What about cream or mct oil for fats?


#1

I was thinking about creating my own soylent. I met before some informations, that MCT oil is very good for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-chain_triglyceride does anyone use it?
http://www.bulletproofexec.com/how-to-make-your-coffee-bulletproof-and-your-morning-too/ here i found it first.
and what about cream? (just as part of fats) it could improve taste…

I want to do low carb high fat soylent as is my current diet so I want to give fats special attention. what did you take in account for fats? omega3/6 ratio? what else?

I’m planning to to something very similar, as oils are cheaper for me and probably healthier than just carbs-maltodextrin.
My concept is like this: olive oil 80g, plus 20g of mixed oils from other sources,
and some MCT’s either from coconut oil or just pure mct bulk depending on what will be cheaper.
Will try a 1:1 calorie ratio between fats and carbs and 15% of total carbs coming from protein as I’m bulking up in gym and being quite active.

Results will start coming in about a month from now. Items are still being shipped to me :slight_smile:

so this is my sheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsouGfNbhd7RdFU4eGJLSGJ4YXpYeWk0cmg5eThlWnc#gid=5

I plan to lower carbohydrates if i will feel well


#4

so i believe that omega 3:omega 6 should be 1:1

now i am investigating ideal ratio of SFA:MUFA:PUFA do you have any good information about it?
here is source of information about this ration in oils

"Most experts agree that the omega 6:3 ratio should range from 1:1 to 5:1"

"…whereas increased levels of omega-3 PUFA (a low omega-6/omega-3 ratio) exert suppressive effects. In the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, a ratio of 4/1 was associated with a 70% decrease in total mortality. A ratio of 2.5/1 reduced rectal cell proliferation in patients with colorectal cancer, whereas a ratio of 4/1 with the same amount of omega-3 PUFA had no effect. The lower omega-6/omega-3 ratio in women with breast cancer was associated with decreased risk. A ratio of 2-3/1 suppressed inflammation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and a ratio of 5/1 had a beneficial effect on patients with asthma, whereas a ratio of 10/1 had adverse consequences. "

"The optimal ratio to allow both the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids to function optimally is closer to 1 to 1."

I am going to try coconut oil when I get a blender. It’s very easy to balance its Omega-6 fatty acids with some Omega-3 from fish oil capsules.
