      It is definitely the testosterone or other hormones. Exercise some free will! Just because you are ultra-manly doesn't mean you have to be a dick.

      The better and more sexually potent I feel the more of a jerk I can potentially (but not necessarily) be, that's life! Thank you, mother nature!

        But that might make you even more likely to punch her in the face.

          I guess we who are new to the testosterone rush need some advice on how to deal with it.

              In the beginning, I had to do a lot of running to burn off my new aggression. I'm handling it better now, and channeling it into higher productivity. Definitely less likely to take crap now - it hasn't gotten me in trouble yet, but it probably helps that I'm polite and smile when I'm telling people off.

                  I doubt that the coconut oil alone is responsible but Primal as a whole lifestyle definitely could be. My own subjective n=1 is that, whatever I am feeling, on PB I just seem to feel it more intensely. I don't think this is me changing for the worse. I just think that a general lack of health in the body puts you out of touch with your feelings. Primal puts you back to where you should be, it can just be a little disconcerting at first. Like if you value your paycheck, it is probably not a good idea to tell your boss what a dickhead he is being. The urge to do so though just means you are a fully aware human. And he is a dickhead.

                    Diet high in saturated fat and low in PUFA = higher testosterone. This is most likely what you're feeling if coconut oil is the big recent change.
                    Good n-3/n-6 ratio = less depression.
                    Gluten-free diet = no exorphins mucking up your motivational system = more sensitive to emotional and social cues. (Unproven but seems likely.)
                    Probably several more things.

                    That's one of the themes of Eat Like A Predator: your mental health and toughness are strongly related to your physical health and toughness.
