Craving...More fats?


Recommended Posts

I'm craving fat.

I've just made ghee, and to be quite honest I could have dived in and splashed about in it.

Now it's cooling and I'm wanting to drink it.

I made Mayo too and could have scoopped it up and eaten it.

Is this just a normal craving for day 5 or should I eat more fat?

Personally I know when I'm too low fat I start craving bacon.  I also crave cheese.  But I don't eat cheese - or dairy for that matter.  But this is how I know that my next meal should have some more fat in it.

 

So definitely add more ghee and/or mayonnaise to your next meal - just don't drink the stuff (I've had this craving too)

About a year before I discovered the Whole30, my doctor tested my cholesterol and it was high. I was determined to bring it down with diet alone, so I cut my daily fat intake down to next to nothing. I brought my cholesterol down, but I was famished all the time. I couldn't stop thinking about butter (I didn't know about ghee yet). I'm so glad I found the Whole30, because eating super low-fat was simply not sustainable.
