is creamed coconut (like this one: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Lets-Do-Organic-Creamed-Coconut/dp/B00113ZZ5U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358274075&sr=8-1&keywords=coconut+cream]Let's Do Organic Creamed Coconut, 7-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6): Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food[/url]) the same as coconut butter (like this one: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Artisana-100%25-Organic-Coconut-Butter/dp/B000WV153I/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358274075&sr=8-2&keywords=coconut+cream]Artisana 100% Organic Raw Coconut Butter -- 16 oz: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food[/url])
If it is, then I have some at home already. My question, does coconut BUTTER have to be refrigerated like creamed coconut?
No, coconut butter is more like coconut oil... but with WAY more coconut flavor.
***EDIT: I lied! It seems there are two kinds of creamed coconut and the one you posted is the same as coconut butter.
Coconut butter, creamed coconut, and coconut manna are all pretty much the same thing.
I was confusing the creamed coconut with another sweetened coconut milk product that comes in a can. Derp
Anyway... It's basically dried coconut meat, with no water left in it, ground into a fine paste. So just the oil is left in it.
I generally have the Coconut Manna version on hand... I think they are close to the same. Here is a little thing that explains.

Cori.. I have been thinking about it.. you need a webcam for your aquarium I can look at to de-stress during the day!
The reason I ask is b/c Mark posted a blog showing that the two are different. (Yes, he also talks about coconut cream, which IS different (it comes from a can)).
The creamed coconut I linked is what I can buy here at home for less than $3, but is supposed to be refrigerated between uses. The coconut butter I posted says refrigeration is not recommended, thus my confusion. Mark says creamed coconut is just the meat... [URL="http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-wonderful-world-of-coconut-products/#axzz2I4Q5jwgf"]here[/URL]. I guess the difference is texture b/c of the oil content??
Creamed coconut, he says, has a higher fat content (by 4 grams). 2 tbsp = 1 oz according to Google.

You know... one of these days!
Maybe when I set up a the new tank and rebuild the old one as a biotope I'll set up cameras and be all techie and cool.
Right now Spike (the little guy with the unicorn horn) is begging for food like the piglet he is.
My anemone... (Oh wow I just remembered I managed ot get a pic of that uploaded) is fat and happy because I fed it some octopus tentacle last night...
And I need to get in there and get wet to do a little cleaning and put an Acan coral colony back upright because a big PITA turbo snail bulldozed it over sideways last night.
One clown fish(the big female) is snuggled up in the anemone, and the little male clown is making a fish taco of himself in the Duncan coral where he slides himself between the multiple heads and all you can see is his little face and tail peeking out... this happens because the female rules the roost and sometimes boots the little male from the bed. ;)
[QUOTE]Seaweed, go to the first post in this thread. There is an explanation on how to figure out macros. Once you have those then to get calories you multiply fat gram by 9, protein and carb grams by 4 then add them all together and that is your calories.
[/QUOTE] Thankyou =) i get about 1200 that way if i keep my fat grams at about double my protein grams. still carnivoring and onto day 8 so i am still having way too much protein. prob equal to the fat gs but still looking thinner every day. i was only originally going to carnivore for a week so will change it all this week. just difficult in the school hols when i have kids to feed. i kinda feel guilty giving them nachos when i am eating steak tartare. not that they would eat steak tartare anyways!
just as an fyi and for future reference, I posted the link to that article on getting fat for NK in our recipe group. I know it isn't a recipe but the question gets asked so often I thought it would be easier to find it there.
I am just slowly decreasing my protein grams, they were way high at first but pretty much in line most days now. Funny thing is I tried a plan in which I was trying high protein and had trouble hitting the mark! Go figure.
Mine comes out to 50g protein, 25g carbs, and 100g fat... My question is how do you get that much fat in your diet without accumulating more protein than you're supposed to have? I think since I started trying to eat primal, I've been eating a ton of protein, and I feel like I'm gaining weight....
Ha, posted before I saw where you said you posted a link to the fat vs. protein question.. sorry :) Where is the link you mention above?
