Coconut Oil making you hungry?

Soooo lately hubby and I have been drinking smoothies for breakfast, and being that for a while I wasn't using coconut oil I figured hey let me add it to our smoothies for some fat..
HOLY HUNGRY BATMAN! I just was always starving after doing this.. I take the oil away and im not so hungry... anyone else have this happen? I really want to start using the coconut oil again, but I don't like the feeling of always want to eat anything thats not human (my desk doesn't taste so good and its high carb lol)

How much protein is in your drink? If the protein is too low, it may be that? I haven't experienced more hunger when I started adding CO. But there are 25gms of protein in my drink.

Perhaps the Coconut oil is getting your metabolism revved up...try listening to your body's signals and maybe eating a HB Egg or a portion of Almonds. See what happens?

I have that problem when coconut oil is mixed w/ something sweet. I now mix it by the tablespoon w/ peanut butter & cocoa & leave out the sweetener & either chill it on wax paper just eat it w/ a spoon. I had to quit making bark as I wanted to eat the whole batch at once & everything else edible in the house.

I had that exact problem when I made my smoothie, too. It's the recipe from the Primal Blueprint cookbook with coconut oil, coconut milk, etc. It did not sustain me. Yummy, tho! LOL!

Hmmm...maybe some added fiber, like a TB of ground flax seed? Good luck!

I find the same thing with coconut oil. Even a smoothie of any kind does not make me feel full for long. Basically I need to eat eggs, meat, cheese to feel full for any length of time. So, knowing how nutritious the CO is, I fry my eggs and meat in it....

Yeah, coconut oil definitely doesn't stave off hunger in fact I end up eating more over the day. I don't blame co, I find if I eat too much fat in any meal I am hungrier sooner. Not the norm but then I would be "them".

I stopped trying to incorporate it on a daily basis just for that very reason - Made me ravenously hungry. I do sometimes make LC sweet treats that call for it ( rarely), and I tend to overdo the sweets and now I'm thinking maybe that's why. I just thought it was because having something sweet brought up old habits. Hmmm...

Coconut oil is high in fat and some of us (me) have found that eating high fat makes us (me) hungrier.

This is SO true for me!!!

I bought some coconut oil over the weekend (because it's all I read about here on the boards - lol) and now I'm trying to determine what the heck to do with the stuff.

Leave it to me to just go out and purchase something and not have a real use for it other than 'reading' about it!!! :blush: Suggestions please?

Lisa, it's the healthiest oil to cook with, like frying your LC foods. Steak, onions, mushrooms, omelette etc. Also does wonders to put it on your skin every morning.

Just the opposite for me. It makes me feel very very full. 1 TBSP of coconut oil bark and I'm good for hours.

Seems there are quite a few of us here who don't lose our appetite by eating high(er) fat.

The basic recipe is this:
1/4 cup coconut oil
Cocoa powder to taste (some like dark chocolate. I use a little less than 1 TBSP)
Sweetener to taste (most use splenda, I use stevia)

If your CO is solid, nuke it a few seconds. You need it liquid, but not hot. Mix in cocoa powder to taste and a bit of sweetener. I add a few drops stevia, taste and repeat. Then you freeze it. Pour it into a plastic bowl so that it's thin. Once frozen you can break it up.

Now, I measure my portions out. I take mini muffin tins and cups and put 1 TBSP into each cup. Then freeze. That way I know how much I'm eating at one.

You can add nuts, coconut, PB. Whatever you like to make a treat. My favorite it to put a few SALTED peanuts in the bottom of the muffin cup then pour the bark mix over. Kills the sweet/salty cravings. Salted pecans are also wonderful.

If you want fudge you can use the solid coconut oil and a bit of cream cheese.
