Personally I wouldn't drink an entire can of Coconut Milk, I surely don't need all that fat. Consider that maybe Crossfit is too much exercise for you if it and Paleo is causing weight loss beyond what you consider healthy for you. I think a... (more)

Seeing that animal fats like tallow and Lard are fairly nutrient poor(but still better than any plant based oil, unrefined or not), how much of them would be too much in a day for someone eating about 200 carbs per day

It's not how much cooking fat, it is how much gets taken in to what you eat. I run a sample of a days meal through paleotracker or cron o meter to see my % of fat, protein & carbs. I try to adjust accordingly.

It's possible that you aren't eating enough fat and your body is craving shredded coconut and nuts because they are primarily made up of fat. Try eating other fat sources but be generous with the serving - avocados, coconut oil, butter, olive... (more)

Hi all, I touched on this question in a previous thread, but I think my opening post was far too long-winded for people to bother with - which is fair enough :) In case you want some background info/my daily diet, see -... (more)
