I started adding coconut oil to my morning protein shake and I've noticed my last few bowel movements have been more challenging than usual. I know that coconut oil is basically solid at room temperature and gets rock hard if you cool it, but it should liquefy during digestion, no? Not only that but it's a fat so it should smooth things out and act as a lube, so I don't understand why the bowels have been bound. Here's what goes into the shake: Milk Whey Powder Chia Seed Frozen Raspberries Greens Concentrate Powder Greek Yogurt (sometimes) Prior to the Coconut Oil this never caused bind ups, in fact I was taking rather large albeit easy dumps. Enter the coconut oil and it feels like I'm passing bricks. I know coconut oil is healthy but am I using it wrong? Are you supposed to only use it when you're cooking (i.e. high temps)?
