48 hours without Coconut Oil

I had an interesting experience going without CO when I travelled recently. After about 30 hours I lost my sense of taste and didn't regain it until I reached home and resumed taking CO. Also I kept perceiving strange odors during that period. Now that I am taking CO regularly I can taste normally and the strange odors are gone.

I had a similar experience in my travel to Europe last fall. The difference is that I did take 4 vials of Fuel for Thought each day. I don't have many data points, but I do know of a few PWP's who benefit from CO, but not from the CO/MCT mixture. I know of only one PWP who benefits from the mixture. For this reason, I do not think that the USF Alzheimers/FFT study (advertised as a CO study) has much relevance for PWP. I have purchased several glass 1oz (2T) bottles, which I carry in my bag. The CO melts readily in hot water or hot coffee. Hint: If a product is liquid at 70F (21C), then it is a mixture.

What is Fuel for Thought? I didn't realize there is a way to carry CO onto the plane, even though it was cold in Atlanta, where I was, and it was hardened. Do you put the CO in the glass bottles and you get through security with them easily?

How much CO do you take daily?

Nothing like that. But I no longer suffer from constipation.

Usually 8 Tbs. If I add it to my cooking it is more.

How and when do you take it? Thanks!

I take it in my beverages and put it on my morning cereal. I even put 2 Tbs in my water bottle.

Do you carry warm beverages? Coffee, soup, tea??? This stuff solidifies!

No I just carry my bottle of water to work with me. If the weather is cold it does solidify inside the water - sometimes I set it out in the sun. I put it in tea and coffee at home.

Dear Joyce,

I'm going on vacation in a month for a week, and have been trying to think of a way to take it with me. Probably will use a small container and put it in my carry-on bag.

Can anyone give me some ideas how to use coconut nut oil I.have ordered virgin coconut oil off Amazon and I can't wait to try it

Coconut oil: 6 tbsps per day (or more; adjust to your experience) Recommended: 2 tbsps at each meal and 2 before bed.

Heat 1/3 coffee cup of coconut milk, the variety that contains 6g of sugar, place two tbsp. of coconut oil and after it melts in a moment, you have a tasty drink not unlike hot cocoa. For that matter, I sometimes add a chunk of sweet chocolate for flavor.
