Funny you ask about sugar creep, because I think that's why I'm not going into ketosis as easily as I did last time. I have these little dark chocolate drops..carb count is not bad at all for a small serving once or twice a week or so. But I've been reaching for just a few here, a few there when I get a craving...and I think not keeping track is what's keeping me from getting into full keto.
So...I think maybe I'm going to go a week cold turkey...just get through the sugar cravings the old fashioned way...with sheer willpower and not try to satisfy it with less-harmful options...if that makes sense. Because I remember that the cravings do go away, for the most part. I'm about to blog about this very thing, because last time I started IF first, then keto...I haven't done any IF...I've just done lazy keto, with less than stellar results. I'm beginning to think the IF was my secret weapon for keeping my voracious appetite and sugar cravings under control. 1 day ago
I think taking a break just to maintain for a while is healthy. It puts less pressure on us. I also think our bodies perceive weight loss as a stressor, and needs a break every once in a while. 1 day ago
