I'm a recent convert to the Paleo life style with a fairly active lifestyle (Crossfit, Weightlifting, Running). I'm 33 and I usually one take 1-2 days off a week. My problem has been with my caloric/fat intake. I can't get enough. For instance today I've had 5 eggs cooked in butter, 2 slices of bacon, a serving of chorizo, 4 table spoons of almond butter, 1/2 cup coconut creamer, and a hand full of almonds. And these are just the "fatty" parts of what I've eaten today. There was also some broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, and some chicken. I'm worried that I'm going to take in too much fat or calories in general to lose any of my own fat. Any suggestions/guidance?

I know when I switched to Paleo I felt hungry all the time too. Since fat has more than double the calorie density of protein or carbs you aren't filling your stomach with as much volume. For me it just took a while to adjust.
Honestly 2000 calories is a drop in the bucket for me. I'm about 6 foot 250lbs. Since it's still early days I'm not worrying about calories just yet. I'm just wondering why I'm hungry if the fat is supposed to fill me up?
it seems like you got enough fat. how much are you looking to get? you can eat some coconut oil by the spoon for more.
