    one last one....

    Not necessary, but keep in mind the hungrier you get the more likely you will be to make bad decisions. Also I'm not sure the effect that extended not eating has on metabolism.

    Is coconut cream or milk ok to eat?

    If you mean coconut milk, yes but with caution that it is very caloricly dense. A little goes a long way. I use it in currys all the time. Milk is not ok.

    Can you drink your vegetables?

    Gut some fats on those vegetables and your tongue will come around. Then you get the double-whammy of fiber and fat which are two of the best sating things you can eat.
