make sure there is no sugar in the bacon! They pack it into everything these days!

also check how much fat you're consuming with the bacon.

another thing is are you actually in ketosis as this is supposed to supress hunger...

Bacon contains large amounts of sodium (salt), so you may be just thirsty. Check it out.

Eat some carbs if you experience the same thing again. It's the only thing you can do.

wouldn't carbs be the worst thing to eat to suppress hunger??

Yeah im gonna go out on a limb here and say it is the grease in the bacon. Maybe eat some eggs or something. Dont worry about cholesterol until your skin starts bagging and your hearing goes. And dont eat carbs or you will just get even more hungry.

I would arttribute it to a hormonal thing. I've had this happen to me before as well. The best I could figure was that sometimes you just get hunger pangs and if you're eating a high fat low carb diet the fat still won't supress those hunger pangs until you fulfill them hunger attacks.

I'd blame the sodium.
