tomorrow and see what happens.

Things have settled down for now but still...
