Matt hit the nail on the head. Your energy intake is far less than needed for maintaining, regulating, and repairing your body. No periods or libido is a red flag -- it's your body's way of going in to "triage" mode. Since reproduction isn't a top... (more)
Hi, iI have been doing a lose paleo diet for the past few months as a teenager and have felt quite good... Unfortunately, recently I have been trying to gain a bit of weight due to losing too much... At first I got scared and ate a few granola... (more)
Does anyone else eat fat and not get full? I think I have come to the conclusion I can not have fat --ghee,coconut oil, mac oil --in my house. I can eat huge chunks/spoonfuls and still not feel satisified. And yes I do eat it on top of... (more)
The following is the 100% ugly truth: In the last 24 hours, I have literally consumed 15,000-20,000 calories of pure, sugar junk food. It started around 4am last night when I got up to have some greek yogurt. Sleep never came, and the... (more)
Hi everybody! Ive been Paleoing for 3 weeks and just getting over mourning the loss of sugar. I've turned to dark chocolate (90%) thinking that this would be ok, but boy oh boy it's sent me doolally! I've not stopped craving it and have eaten... (more)
I certainly do not make a habit of binging. I don't even have a "cheat" day or meal because I'm someone where if I let myself have a little I'll let myself have a lot. But on the unfortunate circumstances where it does happen, what do you... (more)
Over christmas break there was a period of about 3-4 days where I pretty much just ate all the junk food I wanted. Including lots of chocolate and non-paleo desserts. Then I was sick for one day. Now my stomach has been bloated ever... (more)
because you were sick and it takes 4-6 days after symptoms resolve themselves before you start feeling normal again.
Please help me! I am seventeen and have PCOS and was mostly paleo for a good year and a half. Dropped at 5'4 from 140lbs to all time low of 108 in summer (too low!) and back to a comfortable 112-114. However, I have always had binge eating... (more)
I know, it's always weird to post your body pics and ask random strangers what they think about it, but I really need honest opinions. I'm not an attention seeker. The thing is, mirrors lie to me. http://postimg.org/image/unatlbqp1/ (more)
So I've been dealing with this problem for quite sometime, but it's a bit embarrassing so I've never tried to seek help with it. I have a sugar binge eating problem! About once a week I get a crazy craving for sweet food, allow myself to eat... (more)
Recently had to go to a mandatory luncheon where the only food was premade sandwiches and I was starving so I had two. Already starting to feel a little sick. I've been eating pretty clean paleo, 90%+, but with grains completely cut out. The 10%... (more)
Next time grab 3 or 4 sandwiches and just eat the stuff in the middle. As for what to do after a grain binge, just try to not repeat. Other than that, keep eating clean.
Since I started paleo I've found that I no longer rely on coffee throughout the days and that I can quite happily go without it and have boundless energy. Also I was researching the side effects of caffeine on metabolism, ketosis, mental state... (more)
Ok so I've been strictly paleo for a month and a day now, except for last night, when my demons had their way with me. I totally went off the rails, like TOTALLY. I think the end tally was something like: 2 magnum ice creams 2 drumstick ice... (more)
Hi everyone Since I was born, I've always had a huge appetite. And I mean huge. When I was 7 years old, I could eat an adult's meal without problems. And even though I was never a very active kid, I was never fat. Right now, I can eat, and eat,... (more)
Yesterday I couldn't contain myself. I ate more grain and sugar yesterday than I have in the last 8 months put together. Right now I feel sluggish, I have a headache, I'm extremely hungry but the thought of eating anything is making me want to... (more)

These questions seem to pop up with a disturbingly high frequency on this website. It almost seems as though paleohacks is operating in conjunction to a binge eaters anonymous type deal. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't have any sort of... (more)
Hello! Normally I eat VLC, but I had a binge last saturday, with 1L Coca Cola and some fries. I still don't get it though, as I've still to experience any problems related with the binge. The sunday after - yesterday - i continued fasting, and... (more)
I use to binge eat. I went to O.A for years which did help but it wasn't until I went Paleo that I stopped. I am now thinking it was an addiction to gluten all these years. Anyone else found the same? By the way I don't binge on Paleo food... (more)
Gluten or sugar for me. After months of 100% paleo, I ate a few of my kids jelly beans at easter. I meant to eat 3 or 4. It was like a monster took over and I scarfed an entire bag. Had to go buy them another bag....

Paleohacks is the main forum I post at, so I realize that this may be more of a Paleohacks thing than a Paleo thing. But I am getting seriously disturbed at the amount of eating disorder talk that goes on. To clarify, I'm not talking about people... (more)
Very disturbed as to what the user above has to offer on the subject and I hope it is not indicative of the kind of people that frequent the site...
I'm long overdue for a binge session. It's difficult for me to go home and see all my relatives in my big extended family without relapsing in some way. Nevertheless, I am extremely proud of myself since I've gone over a week so far. The other... (more)
Got a problem folks. Binge eater from way back. Was 130kg, lost a heap, probably half starved myself to 88kg now sitting at a well muscled 95kg. The issue is that the eating disorder rears its head when stressed, bored, insert other emotions... (more)
