I'm three weeks in to a 30-day Paleo challenge, and I'm finding that I have to eat LOADS of food to feel satisfied. And then a couple of hours later, I'm hungry again. I'm mainly eating meat and vegetables, with a bit of fish, a fair amount of fruit, and almonds every other day. Sweet potatoes are the only starch that seems to satisfy me, but I don't eat them every day (maybe I should)?
My husband, on the other hand, who eats the same things as me, is never hugely hungry and seems to have even energy levels.
Does it have anything to do with body fat percentage? I'm 26, 5'6", 108ish lbs, between 18-20% body fat, and pretty active (I'm a yoga/Pilates teacher). My husband is 5'11", 180ish lbs, not sure of body fat percentage.
I'm pretty sure I need more starch than I'm getting, but just wondering why I seem to need more than my husband. I don't want to lose weight btw.
Forgive me if this is a stupid question, I'm just trying to understand why some people seem to feel great on VLC and others don't.
