    I like to high heat sear a lot of meats in cast iron so I usually need just enough to make the bottom non-stick.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    My vote is "if it hurts, don't eat it." Or at least cut back until you have adapted. Scallops make me retch. I don't think it's because they're cleansing my system; I'm just not meant to eat them.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    when i first started eating it i got cramps for a week or so. they went away and now i have no problems. i do think it's an adaptation to lauric acid content. BUT as most said, if it doesn't work for you...don't bother.
    i would think that you would react the least to coconut oil (coconut cream/milk often have guar gum which irritates my gut). remember, every body is different so listen to yours, not everyone elses!

    Stick with macadamia nut oil for cooking instead!
