CO makes me hungry
It's the strangest thing. After I eat coconut oil I get hungry shortly after and I feel hypoglycemic. I tried fat bombs and cooked eggs with it. Has anyone else experienced this?

Not me but I have seen posts about that before. You might try MCT oil? I think it is kind of expensive though. Or just eat other good fats

I don't get hungry, but I do feel jittery and anxious after eating it.

I put a tbsp of CO in my coffee each morning with HWC and it keeps me full for 4-5 hours. I love it! I guess it's a YMMV thing......
When you think about quitting, stop and remember why you started!!!

Obviously, CO isn't 'working' for you.
There are plenty of other sources of healthy fats out there -- you don't NEED to eat this one. Particularly if it's doing you harm (in terms of appetite) instead of good.
For me, it's very much a "magic bullet", in terms of hunger, and I'm glad to have found it.
For you, it's obviously NOT! So stop taking it. (Know what? There's an eye-glasses prescription that works really amazingly well for my husband... I can't see thru it for anything. So I just don't use it.)

I get hungry, also so you are not alone here in thinking this is happening! Eggs do the same thing and if I did coconut and eggs, OMG!! Eating the paint off the walls in a matter of minutes!!
I still use it but wait until my evening tea/decaf coffee to use it. This way I'm off to bed and if I get hungry I'm sleeping through it.
I do like the benefits and this is why I use still!!
A man asked Gautama Buddha, "I want happiness." Buddha said, "First remove "I," that's Ego, then remove "want," that's Desire. See now you are left with only "Happiness.”
