  • Marth yes, that's what I do.
    Sol, thanks for the info... can't see myself doing that yet, but yes many do the oil pulling for teeth whitening as well. I use the oil face wash myself. Not sure about brushing with oil though.. but its a thought I will keep for the future

    • Oh Christ, I forgot today I signed up for a wine tasting evening, we will be tasting 6 glasses of Swiss wine which is very rare am told, 3 whites followed by 3 red.... no idea why I signed up for it, at the time I thought it would be fun... but now its going to mess up with my experiment!! in addition am not much to a drinker, I usually strugle with finishing a glass (sometimes I have to drink it in a spritza format.. if I finished too, its usually a miracle... so no way I will be able to drink 6 !! foolish !!

        You're supposed to taste it, not drink it.
        I'd love to have a night out with you.
        FTM. I'm not biased, I hope everybody beats the mags!

          • I've been reading where some say it takes awhile for the oil to start working. Also, some take it before bed.

            Would there be any advantage do you think, if a person took 2 tbs, 3x/day? The oil is not bothering me taking 2 tbs/2x/day.

            • I actually did the sugar water for a week back in March or April, I forget exactly; I was curious to see its effects. My impression was that it did work--as in, I got the appetite suppression (though not as strongly as with oil) and I didn't gain weight--but it was honestly unpleasant drinking sugar water twice a day, and it gave me shakes and crashes, as sugar usually does. I was doing just plain white sugar in water. I gave it a week before getting tired of it and going back to oil.

              MCT oil update: my AS doesn't seem to be nearly as strong with this stuff, but I like it because it's flavorless and so healthy. I'm going to up my daily intake to 3T to see if I get better AS.

              • I've never heard of anyone taking it more than twice a day, ez. But if you're ok with it, try it. What the heck. Please report back here with your experiences. My hat is off to you for actually finding the time to do it 3x! I can barely manage once. I really have to reevaluate my time management over here, sheesh.

                heatseeker, that's the main reason I didn't want to do the sugar water....I am totally off sugar now and kind of felt like it would be a step backwards? If you know what I mean. I don't use honey or stevia or agave or anything anymore. I get all of my sugar from food. I feel that sugar is very triggering for me and so wanted to stay as far away from it as possible. Thanks for sharing your n=1. Good luck with upping the mct!

                  • Hi ez, the only restrictions mentioned in the book are:
                    1- Should be flavourless oil and/or sugar water
                    2-No food/drink(apart from water) hour before and hour after the oil/sugar water
                    2-Total flavourless calories should be no more than 400

                    Anything else is to be done in whatever is best for you.

                    However in the book there are some shared experiences (I suppose you'll see it on the forum as well) where others have shared optimal way that worked for them.

                    • Actually I know a few diet plans that insist on no snaking/no drinking (apart from water) between meals, so theoritically its totally possible for one to divide their doze into 3 or 4.

                        I presume you mean snacking, but I like the way this reads.

                        • I am SO down with no snaking between meals! Or any time, for that matter.

                          NO SNAKES!

                            Think it might be hard to get 3 in if you are only allowed 400 cals. 2 tbs of EVO is 240.

                            Might have to look for a lighter calorie oil if I'm going to try 3 times a day.

                              Yeah, three times a day at 2tbsp per time is over 700 calories of oil, and I think all oils
                              are around 130 cals per tablespoon... otherwise you're getting into frankenfood territory
                              if you try to find a lighter calorie oil.

                              With regard to the EVOO, I had one that was HELLA FULL FLAVOR - peppery even, but the
                              other day I went to Grocery Outlet and they had one with a little "flavor key" on the side
                              saying that it was "light flavor", and it was! No peppery and it was less viscous than the
                              other brand I got.

                              Still 130 cals per tbsp though.

                              I've already had my CO shot for the morning, but I'm trying the EVOO later, just cuz I bought
                              it, might as well use it too.

                              With regard to the sugar water, it may be less calories and all, but sugar is never good for you.

                              Not being a purist, but just stating a fact.

                              Oil has way more calories, but at least it DOES something. Brain likes it, joints like it, etc.

                              But, there's a dude on the SLD website that did this with REAL Coke, so, whatever gets you the
                              appetite suppressant, then go for it!

                              I'm stickin' with oil.

                              In other news, I AGREE, NO SNAKES! HAR!
