  • Drinking heavy cream is awesome

    Who else does it?
    For the past months I have tortured myself to eat extreme amounts of butter and bacon to gain weight. Then this simple thing hit me, just drink cream . I drink about half a liter a day, gives me an ease 1700 calories.
    It's also delicious as a substitute for milk in chocolate milk.
    well then

      I've sipped it with egg yolk, sugar, and brandy added.

        I love it also, but whenever I've switched to it for coffee, I notice that after about three days of a quarter cup a day, my stomach starts to feel a little ooky. Not pain, just the promise of nausea. Butter doesn't do it, so it's kind of weird to me that heavy cream does.

          OMG! Where's Dr. BorkBork?

          I love about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of cream on my raspberries in the morning.

            Ah, to have a teenage metabolism.....

            I love the stuff but 1700 cal is about what I eat for a whole day. I wish there was room in the calorie budget for chugging cream.

              I do this pretty regularly on my high-fat (non-workout) days when I realize I haven't had enough calories. A half-pint is a quick, DELICIOUS 800 calorie energy drink. Love it.

                Yep, those poor ectomorph hardgainers have to pay their dues! Here Vince Girondas heavy cream receipe for hardgainers:

                12 oz. half & half
                12 raw eggs.
                1/3 cup protein powder
                1 banana
                Blend it up & drink it troughout the day, between meals and before retiring.

                  That does seem like a delicious way to gain weight. You may want to cut back on it when you get close to your goal weight as losing weight isn't always as simple as gaining.

                      I've done it and I have to concur that it is a milky mouthgasm.

                        In reality though it could be a delicious way to lose weight.

                        I'm drinking my 500cal heavy cream latte right now.

                          I do. I started when I was IF'ing and struggling to eat enough calories in my evening window.

                          I've since moved to pouring about 200ml on a baked banana with dark choc as my dessert of choice (not that I added breakfast back in again).

                          I've noticed that my body temperature is always high during the night when I have cream as a dessert. So while CICO is true, for me cream drives up BEE, so a calorie isn't a calorie.....

                            I've had a small cup of it, warmed, with cocoa powder and xylitol for hot chocolate. Delicious... but I have the same problem as Paleobird, although my calorie budget is 2,200.

                              All. The. Time.

                              Not only is it one of the cheapest non-butter food energy sources in the neighborhood, but it achieves what every "meal replacement" product on the block is trying to achieve...without trying.
