BETHUMZ,
I view eating higher carb things as being a summer time thing. I view Keto as being more like a winter time diet. It doesn't turn from summer to winter in a heartbeat, but over many weeks.

Likewise your body chemistry takes time to adjust. But when it does, suddenly you aren't hungry or weak because you can more easily burn your own body fat (or dietary fat). Imagine if the human species, in winter time was hungry and weak all winter. Not only would we be miserable, we'd have less of a chance against nature and predators.

If you believe in evolution (and I do) then the human race will have evolved to overcome that during winter time. The evolution would be to burn fat more easily, not be hungry, not be weak, and to make it through the winter.

But I agree, it is pretty amazing to experience it, especially after many winters of imported summer foods that don't let the body get into its winter time (Keto) state.

Hair falling out?? Trust me, I do not need more of that! I'm already losing enough due to the methotrexate I'm taking for my rheumatoid arthritis!

I'm just trying to get used to this sensation. I went from that 'constantly hungry' feeling to 'not hungry' and it's very weird. A week ago I didn't believe it. I swear is used to eat like every meal was my last. This might take some getting used to. emoticon

one of the joys of keto..no hunger no cravings...isnt it great??
do be sure you get enough calories. i had to change my total mindset to food is fuel and necessary..NOT pleasure. If you dont eat the correct amount of calories you risk you hair falling out, nails being brittle, etc..so do watch for those things and if they happen be sure to eat more. Keto is NOT a calorie deprivation diet..in fact quite the opposite..if you eat at a deficit eventually you will stall and have trouble losing weight and reaping the many health benefits of keto!

Okay, I've heard it can happen but I think I've lost my appetite...

This is so weird. I had trouble finishing dinner last night and just now I literally could not eat my lunch. I tried and it was just a no go. I don't feel sick, I just did not want it at all.

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE. Is this some strange keto-induced trick? Carb-addiction is real! Wow.
