Re: Research Question of the Week: How to Optimize Fat Efficiency in the Diet
hi, I have a couple of questions:
1. How much saturated fat should one aim to consume on a daily basis (what % of their total fat calories should come from fat intake)? Is it ok to have foods like heavy cream replace flax oil once in a while because of the benifits offered (increase in anabolic hormones) by saturated fats? and by once in a while i mean: for one protein/fat meal once a week or so. what would be good sources of saturated fat? whole cheese and other dairy products? or meat?
2. Is fresh coconut flesh a good source of MCTs? Are MCTs good to consume while bulking also? should I consume them from food sources or get a supplement that has pure MCT?
Thanks so much for your help and sharing your knowledge.
