Debrah and Diana, that's MCT coconut oil that I mentioned. Coffee alone is known to suppress appetite and MCT helps that too because while your appetite is suppressed, you still get a direct form of fuel as MCT coconut oil that circumvents your digestive system.

I noticed that I am at my best when I am on almost empty stomach. So what I do in the morning, I delay my digestive system from starting so I get more hours to be at my best.

I noticed that when I am bored, I tend to want grab something to eat and if I don't stop, I soon get lethargic which makes my work harder. It's not easy to do sedentary job being self-employed when you have no team and no boss to answer to. I guess coffee and MCT coconut oil help me maintain discipline and accountability.

I use coconut butter on my rice cakes, in cooking at the end for extra taste.

My son uses it in his coffee as well.

I only use coconut oil as make-up remover. I rub it on my eyes after I wash my face and it works like a charm. I have never used coconut oil for food or drink. Perhaps I should...?

Coconut is one of those allergy issues that can be well hidden at times as the oil is in so many foods, even chocolate. Its something that my Son is allergic too but it was a long process of limiting foods and additives to find it. For him it was stomach issues not severe but enough to need attentions. For my husband it brings out hives on his arms and back. He can not touch our Canadian chocolate at all.

Many times a food allergy hides well, but the more you consume the more severe the reactions can become, to the point of hives or even toxic shock.

Not saying its not a good thing, for most it is but like all foods at times its not.

If the crow has chosen you as your spirit or totem animal, it supports you in developing the power of sight, transformation, and connection with life’s magic.

I have in my coffee many times and wow!
It's food for the brain! And body.

"Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death
by riding daily in a balloon of divine perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones...
Meditate unceasingly, that you quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence"

~Lahiri Mahasaya, the Guru of Yogananda's Guru

I have no scientific evidence for anything I say.

I try to eat normal sized meals 2 times per day and less than 3/4 each time but it's not easy to stop the enjoyment you only have 2 times per day. You want more and in my case my willpower determines the outcome. I also exercise 3 times per day which helps to suppress appetite as well.

I am trying to figure whether what I feel others feel too or I have some food incompatibility as I feel the way I described i.e. no mental clarity, hard to find proper words to communicate and comprehend feeling like a slowpoke and lethargy if I start sitting. I do exercise 3 times per day 1 1/2 hour total and I feel this helps me recover from above condition.
There seems to be a food revolution going on at the moment that I'm personally trying and helps with those old cravings and satiation. The truth about fat being bad for you is now under scrutiny...as well as grains. It seems we have been duped into believing grains are healthy and fat is bad where its now being scientifically proven that we need fat and lots of it compared to other foods and that grains are actually poisonous to our system.

I began the low carb high fat diet four weeks ago and found that my body feels so much lighter already never mind about using scales. The fat around my stomach is dropping off where with other diets this was the most stubborn area and remained for years.

When I say Grains I mean all of them, rice, oats and wholegrains included. Grains are inflammatory and cause all our major and minor diseases...especially heart disease. However fat is brain food, does not cause high cholestrol and helps us with satiety. There are still some to avoid though and this includes canola and all vegetable oils. Coconut, Olive, Avocado and butter are the big ones to ingest.

The Keto diet is supposed to help with clarity and energy derived from fat both ingested and your own body fat, which means you don't get the crashing in the day and also helps with less food intake. Some even manage to do fasting for a day or two which also increases energy go figure.

Here's a video I found today on the subject of grains and how we've all been duped for so long about fat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ztQ_0e6BrE

Another film that I could suggest would be watching The Magic Pill...a real eye opener
