Whats Is Wrong With My Bp Diet?
I have been on Bulletproof diet for around 4-5 weeks. I was feeling extremely amazing first two weeks when i started Bulletproof program. Unfortunately suddenly i started feeling crap like before, waking up around 4-5 am, feeling groggy and tired in the morning, feeling even stresses for no reason during the day. Just to let you know when i started my Bulletproof diet i was not drinking BP. I introduced BP to my diet around 1-2 weeks, i was making this using super good quality coffee (we have plenty super good brands in London) with grass fed butter, coconut oil and later on with MCT oil. one day I have realised when i added too much MCT oil it made very anxious so i since then i put max around 1 tsp or less. My question is if BP could make me feel bad again? is there any possibility i am allergic to coffee as sometimes after BP i feel anxious i feel something like lump in my throat. I did little research i was always drinking BP with some food - breakfast with eggs, it was ok fro while but then boom feeling crap again after BP, i was also trying BP with digestive enzymes or Betaine HCL - same. My girlfriend does not have any issues after drinking BP.
My daily routine:
Wake up 7 am
Breakfast: glass of mineral water with half tea spoon of Himalayan salt and lemon juice, 2-3 free range eggs (soft boiled eggs, poached, scrabbled eggs etc) with grass fed butter with piece of mackerel or organic paleo sausage (no preservatives, just meat and spices) or piece of organic bacon, very often i also have in the morning green smoothie (water or home made almond milk with cucumbers, baby spinach/watercress, avocado, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, i do add sometimes L-glutamine or raw cacao)
Lunch: Green smoothie with Sunwarrior proteins or salad (avocado, spinach, seeds, cucumber, any other greens, carrots with piece of fish or meat leftover from dinner)
Snack: Protein smoothie or soup (broccoli, leeks, spinach, carrots, bone broth, coconut oil/butter etc)
Dinner: Piece of grass fed meat (lamb, beef or pork) or organic chicken or fish with lots of vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, spinach, asparagus with grass fed butter, coconut or or mct oil, also sometimes i add to this piece of sweet potato
Dessert: very rare i eat some home-made coconut milk ice cream (coconut milk whisk with blueberries or strawberries, sweetened with honey or xylitol)
Supplements: magnesium citrate at night, selenium morning/afternoon, iodine (sometimes), D3 & K2 in the morning, chlorella sometimes, probiotics (1-2 times a day, using only strains which helps with histamine), coQ10, B3 (sometimes), teaspoon of fish oil in the morning, sometimes using with my meals digestive enzymes from Solgar or Enzymatica.
Exercise: 2 x week - usually different types of push ups, pull ups, squats and some exercises with dumbbells
i don't drink alcohol because i always feel crap day after even if drink just 1 or 2 pints of beer.
i also sometimes do drink fresh cold pressed juices - it's a part of my work:) - some of them are quite high in carbohydrates but i maybe drink altogether 0.5 litres.
Is anyone here had similar problem before? i just cant figure out what i am doing wrong. Before starting BP diet i also once was feeling amazing - was drinking lots of green smoothies for breakfast and lunch but after around 10 days i crushed again and i started feeling crap. I was thinking i maybe have some problems with gut - sometimes i feel bloated when i eat Brussels sprouts or cabbage - this is the reason i started adding digestive enzymes, i was even thinking i may have GERD - as i have this lump in thorat when i drink BP coffee or even when i drink super strong tea or chocolate. Any help will be very helpful.
