Probably the fat. Coconut oil is very well known for a laxative effect if consumed in 'large' amounts, which can be as little as a TBSP.

Is your version of paleo very low carb? I found I had the same problem but adding back potatoes, white rice and other none gluten carbs pretty much resolved the issue. VLC is not for everyone.

Coconut oil is ~130 calories a tablespoon. The item you linked to is 3 softgels per serving, and 25 calories from fat, per serving. So, 25 / 130 = .19, round up to .20 or 1/5 for ease sake. That's one-fifth of tablespoon per serving, or 3/15 of a... (more)

The answer is that too much fat too quickly causes steatorrhea Fiber has very little to do with it. You could have a higher fiber, low (available) carb diet - i.e. a ton of broccoli, and very high fat and still have loose stools. (more)
