    Coconut Oil During P2??

    Before the Protocol Police turn on their sirens and scream for me to put my hands up, I already know that coconut oil is NOT on the ORIGINAL protocol... and I just wrote at the top of this post, to clarify that for any newbies reading this. I'll even add this... even IF you got your HCG from a clinic and they recommended coconut/MCT oil, it is still NOT part of Dr. Simeon's protocol.

    With all that said...

    I have heard that it helps some people get better results, and for others, it causes them to gain. I have searched and read lots of posts about this topic on the forums, but it's hard to figure out the "general consensus" with all the same people replying on them all. In other words... did 20 people try it... or did the same 5 people tell their story 4 times each. LOL

    I'm curious to find out how many people have used coconut oil/MCT oil while they were on P2... and what kind of results they got from it. I'm tempted to try it, but kinda nervous to do something that might make me gain or stall... or slow my losses.

    How better to figure this out than a poll??

    PLEASE VOTE... and share your story below in this thread.

    I cook in stand I use it on my skin. I only do the skin thing when I can't stand the dryness any more. So maybe twice each cycle?

    I rarely use Coconut oil and when I do use it I use only a little. I haven't had any stalls or gains from the Coconut Oil. I originally was going through a clinic and they told me to use MCT Oil which I did... I never lost weight, I actually gained weight and I had explosive diarrhea from the MCT Oil. After spending hundred at the clinic and not loosing 1 pound... I found this forum and have lost 14 pounds!!! =)

    Hmmmm.... from the sound of it so far, everyone who has tried it has had good results...although most of us are afraid to try it.

    I know that some other people tried it and had scary results, but I don't remember who that was. **shrug** Maybe they will jump on this post and share their story too.

    For those of you who have tried it, can you please share your story?? Did you ingest it, or just put it on your skin??

    I have used it with good results but when I over ate it I noticed a gain. If I make a salad dressing and use it sparingly, I had good losses. Also I made chocolate delight and ate it during a stall, I lost over 1lb, if I wasn't stalling and overate it I gained..but I also cheated that day as well. So I guess my anecdotal evidence isn't very conclusive lol.

    What is MCT oil?

    When I first heard about the hcg diet, it was reading a blog by a patient who was doing the diet through a plastic surgeon, and the protocol he had her on included 1 or 2 tsp of coconut oil and apple cider vinegar daily. I have always wondered if this was part of Dr. T's protocol...

    I decided not to experiment with coconut oil on this round: it's my first and I really don't want to mess up resetting whatever whotsit's meant to be reset. It would be great to have more data on this, though, because I'm a huge believer in the power of lauric acid et al. Coconut is so healthy, and previous to P2 I tried to eat it every day. If the numbers bore out and I felt that it was valid (though rogue) I might try it on a future round.

    R1: P2 1/12 - 2/25 2011; 192# - 165.5# (26.5 lbs lost!)
    R2: P2 5/11 - 6/14 2011; 177# - 153.5# (23.5 lbs lost!)
    R3: P2 8/14 - 9/12 2011; 169.5# - 146.5 (23 lbs lost!)
    (There may be a round 4, most likely in early 2012)



    Allons-y!

    I tried it last night and woke up to 1lb loss, but it was not the ONLY variable in my diet that day, (and I kinda expected about a 1lb loss that day for other reasons anyway), so my experiment is not over yet... and maybe I would have lost even more without it. I will try it again tonight, without any other variables and see what the scale says tomorrow. If I lose more than usual, or the same as usual, I will try it a 3rd day in a row and make sure not to change any other variables from my usual diet/progress.

    It's a blend of medium-chain-triglyceride oils. Coconut oil is approx 66% MCT, so it's commonly used in place of the "blend" of pure MCT, I assume, because it tastes great and is easy to cook with.

    MCT's used to help people burn fat and a few other great helth benefits that I just learned. Here's the eHow on it... http://www.ehow.com/facts_5664953_mc...used-for_.html

    I heard it could help break a stall and I was in a 2 1/2 week stall, so I made chocolate delight (I also did a steak day one day), but I've been eating 2 pieces of it each day for a week and I've lost 8lbs in the last week.
