What's The Hardest Part of the Ketogenic Diet?

It would be expected that giving up our favorite carbolicious foods would be the greatest challenge when adopting the ketogenic, low carb/high fat (LCHF) diet. It makes sense. Who wants to give up pizza? Not me, I can tell you. Not that I'd go back to where I was just to eat a deep dish pie. But pizza was a huge trigger food for me.

Now, the food itself isn't what I need to control. At least, not the type food. But eating in general is my bigger struggle. Only eating when hungry. Seems simple. But like almost everything concerning humans' relationship with food - it's complicated...


I’ve been fortunate to have exposure to leading researchers, physicians and journalists regarding the ketogenic specifically and LCHF (low carb/high fat) more generally, we are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths. I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning. So, if you have something to add, go for it. Thanks!  - Casey
