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? :)

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)

In terms of satiety, fats are top three among all macronutrients, behind only protein and carbs. (I.e., they're ahead of alcohol.) If you look at the foods that have been tested for satiety, plain carbs like potatoes or oranges are great, and... (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)

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)
