I've been on paleo for little less than 3 months now - living almost 100% with an occasional "fall of the wagon" moment here and there.
I workout 3-4 times a week - mostly crossfit mixed with some fitness boxing and weightlifting. I'm 5.8 tall, weigh 160lb and fat % around 11%.
I do 3 meals a day with snacks in between (almonds, bananas, red peppers etc.)
Here my problem - sometimes I get extremely hungry at night (9-10pm ish) even after consuming a giant dinner with loads of lean meat and veggies and the feeling of being absolutely full a couple of hours before.
I don't understand it - I thought it might have something to do with my glycogen levels are too low after a heavy workout, but the hunger also comes after days without exercise.
eating another meal when I get hungry at night do help. But I'd rather know why than just eating dinner twice - I do admit that the hunger sometimes turns into cravings for candy, cake and other poisons.
Have any of you experienced anything similar?
