Health Suffering On Bp Diet. Please Help.
I've been doing the bulletproof diet for over a month now along with the BP coffee in the morning with MCT oil. I've noticed my low thyroid symptoms are back (minus the brain fog and low energy), I've gained about 7lbs., I missed my cycle (which never happens), my elimination is infrequent, and I've been in a crummy mood. I'm not sleeping well either. This clearly isn't working for me and I suspect my adrenals are suffering. I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions on what might be throwing my system out of whack? I'm supplementing with vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, methylated Bs, and digestive enzymes. Is this common until your body adjusts or what?
No one has addressed the issue with adrenals, thyroid, and elimination. What's the deal with this? Should I try drinking more himalayan saltwater in the morning for elimination? My body is clearly stressed on this diet. What is the best way to deal with this?
UPDATE: Taking Betaine HCL totally addressed the elimination issue. I'm using NOW brand but Source Naturals is the one Dave recommends. Especially if you're an A blood type (as I am), the betaine is super helpful. A blood types tend to have lower stomach acid so digesting fats and protein can be a challenge. Such a helpful product! Of course, be sure to follow the directions and not take too many, it's hydrochloric acid after all. Also, try lipase.
