Getting full on meat or vegetables

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hey guys,

Sorry if this is a silly question but I've been wondering about this for the last few weeks

I notice sometimes when I'm eating dinner I get really full really quickly. When I know this is going to happen am I better off eating all the meat before I'm too full for anything else or the vegetables.

I've generally been eating the meat but that is more due to the economic side of things as meat can be expensive and I don't like wasting it where as the veggies I can normally use the next day.

Not sure if it's relevant but I have about 13kg more to lose :)

I'm kind of OCD about it. I always eat one thing at a time and in this order- vegetables, then meat, then carbs. Of course, this doesn't apply to sushi or things of that nature.

Cooked meat generally keeps quite well in the fridge for several days in my experience, so why not have some of both and save leftovers of both?

I'd suggest making things like stew or stir-frys that are an even amount of meat to vegetables. That way you can save leftovers and not have to sacrifice having meat for both meals. You can spread out everything. You can also buy meat on sale and freeze it. Most meats will keep for months, versus vegetables that don't freeze that well.

I found the paleo diet to dramatially reduce my appetite in general. I find it easy to skip meals and to have small meals, for example coffee with a little cream can get me through until lunch. Naturally, i lost weight and girtth, not because i was hungry and not eating, but because i just wasn't hungry. I am still very active, healthy, work out 3-4x per week, but just eat less. It has been interesting really but obviously much better for me.

What people said here is pretty good from the economical sense, but you also have to make sure you get enough protein.

I sometimes get that problem where I'm starting to get full of mostly veggies (happened tonight actually), but I still kept on eating the meat I portioned for myself. I still have a good amount leftover to make 2 meals, but I know that I worked out hard today and need to give my muscles the necessary protein to recover.

Just to clear I'm following a strict paleo diet right now otherwise I'd supplement with a protein shake. Either way make sure you're getting all the benefits of a well rounded Paleo meal. I think that's what's most important.

what about alternating? - one day do mostly meat, the next mostly veg. like 80%-20% or even 90%-10%. That way you don't get tired of the same ratios. If you want to lose weight you don't want too much protein either, apparently, so I woudln't necessarily prioritize it at every meal.
