    coconut in general can be overdone. milk/water/flesh can cause severe cramping via dehydration. talk to any islander or survivalist. coconut is a food additive not something to base your diet arround. it is akin to drinking salt water. yes.... laxative to the max

        I don't notice a laxative effect. In fact, some days I just crack a can like an old-fashioned beer and have it as an "energy drink" (I get the stuff that doesn't separate in the can, or I shake it)

        I stay away from the powder. Silicon dioxide!

          Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I use a moderate amount of coconut products, but every day - milk in my coffee, anything I cook gets the oil, etc. I only have laxative problems if I have too much coconut oil after not having any for a while.

          Stats as of 3/1/12:
          5'10" female, 38 y/o
          Currently 140 lbs., approx 25% body fat
          WEIGHT GOAL: lose a bit more body fat and tighten up the rear end...basically, I want to look great naked. Everywhere else is looking great, but my ass/hips/thighs are being a bit stubborn. TMI?
          DAILY MACRO TARGETS: Cal: 1,857. Protein: 100g (400cal). Carb: 75g (300cal). Fat: 128g (1156cal).
          EXERCISE GOAL: incorporate 2-3 strength training sessions and 1 sprint session per week.

            Therefore it is very easy to eat too much in one sitting. I strongly believe that too much of one fat in one sitting and eating it too fast will give you problems.

            Lets think about Grok... He did not have coconut in abundance. They only grow in certain areas (right?). But, when they did find them they had to eat the meat. They were not able to guzzle down the meat in just a few minutes or less. They had to work for the coconut meat and I am sure they enjoyed it over a long period of time.

            I had some coconut pancakes this morning from the primal blueprint cookbook. I am starting to dislike this recipe because it simply has way too much coconut. A lot of coconut flour, milk and oil. Eating half a batch is waaaaaay too much saturated fat at one time. Coconut is unique in a healthy way but downing a lot in one sitting in a short period of time is just too much. At least that is what my body tells me
            Agreed- I find coconut milk, oil or butter all quite strong and can only have a little bit at a time. Grok probably didn't down a whole can of coconut milk in one sitting. He probably had to climb a big tree and find a ripe one and then work really hard to break the shell to get the meat.
