Hi

I just started the Paleo lifestyle and would love to lose some weight:)

I was wondering if coconut cream concentrate is suggested for newbies or is it when u have transitioned into the paleo a little bit.

thanks Manasa

Yeah. You'd think that something so fatty would have a limit or stop mechanism but for the paleo adapted, this stuff is just as "bad" as peanut butter to your stereotypical out of control dieter.

I can easily binge on coconut cream concentrate, so it was a no-go for me in the beginning. Instead, I kept organic dried coconut flakes (unsweetened) on hand and would eat a quarter cup if I needed something to munch on.

Many add coconut from the beginning. Some tout its fat-burning properties. Not being a scientist, I cannot speak to that.

Coconut cream is a highly concentrated food. You might want to consider small amounts of it only. It is very filling, though, so small amounts should be fine. Good luck.

Manasa, I know it seems like there are two ways to do paleo -- for weight loss and for maintenance/health.

My suggestion is to detox from SAD with a very tight diet of veggies and meats. Once that is complete, start adding in foods to meet your desired health goals. The weight loss will occur naturally when you are eating healthy.
