Many find success on keto since once they get rid of the processed carbs they previously lived on and replace those processed foods with real food options that keep them satiated longer, so the constant hunger felt by many dieters and cravings simply vanish.
And while that’s a great happily ever after story, there are still many hopeful ketoers that go into keto hoping their cravings will vanish so they can get the same big results they keep hearing about, but a week or two into following keto, cravings take over and they find themselves head first in a greasy bag filled with burgers and an extra large fry.
Today in Part 3 we’re going to explore why some people’s cravings vanish after a few days into the plan, while others struggle with keto since the bag of stale chips hidden in the back of your pantry keeps calling your name.
