i am considering using this too on a bulking program , any opinions welcome? about 2 tbsp equals 90-100 cals. so an entire can contains a lot. at .60-90 US a can it is really cheap. i was considering taking some with my oamteal in the am, latenight mrp. maybe about 500 cals from it. i need to look at the sat. fat breakdown per 2tbsp serving but like my earlier post how can animal sat fat compare to plant sat fat. also the numerous mct.

institutional...all studies I have seen point to the numerous health benefits of coconut milk/oil. A lot of this relates to the high lauric acid content (~50%), something very beneficial. I believe in it enough to make it a part of my daily diet cutting or bulking.
peregrine...Coconut has mainly short/medium chain triglycerides and is shuttled through the portal vein directly to the liver to provide quick energy if my memory holds. I wouldn't compare it to animal saturated fats at all. Completely different.
I think coconut oil has some unappreciated benefits to bodybuilders. For one, there seems to be some evidence that it improves skin health and helps combat aging. It certainly doesn't negatively effect cholesterol levels and may very well reduce risk of coronary artery disease etc. The list of benefits goes on...
Due to how it is metabolised, you have to be careful about when/where to include it in your diet. My best hunch says to treat it kind of like a carbohydrate and consume it at times when you are fairly active. If I were using a lot of it bulking (which I will be), I would probably try it either pre or post workout combined with a good source of complete protein and not much else. Or maybe use it as a regular meal with protein + coconut milk + fibrous veggies/inactive carbs. I think if you combined it with a moderate or high GI carb, you would be asking for serious trouble due to competing processes. I don't know how it would react combined with other fats in the same meal. Probably depends on the type of fat/amount of fat.
sab...right on, sat fat is one of the best to fry in...very heat stable.Our kind has never been seen before.
And when the last of us are gone,
We will never be seen again.
Because there is a secret behind our creation,
And secrets like this only come around once.

quote often now for breakfast i will have:
organic coconut milk
an organic egg
some quality protein power
frozen blue berries
and some form of fibre
I got the idea from this site: articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/11/12/What-I-Eat-For-Breakfast.aspx
do you think i should not be using coconut milk in my brekkie smoothie? and go back to regular organic milk?

phuck I hate it when the phrase "good for bulking" is used. WTF do you mean by that? It has calories? What... like every food? It has a good amount of carbs/protein/fat? what... like the hundreds of other foods that do too OR could be eaten in quantities that give the same macro's?Proud Latin Rite Catholic Disciple of Jesus Christ

Me on the other hand, well when I do eventually start 'bulking' I don't think I'll have ANY problem getting enough calories, I have a huge appetite which I'd much rather use up on whole foods than oils and/or shots of coconut milk

thanks for the reply....
yeah, im still not %100 on the whole coconut milk thing. i dont really want to bulk up, as the sports i train for (basically surfing) its better being lean than big....
from the reading ive done though, the nutrients in coconut milk are supposed to be excellent....
so taking that into account, i guess im better off to going back to organic milk if im looking to stay lean?
in saying that as well, ive always been a mixed type, and my nutritionist said that full cream organic milk was fine for me to have in comparison to light or skim milk....
