Wife Always Hungry.. What Are We Doing Wrong?
My wife and I started trying out the bulletproof diet a few months ago, and once I got over the initial TOO MUCH MCT OIL OH GOD phase (she didn't have the same problem), things seemed to be going alright. But this past week she confessed to me that she is hungry almost all the time, even after eating a satisfying meal, and has been for a while. It's getting to the point that she feels sick like she hasn't eaten all day literally right after a meal and I'm getting worried! I've tried scouring the internet for a solution, and yet nothing seems to make sense (other than a doctor's visit that could have potentially horrible news along with a high pricetag as we don't have insurance right now and have very little income). She eats slowly, not quickly, so slowing down isn't the problem, and the amount of water she drinks doesn't seem to change anything at all, either, so that's not it.. I'm doing fine (I'm female as well, I just don't typically identify as such), and have actually been less hungry, though I'll be honest, the eight hours of energy and satiation I keep hearing about in terms of the BP coffee is falling a bit short (more like half that), and I'm not really sure what's up with that, either.
We're both eating the same things, only grass fed beef, wild caught salmon and tuna, grass fed butter and coconut oil (from the organic grocer, cold pressed, we're trying to save money and it's cheaper there than to buy it from the website here) in our morning coffee (organic fair trade breakfast blend also from the organic grocer). We have two eggs a piece almost every day, and usually some organic grapes and almond butter, and occasionally apples. We do have some vodka maybe once a week, and not much, and drink grass fed milk about as rarely (because she absolutely refuses to live without milk so I had to come to a compromise somewhere).
My weight has stabilized at 118 (I'm 5'4") and hers is still dropping very slowly (5'7" and 123 at last weigh in), and though we don't exercise currently we do take vitamin D3 supplements each morning (5000 IU) and a serving of powdered greens mixed with organic probiotic juice (GAK it's tough to swallow) every other day.
So the rundown is that I've looked everywhere, and I figure if any single group of people can help identify what's going on and help us fix it, it would be the people here. This is the first time we've done anything like this diet, both of us coming out of a high stress, junk food routine of convenience in a military setting. Suggestions?
