Rodents fed a calcium deficient diet had greater visceral fat mass than those who were fed higher levels of calcium. I don't think that calcium supplementation would help with weight loss, but I think the point is that if your calcium deficient, it could be hard to shift that flab.
Triglyceride with medium-chain fatty acids increases the activity and expression of hormone-sensitive lipase in white adipose tissue of C57BL/6J mice.
Medium chain fats are directly transported to the liver via the hepatic portal circulation and turned into ketones, diet-induced thermogenesis is accelerated as a result.
Medium chain fats increase Hormone sensitive lipase in fat mass,
Rodents fed the MCT diet had a higher number of fat cells than rodents fed the long chain fatty acid diet. Now that is weird. rodents fed the LCFA diet had a small amount of very large fat cells, while mice fed the control diet had a very large number of tiny fat cells.
Rodents fed the MCT diet had the lowest fat mass out of all the groups.
