My nutritionist challenges this with saying the coconut oil is not necessary, so I'm not sure what to think?

I could tell I felt better using it, and I would like to continue to see if I have some results!

Very hard to stay entirely off of carbs for three weeks, especially with a family, and being head cook, and two men who have high metabolisms and need to eat! Difficult to plan two separate meals every evening. So I have just tried to go back to less carbs.

I definitely like the recipes, and the

This book has a lot of very helpful information in it. Not only does it explain the ways different foods work with your body, it gives potential solutions for eating better for specific health problems. The chapter of the book that was most helpful to me was the one on thyroid function.

This book has chapters on organ cleanses and h

This is by far one of the better diet books out there as it has a real focus on maintaining and improving health, and is not any type of fad diet or quick fix weight loss diet.

Although this advocates eating meat, and may seem to be a puffed up version of a low carb diet, I still enjoyed reading this. The success stories were interesting and sparked my interest in the benefits of taking coconut oil although I am always wary of a "miracle" food, especially when it is processed into a jar. Nevertheless, I suspect some people may have success with this diet.
