This question came up yesterday (1/15) and in the interest of time I gave a much more abridged answer than warranted. I mentioned that there has been a lot of research that has looked specifically at coconut and concluded that it is healthy. Here's why : Coconut is a saturated fat, which were once all believed to be unhealthy. A more thorough understanding of them has shown that not all saturated fats are created equal. Coconut contains a high percentage (60%) of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which are rapidly assimilated and utilized as energy (as ketone bodies) by all cells. Additionally, MCTs have been linked to the reduction in pro-inflammatory cytokines (markers of systemic inflammation), and supports the development of a healthy intestinal wall (i.e. helps to heal leaky gut). The MCT lauric acid is particularly high in coconut which is well known for its antiviral, antimicrobial properties.

In What's all this about?
Consistently over the years, I've gotten feedback that one of the most challenging elements of the cleanse is feeling a lack of social support (let's face it, eating this way is NOT the norm!) and ideas on how to manage the day to day grind of eating simple foods. Although you'll hear many ideas from me on how to cope, our group is truly one of your greatest resources. In this online forum, I invite each of you to participate at whatever level feels most helpful for you. From the "Discussion Topics" page you can click on any of the categories to see relevant conversation threads. If you have any questions on how to use this, just email me, or comment below.
