My sister turned me on to a really good coconut oil, veggie, protein shake. It's so yummy, filling and healthy. I am losing belly fat.

bestcoco4u has more info. I do try to walk a few times a week and have added one salad a day to diet, but I really think it's those healthy shakes that are slimming me down.

Anyone else hear use coconut oil?

This is interesting and I have been on a fruit and veggie diet myself. I normally do strawberry-bananaa-mango-vanilla yogurt. I am looking forward to trying the shake you mentioned!

It seems the original poster is not coming back. So I checked about and found this website. It has a link to a video that claims the MCTs in coconut oil stimulate thermogenesis, increasing the metabolism. There are also a few recipes on this page that link to a page with lots of free recipes that use coconut oil. I will try a few and report back.

Thanks, azhiker96.

I was pretty surprised to see this thread title in my inbox! I'd forgotten all about it!

Just noticed this thread. As I remember from college bio chemistry, coconut oil is a saturated 4-carbon chain compound (something like that). Not considered very healthy because of its effect on cholesterol & CV heart disease. I know from personal experience that it is NOT gallbladder friendly. (Will never touch a pina colada ever again!!!)

It might be the protein and veggie supplementation that is helping - probably helps like long-acting carbs to sustain satiation and thus the avoidance of other foods & drinks. And if I'm remembering the Krebs cycle, fats burn first (9 cals), then carbs (4), and proteins (4) last.

I loved chemistry in college, thanks to my professor. I didn't start that way but he did it to me. First day in traditional mass-lecture hall, in struts the prof in his 3 piece tailored suit, cowboy boots and hat. I thought 'oh, yeah'. Second class, I thought, 'well, maybe not so bad'. Third class, I was in love!

I like chem! And it has stayed with me all these years. My thanks to that guy - shame I don't remember his name but I see him clearly in my mind's eye. Everyone should have a teacher like him somewhere along in their education pathway.
