    What sort of coconut oil do you use? I don't get any allergic reactions from extra virgin, so I've just been using that because it's a lot cheaper at Trader Joe's. If there are some superior tasting coconut oils out there, I'm all for a change though.

    Get on Nutiva's website. They run some really good deals from time to time and typically send out an email once a week with a combo package. Last weeks was 1/2gal of EVCO and some coconut manna, hemp and chia seeds for like $50 or something, free shipping to boot.

    Thanks to everyone! I think I'll go with the butter first. I read that if one is doing the paleo and is still hungry it could possibly be from not eating enough fat.

    True that. Hunger isn't really an issue since bulletproof coffee and KerryGold.

    craving bread & processed carbs because you're not getting enough fat? did it ever occur to you that it's because you're not getting enough carbs? seems like less of a jump, to me.

    Good point. I'm on a lo CHO for health reasons and found it necessary to incl. in a bit more. In my case that was the key-more CHO that is, as opposed to even more fat.
