For the last couple of years, I've had trouble with food - overeating, constantly thinking about (carby) food, eating "just because it's there", etc. I think it's all been due to some weird, unfounded fear of ending up in a situation where I'm... (more)

You sound a lot like me, especially if you're skinny. I can only tell you my experience, so I don't know how well this applies to you: I wasn't eating enough. Eat more. As a skinny guy, I had developed a mental model of what "a lot" of food... (more)

For weight loss, would soup be the best go-to? Is it more filling then chewing solid food? Could you just mix your solid food in a blender to make the soup? :)

Soup is more filling, but not more satiating. Your stomach will feel full with less total caloric intake with soup, but you will be hungry sooner, as your body will not sense it has received adequate nutrition. Just eat real whole foods, leaning... (more)

Sometimes I feel like I cannot be satiated on just paleo...I feel like if I add a piece of bread to the end of my meal when I don't feel "complete" I will feel more satiated. Does anyone else feel this way? Can be wheat be satiating?

Wheat triggers exorphins that give you an immediate feeling of satisfaction--for a short period of time. And then you start craving more and more.

At 25.7 BMI why do you NEED to lose weight? This is slightly overweight, not morbid obesity, and not enough to raise any health concerns. Don't obsess over it and drift back into disordered eating. Just figure out how to maintain.

The amount of fat in each was just a decision made when it was butchered/processed. Any animal has enough fat to make high fat ground and of course you could trim all the fat and make a low fat ground. The package should be labeled 80/20 or... (more)

When you limit your carbs you switch over to burning your own body fat for energy. Your body is getting part of its fuel from your own fat so there is less need to eat.
