I'm a 16 year old high school student. I started reading about Paleo a short while ago and have been trying to get on the bandwagon since, but I keep falling off. I'll be fine in the morning, make a few eggs, maybe some bacon, and then not feel hungry until way past lunch. But by the end of the day I'm chugging milk and scarfing down peanut butter. I keep wanting to eat, even though I'm not hungry and know I don't need to.
I think the biggest problem is having all of this terrible food in my house (my family doesn't berate me for my diet, but they sure haven't changed theirs). I don't have the willpower to resist all of it. My family will not buy anything but 1% milk to drink, so that's what I end up drinking. Almond butter is too expensive; I end up bingeing on blended legumes. I've successfully cut out all wheat/grains from my diet, but sugar is another matter. We usually have apples and clementines (delicious little sugar balls) around, and when school lets out…they're just too tempting. I usually go without more than 10g of sugar until about ~4:30 or so, when I get home, and then I binge and eat more than a hundred. I'm sure that I can't cut out snacking as easily as I did grains, but I'd like to eat snack-y things that won't keep me addicted to sugar! I know I won't be successful in staying paleo long-term until I kick this habit. Help me out, PaleoHackers.
