    Coconut Cream made me sick?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I warmed and mixed 2 Tbs of Tropical Traditions coconut cream (no sugar added, right) with 6 squares (only about 7 carb grams) of Green and Blacks 85% chocolate last night and then cooled it and ate it. I felt awful this morning, sick to my stomach. I eat the chocolate several times a week but this is the first time with the coconut. I see the ingredients is just coconut so do you think it was just too much oil in one sitting? Anyone else use coconut cream?

    I just finished eating a couple of "fat bombs" with a cup of coffee. (Tropical Traditions coconut cream concentrate blended with some extra blobs of straight coconut oil and some vanilla extract, then frozen in ice-cube trays.) It didn't make me sick when I started eating them, but I'm used to eating lots of coconut oil and coconut milk. You might want to start with a smaller quantity.

    Do you eat coconut in other ways? Some of us have trouble with it in various forms. Actually, I seem to have sensitised myself! Bear this in mind, but def try some smaller uantities first

    It is very high in fiber so it can be harsh. Also, I just got sick from raw cocoa powder because it has mold in it sometimes and is also super high in fiber.

    I have had problems with the coconut water straight out of a fresh coconut. It sent both the hubby and me to the bathroom more than once. It was not a young green coconut. I am wondering if we would have heated the liquid first if we would have had the problems.

    Also bear in mind that coconut oil is a laxative. If you don't eat a lot of coconut products (particularly high-fat ones) regularly, it might take a little bit to get used to them.

    i can't eat coconut cream or milk. it makes me feel like throwing up. in fact, just thinking about eating it makes me want to throw up. i don't think i like the coconut flavor or something.

    I haven't gotten to the feel like throwing up stage, but I have noticed this too. What surprised me is that I like the flavor of coconut oil. But using coconut milk did engage a bit of a "yuck" response. I wonder why...

    Chocolate contains theobromine which can be poisonous in large quantities (some people can be more sensitive than others):

    I'm glad you posted this. On two different occassions in the last month, during the day at work I wasn't passing any gas or going to the bathroom, but I felt like I really needed to. I felt terrible. The only common denominator I could come up with was I had eaten some ice cream made with coconut milk from Whole Foods the night before on each occassion. As good as it was, it definitely wasn't worth the price I paid the next day!
