I ran across coconut water in the grocery store, on sale by a generous $0.30 per 1L tetra-pack. I'd heard of it before, vaguely, somewhere reputable. I bought it to try and forgot about it in the back of my fridge.
I was just finishing up reading Jillian Michaels' Slim for Life and she mentioned coconut water as a good source of potassium and way to help combat bloating from too much sodium and "lady-time" (as I like to call it). Since I have "after" photos being taken in a week for my 6-week body challenge from boot camp, I thought "Why not try this? See if you look less bloat-y?"
Sweet mother of all things decent, no.
Imagine a liquid that is the consistency of egg whites. Also the color of egg whites, clear-ish but yellow-ish. Now imagine it has the sickeningly sweet taste of coconuts. Now drink it.
I think I'm going to chase it with a shot of bleach. I don't care if it makes me lose 20lbs this week - not worth it.
If you really like coconut, fill your boots. I have 0.75L with your name on it if you have a death wish.
