coconut oil

Friday, August 31, 2018

yikes, this new ‘study’ from Harvard report, shook me! I have been doing coconut oil everyday for about a year, the whole ‘semi keto’ thing, I don’t eat anything that lists ‘sugar’ grams as more than 8, I have a minimum of cup of leafy greens at every meal, and read every word of nutritional labels like they are really good novels! I aim for 25+ grams of fiber a day, do a homemade green tea and chia seed drink everyday, blueberries nealy every day. Not really putting a dent in the 35 pounds I want to lose (I have already lost over 50) but I have a ton of energy, feel super fit, am wearing clothes that I haven’t been able to get into for over 20 years, and to be honest, after that report about coconut oil being poison, I panicked, stopped taking the oil. Now I feel my whole routine has been thrown off, I feel exhausted all the time, like I could take a nap about every 3 hours of the day. I wish there was a comprehensive way to find out what is right! I spent years not eating bananas, carrots, and peas. because they had ‘high sugar content’, but was glad to have them back on my food list. The same with the egg panic concerning high cholesterol, so it was rare to enjoy an egg, but was really happy to add them back in my life. There has to be some way to counter act these panic reports the media puts out without giving info on a well rounded school of thought and just focusing on alarm ringers!!!

    It's called "orthorexia", the fear of eating foods that may be harmful.

    I would further investigate also.

    I would further investigate information on coconut oil. One day they say it is bad for you and the next day it is ok.

    You can do it. It is strange how food articles give you warning signs and others state there is no concern.
