    Heavy cream, should I use it to get enough calories?


    I am having a hard time getting enough calories, I simply do not have the appetite and I have to force the last 700+ calories down. I know some of the old pro body-builders used heavy cream to help them reach their calories.

    I am wondering if I should try that too, or do you guys have a really good reason for why I shouldn't?

    Thanks

    When you say healthier, do you say that because there are saturated fats in heavy cream or what is the reason?

    i personally like to use more of the Essential fats then the saturated fats,

    with the exception of coconutoil.

    nothing wrong with saturated fats per as all fats can raise HDL to certain extent, its the presence of carbs that cause the problem.

    I just feel i get leaner when using the better fats, like my body will store those and release the garbage. whether it happens that way or not is a different story. But healthy fats tend to help with certain gene expression (PPAR's) to accelerate fat loss.
