AIP folks... what coconut products do you consume? oil, milk? :)
Hi guys, I've been meaning to ask this for some time, does anyone follow the dadamo blood type diet or do most paleo people think it's nonsense? The reason I ask is because he says to avoid COCONUT: TYPE O: Secretor: AVOID:... (more)
Can honestly say without feeling like I am over exaggerating that good quality MCT oil is quite possibly not just healthiest oil but one of the healthiest foods on this planet. MCT oil is generally concentrated coconut oil, it can also be made... (more)
Shredded coconut, coconut flakes, dried coconut... Whatever you call it, I LOVE THE STUFF! Its the only way I consume coconut in my diet (no coconut milk, oil, flour) I crave it everyday, and have it by the spoon, but one spoon or two is never... (more)
It's possible that you aren't eating enough fat and your body is craving shredded coconut and nuts because they are primarily made up of fat. Try eating other fat sources but be generous with the serving - avocados, coconut oil, butter, olive... (more)
When I ingest coconut (in any form) I break out in hives and my throat/tongue swell up. Starting a Paleo lifestyle with my hubby when a good portion of the recipes include coconut is rather difficult and I need suggestions on coconut... (more)
It's not easy to get all that Paleo goodness if you're not either rich or live in the country. Shortly after discovering coconut cream, it's become a dietary staple. I usually have 1/2 - 1 full can of Trader Joe's coconut cream per day. What,... (more)
Can I still have smoothies in the morning with berries and bananas (both high in carbs)Also can I have dairy? High in carbs no? And when you say coconut milk are you talking about the milk alternative in the milk section by the almond/rice milk?... (more)
I know that coconut oil is very useful for hair, but I've heard many times that coconut milk is also used, it is added in homemade shampoos, masks etc. Has someone tried to use it, did you see any results?
Hey does anyone have experience with different brands of coconut flour? I am looking at Coconut Secret and Tropical Traditions. You might say, "try both," however I live outside of the ever convenient USA and opinions would be super helpful before... (more)
First, what country do you live in? There may be alternatives to shipping all the way from the USA. Secondly, I personally would like to know the difference between the flour, the meal and the grated.
I've wanted to add more coconut in my diet and so I've started consuming creamed coconut. I've noticed that its very filling, a couple of spoons makes for a quick and paleo breakfast with some coffee that also fights off brain fog in the... (more)
We are on the GAPS diet, which emphasises the importance of ferments as well as fats. The problem is, if coconut oil is antibacterial/viral, wont it nix the probiotics in the ferments we are eating at any meal? I like to put it in a smoothie... (more)
Would paleo work using lean meats and getting sat. fat from other sources such as coconut oil etc.? Sort of like this guy: http://www.ownmultiplesclerosis.com/multiple-sclerosis-diet/ (more)
I mash up some frozen bananas to make banana soft serve (sometimes with coconut flakes, some nuts, or some cocoa powder, it's like a blizzard from DQ!) and then top it with some coconut cream, yummmm!
So I know eating coconut oil will help my thyroid function - and I can feel the energy it gives me after I eat it, even if it's just what I cook my eggs in. My question is this - how much does the vagina absorb of the coconut oil if it is used as... (more)
Coconut cream has more coconut solids in it. It's delicious to eat on its own, but not right for cooking. It melts, but it will make everything taste much more like coconuts than oil will, and it will probably mess with the texture of whatever you... (more)
I love coconut water after a workout, I'm new to Paleo and not sure, any help would be great. Thanks.
It has like nothing for the vitamins and minerals, why is it strongly inflammatory, is it because saturated fat is inflammatory or what? I don't get it, I thought this was a health food. http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fats-and-oils/508/2 (more)
Does anyone see any problems, benefits, suggestions to this; What if I completely fast for 16 hours then all I have is a tablespoon of coconut oil for another few hours? Thanks
I have recently discovered a love of coconut water. I drink about half a litre a day. I am looking to cut fat. it has a lot of sugar. Should I be drinking as much or it at all?? I generally bring a carton to crossfit to drink during and post workout. (more)
Most of the coconut waters I have found have way too much sugar in them. IMO.
I love the taste and texture but coconut meat just doesn't seem to sit well with me..I feel slightly nauseous and it seems to blunt my appetite for hours. Is this normal? Is it just the high amount of fiber? Should I cook it to make it more... (more)
Is UN-refined coconut oil likely to be contaminated with MOLD? Would REFINED coconut oil be less likely to be contaminated with MOLD? Does the refining process destroy all the goodness of unrefined coconut oil? I'm beginning a low-mold n=1... (more)
