These Cravings Are Driving Me Crazy!

There are three reasons why cravings are driving you to eat.

1.         Insulin resistance: 

Consuming a high carb diet raises insulin and keeps your blood sugars low, so you keep craving carbs. In this situation, you will eventually develop insulin resistance. Your cells will be hungry and craving carbs all day long.

2.         Low Fats:

Fats are necessary to allow you to be satisfied, especially when you’re doing intermittent fasting.

3.         Low micronutrients:

Micronutrients are incredibly important, especially when it comes to getting rid of cravings and hunger.

What Do I Eat To Feel Satisfied?

If you consume all of the nutrients that your body requires each day, you will be satisfied and healthy.  If you are consuming the ketogenic diet without nutrients, your diet may be keto-friendly, but you may still feel hungry.

The foods that you see over and over on the list below are nutrient-dense and will satisfy your nutrient deficiencies.

As you fix insulin resistance, you have plenty of healthy fats, and you have plenty of micronutrients—you should get rid of carb cravings.

Trace minerals:

• Zinc 

• Iron 

• Iodine 

• Selenium

You can get trace minerals by consuming: • Seafood • Liver • Seaweed • Grass-Fed Beef • Salmon

Water-soluble vitamins: • Vitamin C (veggies, berries, sauerkraut) • B Vitamins (Folate – greens, liver) (Other – eggs, meat, liver, fish, nuts, seeds)

Minerals: • Magnesium (greens, avocado, seeds) • Potassium (veggies)

Fat-soluble vitamins: • Vitamin A (liver, eggs, cod liver) • Vitamin D (sun, eggs, cod liver) • Vitamin E (greens, sunflower seeds) • Vitamin K1 (greens) • Vitamin K2 (grass-fed dairy, duck fat)

EFA: • Fish • Algae AA: • Eggs

What Can I Drink?

The best beverage choice while in ketosis is pure water. Choose filtered or spring water, sparkling or bottled.

Other Healthy Keto choices include:

Herbal tea

Lemon water

Bone broth

Carbonated drinks unsweetened or sweetened with xylitol, stevia or erythritol

Apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon, added to 8 ounces spring water

Unsweetened almond milk

Coffee in small quantities, preferably only one cup a day

Tea, you may drink tea through the day if it is naturally decaffeinated.

Many people use tea to help them fast longer when they begin to combine keto with intermittent fasting.

If you use cream, use organic half and half or whole cream. If you can get grass-fed it would be even better.

It’s good to add some electrolytes to your water, to help your transition to ketosis. Your body needs these minerals, especially potassium, magnesium and even sea salt.
