Craving Fat

Been staying MC for a year, which caused some weight gain.

Tried going back to VLC in June, but didn't see any progress. So, July 15, I went on a 4 day Fat Fast and cut all alcohol from that same day until this past Thursday. No imbibing last night.

Yesterday and now, I am craving nothing but FAT. Is this because I am now burning fats ? Well, I know I am burning fat now, but I have never experienced craving for fats. In the past, while in full-on ketosis, I would occasionally want something sweet (which would cause "issues" if I caved and cured THAT problem LOL).

Not that I'm complaining, mind you. LOL I just don't know that going straight into another Fat Fast is what I need to be doing. Since Yesterday, I've been on one without even realizing it. Pork rinds, guacamole, pepperoni, coffee w/HWC ... I don't want a steak. (ACK !) But the grilled fat sounds heavenly right now.

This is very weird.

I've been drinking 100 oz of water consistently this past week. I did that in the past when I was losing so well, so I can't see that water would be causing the issue.

Tummy is itching like crazy. That started last night too. Maybe I'm about to be visited by the Whoosh Fairy. It's been so long, I can't remember what to expect.

Some of those foods you listed are salty. Ketogenic folks need a little more sodium than average (especially if hydration is wonky due to alcohol) so if you want to experiment you could try 1-2 cups bouillon broth.
