So stuffed after a little bit of bacon.

Holy cow (or pig). I just added two slices of regular old bacon to my standard breakfast of greek yogurt with a little bit of honey and almonds and I am STUFFED. I'd always be hungry very soon after I ate the meal... what gives? Is bacon really supposed to make me feel this stuffed? LOL

If you were feeling hungry soon after eating your yogurt/honey/almonds meal, it's almost certainly not well-balanced, macronutrient-wise; it sounds like you were eating too many carbs and not enough protein or fat. Adding the bacon is a good start; you might also want to consider cutting out the honey & possibly the almonds, and adding some veggies instead. A well-assembled paleo meal should keep you full for at least 5-6 hours.

Yogurt makes me ravenous, add something sweet to it, and I find that feeling gets even stronger. My belly can feel quite full, but I'm still crazy hungry. The only way I "solved" that phenomenon was to add a lot of oatmeal to it, but I don't really eat much yogurt or oatmeal anymore.

I can accidentally under eat at breakfast if I start with bacon because just 2-3 pieces can make me feel full. I try to eat a couple eggs or a sausage patty first.

It's just a phase, I think. I encountered something similar and it went away after a while. But don't forget that once you adapt to normal eating patterns (if you had bad habits to start with) then your supposed to be eating a bit less. Always check www.fat-loss-reviews.com for information on diet in general and to see some things that may help you in this case. They got info on Paleo that could benefit.
