I know many of my foods Id added to my diet had iodine as well, so I didnt want to get too much. Easy does it I kept remembering. I got my new, thyroid bloodwork back this a.m. and I'd like to share the pics so I'll try to do that. The first is the before numbers, and the second is the "after". I'm so thrilled and I hope others will try this.EC: So sorry, your pics did not upload for some reason.

I have never taken thyroid meds, or any other meds. Just had to changed my diet to veggies fish and some meats over the past year. Coconut oil was helping my diet not be so bland, but despite what I just read on this forum about it possibly being a godo thing, the chest pains don't seem good to me. I'd like more science behind this.
PS: I have also found a few other cases of chest pains with coconut oil from google search.

Here is what I do and it works: Breakfast and Lunch consists of 1-2 tablespoons of VCO with water. Dinner consists of satiety level meat, salad, raw berries, sauteed veggies, and any vitamins I feel I need. Sometimes when eating out, I will include limited rice, white or sweet potato, or whole corn. I try never to eat wheat, bread, milk, SOY, sugar or polyunsaturated oils.
THE EXPERIMENT started: A more than hectic, rushed week began with no time to eat breakfast or lunch; so I ingested 1-2 tablespoons of VCO and drank water for these meals. Well, lo and behold, I did not miss the meals and found that I had tremendous energy, clarity, eyesight and was hungry-less while I only partook of the oil. By dinner time, I began to feel hungry and ate the low-carb meal described above. Within two days, my OH-SO-TIGHT-AROUND-THE-WAIST jeans were not so tight; I wasn't nearly as bloated in the mornings. So I continued this for the rest of the week, finally getting on the scale for my usual Friday weighin, thinking I might see a huge weight gain from all that oil. I had lost 6 pounds in 5 days!
The following days, I purposely went back to my usual low car regime, eating a normal breakfast, lunch, and dinner cooked with VCO or Palm oil and quickly gained the pounds back. I am now 2 days into trying THE EXPERIMENT again and have already lost 2 pounds. I still don't get hungry or feel fatigued, quite the opposite, again. Now, I am aware that coconut oil does not give all the nutrients the body needs so I try to make dinner as nutrient dense as possible, including a multivitamin. I am going to continue THE EXPERIMENT of 2 meals VCO and 1 off and will post in a month (8-18-10) on my progress or lack thereof. By the way, my thyroid loves this as well only experiencing pain when I eat soy out at restaurants. When the throat pain begins, I put a drop of lugol's iodine with a drop of coconut oil on my neck and the pain subsides within 5-10 minutes. SOY is SUCH a bugger!
