Virigin Coconut Oil PWO?


is 1 tbs (10g) of virgin cold pressed coconut oil (MCT) okay as a postowrkout meal along with carbs and protein?


meh, it will slow the digestion of carbs/protein pwo, which is not optimal, although i doubt it makes much of a difference.


but MCT is different from any other fats. it is absorbed very quickly. i heard that. sb else?


Google post workout nutrition. Compare the different recommendations.......how many of them recommend fats (any type) post workout? If you poke around long enough you will find one that tells you what you want to hear.


You'll be fine.


Save the oil for breakfast and keep the postworkout nutrition to protein and carbs....
