I don't really do the coconut flour stuff much- once in a while as a treat. I do have coconut milk in my coffee daily. I haven't yet bought coconut oil.
and other things made with coconut flour and/or almond flour? I love, love, love the coconut pancakes, but I don't want to eat them so often that it hampers any weight loss. Do you eat them daily, several times a week, once a week, once in a great while.....?
I make them always on the weekend. That's when I have my bacon also. My reason? I work on the weekdays so as soon as I get up, I get to work and have my quick primal breakfast there. Then on the weekends, during my slow morning leisure time, I treat myself and guest with a nice big fatty breakfast.
Retirement has afforded me the ultimate affluence, that of free time (Sahlins/Wells)
I do drink a lot of coconut milk..and I probably put in about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day..and I'm also addicted to Let's do Organic's creamed coconut bar thingie..but I keep that to a 1x a week treat because even though I don't count calories the calories even made my eyes bug out of my head when I read them lol..
as for coconut flour...hardly ever...I personally didnt even like it much..its a little mealy for me..Id rather just not have things made with any flour then with flour I don't like.
The pain of discipline or the pain of regret? You choose.
Oh look - I made a Journal.
once in ten weeks
I drink coconut milk nearly every day and cook with the oil once every week or so (I use it as lotion every day). Dried coconut is a snack twice a week or so.
Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
A nice glass of coconut milk with some whey protein in it is my quick breakfast that I use when I am in a rush. Also use coconut oil for most cooking, i am totally addicted to that sweet tinge it gives everything.
I plan on starting to increase muscle mass very soon (once bodyfat drops to about 9-10%) and will be using coconut milk as my primary intake of fat.
I never use alternative flours. I find that the foods made from them are easy to overeat and tend to cause cravings for more.
