low carb vs slow carb

Anyone who has been around the low carb net community knows that there is a common belief that hunger is less low carb. It seems to be true for me. Yet cravings drive me more than hunger. So what about a slow carb diet, that is one in which there are more carbs, but those are slow carb? It appears to reduce cravings in the short run.

When I look at the calories to satiate, it becomes obvious that slow carb seems to have a advantages, if I can still live on three meals each day. More self testing I guess.

But what do I know?


  1. Trying to force myself back into my 18/6 Intermittent Fasting plan, which DID work when I worked it properly...
    But once again I wandered into the kitchen last night - not the least bit hungry, just grazing! Finishing off the dark chocolate, a fistful of almonds - certainly there were far worse things I could've been consuming, but still distressing why I cannot control my appetite.
    May be hormonal since I'm bloated, hot-flashing, insomniac...

  2. When we look at a our behavior with dispassion, it is just insane some days. Our logical mind is just not in control. That is the problem.
