Returning To Bulletproof After 1+ Year
January 2015 was when I first discovered and began my Bulletproof adventure. After 4 months of following this plan, I was a new man. My business exploded into a freight train and I was holding on for dear life. Bulletproof and health gradually began to take a back seat once more, and by the end of last year the only things I was still doing was morning BP coffee, supplements, and skipping breakfast. I had put the 30lbs back on, and more. My energy was downtrodden at best. And after my wife finally left, my diet consisted mainly of delivery pizza and the occasional salad. Coupled with 70-80 hour work weeks I had become a mess once more.
Currently, one of the biggest red flags I've been getting from my body is that every meal causes my heart rate to go up and then causes me to have a serious crash. Like I have to take a 2-3 hour nap. I have been attempting to restart BP, but even meals from this philosophy cause the same reaction although not as bad as a large pepperoni extra cheese. I'm a little distraught, and not sure why healthy food is also causing the 'reaction' Dave talks about in his book. I remember BP meals back when I first started and they evened me out after a few days.
Nothing has ever worked for me like Bulletproof has. I was vegetarian (vegan for a while) for nearly 10 years and my energy levels constantly suffered under stress. Reading BP encouraged me to integrate healthy animal proteins and I was glad I did. I am determined to restart, but am unsure if when you stop and restart that maybe it doesn't work so good anymore? I wanted to start this thread documenting and sharing my experience; and would welcome any advice or encouragement. I am re-reading Dave's book and hoping the inspiration I received some 20 months ago will help me to fall back in step with this plan.
I did search, and could not find a thread on this topic. If there is one, sorry, please make me aware of it.
