PHEW that coconut oil is no joke!

Kinda having a love hate relationship with it. Today is the first day I tried it. Have spent most of the day "going". Which is good. No more Psyllium hush needed.

After I have been off CO for while, the first day or so of adding it back in is awful. It's almost like a detox. I am now consuming 2-3tbsp per day with no adverse effects.

I had a strong reaction to 1 tsp of co when I first started using it and it happened within ah hour of so of consuming it. I now have upwards of 2 tbsp daily but I needed to be very slow with the amount to begin with!

Same thing happened to me at first. Your body will get use to it, and you will stop "going" so much. lol.
But it does keep me regular now which is a good thing.

It no longer has that effect - that is why I can consume as much as I want but it is because my system has become adjusted to digesting medium chain triglycerides (mct). I wonder if magnesium supplements would help.

I have also read that adding more fiber can further compound the problem.

I've been putting 1 Tbsp of CO in my second morning cup of coffee (second of more cups lately, then today added a tsp before my lunch and dinner meals straight off the spoon. So far so good.

Friday night I was a little concerned about my constipation. So, i took a protein shake with 2 TBSP of CO. Next morning, I went to the bathroom. It seems to work for me.

Recently found a place that has gallon jugs on coconut oil for $15. Passed through that town today. They were closed but they still have them so I'm going to pick up a couple more when I go through there in a couple weeks. Can make lotsa fat bombs.

This sounds similar to my experience last night... I ate a whole batch of flax crackers before my friend told me that I'd probably be on the can all day today. :/

Gosh, I too wish it had that effect on me. It doesn't seem to make a difference either way.

CO doesn't seem to have any effect on me. Flax however is another story. When I am having a bit of regularity problems, I just bake up about a cup full into flax crackers and the problem goes away. Problem is I have grown to really like them and it is hard to stop at the "proper dosage".

I have no issues with flax (I bake the soaked seeds into crackers) nor with CO or MCT oil (although I followed advice to introduce the latter gradually). I am switching to a chelated magnesium, though, because it can do a number on me.
