I am thinking that I need more fat too. So I'm trialing coconut oil (beneficial) and flaxseed oil (diamond).

Sometimes after a meal, I feel really unsatisfied (even one with olive oil dressing). . . until I have a teaspoon of coconut oil or butter.

Funny about the brain thing - I am studying as well. Maybe my brain is hungry

I am with you. However, I think coconut oil is a black dot for me, I need to call and get my password to read my swami output again.

Yes, you need the fat for thinking!!! what are you studying?

when EVOO is blended at high speeds in a blender to make mayo, it becomes very bitter


Ah, I didn't know this.  Thanks for this gem of knowledge.

well the good news is that Costco came out with their own Kirkland brand of organic EVOO in a dark bottle and it works very well. I use 1/2 cup of that with 1/4 c macadamia and 1/4 c butter flavored organic evoo, so no refined oils now. The other oil they used to sell was organic but some other brand and made it very bitter but wasn't at all bitter until it was blended. Now I'm a happy camper

Just make sure you're not cutting out the fats TOO much. If you're getting adequate fat from meats and eggs, you may do fine with no added oils.  But a completely fat-free diet isn't healthy either. Most people need at least a teaspoonful a day of butter or oil.


Hi there thanks for the thoughts.

I had 1.5 teaspoon of olive oil on my salad at lunch but probably wont have any for dinner.. trying to take it slow and see how much my body really needs.

hope you are well

Marjorie, I am studying to be a Naturopath. Third year student now. Only another 18 or so months to go - bring on the fat!

I have done this diet in all sorts of regimens.. from the first to the last book/and Swami,  going to the bathroom has never been easy.

Yet I feel better and healthier.  Almonds are edible if soaked in salt water over night.  Peel them, even walnuts might be easier.. But I love nuts.. just that they call foe chocolate... haha

Give up one food at a time  to see what it does over a month,, then add one item at a time see what each does.. is all I can do.. same with spices..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
