Amount you use totally depends on your current diet protocols, goals, etc. But, I would imagine that most people here are following Clemson’s protocols or a derivative of it, supplementing about 40-60 grams may be a good starting figure. If you use coconut milk in your shake(s), a 13oz can I believe yields ~ 60 grams of fat. If you follow Berardi’s macro combos, good way to P+F it up, is by a divine BSL anti-catabolic formula + coconut milk. Or slam some coconut oil and wash it down with a BSL formula or any other high quality casein mixture.
This all depends on your metabolism and training style…I use vertical integration with macronutirent splitting and I find athletes actually loose fat with high doses of fish oil, olive oil, and coconut fat. New athletes take half the amount to start since they tend to have fasting glucose levels in the morning above 110 from years of eating stupid cereals and washing meals with soda.
Remember to use the taste of thai for a store bought brand.
Where do you buy your coconut oil from here in the UK? Holland and Barrett?
I haven’t come across coconut oil over here yet, but have been consuming 200ml (half a can) of coconut milk ever since reading Clemson’s articles and posts on the value of coconut fat for athletes. I have only come across one brand- Dunn’s River, and it costs only 50p per 400ml can and you can buy it at Sainsbury’s. I’m not sure if I’m getting any benefit out of this brand and dosage, as Clemson will not have heard of the brand . I will try to switch to a good oil when I get chance.
