Like Jake mentioned above, where did you get the information? When you refer to eating additional carbs, are you talking about "cheat days" or something similar?

So, I just broke my arm, and was wondering, is there anything that I should eat more of specifically that would help it heal faster? I was just planning on eating a bunch of marrow, organs, and bone broth for the next few weeks.

As everyone's said, you're undereating. This causes several problems including that your thyroid will produce more rT3, rT4 than T3 and T4 which will screw up your metabolism and energy levels further. This in turn will cause adrenal signalling... (more)

70% of your calories being completely void of nutrition? Does not sound like a good plan.

Do not use protein for energy. Simple. Eat fat or carbohydrate for energy. Egg whites and chicken breast was a bolus of protein, with little energy. You simply were undereating.

Correlation does not equal causation; two things happening at the same time doesn't mean one caused the other. It might not have anything to do with your diet at all.

If there is enough demand for coconut oil, they will slash and burn vast acreage to grow it, too. Palm oil is just used in more things, so it needs more land. There is no truly sustainable anything when we demand more and more.
