    Hungry ?

    Most on keto find that being high fat .......they actually feel fuller longer. Unlike carbs (particularly moderate to high Gi carbs) whereas the convert to glucose faster and end up leaving you hungry quicker.

    5-7 meals a day of high fat, and fiberous green veggies for the majority of your carbs (excluding PW, of course) and you shouldn't be hungry.

    Did you just come off a bulk bro ?........maybe you just so damn used to eating like a horse. LOL

    PEACE

    WW7 make sure your not just flaxing most of your fat cals......when I do that from time to time.....I do find I'm hungrier than when I eat a combo of fat.

    Bump Chi...Make sure you have enough fat in your diet and I know you just started with this so it will take some time to adjust.

    using mostly flax definitely left me feeling hungry, and I ate alot, and often... although, I am willing to bet that if you include more fatty meats and cheeses, your problem will be solved.

    I've done keto twice about 3 years ago (worked well BTW), I was hungry as hell all the time. I think my problem was not enough cals maybe, but especially the first 10 days the hunger was incredible.

    Use an ECA or NYC then. It will help suppress appetite.

    Go to the drug store and pick up some keto stix. They're cheap and will tell you in 15 seconds whether or not you're in.

    How much broccoli are you eating a day? Try eating several pounds worth of broccoli/cauliflower/cabbage etc. and see how you feel. That'll fix hunger better than salad any day. Plates full of cooked spinach, turnip greens etc work a lot better too. And I mean huge platters full, not just bowls full =D

    Also, if you haven't already try a lot of sour cream and whipped cream cheese with the veggies. At only 30kcals per tablespoon, you can eat a lot of it. You can pretty much eat continuously if you pick the right foods. No way to be too hungry if you never stop eating.

    I am with chi and others....forget the flax. Too calorically dense and not filling at all. Get rid of other dense fat sources if you need to as well.

    Just making these changes I went from being hungry as *&*& at 3000 kcals per day to being quite full at < 2000.

    Limit your whey


    Using whey protein as the main ingredient for any of your meals (excluding post workout) will cause an insulin spike, followed by the urge to carb binge shortly there after.

    I agree 100%.

    I took just one Stacker with caffine and ephedrine. It was all I could do just to force down a chicken breast and a small amount of oatmeal. I nearly puked a couple times.

    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


    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.
