I'm looking for more of the science on how this works. I've read a lot about the dreaded gluten effects on the body and am pretty familiar with the dangers of sugar, but want more info on the fat issue. I have just found that eating a lot of... (more)

Ketosis is the word you're looking for and is a form of selective starvation where the body is forced to convert fat stores (or consumed fat) to energy instead of carbs. Using fat stores for energy is more energy intensive than is consuming... (more)

It's not easy to get all that Paleo goodness if you're not either rich or live in the country. Shortly after discovering coconut cream, it's become a dietary staple. I usually have 1/2 - 1 full can of Trader Joe's coconut cream per day. What,... (more)

The mentioned criticism from Matt and Sabertooth is true, but I still think it can be ok. A paleo diet rich in coconut cream/oil sure is a lot better than SAD. You could try to avoid nutrient deficiency by adding very nutrient dense foods like... (more)

What are your recommendations for thick coconut cream or milk? I feel like as soon as I start to love a brand, it becomes extremely low quality. I used to buy Native Forest coconut milk in the cans and skim off the cream and use that in tea. The... (more)

I make my own coconut milk, it always separates. Coconut milk that doesn't separate often uses a stabilizer or has been strained to the point of not having much oil (or your home is warm enough to keep everything liquid) It's fairly easy to make... (more)

Hi I just bought a block of creamed coconut block yesterday, and it tasted really sweet when I bit into a chunk of it. The ingredients list says 100% coconut - so I was wondering if it might be safe to consume? I've been on Paleo for 4 weeks now,... (more)

It's exactly the same stuff as "coconut butter" in a vacuum sealed brick instead of a jar. (And about half the price!)It has a natural sweetness to it that you can enjoy because your taste buds are no longer hostage to overly sweetened commercial... (more)

This is the stuff I get. If you want to turn it into milk just mix it up with hot water, and it can last a few days in the fridge. But I found another thing you could do with it. Melt some extra virgin coconut oil and mix it up with this... (more)

I've read a few places that coconut oil increases metabolism and helps with hypothyroid symptoms. So far, I can't find coconut oil here that doesn't taste like plastic. Does coconut cream have the same impact on metabolism that coconut oil... (more)

Yes, I would imagine that coconut cream would have a similar effect (if there is a measurable effect of course). Have you considered buying coconut oil online? Regarding the amount of fat loss with / without CO, I don't think relying on something... (more)

I got myself 100% coconut cream from Renuka. I ate it pure, about 30g and now I feel sickness in my stomach, so I'm wondering, how do you eat it ?

archaea 0 · April 03, 2010 at 5:48 PM

The sickness you feel could be because you are not used to eating coconut products, and 30g of concentrated coconut can be a lot if it's the first time you've tried it. A similar thing happened to me the first time I had coconut milk (half a can... (more)

Hi! Well, I love fat. :3 If i eat too much fat, I'll know it because I get bloated and my stomach might hurt a tad. Usually I tend to eat coconut milk/cream. This morning I woke up Went in the fridge and saw the lovely jar of coconut cream. I... (more)

I wouldn't assume that fat absorption in general is impaired based on an experience with a processed version of an evolutionarily novel fat source. Eat a ribeye steak and report back.

Eat when hungry, don't force it. Also, the only thing you need to track in a low-carb gig is protein. You have body fat and dietary fat is really easy to eat massive amounts of. Carbs are taken care of just by not eating starches, you won't... (more)

I was thinking that this might make a better substitute for canned coconut milk than fresh coconut milk, which is known to be thinner, but the ingredients don't list any fat, which makes me suspicious. What do you all think? Is it just that the... (more)

Do you mean the coconut creamer? http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/product.php?p=so_delicious_creamer_original It's got too much junk in it for my tastes. And yes, a coconut based product with no fat tips off warning flags in my mind. (more)

I am new to paleo, and am quite confused about wether to use the whole tin of cream or milk, or just the solid part and not the liquid. I made soup, and when I bended it the cream separated, but when I reheated in pot on stove it was fine. But... (more)

Up to you. If you want thick cream, pour off the water and use it elsewhere. If you want a texture more like milk, stir them together.
