In this video, we’re going to talk about why you crave carbs late at night.

Why are you craving carbs at night? The number one cause of carb cravings at night is not being in ketosis.

When you’re in ketosis, you don’t crave carbs, and you don’t feel hungry at night.

Cravings for carbs at night are a sign that you had a meal earlier in the day (or the night before) with too many carbs.

A blood sugar imbalance due to high-carb foods can affect your body for days—even if you’re on a keto diet for the rest of your meals.

How to curb your carb cravings:

1. Consume fewer than 30g carbs per day

2. Skip breakfast

3. Add more fat to your meals

4. Add more potassium to your meals with large salads

I like to add a large salad before each meal to help supply potassium and other important nutrients that help keep cravings at bay.
