Hi guys!

I am super new here and I have IBS and an extremely sensitive gut. Also, my english sucks (sorry!) ;)

I started eating paleo a few weeks ago, but the last sugar accident happened 11 days ago, so this is how far I am at the moment.

my problem is: I am ALWAYS hungry! And eating paleo in Germany is quite pricey when you're a teenager living alone, especially when it comes to grass-fed beef etc.

I am avoiding eggs, nuts, dairy, lots of potatoes or rice and of course sugar & gluten atm. What could i eat? Lot's of veggies are okay but I don't know if my IBS can handle this..

I do. Haha. You can also put it in bone broth, soup, tea, etc.

i can't digest as much fat as other paleos seem to i think this needs to come slowly with the time. tomorrow (when it's saturday and there is no school) i'll try having a breakfast to see what happens to my body. maybe avocado and chicken :)

^ "They shouldn't upset your gut after a while." Should read "Avocados shouldn't upset your gut after a while." I just wanted to make that clear because you said you're German and not English native. Although our languages are quite similar.

But start off your day with as much fat/protein as you can. They keep you feeling full for the longest amount of time. I flat out don't even usually eat any carbs for breakfast. The chicken breast was something to snack on when you do feel hungry. They shouldn't upset your gut after a while. You're still very very new and things are changing for you. Once your body is more settled, it should not be a problem at all!!

If you are having trouble affording grass fed meat, try regular grocery store meat. It's obviously not an ideal solution, but it would give you more food for your budget.

Try roasting all sorts of vegetables in coconut oil. The combination of fat and carbs is satiating. I like brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, parsnip and sweet potato.

Have a serving of this on the side of your animal protein, along with some raw salad (leaves etc). I eat fish with veggies and salad and usually don't experience hunger/cravings.

Why avoid eggs? By far the best bang for your buck food out there.

BUT. . . I always keep cubed chicken breast, and when I started everyday I would eat an ENTIRE avocado. Force it down if you have to. But there's not been a day when I started off with a whole avocado when I ate less and felt better throughout the day.

Best of luck and enjoy your beautiful country!!

I have noticed that liver is rather inexpensive as well as nutritious. However, this is in the United States. I'm not sure about prices in Germany...

I recommend cheaper calorie-dense foods like ground meats, avocado, or coconut products. As for staying away from fibrous veggies while still avoiding starch, well...I'm stumped. It's kind of either-or in the vegetable world. To avoid aggravating your IBS while your body heals, you may want to eat more potatoes or bananas than a paleo person ordinarily would. Then decrease the starch and add in cooked veggies gradually as your digestion improves.

Welcome to paleo. I hope you stick with it, as it tends to work miracles for people in your situation. Oh, and your english is just fine!

A good inexpensive breakfast: Conventional lean meat; a little yam/rice/starch, drowned in a lot of coconut oil/grass fed butter/fat; sauerkraut/kimchi/fermented vegetables; fruit

I'm eating more organ meat as its pretty cheap compared to muscle meat in the UK. And if you use something like lard or tallow to cook with, a fairly liberal dose, that can help. I've tried different diets due to digestion issues and paleo is the one I've felt is most sustainable in terms of not sitting around wanting to eat and not having enough energy, being really hungry, getting dizzy if I don't eat every 4 hours etc. I had a largish breakfast this morning with plenty of fat and actually got through the whole day into the evening without feeling particularly tempted to eat something while I was out which would inevitably have not been paleo.

Fast Food.

Just kidding. I know you are avoiding Dairy but have you ever tried grass-fed butter? Cheap, filling, and tons of health benefits.
