Feel extremely tired after I eat. Tired of being tired!
I am 30 year old female. 5' 2" and weight about 130 most of the time. I have been drinking BP coffee for about 6 or so years now. BP eating about 5 years. So basically I am not new to this lifestyle.
BUT I am not diehard. So I will have a piece of pizza on the weekend or maybe a few french fries with a bunless hamburger. I cannot have sugar though. I am so sensitive to it that it makes me feel like I have had a sleeping pill so if I do go "off" the diet it isn't usually for that reason.
I get extremely tired after SOME meals. I cannot connect the dots what is causing the tiredness.
So for example, last week I did eat "regular" thanksgiving with the dressing, gravy, etc... and no tiredness. None. But today I had Chipotle at 4:30 and I was on the couch for the next 3 hours with extreme tiredness. I do not have time for this because I have a 3 and 4 year old! It doesn't just happen on non-bulletproof meals. It can happen with I have some protein, veggies, and starch (like sweet potatoes) but rice (does not make me tired at all! seriously?!?) Also, I love butter. I put it on everything and every meal so maybe I am doing too much??
So basically what I have done to combat this for the time being is only eat ONE MEAL a day. So I have 2 BP coffees with butter, brain octane, and vanilla in the morning until lunch and wait until 5:30 to eat my first meal with my family. This way if I am tired I still have gotten everything I needed done for the day and my husband is home to help. I do not get this every night but it seems like it is happening more frequently.
I am rather healthy with no other problems. I just feel so silly with this problem because I brag on Dave Asprey and this diet but I cannot seem to get control of this problem or figure out why I am so sensitive. My husband eats hamburger and fries all the time and seems just fine.
