thanks. I currently take MCT, which is the good stuff that coconut oil is prized for but easier to mix into my coffee. I use coconut oil to cook with.
that is actually very similar to the SLD, which I also tried for a few months with no success.
I have an issue with finding BMR, I don't actually think it is possible to know it without scientifically testing for it (I believe it requires exercising in a closed room and them checking oxygen used among other things). So I am trying to get to a place where I can eat food (chugging 6T of coconut oil doesn't count to me) listen to my body, and let it figure out how to lose weight. I think something is "broken" and when I figure out how to fix it that the weight will just go away.
