Good fatty meat always tastes the same to me, sure, it’s nicer when I am hungry and my body welcomes the food but the flavors never change. I have this with most food.
I get a stop sign when I focus on meat, quite often. I just suddenly notice I had enough and that’s it. It’s still tasty but I don’t want it and the idea of eating is so wrong I don’t even try. Very interesting phenomenon, I never had that before (I ate no meat on keto and low-carb or only very occasionally so I couldn’t notice it back then. but carbs easily interfere anyway.)
Hmmm odd, I don’t have that on carnivore but it reminds me of people (like me) having a dessert stomach. I had enough of my normal food, I am not hungry anymore so it’s time for dessert! (It’s a habit. I used to have dessert in the end of most of my meals for decades. And I love my desserts.)
I kind of have that on carnivore too, not nearly as often as before, a lot of satiating meat turns this off easily… And it’s just a mental thing for dessert, I definitely don’t want carbs. I eat some cottage cheese or something and I am okay I used coffee for this role too but I quit (day #2 now, I rarely get to this number… sigh).
So maybe it’s that and you can substitute…? But if you specifically want carbs, it may not work…
But maybe it’s just some lingering habit and if you can handle it and not give in, it will go away…? I can’t possibly know.
You can try various carnivore items, maybe some can help? Whatever you individual woe allows. It’s easy for me as I have sweet, very dessert-y stuff like cream nice tempting stuff like some cured pork or sausage… I always can find something when I want some fun bites in the end of my meal. (Sometimes I go a tad further, that’s why I do carnivore-ish. I just couldn’t stick to pure carnivore for long, it just would give me mental anguish and I don’t see the point in my own case. I always worked well with extras if they were kept in very, very tiny amounts. Without them I would quit in no time. I do try to be stricter but I have my limits. They are different every time so my woe gets stricter and looser too. It wouldn’t do to be all relaxed all the time, that’s a slippery slope.)
I thought maybe I shouldn’t write about my abnormal style - but if you think about going back to keto, maybe it can be relevant. Maybe not now, I don’t know what you are ready for at the moment… But staying close to carnivore and doing keto with 40-50g carbs (I can do 40 net, maybe 45 but 50 is probably not keto for me), that can be extremely different. It is for me. I relax a bit when I feel restricted or seriously tempted or just can’t see a better option (I got bored of meat all the time in the first few years. it has just recently changed. I was super hungry and couldn’t stomach anything carnivore… how odd is it to me now…) - but I still stay as close to carnivore as comfortable possible, most of the time. As this is the best to me. My old keto for several days wouldn’t end well for me (well it wouldn’t happen. I would start to eat more carbs after 1-2 days despite I don’t really want carbs but there are some nice stuff and the keto carbs bring ideas).
So maybe something else would be best, not the old keto (though it’s still pretty new in your case), not carnivore if you can’t handle it yet… I don’t even have a fixed woe as that doesn’t suit me. I have a default one but I should be flexible as I can’t force myself into too small boxes, apparently. But I don’t forcefully keep my days relaxed, in the contrary, I go for the strictest comfortable if that still makes sense to me and let carnivore change me more. So being stricter get way easier. And even if I have my wild, very free day when everything is allowed… I still want my pork and eggs, mostly. My ultimate end goal is eating whatever I fancy whenever I want all the time and eating in the ideal way for my body and mind simultaneously. It’s not too bad now but it’s not that perfect yet.
Whatever you will do, good luck to find your sweet spot!
