Re: New Guy here

It depends on what is available to you in your locale really. For me its not any more expensive than good quality cow milk, for others it simply isn't carried commonly in their local stores and can be quite expensive.

Re: New Guy here

Do you drink coconut milk or use it for preparing meals. I've used it for making curry, but nothing else really. I'm curious to hear other uses..

Re: New Guy here

I think I actually made myself lactose intolerant over the last week. I was just drinking more milk then usual, now I cant touch milk or cheese or even my whey powder.
Kinda feel like an idiot right now haha, I never thought it would make me sick like that though

Re: New Guy here

Got 3 classes down since my fundamentals. I'm feeling great so far, sore but great. Already feeling much stronger in the lifts and just all around. Probably going to take a day off to rest tomorrow.

I saw this quote on another thread, thought it was pretty deep:

"Some one once told me the definition of Hell: The last day you have on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become."

Its good for anything you'd use milk for . I drink maybe .5-1 cup most days, good for making the occasional fruit smoothie or mixing a a couple tbsp with tea/coffee. Its a great source of healthy fat & calories.

Interesting. Would you use full fat coconut oil or reduced? In the can or in a carton? I've used the full fat coconut oil in curry, but it was very thick. I'm sure there's better types for drinking.

Coconut milk, not oil, though I use oil for cooking as well. I've used both coconut milk from the can (various brands) and the carton (SO Delicious brand, unflavoured)), I find the stuff in the carton is much thicker so I usually have to water it down for regular drinking but its good as is for everything else. I also just noticed Silk brand came out with coconut milk in cartons, so I'm keep to try that I'm betting it is chock full of sugar though.
