Hello bros. Anyone here usein their diets? I recently saw on NP that NOW foods is selling . Although very high in saturated fats, I've read that 62% of these are MCT's, which research is showing to be a very beneficial to your health, and 50% of the MCT's are Lauric Acid, which is very good for your immune system. I guess my question is, do any of you have suggestions as how and/or when you would take this? I would assume the easiest way is in a shake. My current breakfast shake looks like this:
1 scoop whey protein
1 serving of ground oats
strawberries and/or blueberries
1 serving of 1% milk...or just use water, depends
1/2 serving 100% natural peanut butter
1/2 serving of gold flax meal
That shake is damn tasty...and I'd imagine the coconut oil would not hurt the taste at all, probably make it better. But taste is not all that important to me. I want to reap the benefits of coconut oil w/out overload on fat intake throughout the day. As you can see I already get a nice amount of EFA's in the morning shake, and I take NP's Omega caps during the day. I also have a can of which I am anxiously awaiting to use once my NP omega's are gone. I've also read that it's recommended to take 2 to 4 tablespoons throughout the day. 1 serving of NOW's is 1TBS, at 120 calories.
Maybe a couple days a week use that in my breakfast shake instead of the PB and Flax meal? Maybe 1TBS at night with my protein shake and apple? Any and ALL suggestions from you guys are welcome.
