For many friends, relatives and partners of those how have taken their own life, suicide is a question of why. Yet they will never get to hear the answer.

When you begin a low carb diet you may instantly be hit with a whole bunch of cravings. You want something salty, you want something sweet, you want something warm and hearty…there are so many things you body and mind may be screaming for! These cravings are perfectly natural and happen to almost everyone who has ever started a diet. The reasoning is simple, you just limited or completely cut out something that your body was used to having. Now, it is all your body wants! It needs! Whatever you focus on in your diet is going to be exactly what you crave.

However, it’s not only the cocktail snack that can contain a lot of carbs. What’s in your glass can be even worse. So what should you choose?

If you like drinks with alcohol once in a while, check out our low-carb alcohol guide.
If you happen to have a craving that it seems like you just can’t satisfy, then you should take a closer look at what that need for a specific food may be telling you. We mentioned how a craving can be a signal of a lacking nutrient or mineral in your diet and, if this craving is not satisfied by simply eating a food high in that nutrient, you may be looking at something more serious. If your yearning is something more strong than the norm, you may want to talk to your doctor. For example, if you have an unquenchable thirst, there may be an issue with your blood sugar levels that you are unaware of. This could even mean diabetes. So a simple thing like feeling thirsty all the time could be a signal of something more major.

Your Paleo Scotch eggs and stuffed avocado look awesome- thank you! I pretty much start out every day with a handful of nuts. I learned this habit from Tim Ferriss in The Four Hour Body. In ‘The End of Overeating’, David Kessler recommends snacking between meals as a strategy for not overeating at mealtimes. Don’t quote me, but I think he suggests 200 to 300 calories snacks and 500-600 calorie meals. I recommend both books.
