Not all people can digest coconut. Margarine is not processed the same as USA is so is less dangerous than it used to be. One Dietician/Nutrition to me to stay off Dairy but told me to cook with butter. It was wierd I was allowed to eat eggs and bacon for breakfast once a week, the rest of it I mostly ate the same as I had for tea the night before. I have insulin resistance (my liver makes too much insulin) My cholestarol "went through the roof" and my insulin dropped very little. I as eating mainly vegetables and very lean chicken or beef. Another problem it caused was constipation because I was not eating good fats either. Fruit was a treat so I was missing out on fibre from it too. I also wasn't allowed any grain products at all. Yes, I lost weight but it also caused shocking headaches. Apparently you are only supposed to stay on that strict a diet for 6 weeks. I was told it was permanent. My GP and another dietician both said it was dangerous to stay on that diet for longer than 6 weeks at the most. It was high Protein, low carbohydrate (good and bad).
