Today we’re going to talk about how to get rid of cravings. This is important because if you have cravings, you’re going to have a hard time sticking with keto. 

A tiny group of cells in the hypothalamus control appetite and the feeling of being satisfied from foods. Information from your sight, smell, taste, and stomach goes to this center. Based on what’s happening, it will send signals down to the body, letting it know you’ve had enough food or when you should start eating. 

Various hormones play a part in this. For example, leptin tells the brain it’s time to stop eating, and ghrelin tells the brain it’s time to start eating. 

Other sensors regulate glucose, amino acids, vitamins, and other nutrients. Based on how many nutrients you’re consuming, the information will go into the brain and tell the body what to crave to get certain nutrients. 

However, when you crave certain nutrients, your body isn’t always going to crave what it actually needs, like kale, for example. Instead, it may crave things that don’t even have that nutrient in it. 

Often, people crave carbs. One reason might be because they’re low in B vitamins. But, when people consume refined carbs, they’re getting empty calories. They’re also triggering insulin, and they won’t feel satisfied. Junk food can also give people an artificial good sensation that makes them crave these foods. 

It’s a trap because refined carbs raise insulin and can cause insulin resistance. When you have insulin resistance, the body can’t absorb nutrients. Now, you’re going to want certain foods and never feel satisfied. This keeps the cravings there and keeps you hungry. 

A few different things that can cause cravings:
• Insulin resistance 
• Empty calories 
• Low bile 
• Consuming too many carbs
• Low blood sugar 
• A lack of nutrient-dense foods 
• Too many triggers in the environment 
• Food enhancers (like MSG)
