Some people have mentioned various phases they have progressed through during the continuing months of eating paleo. For instance, for myself, I noticed that at first, I was very hungry on paleo and snacked often, but still lost weight. Then as the months passed, I could go longer and longer without hunger or any obvious side effects (no fatigue, etc). Also, at first I craved protein and fat. Then I just craved fat. And now just recently, I crave fat much less than previously. So what kinds of phases and craving changes have others passed through while eating paleo?
I was WAP for about four years. Low on grains for WAP but did a lot of dairy, and occasional grains and nuts.
Went paleo but kept dairy in for about one month of time.
Quit all dairy and have never gone back.
Decided to selfexperiment and went all-animal-product, ie no plant matter, for three months.
Have now come back to straight paleo, ie no grains, no dairy, good meat, good mostly green veg. As an aside, just to keep omega6s low i don't eat any nuts or seeds either.
Time-line of my diet's progression:
In the future I plan of dropping the butter and trying a diet where I eat only pemmican for lunch and slow-cooked low-heat high-fat stews for dinner.
Any tips? I've been lower-carb for just over a month, and paleo (plus occasional dairy) for 2 weeks. I don't really crave anything over the last few days, because I am so satiated on so little food. Butter tastes nice when I eat a little solid, and a few things really taste good (cheeseburger with butter) but food in general is a bit less appealing.
Well in the beginning, I still had a carbish diet. I was pretty hungry, and always snacked. I also ate a lot of almonds and fruit. then I learned to like fat, but I would binge on it too much. I am binging less now, and have recently upped my starch a la perfect health diet. I had wicked dark chocolate cravings in the middle too, and thankfully those seem to have subsided. I also ate a lot of bacon in the beginning/middle, but it doesn't really appeal all that much to me anymore.
