Allow me to appeal to your immense body of paleo knowledge:
good god i'm eating a lot. no, for real though. like so much. For background, I'm 23, exercise a ton, and I'm really fit, i.e. skinny, all lean muscle, very little body fat.
I've been in the process of going full "paleo" for a year or so now. At first, I was just eating carbs less, but still tons and tons of fruit, nut butters, nuts, etc. then even less carbs, still tons of fruit, naturally sugary stuff, etc. Now I'm at a point where I really do not touch carbs, at all. Once a week I might eat a sandwich or a bowl of cereal or something, but other than that, never, and very little fruit.
My issue is that I am never full. Ever. I eat a ton of different stuff, and I eat pretty much all day, and I'm still not full. generally on sunday, i'll make a massive batch of chili/stew, wherein I'll simmer 15 tomatoes, 5 red onions, 5 bell peppers, jalapenos, butter, tons of spices, pounds of ground meat (beef, bison, lamb, turkey), and 4 eggs. And I'll eat that over the next week. A typical day might look like this:
In the morning, wake up, eat a plate containing a mixture of 5-6 scrambled eggs, an avocado, 4 pieces of bacon, and a few spoonfuls of natural salsa spooned over the top.
Between breakfast and lunch, snacking on 2 hard boiled eggs, maybe more bacon.
Lunch is a big bowl of my chili/stew with 1-2 hard boiled eggs and an avocado in it.
For dinner, a big steak, and a huge side of broccoli fried in butter, with a fried egg on top of it.
And before bed...something else. more eggs, more broccoli, more bacon, more stew, more SOMETHING.
Basically, when I'm not at the gym or at work or sleeping, I'm eating. and i'm STILL NOT FULL. What the hell is wrong with me? Do I just have an absolutely savage metabolism? I understand that's probably a good thing, but honestly, I'm getting kind of sick of eating. And I love eating. I love it. But I'm just always hungry, and I'm always eating and it's becoming a pain in the ass.
So in general my questions are: 1. does anybody have any suggestions regarding why this happens to some people (me) over others? 2. How much does this have to do with my elimination of grains and fruit? 3. Do you think I should reintroduce some carbs to try to combat this? Is this combatable in general? 4. Are you going to tell me to replace some of my protein with specific kinds of veggies to promote fullness? I bet you are. That's cool, I like vegetables. But is that actually going to have any effect? 5. is there anything I can do with regards to my eating schedule, rather than what I'm actually eating?
