Why do you get so damn hungry on CKD?

This looks a lot like the guy isn't getting into ketosis, which is THE most important factor for hunger/craving on the CKD. And as he says, the moment he gets some carbs, the hunger goes away.
Some people will be able to get into ketosis with 40g carbs a day. SOME, but not ALL. Eating huge amounts of spinach and broccoli is certainly to be avoided when you are borderline ketosis. If you need fiber, just buy some psyllium husks and mix them into your shake, this will stave off the problem of an only-too-well-greased digestive tract.
In my experience, the less carbs you eat during the week, the earlier you will get into ketosis, the less you will hunger and the more you will feel INEXHAUSTIBLE energy in the gym, as out. On the weekend, some advise protein and carbs, but I'm with Mauro DiPasquale here, fat and carbs is the thing to do.
Just my lil' 0.02$ Peace

One word: LEPTIN Originally posted by windwords7 I am soooo hungry all the time it would seem. Is that the normal deal?
There may be a few more factors in play, but this bad boy just might be the culprit. I have to study for finals tonight, more on Leptin tomorrow.
