My stomach has been getting upset more often and I think it might be the oil I’m using to coat things (EVOO). What are you using? I’ve heard some people switched to coconut but I don’t know how healthy it is.

I’ve always used olive oil with no problems, but I don’t use a lot so maybe that’s why. Can you use a small spritz of Pam instead?

I’ve seen coconut oil recommended in the VSG literature my nutritionist gave me. It has healthy fats. I don’t like cooking with it though. I find it too greasy.

Cold pressed EVOO works best for me. Have you tried switching to a different brand? Not all oils are made the same way. I would recommend to always make sure the bottle indicates the oil is cold pressed.

I didn’t think about switching brands, I should try that. I’m just leery of using coconut oil because you can use it for so many things. Maybe I’ll try it and see how it affects me.

I’ve been avoiding using oils, but I do keep a small bottle each of olive and canola. Have you tried cooking with a bit of chicken broth?
