Have you totalled up the number of calories you are eating each day? Including the chocolate candies and snacking while cooking?

Its entirely possible that you are simply eating more calories than you burn each day, and if you were to reduce the calories, you would lose weight.

Melt some Coconut oil (4T), then add unsweetened cocoa powder (2T), artificial sweetener of some kind (1T), and almond butter (1T) (or peanut butter or hazelnut or coconut cream or slightly ground up coffee beans).

Spread on a plate covered with plastic wrap and freeze for a half hour if you can leave it alone that long.

The more of this I eat, the faster the weight loss goes.

Sounds great with almond butter!! I have just made it plain so far. I didn't really think of adding the butters of anything else...but WOW that sounds awesome!! Coffee beans, too...I am going to have fun.

I think it would be OK. If you are worried about it, maybe you could put the cream in a little jar and wrap it with a dish towel or if you have a foam-lined anything and tuck it in your bag. Then add it to your hot coffee later. You would be surprised how well a dish towel keeps things cold when wrapped well.
This is a great idea, thanks so much ...I'm even considering dry ice.

Great idea, bent!!! DS broke mine, so I have to go look and buy one. I can just fix my coffee in the morning and drag the whole thing to work in the thermos, with the HWC already in.

Lynne, just made the coconut bark with 1 T of organic natural peanut butter. (Had it in th house for DS's protein bars ). OMG. Too good. And this will help me lose weight? How much of it do you eat at one time. I could eat the whole thing. Probably not good.

Well, for me, and your mileage may vary, the more I eat of that, the less of other things I want. And the higher the percentage of fat (particularly CO) in my day's food, the less calories matter. For me. So I eat the whole thing.

well, I ate about a third of it. I have never tried CO before and didn't want to overwhelm my tummy. Did feel very slightly nauseated. Have to work up to it , I guess. Gave DS a couple of pieces, put the rest in the freezer. Will try some more today. Thanks!

Meal 2: meatloaf with Kerrygold butter, 1 cup spinach salad (or 1/2 cup califlower or 1 cup romaine), a blended ice shake with unsweetened almond milk, coconut cream, instant coffee. If really hungry, I may add a scoop of whey powder, but this is not "paleo" (I have noticed Mark Sisson of Primal Blueprint sells whey powder, though--it can stop you in your tracks from overeating, it is very filling)

snack: decaf coffee with a cinnamon stick and coconut cream (regular cream is fine)

drinks: cinnamon stick in hot water

KT how much cream do you add to your coffee and tea

i finally found some of that kerrygold butter, and wow is that stuff good, i found myself cutting off a slice and just let it melt in my mouth---so much better that just regular butter--but habit forming for me---so i didn't pick any up this last shopping go round---didn't trust myself

There isn't a magic formula, it just depends on what I've eaten and how hungry I am.

If it's breakfast, 3 tablespoons or so, then I may have another tablespoon in coffee when I get to work.

I get the kerrygold butter from Trader Joe's. It's in a gold wrapper (I think silver is unsalted).
