All that food sounds like a good snack. I'm 130 pounds, for reference.

Agreed! Are you having any good fats with your meals, or is that 1oz of nuts your main fat for the day? If that's your main dose of fat, you need MORE FAT. What kind of dressing are you having with the salad? Make a vinaigrette and use good olive oil, or throw some avocado in.

Stop eating diet food. Turkey and chicken breast and salad won't satisfy. Eat red meat with the fat on. Have an avocado or some macadamia nuts.

Eat more, especially more fat. Veggies are good, but they'll only fill you up for a short time--they won't sustain you. Fat, combined with protein, will.

More meat, heartier vegetables, and more fat. Get some avocado and coconut oil in there. For vegetables, try mushrooms, broccoli, and cauliflower--they're very satiating. If you're trying to sate a sweet tooth, try some high-nutrition, low-GI fruits.

i was WICKED hungry when i first started, for the first month really. i think it's a blood sugar thing when adjusting to the lack of cereal/cracker/candy/ice cream that used to mainline towards my trap. keep it up, and try new things for you. i tried high fat for a while and i felt so awful on it, but many here claim it's their ticked to food-freedom, so to each his own. i learned i NEED starch or i am a crazy person. it is the key to maintaining energy levels and sating my crazy hungry. keep trying! there are many shades of paleo for the many kinds of eaters.

I just went paleo as well. Today is day 5. I have found myself to be much hungrier even though I am eating a ton. I stopped counting calories. I tried to count them, but it messes with your mind. My guts feel better even after only 5days. I do worry about feeling so hungry, but I am told that goes away. I snack on hard boiled eggs, a lot. And this is kind of weird, but I hate bananas, and for the last 3days, I have HaD to have one with some natural peanut butter. Today, that kept me full for awhile. I plan to stick it out.

Day 5 was the worst for me, but I found that Bananas, Pears, and Apples were my magic bullets for when I am still hungry after a meal. Now (a few weeks later) I am not really all that hungry and I have started to just not eat lunches becuase I just was not hungry. I am loosing weight and I feel terrific. Yes, the hunger sucks...but stick with it and you will be right as rain as soon as you figure out the right balance for you.

I was hungry a lot when I started out, partly it was the adjustment to removing whole grains, partly I think I wasn't eating enough protein at breakfast. Now (4 months later) I easily go 5-6 hrs between meals and just eat three meals a day, no snacks. The key for me is plenty of protein and/ or fat at breakfast. So, today for example:

Breakfast: 125g turkey mince, two eggs, spinach, mushrooms, broccoli - all cooked in about 1 T coconut oil

Lunch: leftover chicken breast wrapped in pancetta, leeks (cooked in butter + pancetta fat), 1/4 an avocado, a few cherry tomatoes

Dinner: bowl of chilli (fatty beef mince, tomatoes, spices), roasted cauliflower

I'm a 5'7" female, 138lbs.

What kind of veggies are you eating? I find that leafy greens can fill me up to satiety rather quickly. I'm hungry a lot too - but I also find that my hunger is sometimes more often than not, thirst. I drink a lot of water if it's not meal time :) Try that?
