Hello! I have been eating Artisana Coconut Butter daily for breakfast for about 2 years. I never really measure how much I use. I keep it cold and flake some off into my greek yogurt. I would estimate that it varies around 1-2 Tbsp. When I conusme... (more)

How do you "know" it has to do with the thyroid. Coconut butter and excessive sweating are not linked to thyroid disorders. Consider the possibility that your excessive sweating may be due to something else entirely and seek medical examination if... (more)

Just started going 100% paleo (I was pretty close before, eating peanut butter and not eating as much fat as I should before). In my efforts to go full tilt, I ate a heaping spoonful of Coconut oil on an empty stomach as an afternoon snack... (more)

A lot of coconut oil on an empty stomach -> guaranteed unhappy stomach for me (for a little while).

I swear by coconut oil. I cook everything with it and I am beginning to take a tablespoon of it every night before bed in hopes of it helping my metabolism and digestion. Because it's a MCFA, I hear that somehow your body uses it to burn fat... (more)

Do you have a lot of inches to lose? There's really no need to cut out fat. I would look at the carbohydrate or Omega-6 part of your diet first to determine the reason that you haven't lost the desired inches. Coconut oil can do nothing but good... (more)

I'm a coconut oil fiend who is bitterly disappointed that my favourite product has been pulled from the shelf. Ok, I really like the other oils too, but they are all very expensive and, well, I'm cheap. Sooo, I have resorted to investigating... (more)

Mate, just bite the bullet and buy the bloody coconut oil. The paleo way is about eating as natural as possible. NOT processing food even more. Stop being a tight arse!!!

I bet this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything. Okay, so I really fell off the Paleo wagon, REALLY BAD for a while, and now I am becoming insulin resistant again. I get hungry twice at night time, for example, even when I have a... (more)

I made coconut bark and my husband devoured it. Got the idea off another thread. It did have fruit in it but you could omit that along with the maple syrup. I eyeballed all the ratios, so you'll have to experiment. I melted coconut oil and... (more)

Hi, This may sound like a weird question but how do you guys take your daily 3+ tablespoons of coconut oil in front of others/at the office/in public? I wish I could take it throughout the day at the office after breakfast or lunch (to regulate... (more)

Your office co-workers will care what you are doing for about ten seconds or less. Once you get past that, they'll go back to preoccupation with themselves, and you'll be home free! Trust me: people really just don't care, past the novelty of... (more)

I ate too much fats at one sitting--now I feel sick to my stomach. I tried ginger ...any other suggestions? Would digestive enzymes help?

NZ kiwi fruit (aka Chinese Gooseberries) are acidic and if you eat a few they clean out your plumbing pronto. Young fresh ginger sliced thin on your tongue can help your taste buds feel cleansed. Drink water and herbal tea.

I think I may consume 3-4 tablespoons a day.

3+ tablespoons a day! Although I think it has reduced my hunger levels, which isn't a great thing for me.
