What's the trick to curbing sugar cravings?

So how do we communicate effectively with our brains? It's a Know Brainer: consume medium chain fats  first thing in the morning


MCT's, aka healthy fats, are found in coconut and organic grassfed butter.  Satiate your mind and body with fats this Halloween season and avoid unwanted cravings!   These healthy fats immediately metabolize in the liver, sending energy directly to the brain, supplying sustained fuel for your body.


On the contrary, consuming carbohydrates first thing in the morning, while also metabolized in the liver, provides immediate fuel and if not used, is stored as fat in the body. Subsequently, the brain craves more carbs and we eat more until there is no candy corn left. 

Simple vs. Complex Carbs


If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that a low carbohydrate diet can be very beneficial for improving and maintaining proper health.

However, it is important to note that there are two different kinds of carbohydrates that exist. 

Simple Carbs include processed grains and refined sugars.

Complex Carbs include vegetables, fruits, legumes and sprouted grains.

Properly distinguishing between the two kinds of carbs can make or break your journey to health. 

So where does Know Brainer come in?

We support a low-carbohydrate diet with a focus on fats and proteins. There are many different ways to divvy out the proportions for each food group (fats, proteins and carbs), but primarily when on the keto diet, the macronutrient ratio is as such:

  • 60-75% calories at minimum come from healthy and saturated fat.

  • 15-30% daily calories come from protein.

  • 5-10% daily calories come from complex carbohydrates.

There is one main reason the ketogenic and low-carb diet stresses the consumption of complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates: complex carbohydrates are better utilized as fuel for the body, unlike simple carbs that provide no nutrient value and are stored in the body as unwanted fat!
