Hah, a good can of coconut milk is quite a surprise isn't it? I don't know why, but when I was in Virginia, the Thai Kitchen coconut creme I would buy at Whole Foods was soooo smooth, creamy and delicious. I would put a little bit of stevia in it and call it a dessert ... or ... when it was a really hard day and I didn't feel like cooking anything, I would just make a can my dinner. It hardly has any carbs, but I don't think that means the calories should be completely discounted if you've been sitting around studying and working all day either. I continued losing weight during that time, though, so I'm still not sure if it was a bad habit or a good habit yet. Unfortunately, I'm back in California, and for some reason, none of the coconut milk brands have as good a texture! Not even Thai Kitchen. Also, I don't know if you've researched Candida or yeast overgrowth in the intestines, but coconut products are supposed to help you fight the overgrowth. All in all, I don't think eating coconut milk on its own is the dirtiest of deeds. It's so fattening, it's hard to overeat it.
