I buy unsweetened coconut meat, shredded and add it to everything, pancakes (Paelo), salads, its yummy and has the right fat. I can't always stomach coconut oil but find this a really good substitute.

I hit athletic recovery problems in month 2 of VLC. My advice would be let the athletic performance slip if it needs to so you can maintain the diet and hit your short term weight goal. Sounds like you're in a good groove and compliance is... (more)
