    Saturated fat is not evil. MCTs can be beneficial.

    Has saturated fat? So does milk and meat. Fat is where your calories are at my man. You have to decide if you want to gain weight or not. Either chug down some fat or try to eat 15lbs of broccoli(which would supply you with 2000calories 170g of protein)

    It's not like you're eating organic blueberries/rasberries, pineapple, free range grass fed beef, seaweed, and all of that. You're eating some bananas, peanut butter, and oatmeal--good for a high school kid but let's be a little realistic here. Coconut oil is healthy for you and a great oil for cooking and coconut milk tastes great (to me at least). Just start eating more food--good and bad.

    More mass would also help my acceleration in football. With John Berardi's calorie calculator, it says I should be taking in over 4000 calories per day. Also, I am done timing a 40 until next off-season so I dont need to diet well for that so I guess I will just start eating more fat.

    Eh I am not quite saying that and some of it depends on your opinions on some nutrition related subjects that arent quite understood yet.

    Having a good diet is always a good thing and I dont think you should scratch it because your not gaining weight.

    I think you should just try to find ways to increase calorie intake while keeping a healthy diet. Like I said maybe do some studying on foods that have higer absorbtion. Maybe find healthy drinks to add to your diet that have some calories fruit/veggie juices, more milk, get more caloires that way if you can.

    Fat intake does not make you fat and does not increase body fat, but you will still want to watch it from a health factor. I dont think adding a lot of coconut milk is the answer seems to have a ton of fat. I mean just be smart, if your eating healthy just find healthy ways to get some more calories.

    I have a friend who is a powerlifter and he believes to gain weight one should eat as much solid food at one sitting then finish off with drinking as much juice a couple glasses heavy duty jucies ex: cranberry juice, it seems to work pretty well him.
