    Hiya, coconut oil should be fine as there's no carbs. I get mine from the coconut oil company.co.uk it's premium virgin which is the best kind apparently. I am unsure about soy or worcester but you could check the label in a supermarket, salt content might stall some people.:)

    I use a little bit of worcester sometimes in meatballs.....

    I'm sat here now with my head wrapped in a plastic bag and a towel...covered in coconut oil....haha....same one I use for cooking too....its good stuff...the 'refined' has no smell or taste FYI. The 'virgin' is very sweet and fragrant...probably not the best for savoury dishes.

    The website I use is www.coconutoil.co.uk. It should come up when you google - can't understand why it doesn't.

    If you just google coconut oil uk sites will come up.

    Coconut oil is great! So versatile.

    Have you read up on the benefits of eating three tbsp a day when doing low carb?? I am such an advocate for this the benefits are phenomenal!!! People have reported faster weighloss, and it's also known to kill off candida in the stomach over time. It gives you so much energy due to the medium chain tryglycerides. It really is a wonder product. The kind you need is extra virgin cold pressed or expeller pressed coconut oil... If it doesn't say that on it then it's not as good :)

    Yes i have been reading up about it tf, i also heard that you musnt buy the hydrogenated one either as its very bad for you like polyoils
    I did read about people losing weight quicker aswell when using this as an oil instead - rushes off to the shop to buy a pallette load :p

    I never use it to fry stuff I just eat it lol it's way to tasty to be frying with lol I can imagine it tasting a bit coconutty though. It was the reviews of nutiva that made me buy it too, and I wasn't disappointed coz it's delish. But I haven't tried any other ones yet, so let me know how the garden of life one compares. I reckon it has sped up my weight loss a bit... I am almost 2 pounds down this week and I usually only manage 1. It makes you feel so hyper tho like you have so much energy,my
    Fiancé had to tell me to get out the car this morning coZ i was buzzing lol

    It wouldn't surprise me to find that the coconut oil sped up your weight loss. It can be very hard to fathom how extra fat when low-carbing hastens weight loss but it so often does!

    Keep up the good work.
