And then I ate lasagna last night.
The real problem is that since I'm off campus and I don't have a car, I literally have to bike/walk several miles a day, which along with my gym routine makes me so active that I have mad hunger cravings. Should I just listen to my body and try to eat healthy when I get such cravings, or is it a sign of a more systemic problem?
Often time, when you have sugar craving, it's basically means your brain needs fuel.
Despite what mark sisson likes to bullshit, your body CANNOT synthesize enough sugar to sustain your brain. Your brain actually use quite a bit of calories...around 25 percent. At certain point, you need carb "refeed" mainly to feed your brain. So yes, small doses of sugar is good for your brain but mainly try to eat healthy imo.
Gluconeogenesis (from Amino Acids).
Some people adapt to low carb very well. Some don't. Depends mainly on BF and genetics. (Former) Fatties tend to fare better on lower carbs. But as it depends on your reactions.
I dont see how anyone can adapt to low carbs. By low carbs i mean less than 30 grams per day. Everyone on a ketosis diet feel like complete shit. That is because their brain is screaming out SUGAR!! That's not to say you should consume hundreds of grams of carbs in one meal and spike your insulin, but small doses of good complex carb is needed imo.
A lot of Protein sources (beef eg) "spikes" Insulin more than Carbs. And quite some people do adapt. Everybody isn't you.
