Does anyone else eat fat and not get full? I think I have come to the conclusion I can not have fat --ghee,coconut oil, mac oil --in my house. I can eat huge chunks/spoonfuls and still not feel satisified. And yes I do eat it on top of... (more)
Hi everybody! Ive been Paleoing for 3 weeks and just getting over mourning the loss of sugar. I've turned to dark chocolate (90%) thinking that this would be ok, but boy oh boy it's sent me doolally! I've not stopped craving it and have eaten... (more)
Please help me! I am seventeen and have PCOS and was mostly paleo for a good year and a half. Dropped at 5'4 from 140lbs to all time low of 108 in summer (too low!) and back to a comfortable 112-114. However, I have always had binge eating... (more)
I know, it's always weird to post your body pics and ask random strangers what they think about it, but I really need honest opinions. I'm not an attention seeker. The thing is, mirrors lie to me. http://postimg.org/image/unatlbqp1/ (more)
Ok so I've been strictly paleo for a month and a day now, except for last night, when my demons had their way with me. I totally went off the rails, like TOTALLY. I think the end tally was something like: 2 magnum ice creams 2 drumstick ice... (more)
Since I started paleo I've found that I no longer rely on coffee throughout the days and that I can quite happily go without it and have boundless energy. Also I was researching the side effects of caffeine on metabolism, ketosis, mental state... (more)
Yesterday I couldn't contain myself. I ate more grain and sugar yesterday than I have in the last 8 months put together. Right now I feel sluggish, I have a headache, I'm extremely hungry but the thought of eating anything is making me want to... (more)
Hey everyone. I was just wondering about cheat meals and being paleo. I am an active then girl who does paleo mostly 85-90% of the time...but sometimes, im with friends and they will have brownies or icecream and I just have to have some! I'm not... (more)
I've been on the paleo diet for a week and lost the 5 lbs that no amount of oatmeal/treadmill could ever take off. I've eaten 2 meals/day composed of organic meat/produce. Problem is I went to the grocery store today, bought a big chunk of dark... (more)
Hello! Normally I eat VLC, but I had a binge last saturday, with 1L Coca Cola and some fries. I still don't get it though, as I've still to experience any problems related with the binge. The sunday after - yesterday - i continued fasting, and... (more)
I use to binge eat. I went to O.A for years which did help but it wasn't until I went Paleo that I stopped. I am now thinking it was an addiction to gluten all these years. Anyone else found the same? By the way I don't binge on Paleo food... (more)
Gluten or sugar for me. After months of 100% paleo, I ate a few of my kids jelly beans at easter. I meant to eat 3 or 4. It was like a monster took over and I scarfed an entire bag. Had to go buy them another bag....
Hey, Got some questions :0 I have a 'histamine' intolerance recently diagnosed. After just avoiding high histamine foods and trigger foods, I experienced no relief and continued on searching for the problem. Come to find out I had a... (more)
Paleohacks is the main forum I post at, so I realize that this may be more of a Paleohacks thing than a Paleo thing. But I am getting seriously disturbed at the amount of eating disorder talk that goes on. To clarify, I'm not talking about people... (more)
Very disturbed as to what the user above has to offer on the subject and I hope it is not indicative of the kind of people that frequent the site...
I'm long overdue for a binge session. It's difficult for me to go home and see all my relatives in my big extended family without relapsing in some way. Nevertheless, I am extremely proud of myself since I've gone over a week so far. The other... (more)
Got a problem folks. Binge eater from way back. Was 130kg, lost a heap, probably half starved myself to 88kg now sitting at a well muscled 95kg. The issue is that the eating disorder rears its head when stressed, bored, insert other emotions... (more)
Short background: I'm eighteen. All my life, even before I took up rhythmic gymnastics, I ate tons of junk food / fast food / wheat noodles everyday. Of course I ate meat and veggies and good stuff too. I never watched what I ate though, or cared... (more)
Some background: About 5 months ago I had a 1 month long collision with anorexia and bulimia, which turned into 4 months of extreme constant binging and overeating, especially of bready carbs, sugar, and peanut butter (somehow I gained less than 5... (more)
Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.
Hi everyone, Uhm well I want to keep this rather brief so ill jump right into it :P been paleo/primal for like 8 months straight and pretty much have kept it 99% strict and been going really well my health fitness and overall everything has... (more)
2-3 days to get back into keto- and 1-2 weeks to get rid of the extra lbs and water retention. Drink green tea with lemon and ginger for cleansing and digestive properties and get back on that wagon :)
I'm also thinking hormones. Have you have a hormone panel done? Spotting can be a sign of excess estrogen (or lack of progesterone) and that can certainly feed into cravings.
Ok I have been asking A LOT but you guys have been very helpfuls. 15, 5'7", 107 pounds, no period since 13 workout 20-30 mins hiit/intervals 30-1.5 hours lifting 5 days a week Lately I have been overeating, but only on paleo foods. Delicious... (more)
Ok, I'll go first: anything starchy and sugary. The sweeter, the better. Combination of cream and caramel makes me drool like Tom (Jerry's friend). If I don't touch those for a while, the cravings seem to go. But if I so much as put a drizzle of... (more)
I have found if I eat too much simple carbs/starch with Paleo, I will begin to crave sugar. Two or three servings a day (of safe starches or sugary fruit) for several days in row will suffice to start the cravings. If however I rigorously stay... (more)
I have been tryin to stick to a paleo diet , grains or legumes is not the problem for me , i literally never crave them . However i am constantly binging on dairy foods , mainly pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons from the chinese restaurant ,... (more)
pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons.., general tso chicken BTW, all three are heavy in grains and sugars which are far worse (imo) than dairy. Perhaps you are using these as cravings for wheat/sugar unknowingly...
I haven't got a good relationship with food. I've been in denial for the most part, but now I've finally had to realise how bad it's getting. I started paleo about a month ago. First week - felt great, had lost weight. But I was a little...TOO... (more)
Hi ! My question is: Is is possible to gain muscle just by increasing fat intake? The story: I have been on/off paleo for about 1 year (off due to binge eating/bulimia). In the last 3 months I have reduced the binging to 2 days a week (binging... (more)
I have noticed a ton of questions regarding binge eating lately on PH. I always read them since I can relate with a lot of them. Melissa has written before about how people with food addiction or prone to binge eating "struggle. They give up.... (more)
Dialing in my Magnesium supplementation has nipped my chocolate binges in the bud. I used to eat a whole bar of dark chocolate every day and now am content with 20 g or less.
