My husband and I just started eating Paleo 2 weeks ago and are really enjoying it so far. I've lost 5 pounds and am feeling much better all around, however I know I'm not taking in nearly enough calories. I take Adderall for ADHD and it completely wrecks my appetite. I generally take in less than 1,000 calories a day; all made up of veg, meat, and fruits, but am still overweight (5'5 180) after reading through the blog today I've really realized how much more I need to be eating to really reap the benefits of this diet. Eventually, I'd like to start weaning off the meds, but until then; does anyone have any tips for getting more food in throughout the day?
UPDATE So, I've been doing some more reading and am even more worried/confused. A lot of what I've read says that if you don't feel hungry, don't eat, but how am I supposed to tell the difference with the medicine interfering?
