New To Bp And Scared To Death!
Hi. I am a 42 year old female, former competitive bodybuilder who has been training and involved in fitness for nearly 20 years now. I began the BP diet about a week or so ago because I really needed to add fats to my diet. My joints and body were starting to constantly ache and my brain and thought process had become a bit cloudy from the numerous years of a super low carb and low fat diet. Although I do not compete anymore, I still train as though I do and have consistently followed a pretty strict diet over the years. The thought of eating all of this extra fat scares me to death because I am so conditioned to be afraid of fats. I never in a million years thought I would be adding butter to my coffee- it goes against what I have done for years. So I guess what I need is just a little reassurance or any tips or advice anybody can give that I am not going to blow up like a balloon. I do already feel my joints easing up a bit and I know that my body does need healthy fats, I am just scared that I am going to take in too many fats- or not enough.... Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated. Thanks!
