    Thanks. Interesting! I might try some walnut oil. IDT that has much taste. I can't stand the taste of "good" coconut oil. The only coconut oil I can remotely tolerate is the stuff they sell at Walmart. That's a first for me - to prefer something that is cheaper rather than the most expensive on the market. Ha ha.

    Happy New Year and thanks for sharing and for handling so many "how dare you" think outside the box replies with so much grace!

    Refined coconut oil has no taste. Its usually solid at room temp so just take a spoonful and wash it down with some water.

    The walnut oil I have is very nutty. Definitely has a taste.

    What about doing this with grass-fed beef tallow? I have been reading a lot lately about Omega 6 and Omega 3 and I really think I need more Omega 3. There's quite a bit of research out there showing how vegetable oils are probably the root of many of our obesity/diabetes/heart disease problems.

    I bought some grass-fed tallow the other day to try to increase my input of O3. I think I've been getting too much O6 lately. My feet hurt again like they did before I found this way of eating. I suppose I could take it as a supplement. It's hard so I could just cut off a chunk and swallow whole like a big horse pill. No taste at all.

    The biggest difficulty I have is just eating less. I'm a very hungry person. Always have been.

    He advocates using "light olive oil" in this diet to which I have but one complaint...

    "Light" olive oil is the type that is most often adulterated with shit like soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil, ect. No flavor in "light" olive oil? Then you'll never know it's been messed with.

    To some, that tastes good. I think the whole point of it is to purposely be flavorless. Get calories in which will blunt your hunger later when you go for a meal but doesn't trigger the reward reaction in your brain because it has no discernible taste.

I ONLY counted food, not the extra calories from coconut oil. My tablespoons are pretty rounded (I just grab a hunk out of the jar), so I was estimating an extra 300 calories per day of coconut oil, which brings my actual daily totals up to 1300-1400 cals per day.
    THat's interesting. I find that when diets increase in fat a bit (this is just a general observation) the overall calories decrease. It was interesting to see myself drop from 2000-2200 before primal, to 16-1800 on primal, and now 15-1700 on the IF. So, to an extent, I'm not at all surprised if you would be right around there considering where your restriction was last (12-1500 calories which you mentioned somewhere!).

    I'm sure that's true for some people, but I absolutely don't think it's the case for me. I've spent years playing around with macros and caloric amounts. I could restrict to 1100 cal/day (miserably, I might add), or I could eat 2500 cal/day; nothing changed my setpoint.

    I also don't think it's specifically the fat that's doing it. Dr. Roberts did it with sugar water and got the same results. Other people have experimented with just eating a meal a day with their nose clipped to block out flavor, and also had success. It's something to do with extra energy that is not associated with flavor (and therefore reward) in the brain. Like I've said, I don't exactly understand the mechanism behind it, and I'd recommend that you read the book if you're curious.
    It's nigh-on impossible to find most of thse books here, but I'm going to look at the blogs when I have a bit more time to do so. Sounds like an interesting mechanism, anyway.


    My exact movement practice is:
    MWF: Crossfit
    T/Th: Lifting class (Crossfit-affiliated, and we do some metcons, but it's mostly heavy lifting)
    2-3 times a week, whenever I have the time to go: Hot vinyasa
    Daily, in my home: 45-60min yoga practice
    Daily, outside: Walking my dogs 30 min twice a day
    A few times a month when I get the hankering: 10x10sec sprints in the park

    Looking at that, it seems like a lot, but I'm a yoga teacher and live my life in gyms and studios, so it's just my lifestyle.
    Nah, I'm the same. Dh and I were chatting about the "greasing the groove" process -- wherein it's not too much volume to do volume, particularly of body weight. Yoga does that well. I do 45-60 mins per day vinyasa, though I rarely take classes simply due to time, and i'm now doing some body-weight stuff daily (perhaps 6 days?) which is designed to help rehab some specific things in my shoulder that my yoga work isn't getting to that easily, and that's doing the same sort of thing. I'll try to find an article about it, but it works similarly to crossfit (in a way).

    Then there's also the regular life-walking that I do (probably about an hour a day), and then the play swimming that I do 2-4 days a week with my son -- I often do water sprints in there because it's a fun game (all three of us "race" each other, and it gets the boy really swimming), and this year, I'm adding in some skating (roller derby) at least once a week. Psyched about that.

    So, that's fun stuff. It doesn't have to be PB to work, you know?

    I do this because I need the extra calories. Quite tasty, in fact, but I love coconuts.
