http://serious-fitness-programs.com/w... Follow Us On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheSeriousfi... Feeling hungry all the time? If you answered YES to this question, you are not the only one! In fact most of us have gone through this constant hunger phases that makes us feel like we literally have any empty stomach. Keep watching because in this video, Ive listed 5 reasons why you still feel hungry even a short time after you ate No 1: You Have a Fast Metabolism. We all know that guy or gal that eats double or triple the amount of food others eat and yet stays as thin as a toothpick. Some people are indeed very blessed in this regard! While a fast metabolism is useful for preventing extra fact storage, it requires extra amounts of fuel to work and yes youve guessed it--that fuel comes from the food you eat. A study has shown that 32% of the people have slower or higher metabolisms than the average person and hunger problems are no wonder for these people. No 2: You eat a lot of processed foods. Processed foods that are extra rich in carbohydrates and sugars like white bread, cookies, pies, pasta, sweets, cause a sudden spike on our sugar levels. This sugar is then converted into very short-lasting energy but afterwards the energy drops and you end up feeling hungrier than you were before. Refined sugar is probably the no1 culprit behind energy crashes and hunger afterwards so you better avoid its regular consumption. No 3: Hormonal issues. Women who experience hormonal issues like PMS, thyroid problems and diabetes are more prone to hunger than those who dont. For example, when your thyroid hormone levels are abnormally high, you will burn calories faster and that will lead to hunger spikes. Diabetes also bears the same effect. If you suspect that this is the cause of your constant hunger issues, perhaps its time to visit a doctor and get your hormone levels checked. No 4: You dont sleep enough. We all live in very busy world and sadly, many dont have the privilege to sleep 8 hours a day. What this does though, apart from other obvious health issues, is that the hormone leptin, which makes us feel gratified, cant be released in sufficient amounts and in its place, the hormone ghrelin is released, which sends hunger signals to our brains and we are tempted to eat more than what we need to. No 5: Youre obsessed Some people are so obsessed with their food habits and latest diet trends, that all they think is what they are going to eat next. What this does though is tricking your brain that you are hungry often when you are actually not. There are actually quite a few ways to deal with it. Healthy distractions like going for a walk, listening to music, or playing games will help keep your brain occupied for longer so you dont think of food all the time.

Why Am I Still Hungry On A Ketogenic Diet? - Sweet Geek

Why Am I Still Hungry on a Ketogenic Diet? One of the first things I hear from others about their experience with a ketogenic diet is usually that they arent hungry. Suddenly many are able to cut out snacks entirely or even eat just 1-2 meals a day. It saddened and drove me crazy that I was NOT one of these lucky people! Well I think I may have finally figured out why I was still hungry even on a ketogenic diet! Before I share, Id like to start from the beginning. Over Christmas, I decided to eat some desserts that contained gluten. Well one meal turned into a few more you know how it goes and by New Years, my digestive system was seriously pissed at me. I was in a ton of pain and things were not working right in the poop department. :) So I decided to give my guts a break. My husband had recently brought home a protein powder that tasted very good so quite arbitrarily I started a protein shake reset. The first day I had 2 shakes, each shake is 12g carb / 27g protein / 52g fat, about 600 calories. I was hungry and cranky in between meals but I was ready to do whatever it took to get my digestion back in working order. The second day, I had my first shake in the morning and then lu Continue reading >>

    Throwaway account for obvious reasons.
    Husband (55) was just diagnosed with adult-onset diabetes (misdiagnosed for 5 years as panic attacks) but refuses to do anything about it. He had a fasting glucose test (360mg/dL) and a follow-up a1c blood test (11.4%). That's literally the only testing he's had done for it.
    As soon as the initial diagnosis came back, he "fired" his primary care physician for misdiagnosing his condition. But he refuses to talk to his new PCM about it (the PCM has threatened to drop him as a patient because of it). He insists that he'll be fine, "or if not at least I know what's going to kill me."
    Won't change his diet, which has always been high in sugar. He can drink a 2liter bottle of soda a day, jokes that the suggested serving size for cinnamon buns is "all of them," etc. I've made some sneaky changes around the house. There's no snacks in easy reach. I'm cutting down on portion sizes and cooking with fewer carbs. But I have no control over what he does when he leaves for work, and I'm sure there are daily Dunkin Donut runs and fast food lunches.
    He gets blurred vision and what we used to call panic attacks but now we're calling "blood sugar events" about once a week. They're debilitating. He's unable to function for close to an hour and then shaky for another three or four. I did notice that he had a tiny cut on his foot that took forever to heal last year. In retrospect, I should have forced him to get tested then. No cardio or other issues. We regularly go on hikes with steep grades and 1,000' changes in altitude.
    I'm scared (and super pissed off) about his attitude. How long do I have to dig this grave?

    Unfortunately, he can live for many years with horrible complications. You need to figure out what kind of life/partner you want. Are you happy to be sneaky and watch your partner slowly kill himself; or do you want a partner who will take care of himself so he can be around to do fun things? Are you partners or are you his caregiver?

