How much coconut milk would you recommend? What is a good protein powder?
I usually have about half a cup a day. Main thing is to calculate what other fats you are getting and making sure that there is a balance of saturated fat (coconut fat is pretty much all saturated fat) to monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Use FitDay or MyPlate or something like that to calculate calories/fats etc.
There are some on here that are very opposed to saturated fat. I am not one of them but I do recommend that you do some research and make up your own mind on the issue
Don't buy protein powder from stores. Buy online and buy in bulk.
If you are in UK buy from either bulkpowders or myprotein
If the USA then buy from truenutrition.
Pea, Hemp (expensive), Brown Rice and Soy are all good protein powders though pea tastes pretty awful to most people (just flavour it with something).
I don't know who to buy from for elsewhere.
We need a sticky for bulking info like this I think. I shall look into it.
JS - They think it will open the door to folk like LordMuppet campaigning for a threeway?
