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)

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.

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)

Tess, Do you have any Asians markets near you? I found some coconut milk in the frozen food case at an Asian market near me. It came in a plastic bag and the only ingredient was coconut milk and no other additives. It was 2.19 for this item. See... (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)

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)

I think you're right that the coconut fat is good for you. i do not like to buy coconut products that have the good fats removed. We use coconut cream very rarely since it has so much sugar in it. Since I just looked at the label, I realize we... (more)

ApfelBaum, were you actually hungry when you ate the coconut cream? Eating before you are hungry can sometimes cause problems.

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)
