    I took MCT oil for almost two weeks and never had any ill effects. I assumed that refined coconut oil would be a good addition to the mix so had a T for my afternoon shot. Went with a tablespoon cause hey, it is just like MCT oil right? Unfortunate for me the cramps and cleanse hit me when I was in the middle of a run and had to duck off in the woods. I decided just to give up the SLD until I am done with my 1/2 marathon training runs.

    Good thing you were in the woods Those CO cleanses don't take "not right now" for an answer

    I should know the answer to this but I don't! I know about the 1 hr eating window before and after, but is there also a 1 hr smell window? Should I be not smelling anything for an hour after drinking the oil? D'oh!

    Smells are generally no problem. It's more about the taste/scent receptors in the back of your throat/nasal passages that give flavours their complexity, as separate from tongue-mediated basic tastes like sweet, salty, etc.

    Thanks, marthat. I was afraid to make dinner ;P This is actually the first day I'm able to work in 2 shots of oil so I'm trying to do it right!

Because of the oil shots, having leaner protein choices might be a better idea if your tummy gets in the evacuation mode. Other than that, yep, everyone is super different.
    Hi,
    I rarely eat fruit. If i do, its generally berries. None since taking the oil. I don't add much fat except full fat, plain organic yogurt, whatever fat is in carnitas etc. when I have a salad, I have a little EVOO and lemon on it.

    Yesterday I ate
    B. cup of organic plain yogurt, decaf with 1t cream
    L. Cobb salad w lemon juice not dressing
    D. BAS 4oz salmon filet, 2oz roasted Yukon gold potato, 4oz red wine, 1square 82% organic dark chocolate

    I will take my oil later today when I can stay home after my pedi.

    Well I thought I'd ease into it and see how my digestive system handled it. So the past 2 days I only did one dose in the morning (using CO). Day 1 - digestive craziness, LOL, horrible gas and some cleansing. Day 2 - I took the dose with probiotics and no trouble at all!! yay! So I'll continue that way. Today I've taken my morning dose and will add a 2nd one later in the day. No weight change yet but I did notice yesterday that both lunch and dinner I couldn't finish. And I had normal portions on my plate that I eat all the time. I finished lunch but felt overstuffed and so at dinner I just stopped eating at the full point and I had about 1/3 of my meal left. Very interesting! Hopefully I'll see the weight start changing this week now that I'll be on 2 doses.

    Is MCT oil superior for this? I'm heading to sprouts today so I may just pick up a small bottle. I am only using CO because I had it on hand.

    I was a little disturbed that I had gained a couple of pounds back so I added an extra tsp of MCT oil and within 2 days had a whoosh and dropped -5.3 pounds :O I am now officially the lowest weight I have been in months! Please can this be my new norm?

    On a side note the first day that I tried the MCT I had the worst stomach cramps and bathroom urgency. So I skipped a day and went back into taking 2 small tsps rather than a T at a time. Then I started adding 1 extra tsp later in the day. I cannot believe how it works for AS! Amazeballs!

    I have stopped taking any oil unless it's a work day. If I take it everyday, I cannot get hungry enough to eat a healthy amount of food. Yeah, I'm 100 lbs overweight, regardless, eating 800 cals a day just ain't right.
    The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

    What the heck are you guys doing? Or rather, what am I not doing right? I wish that the oil shots would curb my hunger that much!
