I’m fairly new to the whole keto thing. I have lost weight and have less brain fog amongst a number of really positive benefits from following the regime.
I have completed many century rides with a traditional higher carb diet and would want to some day be doing the same fat adapted. My last few rides have seen me slowly pushing distance up whilst resisting the urge to reach for the ‘emergency’ energy bar.
My question is related to a semi fasted state ride. Yesterday at 4pm I rode for 30 miles and did over 2000ft elevation on a smoothie containing coconut milk, full fat Greek yogurt spinach and blueberries which I had at 12:30 pm. Not long in I had a slight hunger knock which I satisfied with drinking electrolyte water. Are these hunger pangs typical of a normal ride or if fat adapted would you expect to feel ‘fuller’ through the ride?
Any guidance or tips would be appreciated.