  3. cdn_SW

    I'm so sorry your going through this, you must be incredibly frustrated. In my opinion it's not about how long it will take to kill him, it's about what it will do to his quality of life. Two of the more common and horrible complications of diabetes are problems with the eyes and neuropathy. He could go blind or end up losing a limb. You mentioned a cut that took forever to heal, uncontrolled blood sugar makes you prone to infections that can be difficult to heal, he could end up losing a toe, foot, or part of his leg. Neuropathy can also be horribly painful.
    Your husband needs to get a grip on dealing with this, it's really not that difficult once you make a decision to make some changes and get the proper treatment. You may also need to let him know whether or not you feel you would be able to be his caregiver if his health goes to shit due to his own negligence. It's a harsh reality, but better to come to grips with it now than when it's too late. It's hard to give a timeline, like in many things some people seem to fair reasonably well even with horrible control, and others may do all the right things and still end up with complications. Hopefully you can talk some sense into your husband, maybe have him google some images of diabetic neuropathy or diabetic foot ulcers, and see if that is enough to scare him into doing something.

Help! In Ketosis And Always Hungry! : Keto

A little background first I suppose. I'm 5'5ish and my weight hovers between 168-170. At the beginning of the year I cut my calories and all sugary drinks and managed to lose 20lbs. I have been reading a lot on low carb/keto diets and finally decided to take the plunge. I enjoyed finding new recipes and playing around with different ways to flavor meats, not to mention BACON. "Yay!" I thought! I'm finally going to get my weight under control! Fast forward three weeks. My weight hasn't moved. At all. I have ketostix and it's usually either small and occasionally moderate. I use MFP religiously and I manage to eat 20g net carbs a day or less. I've had a few days where I've gone over, but it's not habitual. I drink one bottle of water at break, another at lunch and a good few glasses (big glasses) of water when I get home. I haven't been paying too much attention to calories since it seems the consensus is not to at first, but I eat between 1200-1500 a day. Give or take. I try very hard to make sure I stay within my macros. Here is my last week's food diary Just as the title says, I am ALWAYS hungry. Not like just have the munchies hungry, but more like ok my stomach is starting to h Continue reading >>

    I'm a newbie female keto-er needing some answers!

    Ok, so here's the deal. I'm 20 this year, approx 4'11'' (151cm over here in Singapore) and weigh roughly 118.8lb (~54kg, averaged over my daily weight fluctuations).. I started a CKD last Sunday, and was previously probably eating quite clean as I worked in a salad bar with fresh salads and fresh fruit juice to consume daily for about a month or so.. My ultimate goal is to lose fats and tone up/gain some muscle mass..
    So, my questions..
    1. I read somewhere that on a keto diet, for people who wanna lose fat, the high fat level is counter productive and we should use a more balanced F/P/C ratio like 40/55/5.. does this work? or will the proteins be used in glycogenesis and my keto will just make me a fatty girl? ):
    2. I have absolutely no idea where i can get ketostix/ketone test strips over here in Singapore as I've been to every pharmacy in my neighbourhood and have failed to find any test strips at all.. is there any other way i can find out if im in ketosis? (I havent had any of the symptoms most people get except the constant dry mouth feeling..)
    3. I know i'm carbing up a little early now, but the first week was to get myself used to the eating style of a CKD and will follow strict CKD ratios from Sunday onwards (Now till Sat night is my carb-up) But, I would like to find out how good/bad/clean/dirty/etc my diet sounds so far..
    Meal 1 - Usually breakfast
    Meat + 1 or 2 whole Eggs + 1 slice of cheese
    Meal 2 - Usually preworkout (About 1.5-2 hours before the workout)
    Meat + 1 Egg + Some ketchup sauce or something (Only sometimes, cos it comes in the can together with the meat)
    Meal 3 - Usually post-workout (As soon as possible)
    4EverFit Chocolate Whey Protein Shake
    Some nuts if i really feel hungry..
    Meal 4 - Usually dinner time or so..
    Meat + 1 or 2 whole Eggs + 1 Slice of cheese(Sometimes only)
    Snacks throughout the day - Nut cup
    Ok, so i didnt really measure my stuff this week as I was trying to get my hand on a food scale, but i will be come next week.. STRICTLY. Also, when i say meat i refer to either Chicken/Bacon/Beef/Fish (Tuna/Sardine/Mackerel only). My nuts include Peanuts, Almonds and Sunflower seeds - I put them in a small cup and limit myself to a maximum of 2 cups a day cos i know those damned nuts are EVIL when it comes to controlling portion sizes.. Also, i portion my meat by using my hand - Place the meats on my hand and one serving is about the size of my palm with no stacking/overlapping of meat pieces..
    I dont know how this works out and stuff, so i really hope someone could guide me out here.. (PS, my mum is getting on me for not eating much veg/rice/fruits etc.. sigh)
    Also, just to mention, my first carb-up meal includes a 6-inch turkey ham subway sandwich with sweet onion sauce (:
    I intend to carb up nice and clean, but when the occasional temptation comes, will some chips/cookies/'dirty' food ruin my carb-up?
    THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE! And I really hope to get replies soon!
    pps, i've been watching my weight and dieting since dec2010 and am proudly down by approx 13.2lb (6kg)!!

