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

What about the lauric acid and having a similar nutritional profile to breast milk?

No magic to be had with coconut oil.

Some foods which are not whole do have unique health benefits that many people value and therefore have every reason to incorporate in their diet.

I tried something like this the other day. I was late for work and had no time to make breakfast, and knew that if I didnt eat anything I would probably end up eating something sub-optimal for lunch out of hunger. So I had one large table spoon(~30g) of coconut oil. It definitely helped calm my hunger for a pretty much the whole day, but I starting feeling awful at around noon. I had stomach pains as if I had binged on gluten. Its not an intolerance issue either, I cook with coconut oil regularly. I just don't think our bodies were designed to eat saturated fats unaccompanied by protein/other food, especially refined fats like coconut oil. By all means try it yourself, thats just my n=1.

This is the thing about paleo I hope dies soon: eating coconut oil. Just eat real food. Coconut oil is NOT real food, people! It is a refined and processed food isolate.

Some eat only fats in the morning. Next month (once my routine/schedule change) I'm going to try breakfast as only Abel's fatty coffee.

We'll see how it goes.

Matt, sorry but organic virgin coconut oil is a Fully Functional Food and is widely available as a raw unrefined and unprocessed oil.
