Georgie123 Posted July 5, 2016 Share Posted July 5, 2016 Hi Guys! It is day 5 of my 2nd whole30 and my goal this round was to finally quit coconut butter (even though I pretty much follow AIP anyway, I feel like I'm addicted to coconut butter which is my biggest food without brakes)! I would always have a few Tbs after lunch and dinner even if I wasn't very hungry. I thought it was the subtle sweetness of the coconut butter I craved after meals but I think I just crave the extra fat?! I have been doing okay without it the past few days but I have just realised myself substituting it with other fats such as extra ghee, coconut milk or fatty cuts of meats! So my question is, how do I stop craving fats after meals and is this normal at all? I already eat a bordlerline ketogenic diet as I have Addison's and have to limit carbs as they lower my cortisol and thus I need to stress dose (temporarily increase my dosage) when I eat carbs (sounds ridiculous I know)! My daily food log generally looks like this: Breakfast150g cooked chicken reheated in coconut oil with cucumber and fermented pickles on the side (and maybe extra ghee)Chai tea with coconut milk Lunch 150g pork burger cooked in coconut oil on a bed of greens with coconut aminos Green tea with coconut milk Dinner - tends to vary a bit but will generally be one of the following: -2 pork spare ribs with zoodles and ghee -150g shredded pork reheated in coconut oil with zoodles and ghee -150g cooked chicken reheated in coconut oil with zoodles and ghee -chicken wings with zoodles, ghee and coconut aminos. I would love to know if anyone else has had this problem or just generally and advice on the matter would be much appreciated!! Thank you!
