I came across paleo while i was looking for a medecine free way to rid myself of chronic acid reflux. I have had it for 18 years, it started when i was 12. I Also have been so tired every day for as long as I can remember that I could always fall asleep anytime, anywhere, even while driving. Seemed like paleo might help with that too. So I hopped on it last Saturday morning and have been 100% since.
By Sunday, the heartburn was gone. Crazy energy, never really hungry but I kept doing 3 meals a day anyways. Until yesterday. I had bfast at 6:30 am and never felt hungry all day so I didn't eat dinner until 7:30 pm and felt amazing all day with high energy levels and accomplished so much. Same thing happened today. And the fat is melting away from my midsection.
From what I have read, people seem to think that once you can go awhile without eating and not feel any I'll effects. It means you are probably fat adapted. I just didn't imagine it happening so fast. Or maybe this is just something else

Your body is saying thank you for giving it a chance to work on the fuel you gave it before shoving more in. Quality beats quantity in this case - no more sugar and bad carbs. I don't know the timing on "fat adapted", seems like a week is awful short to be spiking the ball in the end zone. Try sticking with a fasting routine, I like 16 hours between dinner and my next meal . . . brunch.
