Varying Levels of Hunger?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 13, 2012 at 5:21 PM

Why is it that some days I am starving all day long and eat A LOT and other days, I can go with out eating at all and have no hunger what so ever? Should I listen to my body on those days or should I be consuming about the same amount of food every day? I do eat a very strict Whole30 diet with a wide variety of VLC veggies and lots of meats.

I usually stay away from equating everything to exactly how our ancestors probably lived, but I'll do it just this once: There's probably nothing more *non*-paleo than eating the same amount of food every day, all year. MathGirl's right.

I can relate- For me I think it is hormonal as it varies throughout the month. I also think that my body tends to 'balance out' and knows when it needs more and when it needs less- so I would just listen to your body. Especially if you are eating a healthy and balanced diet- your body should be sending you the right signals.

As a general rule for me personally, a breakfast with a lot of protein and no carbs other than greens or avocado leads to a low hunger day. Even then appetitie fluctuates day to day. I don't worry about it, so long as everything is averaging out weekly.
