    there is a nice thai soup dish that involves hot peppers and chicken cooked in it. tastes amazing, but need to watch the calories of course when using coconut oil

    Is there any actual scientific proof behind your suggestion that coconut oil raised your test levels, and that it wasn't caused by something else?

    the saturated fat, lauric acid, which is high in coconut oil raises ldl and hdl levels (but because hdl goes up ldl will drop afterwards)... high hdl levels are linked to higher test levels

    http://atvb.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/11/2/307

    although dont binge on that lauric acid yet...


    stearic acid another found in saturated fats, turns into oleic acid in the liver... (found in red meat, cocoa butter). unfortunately red meat comes with more palmatic acidsaturated fat which raises ldl
    oliec acid, found in monounsaturated fats (olive oil,safflower) just boosts hdl without the ldl so the effect is greater.

    I like to hold a coconut in my hand and slam it on the ground once or twice until it cracks open, then drink the juice with a straw.

    according to this site, which may be complete bullshit i dunno, but coconut oil is the best 'test booster'.

    I know, I was referring to that. I was hoping someone would catch it :mamoru::mamoru:

    But srsly, you inspired me to do that.

    Toast coconut in a baking pan @ 350 for about 5 min make sure to keep an eye on it as it will burn easily. I usually sprinkle some on yogurt or oatmeal or just eat it by the handful.

    guys make sure its virgin or not processed, as cheaper products are hydrogenated. (in coffee creamers they use hydrogenated coconut oils)
