Where Did My Appetite Go?

It’s the flip side to being hungry all the time: what on earth do you do when your appetite just isn’t showing up to play? When you count up your food and find you’re eating almost nothing – not because you’re trying to starve yourself, but because you just aren’t hungry for it at all. You don’t even want to eat. This can be great for weight loss, but it can also be pretty scary to experience without knowing why, and you might be wondering whether you’re accidentally depriving yourself of necessary nutrients on such a tiny amount of food. So why could this be happening? Ketosis Ketosis is a metabolic state where your body runs primarily on fat for energy, instead of carbohydrates. You achieve ketosis by eating a very low-carb diet. Whether you were intending to eat a ketogenic diet or not, if you don’t make an effort to eat any tubers or fruits, you might end up accidentally taking Paleo in a ketogenic direction. And one of the best-known side effects of ketosis is loss of appetite. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with this – it’s one of the reasons why ketogenic diets can be so great for weight loss. If you want to lose weight or don’t mind the appetite Continue reading >>

    Why no ketosis in the morning?

    I have been on Ketogenic diet for bit over a month (with a few cheat days once in a while) and monitoring the ketosis level with Ketone strips. I am very happy with my progress so far, but one thing that always puzzled me is that I never get a ketosis in the morning (at least according to ketone strip) even after a high-fat breakfast with BP coffee. It's only around noon that it starts registering the trace/low amount of ketone, and it gets stronger in the afternoon, and usually at night the strongest. Perhaps because of that, I feel a bit inert & hungry early in the morning, but less so as it gets closer to noon. Is it just me or anyone with similar experience?

    The most probable reason is that in the night the body uses most of the ketones produced since you have no food. So there is none to be spill so that the ketone strips can measure. Eating fatty acids doesn't produce ketones instanly it takes liver time to produce ketones in excess and then to arrive to the kidneys were the ketone strips can measure them.

    Thanks yoly2, that makes sense.
    So this fat-rich breakfast I am eating doesn't really kick in until a few hours later. Are there kind of quicker acting fat food that I can eat for breakfast that would give me more energy earlier in the morning?
