Vegetarian Bulletproof With Enough Protein?
I have been on the Bulletproof diet for a while now with high fat (about 200-250g a day), enough protein for my weightlifting (about 120g) and quite low carbs (about 100-150g)
I do think I feel more energetic, especially by the Bulletproof Coffee. I actually do it quite extreme I think with my morning shake of coffee, having 2 tablespoon of the Brain Octane oil and 100g of butter mixed into it. This I feel is great for me and I want to continue doing.
However I don't feel like I still feel fully comfortable eating so much meat, especially red meat. I often feel very full after I have eaten it, and in a "bad" way like you are so full you will not be able to eat anything else for hours and hours and you can really feel that it takes a lot of time to digest. Maybe some of my uncomfortable feeling is also related to that it feels a bit macabre still to me to cut up a bloody bit of meat and also I guess it feels a bit strange to eat so much red meat when you have always been told that it is bad for you to eat that much red meat.
I still believe that you should find what is "right for you", and I am not 100% positive eating this much red beef is right for me. I have been thinking of trying for a more vegetarian diet, but with enough protein. It is really hard though to get up in enough without supplementing a lot with powder.
I also remember reading in the Bulletproof diet book that you should not use more then 4 tablespoons of Whey and almost "stay away" from hemp. These two sources would be my main sources for protein. Do you guys have any thoughts on this, and also how do I balance and what do I need to add in to not get any deficiencies? And with balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 etc?
I am thinking I don't need to be totally vegetarian though. I could eat meat/fish maybe 2-3 days a week. If so, would I need to worry about deficiencies at all?
I made a list of a day of vegetarian food here that I could eat, does it look good or should I throw out some things and add in other things?
These things will give me in one day about: 2800kcal , 120g protein, 140g carbs, 200g fat
Brain octane Oil 2 tablespoons
Whey 40g (8 tablespoons)
Hemp Protein powder 60g
Chia seeds 20g
Sesame seeds 60g
Glutenfree Oats 130g
