Bulletproof Beans Make Me Feel Tired/foggy/nauseous

I've been doing bulletproof coffee for over a year now (2 tbs kerrygold, 2 tbs upgraded MCT). Up until recently though, I've always used Starbucks or whatever random store bought coffee I could get. I got a Keurig machine as a gift so I ordered some Bulletproof cups and have been using those. Nothing else has changed.


Now that I am using the BP brand grounds, I don't get the same caffein buzz, but I do feel some major brain fog, lethargy, and even the tummy-rumbles I used to get when I overdid the MCT at first. So basically, all the problems I should have been getting with toxic coffee I never got, but now that I am using BP coffee I get them.


Anyone else experience this? Thoughts? 




  • Your coffee during that year was not "bulletproof".  To me, it sounds like some detox going on now that you've got the good stuff.  Give it a good six weeks to feel better even though  it shouldn't take that long.  I experienced nausea and sleeping way less when I first started the BP program.  I'd reduce the MCT oil a bit too.  Are you eating BP as well?

    I don't think you'd get detox symptoms that noticable by just switching starbuck's coffee to upgraded.

    Thanks to the internet, health experts, and my unending curiosity, I have overcome: excessive sweating (adrenal fatigue), anxiety and panic attacks, extremely high estrogen levels (man boobs), chronic brain fog (yeast overgrowth), depression, and am currently battling SIBO (took it from being so bloated it felt like my stomach skin was going to rip, slept 2 hours per night for a week because of upset stomach and being chronically fatigued to very mild, manageable but still annoying symptoms) and currently battling sleep deprivation/insomnia probably due to the SIBO/Leaky Gut and resulting histamine intolerance.
