Hormones dictating hunger?

Answered on January 28, 2015
Created March 02, 2012 at 1:19 AM

I have been feeling ravenous the last couple days eating way way over my maintenance calories( all paleo foods) ... What effects does this have on weight loss?

How can I get my hormones lined back up and regulate my normal hunger levels?

I feel like I've undone all my hard work... I don't know why?

If we could finally, for once and for all, figure out the causes of unreasonable, excess hunger, we could retire as very wealthy people, Paleo4ever. I think it's an almost-infinitely multi-factoral paradigm that is nearly impossible to nail down.

Stress, hormones, the season, the food in your house..... I think we could go on and on for a long time listing the possible culprits.

I think it's gonna hurt your weight loss efforts.

You may need more calories that you think. I am currently breastfeeding and so appreciate "hormonal hunger". I am eating a LOT of calories and while I am not losing weight and I am also not gaining weight. I think most calorie calculators are pretty ridiculous in low-ball estimates, especially if you are active.

Too many calories = weight gain. Doesnt matter if they are paleo or not. Couple of days wont matter in the whole scheme of things.

This is definitely an area in which we differ from person to person and a person differs from day to day.

As a non-professional, all I dare say is that if you do it only once in a while it might actually help your weight loss. Some people including me find it's good to vary the routine from time to time--seems to josh the body into giving up a little more stored fat. But only if it's very short term--for me, that's one or two days max. And I also practice fasting on a regular basis so it works both ways.

I won't offer a guess on the hormones; I'll leave that for others.
