Today we’re going to talk about why you might be hungry in the morning while doing keto and intermittent fasting.

There are three main reasons why you would be hungry in the morning while doing keto and intermittent fasting:

1. Between 6 am and 10 am, you have a spike in cortisol. One of the functions of cortisol is to release glucose from your stored sugar. In the morning, if cortisol releases sugar from your liver, you’re going to get a small spike of sugar. After that, your insulin is going to push your sugar down, and when it comes down, you’ll be hungry. If you’re hungry but have no other symptoms, you can ignore the hunger. If you’re hungry and also have other symptoms like moodiness, weakness, or dizziness, you should eat.

2. You could be hungry in the morning because of what you ate the day before, especially the night before. You may have had too many carbs or snacks the day before, and this spiked your insulin. This will then cause your blood sugars to go down, and you’ll mainly feel this the next day. You may have cravings or hunger. This can also occur when you consume wine the night before.

3. You may not have been on the keto program long enough. Sometimes it only takes 3-5 days to get into ketosis, but other times it could take several weeks. A couple of things you can do to help with this transition is to increase more fat with the meal, increase apple cider vinegar mixed in water before each meal (1tbsp. in water), and increase your vegetables.
