Just curious... why does heavy cream mix readily with coffee but coconut oil does not? Because the fat in cream consists of microscopic globules inside membranes. These globules are manufactured by breast tissue when the milk is made. ... (more)

Stopping your binging for 2 weeks and keeping carbs low will really help to shift your body's fuel desires. Fat rocks, just make sure that it's grass fed or pastured fat so that you don't get the bad stuff.
