An update to my coconut experiment...of my three volunteers, all male, one in his late 30's, the other two in their 50's, one reported, after just a week that his skinny jeans were so skinny any more. One of the 50 somethings lost 3 pounds the first week and said his skin was better...he must suffer through cold Illinois winters. Unfortunately, my third volunteer had to stop as the coconut oil was giving him heartburn. I have not been as diligent about my daily consumption, however, I think there's been a shift in my body fat. My weight goal for the year is to drop the last 5 pounds so the target is 50 KG, 110 pounds. I've been listening & reading to the raw foodists, the paleo people and more just to see what I'm willing to tweak. It really is about lifestyle change and how much you are willing to change your lifestyle to accomplish your goals. On the fitness front, more plyometrics and a little more diligence on the weight training and cardio. Also been slipping on the yoga practice during the holidays so that needs to be back on track as I'm thinking a 500 hour training course in the fall.
