Hi, I'm just wondering what you guys eat inbetween meals when in the induction stage. Today I just wanted a snack but couldn't think of anything quick and easy :confused:. Also, how do you combat nasty choc cravings or do I just have to wait for these to go? Thanks in advance!!

For snacks: pieces of cheese, pepperami's, bits of cooked meats, some prawns in a bit of mayo etc, etc.

As for cravings, they will pass but it's really tough if you're anything like me! I've started taking a chromium supplement that's meant to help suppress sugar cravings.

pork crunch and pork scratchings are a great snack. mini baby bell cheese, pepperami's.
as for the sugar cravings then try having a glass of coke zero and see if that helps!

I have sugar free jelly when I get choc cravings, and snack mostly on bits of cheese or pork crunch...I don't really snack that much now because I'm just not hungry enough now I'm in ketosis.

i have celery dipped in peanut butter, this is gorgeous, but make sure you count your carbs :)
i have (in desperate times) had a small piece of 85% coco chocolate (green n blacks) as that is low carb, but i would not recommend it in the initial induction phase as its to detox the suger etc out of your system. I only did it after the second week when everyone around me was gorging and i thought its better then having a full blow out :)

Guys, what is pork crunch??
pork crunch is very much like pork scratchings but has less carbs and no hairs so is much better. can find them right next to the scratchings in the supermarkets

Cook up meat and use that to pick at, I love salami and cream cheese or any cheese rolled up. You will find that you dont feel hungry after a while and the urge to pick totally goes. Most of us are finding it hard to eat as we dont get hungry

I don't think we have pork scratchings over here :( I also hate 'plastic cheese' so babybels and cheese strings are out :(
I usually put some parma ham in the oven to crisp it up and munch on that during the day. It's also much cheaper from lidl or aldi than any of the other supermarkets.
Tuna mayo is another great stand by.

Pepperami or jerky, along with mini snack cheeses, scratchings are out because they are moreish and have way too much fat. Coke zero, jelly and chupa chups for my sugar cravings. I have also ordered some low carb cake mix and cakes online as I have been having massive cravings for cake.

MIM's with a bit of cocoa powder are good for chocolate cravings

Pork crunch eewwww!
Scratchings every time & bit of pig hair won't hurt, lol.

I tried pork crunch, but it tasted like polystyrene!

What about cheese crisps? Put some grated cheese onto greaseproof paper and cook until bubbly and brown. Take out of oven and cool. Yum. Been thinking about using marmite cheddar for these.
