Ok, I'm confused about Coconut fat Vs. Nut fat. The posts I've read caution about eating too many nuts because of the Omega6 and weight gain. But I'm supposed to eat Coconut oil by the spoonful? I'm in week 5 of the diet and struggling with failio syndrome; I'm an athlete and was a vegan for 10 years so I already had very low body fat and am very physically active. I have not had a lot of energy on the diet and I'm craving nuts and chocolate like crazy. I just made the connection to not enough fats and have started a spoonful of coconut oil before meals and adding Coconut milk to everything I can. I'm getting my carbs by eating a root vegetable stew for breakfast, and veggies with all my meals, and a post-workout berry smoothie (with hemp protein powder and sunflower seeds) or a sweet potato . I understand the Omega 6 angle but why would nut fat cause weight gain but coconut fat not?
No announcement yet.
