I've been eating coconut oil every day this week- from coconut cream to coconut bark. The coconut cream I had cup of for two days (and then it was all gone... too good), and the coconut bark (3 cups coconut oil, 4 handfulls of almonds, 2-3 cups shredded coconut, some honey, and I used up some tablespoons of old Enjoy Life chocolate chips) I've had quite a bit of the last few days. It's almost gone. If I had to pin-point how much oil I've been eating, it probably averages around 6-10 tablespoons a day... I'm not really worried though because I haven't had any reactions, and I need the gain weight.

It's beyond me how can some people eat coconut oil, or any other oil straight. I can't because it makes me sick( I cook with coconut oil thought as its very healthy for you, for example here is the article about coconut oil for cholesterol.

I can't understand either why people would eat/drink coconut oil straight....There is something strange about this. I use coconut oil as a hair conditioner once a week but that's the extent of me using it straight.
I sometimes eat some chunks of salted organic grass-fed butter. It tastes insanely nice but I wouldn't eat more than a chunk, it is really like a treat and more than that would make me gag ... but CO ? no way, the taste is a little repelling.
I think the extra Virgin stuff is beautiful in taste, appearance and texture. Unfortunately I can't stomach it off the spoon - it makes me burp loudly. Tubers taste good roasted in it though. It goes with sweet potatoes very well. We made an energy bar with it. It defo fills you up. How can any CW person look at EV coconut oil or smell it and say it is bad for you?!
CW says "any thing that's good for you tastes bad-and anything that tastes good is bad for you". Primal has shown me that's false but pre primal my appetite and taste buds used to be messed up. I believed it too.
The plumbing has been a bit backed up -- too many potatoes in too few days, I think -- so I just added 1 T to my black coffee and licked the spoon. Meh on the solids off the spoon, and double meh on the non-blended coffee; tastes weird. But if it gets things moving again, I will have zero complaints!
