I am *very* new to this BP way of life (1 week to be exact). I am feeling a bit hesitant about it. I am 1 year post pancreatic transplant #2 (former diabetic for 31 years, but no longer since the transplant).
I wanted to try the BP diet for a couple of reasons:
1. I want to lose some pounds
2. I want more energy (the meds I take kick my @$$)
I adore the BP coffee. Can't live without it (even though I never knew I needed to live with it). So much pow - especially combined with my supplements. I haven't seen any weight loss (I actually gained a few pounds). I am eating less than I did before (which wasn't a whole lot to begin with, but it was pretty carb centric). I am *not* overweight and I am pretty active (treadmill and pilates reformer a few times a week).
My question to all of you out there is: I do not, nor have I for the last 35 years, eaten any meat except for chicken and turkey and even then, it's not often. Are there others like me out there doing the BP thing? If so, how do you navigate the meat situation?
Are there other women (I forgot to mention, I am a 41 year old female) out there doing this too? How is it working out for you?
