MCTs cannot make you fat!
Because they have fewer carbon atoms, MCTs have a number of advantages over LCTs. Although MCTs are fat, and feel like fat in your mouth, they cannot make you fat. They resemble carbohydrates more than fat, are easy to digest, and are burned as energy—so there is no where for them to go, and no place for you body to store them.

Is this correct as most will say, over consumption of calories do make you fat?

The first time i tried VLC but not counting calories i didn't lose weight, 2nd time on VLC i didn't eat enough calories, just wondering others thoughts on MCTs vs saturated fats?
