    What the hell is it with Coconut oil and effing Diarrhea?

    Every time I cook with it, I get a whacking great heat pulse and then everything in me goes whoosh out me bum. Is this normal? Do I need to stop using it or will I get used to it? whats happening to cause this?

    you should ease into using coconut oil. too much too soon, leaves you too soon lol. i think people start with a tablespoon once or twice a day, and go from there. are you using alot?

    In use a half table spoon in the pan to make breakfast and a tablespoon in my coffee (with a tablespoon of butter) once in a while. I dont use much more than that.

    That's a fine indication that you are eating too much of it. Listen to your body. You don't need to eat shit tons of coconut oil, ever.

    Yes, back off on the amount.
    But keep the effect in mind, if you ever want the 'whoosh'.

    Is it EVERY time you eat coconut oil, or is it just breakfast? Coffee alone has that effect on some people. Coffee + 2tbs fat = instant cleanout.

    I prefer to fry breakfast in butter or bacon fat.

    I wonder why I have to be so backwards about everything. I think maybe the first time I ever had it, it had that effect. And I could use that effect now but it just doesnt happen that way. And I have it almost every. single. morning. uuggh

    I LOVE the whoosh. I drink a box of coconut milk (in a fasted state, turns it into a ketogenic fat-fast) every morning to get my hands hot for the morning blood draws at the hospital. But I'm a rush junkie, anyway.

    However, if I cut my tallow with coconut oil 50/50 to cook dinner in, I do not get any rush at all. Maybe try combining it with other fats or foods?
