What the hell is it with Coconut oil and effing Diarrhea?
Great weight loss, btw, Warmbear. I saw your Facebook post today.
I was a tad bit confused there for a sec but you must be on the Ontario paleo facebook. I was like do I know you? yeah I wonder if I am loosing weight too fast sometimes, 50 lbs ish since easter? of course if I cheated less, it would be faster too.
Knifegill, you know he's not talking about an energy "whoosh", right? More of a rush to the bathroom than an energy rush.
That happened to me when I tried bulletproof coffee, but it doesn't bother me with cooking. Like everyone says, just use left. Halve the amount of CO and make it up with butter. Try just using it a couple of times a week. Add just a drop. Whatever method makes sense to you, try working up to it from small amounts and see if you can tolerate it. If not, then maybe just don't use it. It's good stuff but it's not necessary for health.
Started PB on Monday, June 4. I'm focusing on my health in 2012, including taking natural supplements, zumba and strength training, regular church attendance and studying the Bible, spending time with good friends, and reading more. I want to see what health milestones I can achieve this year!

I have the same issues, I generally use it just to lube the pan, but I did add a good dollop on my scrambled eggs the other day and I mean a BIG dollop. Within 30 minutes I felt so sick and weak, I thought I had come down with the stomach flu that everyone has been having, maybe it was but it did seem a coincidence. I went home and sat around for the rest of the day feeling decidedly 'off'.
I have had this reaction before when I first got some CO and started zealously using it OTT. So its back to a teaspoon a day!!

Just found this "whoosh" thread after a bit of poking around.
Things had been really liquidy (sorry) in the afternoon when I was ramping up my coconut oil in the bulletproof coffee. I figured that was the problem, eased up a bit and the problem went away. This morning, to meet whatever the weird craving was, I beefed up the Kerrygold and really overdid it on the coconut oil. Well, my a$$ was like a faucet...
thank grok i found this thread. I was wondering if the increase in vegetables or tainted chicken was the culprit. Or if this lifestyle was right for me.....but now me thinks ive been using way to much virgin CO when cooking!
As i read this i just got done re heating some lunch which was grilled chicken thighs and saute vegetable medley. after reading this i decided to set the veggies aside and a co worker inquired if he could eat them....I said sure have at it, but be warned it might clean you out...I'll update later....
Innnnnteresting. I only cook with CO, I don't "eat" it.
But, I have been having huge issues with coconut milk. I don't drink or use regular milk at all as I have lactose tolerance issues so I really wanted to start using coconut milk. Every time I do but stomach is in knots and I end up "whoosh"ing on the toilet. Tonight I tried to use it, but the smell made me absolutely sick. I threw a brand new can of it away.
I'm thinking it's just not for me. I'll stick to just using CO for cooking.
