"Good" Fat is "Good" Fat right. Can someone explain to me why I can eat a lot of bacon fat (I mean nawing on huge chunks of fat only) and my tummy doesn't hurt BUT if I eat same amount of say coconut oil or even fatty fish I feel ill.

No, not really. I haven't really heard or read much about it though. I guess it might make sense as a possibility, but at least for coconut oil I would think the fat would usually be absorbed before reaching the yeast since candida typically predominates more in the cecum and colon than the small intestines. I'm just speculating though.

Hey...just out of curiosity have you seen anything that indicates candida die off as a reason for stomach pain in association with either probiotics or coconut oil? I can't find anything but theory on such instances.

So called good fats are not always good for everyone. Individual tolerance is a trump card.

I've seen a lot of people report intestinal discomfort from coconut oil, this could be due to the unique medium chain fats or a sensitivity to salicylates or something else. As for the fish I don't know, but I have seen fish oil studies in which subjects reported abdominal discomfort as a common side effect.
