Thread: coconut flour? First week of p3

    coconut flour? First week of p3

    Curious how people have responded to coconut flour the first week of p3? I'm thinking about trying a coconut flour pizza crust. So far I do ok with dairy. But I haven't tried any coconut flour. I won't try almond flour till p4.

    I held steady at 121.9 this morning. I was 121.2 previous day so not trending down anymore. I wasn't as hungry today as I was yesterday. Yesterday I made a smoothie with cocoa cream and ice and collagen peptides it was decadent. Probably ate a little too much. I was really hungry and waited too long to make it. LOL so busy taking care of the house and kids I put off eating sometimes. Still trying to watch my hunger signals.

    Coconut flour is quite high in fiber and is very hydrophilic. What that means in P3 is eating coconut flour, while being fine to use during P3, can cause your body to hold on to some extra water as it's processing. its good to understand that so that you don't freak out at an upward scale fluctuation the next day. If its something you know you will enjoy, it may be worth a little scale drama.....and of course, you may not have to deal with that at all. Just a possibility.

    For myself, I found stabilization more peaceful if I didn't do a lot of flour replacement type recipes and mostly stuck to whole foods. You can put sauce and pizza toppings in a shallow bowl and enjoy pizza that way. Honestly, I don't think any low carb crusts that I've tried were very good, so that's generally what I did when the pizza cravings hit.

    Those are really good things to consider Leez, yeah, I don't need any scale drama in my life. LOL I have enough going on! Ha. I'll just wait a few weeks to add in the "fake" flours

    Better to avoid even the "fake" flours. They don't help you shake off cravings for breads, pastas and starches, which all metabolize as sugar.

    I had a version of "pizza" yesterday, recipe from a fellow forum member: the "crust" was grated cheese spread onto a circle of parchment paper the size of a salad plate.
    Microwaved 5 or 6 mins until it turned brown all through, then cooled. I heated toppings and marinara sauce on the stove, spread it onto my "crust", added cheese topping, and microwaved 1 min until the cheese melted. I cut it into quarters and enjoyed pepperoni pizza flavors, about 550 cals and 5 g carbs and yummy.

    Sounds delicious. I made a zhuchinni cheese crust Saturday I thought was pretty good because it savory flavor. Mmmm So many good options. Yeah, I'm going to steer away from the coconut and almond flours for now. In p4 I'll expirament occasionally!