  2. leejiayun

    oh yes, also, what are the effects of fructose on a keto-diet? say like when i eat fruits or drink drinks with fructose in it during my carb up...
    and and, last one, i really dont know how many calories of fresh meat im putting into my mouth as i cant seem to get hold of their nutritional values cos the store doesnt write what cut of meat it is (usually the beef is the problem) other than for the chicken breast.. but they're usually around 200-300g per pack and i can use one pack for approx 1-2days for the entire day's meals.. is this a good gauge? or should i be a little more discerning regarding this? THANKS A BUNCHA!

    Keep your protein consumption down to 1 gram per lean body mass. Def follow the 65/30/5 guidelines bc your right, your body will use your protein for energy instead of fats.
    Don't worry about Keto sticks. I tried them and they never register for me and I've wondered if I was in ketosis or not but just rest assure that a's long as you stick to your macros you'll be in ketosis. But if you must, internet search.
    I felt like crap the first 2 weeks on the diet, I had decreased energy, brain fog, and constant urination.
    You should go ahead and do the two week initiation phase even tho you have already started your diet. This will help your body and your mind get use to getting energy from your fat instead of carbs.
    You can carb up however you like. I do a clean carb up but I've read multiple threads saying a dirty bulk is more beneficial and other threads saying that they feel as though they lose all progress that they may have gained through out the week. So basically you have to try it out for yourself. I do doubt that it hurts to do a single day dirty carb up. I don't do it just because I don't want to get used to eating those foods agains.
    I start out with liquid simple carbs like oj or a yahoo then move on to solid simple carbs like fruit, then to veggies and grains.
    You def need to know how much your consuming. I'd cut some of the nuts out and replace with some read meat or oils. Get more fat. What are your macro needs? You need to determine this and decrease cals by around 200. You should also add some greens to your diet. Constipation is a killer on this diet so you need as much fiber as possible.
    Your pwo shake shouldn't contain any fat. It slows digestion. Wait 30-60 min before consuming fats pwo.
    A clean carb up you would switch the fat and carb ratio. Dirty you basically eat whatever you like. If you have a craving, go for it.

Ketosis Hunger & Cravings Read All About It Here Kiss My Keto

What Can You Eat on a Ketogenic Diet? Avoiding Ketosis Hunger & Cravings One of the top 5 fears around keto is the fear of being hungry or experiencing food cravings. When done properly, youre not going to go hungry on keto. This article covers the physical, emotional and psychological hunger and food cravings you can experience on keto, and how to overcome them. If you have chosen to go keto to help you lose weight, you may naturally be concerned about feeling hungry. Fear not my friend! Keto is the best diet for managing your appetite to aid weight loss. Why? Because it influences the hormonal signals that cause hunger. This is one reason people love keto so much there is much less hunger than on a calorie matched low-fat diet. There are different types of hunger, some of which are totally unrelated to food. Hunger is defined as a feeling of discomfort caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat. But, most people are detached from sensations and feelings that arise in the body. So we find it hard to know if we really need to eat. Often we are trying to suppress uncomfortable emotions with food, or we are bored and acting out of habit. Knowing how you are feeling, and Continue reading >>

    So I've read on r/keto that you can use a cheap breathalyzer to test for acetone on the breath which indicates your level of ketosis. The trick is to use a cheap, crappy alcohol breathalyzer to test and not an expensive fancy one.
    The cheap ones can't tell the difference between alcohol and acetone, the good ones (like the police carry) only measure alcohol and ignore acetone (ketones).
    So I bought this breathalyzer http://www.ebay.com/itm/231045711618 from ebay
    And folks in r/keto say that blowing 0.01—0.05 is good and shows youre in ketosis. I just blew 0.14 which I can believe because I've been doing less than 15g net carbs/day this week and I lost three pounds. I put a photo of the readout in my profile pics.
    Has anybody else tried this? What reading levels should I be watching for? This seems a lot better than peeing on a stick.

  2. Booksandbeaches

    That's interesting and affordable too.
    I'm interested in what the veteran keto folks have to say.
    I found this study that says breath acetone is a reliable indicator of ketosis in adults consuming ketogenic meals. It's not a long-term study though, but still intriguing.

    I bought a nice breathalyzer on Amazon.com but it was a good one and it didn't register breath acetone at all, only alcohol so I returned it. Seems like this cheap one does the trick. I'm meeting-up with a friend tommorrow and hopefully she hasn't had any drinks and isn't doing keto, I'm going to get her to blow into it for a baseline test.
