  • I think I would easily lose weight if I continued with this. Because for hours after taking 1 tbsp coconut oil I had this awful heartburn/nausea/bad aftertaste feeling. I drank lots of water but it didn't help. I forced myself to eat something about 4 hours later and it helped a bit but overall I have felt lousy all 3 days I have tried this.
    would it help to try a different oil, to take the oil differently etc?

    • I found (sadly) that the coconut oil did not work for me. It was nearly impossible to avoid the scent & flavor (which are key elements of the plan), and gave me some intestinal distress. What has worked for me is Light Olive Oil (no odor, no flavor) and I found one that is, in fact, 100% olive w/o some nasty canola slid in. I also have some refined walnut oil (recommended in the book)that I got at the health store, but it doesn't seem to work as well for me as the olive. I've ordered some MCT (no odor, no flavor)which should arrive later today, and I plan to experiment with it in tiny doses as others have had intestinal distress w/a full tblsp.

          Coconut oil can be a tummy trouble causer like Janie said. It has a lot of MCTs and it digests differently or with different enzymes..something like that. I would go with the Extra Light Olive Oil and see how that goes.

          • thanks. I use coconut oil regularly in cooking without any issues. It was weird though - it wasn't really about my stomach - it was more like a heartburn kind of feeling. I have "light tasting" olive oil. I will try that tomorrow.

              Same here. I use it all the time, but taking it straight definitely did me in for a couple of days. I still get gurggles every once in a while. Mine isn't heartburn though.

              • Hade to report back that the Togo chicken was delicious. Also those onions. Served it w/some grilled squash as my CSA has bestowed an abundance on us. Thanks for the recipe, Oceangrl.

                • Janie, glad you liked it. Love the onions.

                  The bone broth saves me from making bad choices. Always has. With Albertsons literally across the parking lot from me, there are many dangers close by. :0)

                  Now come back to this friendly and supportive cave where there is no arguing or engaging in endless debates..for Peats sakes. <<see what I did there?

                  • I'm still alive!

                    LadyTime hit, and along with it came a 2 day pity party of candy and Stupid Shit.

                    My dumb knee still isn't 100%, so I'm dragging my dick in the dirt because it's depressing
                    that I haven't been able to walk my 20K steps a day for over a week and a half now.

                    One day it felt GREAT, so I did all I can, next day, fine, then that night, blamo, back to
                    the sniper shots. Whatever.

                    I thought my debauchery would put me up in poundage, and I didn't take any oil
                    those days because, well, shit, when you're eating copious amounts of candy, who
                    cares, but I only went up from 120lbs to 122... which I could get off by blinking if
                    I wanted too. So maybe I didn't eat as much Stupid Shit as I thought.. but still, I think
                    I should be up TEN pounds with the troughs *I* ate. Har!

                    LadyTime is almost over, so back to the oil today. Been doing half MCT and half CO just
                    for the heck of it.

                    All righty, off to mope around.

                    At least I got my hallway floor all done..... 2nd coat of poly went on today and tomorrow I'll
                    do the third coat.... then I'll be done. So at least I've done sommmmmething. Sigh.


                    Jooooolia

                    p.s. and I've really been craving wine like there's no tomorrow. srsly had to white
                    knuckle it last night

                        Yes, husband loved the onions!

                        LOL, and yes, I should know better than to argue with the disciples.

                        Julia: so glad you are back. I was imagining you working on those floors, which I know is a horrid job, having done some myself. Up 2 lbs? Nothing, as you said.

                        I think this may be clicking in for me as I had a relatively small dinner (well, compared to usual) and I feel completely stuffed.

                        • Janie it is kicking in. I can easily eat 2 chicken thighs when I like the recipe and usually snack on one more late at night. I have only had one chicken thigh or 1/2 a steak and no snacking. Love it.

                          • You are so right that it is finally clicking in...and I can now see what many of you were raving about! Just also did my gym workout w/no trouble and am nearly back to my low.

                              Hooray!! I had an unexpected benefit last night. Kind of a funny one. I had gone to bed and was reading. I got up to see if my cherry tomatoes in my dehydrator were ready. Walking back through my kitchen, I almost grabbed a chicken thigh to knaw on. This night foraging is a flaw that I have to really watch. I realized if I ate it, I would have to wait a full hour before I could have my last shot and I wanted to go to sleep. I shut my fridge, gulped my shot and went to bed.

                              • That's cool! I'm going to add the evening shot tonight for the first time, as I do wake up hungry. Before trying this I had gotten myself in a pattern of early morning writing and just having coffee, so toning down the morning hunger will be supportive of my keeping to that schedule.
