    Coconut oil is evil...

    Shop Now
    So, y'all have been going on how great coconut oil is for the gut and yadda yadda yadda. So I manned (?womaned?) up and downed a spoonful before breakfast.

    It was only a teaspoon and I've been sick to my stomach all day.

    So, is there a special way to take coconut oil? Or is this stuff only for the hard core tough primal peeps cause man, its been a long day.

    I've found that when I eat too much protein, or too much fat, I have to balance it out with a tiny bit of carbs. I got really nauseous after egg white & bacon yesterday. Had 1/4 cup berries and felt MUCH better.

    I get nauseaus if I eat coconut oil in the morning by itself. I usually cook eggs in it in the morning.

    I think you should try to work it into your diet by using it to cook with...I've been using the stuff for months and I've never downed a shot of it. I think it's great for cook--not so great for shooting. Also, I have a very sensitive stomach and it doesn't appear to bother me at all....maybe it was something else you ate in the morning that got that tummy so upset. Just a thought...
    Cheers to LIFE!--Bree

    Technically it's whatever the coconut killed that's the evil one.

    I too felt horrible sick to my stomach after eating coconut oil. I think I need something in my stomach before haveng any, which I find hard to do since I put a teaspoon into coffee now.. and usually have my coffee before eating anything. What to do.. what to do...

    oh, well there's my first mistake. I thought you had to take it straight to get all the super good stuff, and cooking with it was just for the fat.

    Stabby, I am willing to suffer if thats it. Die bad stuff die!!

    You need to ease into coconut oil. It's anti-viral, so if you have anything growing inside you, it could cause discomfort. It's also one of the only sources of lauric acid, and it's 50% lauric acid at that. You may not be used to digesting it.

    I would recommend easing into coconut oil. Do this by incorporating coconut milk into things. A great little shake is to take a cup and a half of unsweetened almond milk, add 4 tablespoons of coconut milk from a can and a cinnamon stick. Let it sit in the fridge for a little to marinate and it makes a great little dessert drink. Start adding coconut milk to chicken. Cook your beef and eggs in coconut oil. After a little while, you'll be able to stomach coconut oil. I can take entire tablespoons with ease and I always clean the chunks off the spoon with my tongue after I'm done adding it to things. Hell, I drank a whole can of coconut milk with dinner on Tuesday. You'll get used to it. It'll just take a little while.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
