    What??? Not sure where I said this is not my cup of tea! I was suggesting to a couple of people an alternative instead of the mindless eating of chocolate they wrote about a couple of days ago.

    I had no idea my body was going to react differently to coconut oil as to macadamia or olive oil. I think I'll hold off on the coconut oil and maybe save it for cooking. It was entirely flavorless, though, compared with the other oils. I found that convenient.

    To finally stop the diarrhea I ended up eating some of my boyfriend's corn chips. Corn constipates me, so normally I avoid it. I think I'll eat a low fat diet today.

    Good for you, oceangrl! I will be there someday soon I hope.....not weighing. I used to weigh every day, ugh. Now I weigh myself on Sat or Sun, once a week, as a tool to determine if what I'm doing is working, so I can tweak. I wish I had thought to take measurements when I started primal in October, I would prefer to use that. But once a week has been working for me, it at least allows me to reassess. I think I might go to once monthly now. Like...the first day of every month. I feel much more primal and shangri la - adapted now so I think I can ditch the weekly weigh in

    Last night I couldn't stomach the idea of drinking the oil, which is why I had a no oil day. Now again today, I'm sitting here trying to will myself to take it. I may have to switch oils or take a few days off, I can't make myself drink it if I feel gaggy!

    Oh LV..I hate admitting this but I lost 84lbs on Medifast. Gross space food. I weighed daily. Crazy. After a lot of self talk..it no longer means anything. Measure now. It's not too late. :0)

    I bought a tub of coconut oil yesterday. Found it in an Asian specialist shop.

    I only eat once a day, normally around 8-9 pm.
    So getting a bit of fat might improve my metabolism ( it's been suggested that I'm not eating enough calories or fat. I do believe this is true now).I could read the whole thread of course, but I'm sure they are many differing opinions.

    What would be best for my situation?
    How much oil?
    How many times a day?
    What times a day?
    In what fashion?
    Advice welcome please.
    Thanks.
    FTM. I'm not biased, I hope everybody beats the mags!

    The idea is to drink one to two tbsp a day, the only restriction is to have no food at all an hour before drinking the oil and an hour after, so two hour window no food apart from water, and the oil after the first no food hour, nothing else.

    Some people have it once a day, others twice a day, you need to experiment and see what's best for you. You must not taste the flavour of the oil, so if it has a taste pinch your nose while drinking and follow it up with a glass of water immediately.

    Get the book if you can - but try it for a week or so then judge if its working better i.e. no hunger/appetite suppression working, then get the book. You can also do some reading on Seth's website (sethroberts.net)
    Good luck.

    I'll try it for a week, thanks.

    You must not taste the oil. Why? Because it's horrid or is there some science behind it?

    Yes there is a theory behind not associating calories with flavour, please do the reading on Seth's site and forum, lots of info there
