a good protein powder with high calorie count?
« on: January 14, 2012, 10:01:05 AM »
I got AMP protein powder at GNC cause they recommended it, but I'm not sure this is going to be enough. Now I haven't started P90x yet and I've got my fat secret app on my iPhone so I plan on entering everything that I eat and drink. According to that app, it say's I need 3300 calories a day. AMP calorie (3 scoops) would give 280 (60g protein) so if I took a shake in the morning before work and then one after workout that's going to give me 560. I could add milk to that for a little higher plus eating 5 times with protein bars for snacks at work. But I'm thinking I'll need a higher calorie intake powder.  I was looking at true mass or serious mass which is like 1200 something calories (crazy).  Lloyd, I know you have tried serious mass cause it was in one of your youtube videos I watched. How's the taste of it. I would blend it up with fruit or something with some ice. This AMP say's it's good for strength, recovery, and stamina.

I plan on starting P90x on Janurary 23. I'd start this coming Monday but am going to be out of town seeing my mom since she just got out of surgery, so the 23 is my set date to begin.

A good way to boost your calorie intake is to mix your protein powder with coconut milk. Coconut is one of the most calorie dense foods and it is very good for you. You should focus on the quality of the calories, you will not build muscle on 3000 calories of sugar!

But you wont build muscle on 17% fat from coconut milk either :D. The saturated fat from coconut milk is very high and high levels of fat will be stored as fat since they share a similar molecular structure.

Thanks for sharing your advice!

Of course you will. Saturated fat will raise testosterone levels and supply quality calories for growth. I have built muscle on a low-carb, moderate protein and high-fat diet.

Saturated fat is very good for you if it is from natural sources like pastured animals and coconuts. It's the unnatural processed fats we need to avoid. The lipid hypothesis has never been proven, that's a fact!

What do you disagree with? Saturated fat being healthy? Coconut milk contains lauric acid. The only other abundant source of lauric acid in nature is human breast milk. Do you think human breast milk is bad for humans? Breast milk is 54% saturated, by the way.

We evolved to eat saturated fat. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate all of the animal and went for the fatty parts first because they knew it provided the most energy. Our body fat is saturated, we are designed to burn saturated fat for fuel, that's what our genes want!

The traditional Inuit people ate a diet of blubber animals, over 50% of calories from saturated fat yet they had excellent cardiovascular health. The same applies to the Masai and Tokeleu people, 50% of calories from saturated fat yet heart disease was alien. I'm sure you have heard about the 'French paradox', they eat the most saturated fat in Europe yet they have the lowest rates of heart disease. The reality is it's not a 'paradox', saturated fat simply doesn't cause heart disease. Heart disease is cause by inflammation and inflammation is caused by sugar, grains and excessive carbs.

Show me some studies of your theory of us burning saturated fat for fuel(our genes demand it lol). Back in ancient times it was feast or famine and the strong warriors lived through the 'thrifty' gene which was an ability to store more fat and last longer through fasting periods while the weak died off.

Thats why I disagree, theres no way saturated fat is healthy in a regular diet unless you want to just be soft.

[b]Does that mean that eating coconuts is bad for your heart?[/b]

Yes, and no. Fatty acids are known to increase cholesterol in the bloodstream, which can lead to blocking of the blood-vessels in the heart prodcing heart attacks. And lauric acid is also known to produce the largest increase in total cholesterol of all the fatty acids. But this isn't as bad as it seems, because most of this increase is due to an increase in so-called 'good' cholesterol. Medics have classified cholesterol into two types, HDL and LDL, depending on the density of the lipoproteins. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are very bad for you, as they greatly increase the chance of getting arterial blockages, whereas HDL are not such a problem. As a result, medics believe that lauric acid lowers the total:HDL cholesterol ratio more than any other fatty acid, either saturated or unsaturated. So eating coconuts may actually decrease the risk of getting heart disease, although that has yet to be properly proven.

[b]Is it found anywhere else?[/b]

It comprises 6.2% of the total fat in human-breast milk, 2.9% of that in cow's milk and 3.1% goat's milk

This is why I agree to disagree :)

thats my last post in this thread :)

The 3% in cow's milk is not an abundant source. Around 50% of the fat in coconut milk is lauric acid which is known for its health benefits. Coconut oil is actually the healthiest fat on earth!

Here is a meta-anaylsis of 21 studies on saturated fat and heart disease [url=http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/91/3/535.abstract?related-urls=yes&legid=ajcn;91/3/535&cited-by=yes&legid=ajcn;91/3/535]http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/91/3/535.abstract?related-urls=yes&legid=ajcn;91/3/535&cited-by=yes&legid=ajcn;91/3/535[/url]

There is no theory, your body fat is saturated, we burn body fat! Abundant carbohydrates were not available to our ancestors, they needed fat to survive and grow.

Why is saturated fat not be healthy? Carbohydrates make you fat and soft, not fat. Saturated fat is the most stable fat and it will not trigger an insulin response, it is a clean energy source.

Fat is essential, you NEED fat for a multitude of metabolic functions. Your brain is made from mostly saturated fats, 50% of your cell membranes are saturated fat.
