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.

I've recently started paleo. I can't eat eggs scrambled with a bit of coconut oil but I can eat them cooked into paleo waffles. Why? Mt stomach was never sick prior to changes my eating habits slowly over the past 7 months.

A massive load of dark green leaves works for me. Not sure if it's anti-bacterial/fungal or just alkalising, but it's generally the answer. Carrot juice is good too. And the coconut is a good tip.

Possibly mental, you may also be craving certain minerals and/or vitamins. Grab a 90% dark chocolate bar and eat it. Lots of good fats, very little sugar. See if this helps to quench the cravings.
