At first when I started out Paleo 5 weeks ago I was hungry as hell ate about 3000 cal a day and that's a lot. Probably gained a little but just figured that I'd deal with that once I've accommodated into paleo. Now I'm barely hungry at all,... (more)
Soup is more filling, but not more satiating. Your stomach will feel full with less total caloric intake with soup, but you will be hungry sooner, as your body will not sense it has received adequate nutrition. Just eat real whole foods, leaning... (more)
My DH seems to be having an issue where the only time he feels full is if he eats red meat, particularly beef. It's actually getting to the point where he gets upset if I prepare chicken (always dark meat) more than once a week. I try to cycle... (more)
I was under the impression that fatty foods satisfied more. This article indicates that fat is bad for satiety - "foods high in fat made people want to eat more", and states that the body stores fat from fatty foods for a rainy day. This seems... (more)
I'm not talking about a meal here, I'm talking about what you eat to get you to the meal you still have to cook. Those easily accessible, snackable, satiating foods you can grab when you're dying of hunger. For some reason I end up eating a lot... (more)
Hello, I am very new - only a couple of days - into the Paleo Diet. I'm not following this to lose weight or body fat, but I'm doing this to be able to stay concentrated for a longer period of time. I'm usually very tired, and I know that sleep... (more)
im mostly a sugar burner (sweet potato, carrots, fruits and rice) because im trying to put on some muscle mass. but on the days where i dont work out, i dont feel as satiated with high fat meals because they dont occupy as near as much volume as a... (more)
What kind of foods do you find most satiating? I have a few male friends of mine that find having a bigass steak with potatoes on the side more satiating than something like, say; a cup of full-fat yoghurt with nuts sprinkled on the top. However I... (more)
So funny, for our staff meeting we had burritos from chipotle brought in. Being Paleo I was kinda hella upset and got moody and hangry. I was able to scrape out about a 1/3 of a cup of steak from a burrito and topped it with a small container of... (more)
Hey everyone! I'm eating vlc and I also read information about intermittent fasting. So I tried it out today and started eating at 1pm. Now does it matter how often you eat? Let's say I eat a meal at 1 and then I was hungry again at 3 does it... (more)
I have an eating disorder (ED-NOS: bulimia, anorexia, binge/purge, orthorexia). I went Paleo 9 months ago, thinking that eating whole foods (plenty of fat, meat and low-carb veggies) and intermittent fasting would restore my hunger/satiety signals... (more)
At 25.7 BMI why do you NEED to lose weight? This is slightly overweight, not morbid obesity, and not enough to raise any health concerns. Don't obsess over it and drift back into disordered eating. Just figure out how to maintain.
I love mince beef and mince lamb, just wondering which one has the most fat? also am i better to go for the cheaper fattier cut than the more expensive lean cut of mince? Thanks.
Does anyone know of good list/index of foods and their relative reward values? I've been looking for a good, definitive source and can't find one I really like. As you might have guess I'm working on my next 30 day experiment. Do you have any... (more)
"Reward" isn't a scalar quantity: it's a product of several distinct biochemical motivations, many of which are subjective -- being dependent on the individual's nutritional and metabolic state, and their cultural background -- and many of which... (more)
Do you need to embrace hunger pains or should you have the feeling of not being hungry? The hunger hormone Ghrelin is tightly connected with growth hormone. Recent studies have also shown that high levels of hunger or ghrelin in the body... (more)
Not according to this study. Dietary fat and appetite: similarities and differences in the satiating effect of meals supplemented with either fat or carbohydrate. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17539869 This is in contrast to to what I... (more)
I'm not saying I eat until I can't move or fall into a food coma on a regular basis, but I find if I eat a lot of food (where I know I'm full but there's still food on my plate and I have to force the last couple bites down), it'll help keep... (more)
One downside I could see would be a gradual increase in gastric capacity, which would mean an ever-increasing volume of food would be required in order to reach a point of satiety. The goal posts would keep moving, if you will. The obese tend to... (more)
Hello! Ok. Let me start by saying that I'm a bit of a worry-pot and hypochondriac, and a lot of people will probably think this rather silly, especially as its not something that's causing me any particular discomfort. I'll probably also piss... (more)
One of the low reward strategies proposed by Stephan is to 'eat gently cooked food', as in boiling and gentle steaming over roasting, grilling, frying. I have found this to be the case. For example take some potato, mash it with some fat and it's... (more)
Caramelized sugars, changes to protein structure, the formation of unique compounds, etc. all create that meaty crust that we find so appealing. Food scientists are hard at work trying to uncover what exactly makes "browning compounds" so... (more)
I've been experimenting with different breakfast foods while on the leptin reset. According to the nutrition label, pork rinds should be very satiating as they are high in protein and fat. However, I ate half a bag (approximately 30 grams of... (more)
Notice how they (typically) say "Not a significant source of protein" on the back even though the gram amount is high? There's something about the actual protein (i.e. amino acids) in pork rinds that your body does not absorb it.
I can't sate my hunger with conventional paleo foods no matter what amount I take in. For example, the dinner I just had consisted of: 46g. spinach, 49g. celery, 88g. cauliflower, 116g. broccoli (all in a salad, tossed with 3tbsp. flaxseed oil)... (more)
If you are young and active, I would guess that adding some starchy veggies to that meal might help. Try some winter squash, yam, or the like with some butter and see how you feel...And I do think that at three weeks in, that your body would... (more)
There's a question on satiety regarding this matter, but my question is somewhat different. http://paleohacks.com/questions/63996/is-liquid-less-satiating#axzz1ZJgRDmxK After I bought my crockpot, I've been having huge postworkout meals with... (more)
here's something i've noticed: if i scramble or just fry three eggs in coconut oil or butter, they fill me up much less than if i eat three hard boiled eggs without the added fat. there's something about hard boiled eggs that's uniquely filling,... (more)
Fellow paleo dieters. I have been doing paleo exactly 1 day over a week. I have noticed my energy is through the roof. I am feeling absolutely fantastic. But one thing i dont understand is -Why am i not hungry? Where has my appetite gone?
When you limit your carbs you switch over to burning your own body fat for energy. Your body is getting part of its fuel from your own fat so there is less need to eat.
I've been paleo on and off for several months. During that time, I've experienced a variety of foods that I either love or hate, and have gone through some cycles of craving certain SAD foods. I did the 30 day challenge, and after about day 10,... (more)
