  • Coconut by-products

    So I read where lots of people are using large amounts of coconut by-products. I read constantly about what Grok would do or wouldn't do in the forums. With that said, how do you reconcile eating so much coconut products when the vast majority of Groks clearly didn't have access to unlimited amounts of coconunts?

    Because it's healthy. The paleo axiom is only good to the extent as it gives us a starting point and a hypothesis. We have to test that hypothesis and defer to the empirical evidence and reasoned arguments. It just turns out that coconut is healthy. All the evidence points in favor and none of it contradicts it.

      Which Groks are you talking about? I assume that those living on tropical islands DID have unlimited access to coconuts.

        Coconuts may very well be one of nature's perfect foods. Part of the reason why coconut is so great is because there are so many uses for it, including any so called byproducts. For eons, people have not only been eating and cooking with coconuts, but using almost all parts of the plant for various other uses. As Stabby said, there has never been any study or dietary movement that was purely anti-coconut. Coconuts are pretty ubiquitous in the regions where early Groks ran around, so I would imagine that they never faced the risk of running low.

          The more coconuts I eat, the more fat I lose, and the better my skin looks. I say hoo-rah!

            Not saying I disagree, just wanted to here what you all thought. I've been using coconut oil and coconut milk but not in any large amounts. Perhaps I'll start incorporating more into my diet.

              I recently purchased a coconut vinegar and that coconut aminos soy-sauce alternative. Good and very interesting stuff.

                I've used coconut husk charcoal a few times and coconut coir for starting seeds for several years. Pretty sure the fronds were used as roofing material. In Mexico they make good quality hand made hats from the leaves. The best aloha shirts have coconut shell buttons. I used to have a door mat made from coconut fiber. The shell cut in half makes a fine one size fits all bra.

                  Essentially none of the foods we now eat are the same as those we ate before the agricultural revolution. After thousands of years of artificial selection of our crops and livestock, it would be insane to stick to only the foods Grok likely would have eaten. Best to do the closest reasonable approximation: lots of meat and veggies, some eggs, nuts, seeds, and fruit. Don't sweat the details; there be the Devil.
