Chest Pains (Heart) On Bp Diet
[EDIT: SOLVED] IT WASNT CAUSED BY THE DIET, BUT BY A STERNUM INFLAMMATION JUST ABOVE THE HEART AREA that caused heart stress ! I'm back and happy on the bullet proof diet [/SOLVED]
Hello all ! I hope you can help me!
I'm 28 , I've been 1 month on the BP diet. I started to experience chest pains after day 10
I'm using the BP diet mostly for the cognitive improvement and to slightly decrease body fat % to get some more muscle definition, it's working great so far !
I need much less sleep than I used to and I notice that I can concentrate and focus better than I used to with a classic glucose diet.
Some days I feel great but about 1 out of every 3 days I'm having chest pain that sometimes last 1/3 of the entire day !! that a long time !
Today as I'm writing this, I woke up with chest pain it was going on and off but i had it most of the day ! this is bad ! makes me worried ! only now before sleep it is gradually decreasing ...
I never ever had this chest pains before trying the BP diet ! still I hope is fixable as I experienced many benefits!
Here are some points that I hope can clue to what I'm doing wrong (please ask me if i missed something) :
- Every morning I'm drinking green tea (instead of coffee) and butter only, no other foods,
- During the day I'm also drinking green tea with butter plus veggies, consuming about 120g of salted Kerrygold a day
- In the evening I eat the protein and a little carbs and drink Camilla tea with butter.
- I haven't used MCTs yet or coconut oil yet, I'm only using butter so far ...
-I'm eating veggies every day with butter and salt: mainly broccoli, cucumbers, lettuce also eating 1 avocado every 3rd day or so.
-I'm alternating protein types on different days as not to use one type too much in a raw: 3 eggs one day, fish, mainly salmon and or sardines another day, ham or beef (less often) another day. I always consume protein after 4pm and in the evening.
-I tried to getting more salt , or eating some garlic - one time i had the impression that i got worse with garlic but i can't be sure that's the cause or it's related, I eliminated garlic since then but I still have the chest pains.
-I'm almost not consuming any dairy only unsweetened greek yogurt once every 4-5 days or so
-My carbs are low, and I only consume them in the evening - in a day it could be 2tbs honey, 1 banana , 2tbs peanut butter .
-Having about 1/3 lemon a day as lemon water was recommended.
-I also have plenty of water every day.
-I haven't been exercising much in this period, just about 30 minute jogs once a week.
-I tried to supplement with low quantities (half of recommended daily dose) of multivitamins one every 2-3 days in case something was missing, still no change in the chest pains.
thank you in advance !
