    excuse the typing, i have a sleeping child on my lap!

    does anyone else find that bars make them more hungry? i usually have one for lunch, but lately i've found as soon as i have one i crave food. i don't know if it's just the mid afternoon slump or if it's common. only one way to find out i guess....:)

    Hi I personally used to make the bars into a biscuit about 10 then sit and dunk them in my black tea. Especially the lemon and the toffee.
    However the down side with bars is you crunch or chew which makes your stomach feel like your having real food. Tis all in the mind!! From my point of view, Bet others come along with something different!!

    If having a bar makes you hungry, then you know that it is 'head hunger' beyond any doubt - as soon as you get something to "eat" as opposed to a shake, you feel hungry for more, when in fact you are still in ketosis and don't feel hunger.

    So yes, as amythest says, it's all in your mind; the act of 'eating' something makes you want more. Keep telling yourself that, even though it is 'solid', the LL bars are NOT food; none of the LL stuff if food, it is simply a means to deliver the nutrients you need to get through the day.
