Daily Consumption of Coconut Products.

Answered on August 19, 2014

I recently started purchasing coconut milk to incorporate into my diet and was curious as to how much I should limit myself per day. The cans are 14 fl ounces and I figured 1 a day is fine but I'd rather be certain because the calorie content of one can is pretty huge. So how much is too much?

Artisana's ingredients are "100% organic raw coconut."

As of this comment, i'd say you were running off of fat energy for this time, and that hey! You have a good rapport with your body because you did not feel the need to eat when you had all the energy you needed.

Have you checked that the coconut butter doesn't contain sulfites (such as sulfur dioxide) as preservatives? I get gas systematically whenever I eat a brand of coconut cream that has sulfur dioxide in it, whereas just coconut milk or coconut flakes with no added ingredients don't have that effect. Just a thought.

I drank one today at 4pm and as of right now (8pm) I am still not hungry. I'm usually a 5 or so small meals a day kind of guy so this is unusual for me to not hunger for flesh.

How much are you hungry for?

The key to this diet is to eat to appetite and see where your body leads. If drinking a whole can of coconut milk seems to lead to food cravings or weight gain (poor appetite control), then you'd probably want to cut down on it. But that's a very individual question, and one that can only be answered with self-experimentation.

While its hard to measure, some have measured due to its high anti-microbial properties, TOO much coconut can depopulate gut flora and hinder digestion.

So if you are just starting out with coconut, moderation is advised.

too much coconut butter (like the stuff from Artisana) def gives me some gas. Too much concentrated fiber maybe. Dangerous to keep around cuz the stuff is stupiddelicious. I use coconut oil every day though, with no ill effects. I dont do the coconut milk daily like the OP mentions, though. I myself would just be slightly wary of doing that much of anything daily. I mean, a little variety prolly goes a long way. Serious calories in that stuff, too.
