So I've tried to go Paleo and have failed many times, but I think going Paleo could really improve my health and I like the science behind it I'd atleast like to give it a honest 40 day trial. I attribute my failures to the fact that I almost NEVER feel full.. Started another go at Paleo and I'm on day six...Don't think I've been legitamately full in six days.. I might be full for an hour or so but it never last. I'm an ectomorph and work out three times a week too if that helps you give more advice.

Watch your PUFA intake...

Let me give you an example of my daily intake.


3 scrambled eggs, .5 tbsp butter and 2 pieces thick cut bacon. If I workout that morning I also include 1lb sweet potato with .5 tbsp butter


Burrito bowl with lettuce, grilled chicken roughly 8 ounces, 4 tbsp guacamole, onion and salsa


6-8 cups of mixed green salad with goat cheese, olive oil vinegar Dijon and salt dressing. .5lb-1lb grass fed ground beef patties med rare. Usually a 1lb sweet potato with .5 tbsp butter.

I also completely cut out coconut oil, and my daily 1-1.5large avocado due to the high PUFA content. Also don't go crazy with adding tons of fat to your diet. By all means eat good cuts of meat but there is absolutely no need to take 3 tbsp of coconut oil to the face. Don't go crazy with fruit I personally don't eat any fruit which helps me stay full.

honestly, i eat that much if not more every day and that's what it takes me to feel full. when i first went very low carb (no starches and 1 piece of fruit per day) i was hungry all the time. i'd wake up at 4 am and eat a meal and again at 9 am. i just was not satiated. this went on for a few weeks until i was used to the low carb. i've added in starches now and feel better eating those.

Today for example (this is just a list off the top of my head in no particular order) I've ate three whole and two egg whites, 85/15 grass fed beef hamburger patty, about three to four servings of chcken tenderloins, two spinach and kale salads, a few handfuls of broccoli, peas, three kiwis, two bananas, two apples, a serving of pineapple, two serving of walnuts, and some mushrooms sauteed in coconut oil and two pieces of 90% dark chocolate... I SHOULD start using the coconut oil more often but can't find many recipes and it wouldn't kill me to throw in an avocado.

6 days is way too soon to make any decision. It took me about 2 weeks to ease into a paleo diet. During those two weeks, I ate as much as I wanted, as long as it was paleo-approved. Once my insulin levels and gut flora adjusted, I didn't feel as hungry as before, and I was able to scale down my eating.

Can you be more specific about what you're eating? Perhaps a daily menu example?

N=1 I need lots of high quality fat (from coconut oil, avocados, steak, eggs, ghee, fatty fish such as mackerel or salmon) to feel satiated. I also find eating a protein rich breakfast upon waking an easy way to keep my blog sugar/hunger pangs away.
