    Heavy Cream Bad?

    So on another weight loss/health forum I'm on, I mentioned my "Super Nog" as a way to get 1200 cals pretty much instantly, with plenty of protein, and not feel hungry all day long. My super nog contains a half pint of heavy whipping cream, 6 eggs, vanilla, and nutmeg. A few days ago, I asked on here if HWC was a good choice for fats, and the general consensus was "Yum, go for it!", but I got knocked down on this other forum for mentioning it b/c it's loaded with saturated fat.
    Is my super nog bad? I thought it was the perfect post-workout snack/meal with all of its protein, virtually nonexistent carbs, and delicious fat.

    CW does not like saturated fats. If the forum is CW then they will say it is bad. You, luckily, know better.

    I use HWC in so many things, I chuckle in the face of those that get snooty about it. Remember, CW+HWC=bad. PB+HWC=good.

    I use 35% cream since I think it's about the highest % possible while still being liquid'ish. Higher fat = better, like Georgette said.

    That said, I don't think fats are what most people go for post-workout. That might be a good question to field in the Fitness forum, actually. Most people I know try to reduce fats more than they otherwise would and up carbs a bit.

    Oh, good. Cuz I thought my Super Nog was pretty flipping awesome. As much protein as any powder you will find on the market, only dirt cheap (50c for HWC, 80c for 1/2 dozen eggs, spices already in my well-stocked cabinet).

    My goal is to keep tweaking it to make it even thicker, but keeping the ingredients the same. I think whipping the egg whites and the HWC separately helped yesterday. Pre-diet anything (CW/PB), I was an egg nog hound, but the stuff at the store is so bad for you, IMO. Homemade nog can be so much better, cheaper, and healthier!

    Patrick, I kind of fell off the PB horse for a few weeks, so I'm trying to teach my body to enjoy fats instead of carbs again. I'm a monster when I get home from gym, just absolutely ornery until I eat something. I thought maybe something that was high protein and high fat would be a good choice?

    Dang! Groceries are cheap where you live? I pay $3.50 for a pint of HWC and $5/doz for eggs. Granted it's organic, but still I don't see non organics as cheap as you're getting. That nog would be $4.25 for me. I guess that's not too bad for 1200 calories worth of food, though.

    I'm kinda jealous of your super-nog.

    Tomorrow I'm going to make a cream and egg yolk shake for post lifting.

    The saturated fat, cholesterol and protein content is truly awe inspiring. And one can chug 1000 calories in 15 seconds. ^^

    Best to avoid fats after a workout, if your goal is to 'lean out'. General rules for working out, eating and getting lean are:
    On workout days, increase your carbs slightly (depends what type of workouts you are doing);
    On non work out days, increase your fat, and lower your carbs;
    keep protein steady on all days.

    Again, it depends what type of workouts you are doing an what your goals are. I wouldn't pound back the fat post-workouts.
