Yop - listen to your body. Sometimes your body just needs a little help, though. Last month, when I had a tougher time digesting protein, I realized I could benefit from HCl (hydrochloric acid betain with pepsin) and I really have. I used to have to wait a long time to do any exercise after eating, but after taking HCl, I was normal. I ate lunch mid-hike and then didn't have trouble doing a bunch of uphill climbing afterward. I sometimes worry about the coconut as well, but it's a high-fat food and can fill you faster than most things.
