Having Trouble With Satiety On Just Bp Coffee In The Morning
So I've been on the BP diet since the beginning of January. I haven't been perfect at it, but have stuck pretty closely to the food guidelines. I haven't had the most drastic results, only losing about 7 lbs. and 4 inches (I know that's partially my fault for not sticking to JUST "green" side foods, but have stuck to yellow - green consistently).
One thing I'm having trouble with is being satisfied with just having BP coffee in the morning. I have been doing IF 4-5 days a week and tweaked the IF time to cutting off eating by 9pm and eating again the next day around Noon. I tried 1pm and 2pm, but have found that I am just too hungry by then! Tummy rumbling, can't concentrate, hungry. I know that I can have another cup of BP coffee if I'm hungry, but I don't have the means at work to make the coffee there (I once tried making an extra cup to take with me, but didn't have the means to reheat it - GROSS!) I also tried adding some vegan, and then recently, collagen protein, which helped a little, but I am STILL finding myself hungry by 10:30 or 11am when starting off with BP coffee at 8am.
I have been doing 15-20 minutes of weight lifting exercises 2 times a week with 3 days of rest between. I usually do my workout around 2-3pm on the days I don't work, and around 5:30pm on the days I do. I haven't really noticed a huge impact in hunger on the days I work out, but am not sure if that makes a difference.
Has anyone else had a problem with making it til afternoon on just BP coffee? Any insight into why this isn't working well for me, and suggestions on some tweaks I could make?
Thanks in advance!
