At first when I started out Paleo 5 weeks ago I was hungry as hell ate about 3000 cal a day and that's a lot. Probably gained a little but just figured that I'd deal with that once I've accommodated into paleo. Now I'm barely hungry at all,... (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? :)

No. Eat whole foods, try not to drink them (Ex. Juices and soups). :)

I've been eating a paleo diet for 3 weeks, and I've lost 4-6 pounds. The problem is, I'm not trying to lose weight! In fact, if I go much lower than this I'm likely to run into some serious health problems (the details are excessively personal,... (more)

Who is to say you will keep on losing weight? This could be a 'setpoint' at which your body stays for a while. It just took 3 weeks of 'paleo' to find that out... It is very possible that the weight loss is related to you removing triggers of... (more)

Eat high volumes of low calorie foods. Leafy greens like spinach and kale, salads (with a moderate amount of dressing), celery, summer squash. All of these foods are 90%+ water so they will help fill you up without busting your caloric budget. (more)

My guess is that you're becoming more fat adapted and don't require as much food. You are satiated quicker and your body is better able to use dietary and stored body fat for your energy needs. Try slowly cutting down on the number of eggs and... (more)

Sometimes the appetite is satiated because you've gotten the nutrition you need. Sometimes the appetite disappears because you are eating cardboard and making the appetite disappear seems to be most effective way to get you to stop.

Protein restriction makes me hungry too. I think the strategy is based on a rather myopic view of biology. It makes sense we'd have seasons when we'd have a lot of growth (and activation of MTOR), and then times when we didn't.
