    The problem isn't the cholesterol...it's the carbs.

    you can use heavy cream in your coffee, as long as you count it towards your daily calories.

    One cool thing about coconut oil/milk is that the saturated fat in it is mostly lauric acid, which is a 14 chain saturated fat.

    It's pretty much a MCT.

    It's harmless as far as saturated fats go.

    QS.....we are less concerned about Saturated Fat (SF) when in lower insulin space, and SF in general..............we should have some good info here on SF that w8 or someone, can link you to! (Of course cis and trans fats are another matter.)

    i'm not sure about the half and half, but i believe it has more sugars in it, closer to milk. If you want to be a stickler with your diet, then avoid it, but once in a while its okay.

    Yeah probably. In all honesty i couldn't tell you for certain, i just know that it's mostly (or a good portion are) lauric acid.

    Yeah, I have little concern for saturated fat. Except if i am on a gaining phase maybe. And/or in the presence of a higher carb intake.
