I know I’m not the only one who does this. You know, grabbing a few pieces of chips because the bag just happens to be laying around on the dining room table. Or seeing a piece of banana bread on the kitchen counter and having an impulse to have a piece. These sudden craving, I’m sure everyone can relate to.
Over the past 6 days, I have been seriously pondering if I really do eat out of necessity, meaning that I am genuinely hungry. As a matter of fact each time the urge to chow down on something came up in the past few days, I questioned the motive behind it. Did I want it because I couldn’t have it? Did I want it because I was truly and truthfully hungry? Or was I doing all this out of habit? Was it that the availability and the ease of access to the food made it desirable in an instant of noticing it?
I have to say, more often than not, my sudden urges to grab myself something that was simply lying around on the counter or table or was within sight was really more out of habit than it was out of genuine hunger. The truth is, I have not been really all that hungry. The reason being that I have a lot more fat in my diet now and consuming healthy fats will fill you up. You will feel fuller for longer periods of time. I know in time these urges to eat what I see will subside, making way for more healthy Keto conscious choices.
