At first when I started out Paleo 5 weeks ago I was hungry as hell ate about 3000 cal a day and that's a lot. Probably gained a little but just figured that I'd deal with that once I've accommodated into paleo. Now I'm barely hungry at all,... (more)
Soup is more filling, but not more satiating. Your stomach will feel full with less total caloric intake with soup, but you will be hungry sooner, as your body will not sense it has received adequate nutrition. Just eat real whole foods, leaning... (more)
My DH seems to be having an issue where the only time he feels full is if he eats red meat, particularly beef. It's actually getting to the point where he gets upset if I prepare chicken (always dark meat) more than once a week. I try to cycle... (more)
I was under the impression that fatty foods satisfied more. This article indicates that fat is bad for satiety - "foods high in fat made people want to eat more", and states that the body stores fat from fatty foods for a rainy day. This seems... (more)
I'm not talking about a meal here, I'm talking about what you eat to get you to the meal you still have to cook. Those easily accessible, snackable, satiating foods you can grab when you're dying of hunger. For some reason I end up eating a lot... (more)
I recently discovered that VLC is NOT for me and i'm not even convinced that it's the magic in terms of weight loss either (starting to think moderate carb, no fruit/or some berries, the right amount of calories works better for me)... but anyways... (more)
Sometimes I feel like I cannot be satiated on just paleo...I feel like if I add a piece of bread to the end of my meal when I don't feel "complete" I will feel more satiated. Does anyone else feel this way? Can be wheat be satiating?
What kind of foods do you find most satiating? I have a few male friends of mine that find having a bigass steak with potatoes on the side more satiating than something like, say; a cup of full-fat yoghurt with nuts sprinkled on the top. However I... (more)
So funny, for our staff meeting we had burritos from chipotle brought in. Being Paleo I was kinda hella upset and got moody and hangry. I was able to scrape out about a 1/3 of a cup of steak from a burrito and topped it with a small container of... (more)
This may be a naive question; I usually eat 4 eggs/4 pieces of bacon for breakfast 3-4 times/week, and usually it's not a problem, I can "scarf it" down. Lately, I'm noticing that I am less incline to eating my entire meals. One thing I have... (more)
I love mince beef and mince lamb, just wondering which one has the most fat? also am i better to go for the cheaper fattier cut than the more expensive lean cut of mince? Thanks.
So, as much as I previously extolled the virtues of having a complete diet and not taking a multi, I've recently (past 3 weeks or so) experimented with adding a half-dosage of a very high-concentration multivitamin to my diet. This multi is made... (more)
Does anyone know of good list/index of foods and their relative reward values? I've been looking for a good, definitive source and can't find one I really like. As you might have guess I'm working on my next 30 day experiment. Do you have any... (more)
"Reward" isn't a scalar quantity: it's a product of several distinct biochemical motivations, many of which are subjective -- being dependent on the individual's nutritional and metabolic state, and their cultural background -- and many of which... (more)
Do you need to embrace hunger pains or should you have the feeling of not being hungry? The hunger hormone Ghrelin is tightly connected with growth hormone. Recent studies have also shown that high levels of hunger or ghrelin in the body... (more)
Not according to this study. Dietary fat and appetite: similarities and differences in the satiating effect of meals supplemented with either fat or carbohydrate. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17539869 This is in contrast to to what I... (more)
I'm not saying I eat until I can't move or fall into a food coma on a regular basis, but I find if I eat a lot of food (where I know I'm full but there's still food on my plate and I have to force the last couple bites down), it'll help keep... (more)
One downside I could see would be a gradual increase in gastric capacity, which would mean an ever-increasing volume of food would be required in order to reach a point of satiety. The goal posts would keep moving, if you will. The obese tend to... (more)
I've been experimenting with different breakfast foods while on the leptin reset. According to the nutrition label, pork rinds should be very satiating as they are high in protein and fat. However, I ate half a bag (approximately 30 grams of... (more)
Notice how they (typically) say "Not a significant source of protein" on the back even though the gram amount is high? There's something about the actual protein (i.e. amino acids) in pork rinds that your body does not absorb it.
I can't sate my hunger with conventional paleo foods no matter what amount I take in. For example, the dinner I just had consisted of: 46g. spinach, 49g. celery, 88g. cauliflower, 116g. broccoli (all in a salad, tossed with 3tbsp. flaxseed oil)... (more)
If you are young and active, I would guess that adding some starchy veggies to that meal might help. Try some winter squash, yam, or the like with some butter and see how you feel...And I do think that at three weeks in, that your body would... (more)
There's a question on satiety regarding this matter, but my question is somewhat different. http://paleohacks.com/questions/63996/is-liquid-less-satiating#axzz1ZJgRDmxK After I bought my crockpot, I've been having huge postworkout meals with... (more)
here's something i've noticed: if i scramble or just fry three eggs in coconut oil or butter, they fill me up much less than if i eat three hard boiled eggs without the added fat. there's something about hard boiled eggs that's uniquely filling,... (more)
Fellow paleo dieters. I have been doing paleo exactly 1 day over a week. I have noticed my energy is through the roof. I am feeling absolutely fantastic. But one thing i dont understand is -Why am i not hungry? Where has my appetite gone?
When you limit your carbs you switch over to burning your own body fat for energy. Your body is getting part of its fuel from your own fat so there is less need to eat.
I've been paleo on and off for several months. During that time, I've experienced a variety of foods that I either love or hate, and have gone through some cycles of craving certain SAD foods. I did the 30 day challenge, and after about day 10,... (more)
My 23 month old son has an enormous appetite on some days, and others he could care less for food. On the days when he has an appetite he can eat more than me in a sitting (sometimes he eats his portion and then half of mine). I have been... (more)
What are people drinking? The bone broth itself? Or the soup you made with the broth? If you're drinking the actual broth, that would be fairly concentrated in terms of fat and cartillage, depending on whether you used marrow or small bones. ... (more)
So I think I'm starting to figure out where I'm going wrong with my weight loss plateau. I cut out dairy except for ghee which didn't help, but I did realize the dairy was giving me indigestion so it's out. It think I'm still having satiety... (more)
