Bp Coffee And Stomach Aches
Hey guys. First off I just wanted to say that I know this topic has been gone over a lot on this forum in the past. I just wanted to start a thread where we could do some quick problem solving of the issue of stomach aches after bullet proof coffee (specifically the MCTs in the coffee).
I've been having stomach aches after my morning bullet proof coffee, and they usually last until I eat something later in the day. They're not terrible, they're just uncomfortable. I have read a few of the other threads on this topic and have some possible solutions.
1: Try having the coffee with food.
2: Try lowering the amount of MCTs you are using and slowly increasing over time.
3: Try taking a fat-digesting enzyme with the coffee.
4: If you have been on a low carb diet for a long time without proper re-feeds you may have leaky gut and should look for solutions to fix that issue first.
5: I am out of solutions, but 5 is a more satisfying number.
Please feel free to add more possible solutions to this problem.
Here is my attack strategy.
1: I plan on starting with #1 since that's the easiest, but this will mess up my usual intermittent fasting routine. I would like to find another solution that will let me keep intermittent fasting and still have my morning coffee.
2: I've already done #2, which has removed the need to sprint to the bathroom after too much MCT, but hasn't helped with the stomach aches.
3: Will try #3...
4: I don't think I have leaky gut, but I should probably do some research on that to make sure.
5: ...I can't help it.
Any further information that can help me solve this problem would be greatly appreciated!
