AIP folks... what coconut products do you consume? oil, milk? :)
I am very new to the Paleo diet (only about two weeks) and wanted to know if coconut milk really does help you lose fat?!? I thought it was high in cholesterol and increases your LDL level! I am allergic to almonds so almond milk is out. Could... (more)
Cholesterol is only found in animals, not plants, so there is none in coconut. And dietary cholesterol does not raise cholesterol in the blood. Dietary cholesterol is actually very good to consume, especially for hormone function.
I am a type 2 diabetic, and I found that switching to Paleo over a year ago brought my blood sugar down from the 360~480 range to the low 200's. FANTASTIC, RIGHT? I've taken insulin before, but it caused a rapid, disgusting weight gain of 2.5... (more)
Today I went to Whole Foods looking for some yogurt. After reading a blog about how tasty So Delicious Greek Style yogurt is, I had to try it for myself. I purchase about 10 small containers of the yogurt. As as I get home, I open up the... (more)
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)
I'm from the Mediterranean and I live in Middle Europe. I try to eat according to traditional cuisines of these regions as much as I can, mostly limiting imported food to a few exotic spices. Even though there are many foods that didn't... (more)
One option might be to get something like 23andMe done and figure out where your genes fall, then try to eat according to the heaviest regions that comprise your DNA. Might be false logic, but seems like it would be interesting.
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)
Hi guys, I'm new to Paleo but not new to an healthy eating, low carbs style, Atkins, Dukan, low fat style... Name it, I've tried them all!! My hashimoto thyroid is giving me a lot of troubles as I've gained weight when I started to re... (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)
I have a can of coconut milk in my fridge since I've seen a lot it in the paleo world and its now a hard solid. It says to use within four days so I was wondering what are some good uses or recipes that involve coconut cream. I really don't know... (more)
Use in place of cow's milk/cream Add to smoothies Make a kind of chocolate pudding with cocoa/cacao powder, chia seeds, desired sweetener and coconut cream Sit it in a bowl of warm water to soften it
Went and bought some refined coconut oil because I heard it's the healthiest and found out after I purchased it that virgin coconut oil is (supposedly) much healthier, however I've heard some people say it doesn't matter, the only thing different... (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?
I am trying to use coconut oil as an antibacterial and an antifungal as I am beginning a paleo-based diet to combat SIBO and heal a leaky gut. Of course I know that the real thing is most likely better than a pill form, but I have been... (more)
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)
I tried making my own kefir coconut yoghurt using the body ecology starter and following the instructions that came with it but the yoghurt just doesn't get thick enough. Any suggestions from people that have done this before. I'm just using... (more)
My homemade yoghurt is never as thick as the store bought. Gelatin works to thicken it, just make sure you buy quality gelatin. Let it sit in the coconut water to bloom, then heat.
my (plastic) container of coconut oil from KTC is refined, but not hydrogenated. its not in the fridge. right now its warm outside and I was baking a lot these days - yesterday my coconut oil got really fluid and yellow, not white anymore. is it... (more)
every time i try to drink coconut milk or add creamed coconut to meals, for the next couple of days my throat feels like something is stuck in there and basically hurts which is annoying. when i try to drink milk, my keratosis pilaris flares up... (more)
looking for a pre workout as i will start to train fasted in mornings so i was wondering what is your biggest contributor to energy? butter,chocolate,coffee,bananas,coconut oil? ...and why do you think this particular food gives you a lot of... (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)
Okay... I'm kinda freaking out as I type this. Lately I've been consuming a lot of coconut products,e specially coconut oil. I've also been doing a vlc, High-fat diet (although I threw in 100gs of carbs today) I started getting bloating symptoms... (more)
