I have a very unusual schedule. I wake up around 9 and make breakfast. It's usually eggs with onion and peppers with bacon. Then I work out. Then I have a few hours before I start my lunch. I've been trying different paleo recipes. Usually it's a... (more)
I am an IT professional at a health care data analytics startup and am an active triathlete and runner. My wife is a consultant at the same startup and an MBA student. We love to cook dinner and always carve out time to make it happen. However,... (more)
I occasionally grab some dehydrated coconut flakes as a snack, but I was wondering if coconut oil would be a better option. The only difference I can see is that shredded coconut has fiber, whereas the oil is more calorie dense. Other than... (more)
So I've been trying to follow the whole "eat only when you're hungry" idea, but I have found an issue with it. If I don't eat breakfast, since I'm not hungry (which is often the case) I find that by the evening, usually after dinner, I start... (more)
I have been eating paleo now for about 6 months. The first 3 months I was really strict on myself. Lately I have been ???cheating??? on myself by snacking (I am a huge snacker and need to find a way to work on that). I always need something sweet... (more)
It is generally agreed that snacking constantly is not conductive to good health. I am not familiar with the science but I have also read that if you are eating within a window (16/8) then meal frequency does not matter. How do they... (more)
As long as you're eating during the window, and your calorie intake is the same, snacking and meals will yield the same result in my opinion. It's a feeding window.. FEED! :D
I'm struggling on this diet, am doing well during the day but the cravings are getting the better of me after 7pm every night. I would like to try an appetite suppressant in the evening to see if this can stop me eating mindlessly, i would be... (more)
I stalled recently. I was still feeling good but my body improvements stopped. I tried IF a few months ago and couldn't handle it but decided to give it another go. The results were great! I have seen steady fat loss over the past few weeks and I... (more)
Can you lose weight if you eat late at night? I always eat good portions during the day but then I have a relatively good sized dinner and then kind of a second dinner around 9:30 b/c I'm so hungry. Will I lose weight, and how can I stop... (more)
I've been Paleo going on 2 years. Very happy with it. However, I have noticed a predicament that I am having trouble dealing with. After going through the Leptin reset and reading a lot of Paleo blogs, I've become kinda dogmatic about not... (more)
I have been eating Paleo since before Thanksgiving. (Except for my morning coffee which I just can't give up!!) I work out at Crossfit 4-5 times per week and play tennis another 2+ times per week. My question is - is anyone else always hungry? ... (more)
true story. similar activity level. Doesn't matter the amount of food I eat, I am always hungry. I've done the 72oz steak challenge in 45mins and ate again an hour later.
It seems to me that snacking is a cultural phenomenon that isn't particularly good for us ... and not particularly paleo. Paleo snacks are certainly an improvement over the stuff in the vending machine, but I'd think that once you've adapted to... (more)
The only hack I have is to eat the right foods. Eat something if you're hungry. Labels like snack, breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc. are the cultural phenomenon, along with the scheduled times of day we eat.
I work full time 42h+ and an studying my masters and I find that I compulsively go to the cupboard for snacks. Its not because I am hungry in any way. It is totally do with procrastination and stress with my workload. I have to study almost all... (more)
When I found myself gravitating toward the fridge in such situations, I used to drop down and pump out 10 push ups, go to the sink have a big glass of water and get back to it, funny how that takes your mind off whatever urge was propelling you... (more)
What food suggestions do you have for snacking in between meals ?(satisfying without the calories such as nuts) How many snacks per day?
I tend to snack throughout the day, when I feel hungry (regardless of the time of day), instead of eating a specified breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like some days I'll have breakfast and lunch, but no dinner and just a snack later at night. Or... (more)
Do you ever snack? (Paleo friendly of course) I'm rather new to all this and have been doing really well eating 3 Paleo meals a day and haven't often felt a need for between meal snacks but there is the off day where I am hungry before a meal. ... (more)
Hey all! First time poster here :) Love this community, btw. :) Been following for a while. Anyway, I had a question (obviously :)). I eat paleo and have 3 square meals a day and occasionally do snack. I'm a student and always eat before class... (more)
All I can think of is raw celery or carrots since they provide the crunch, volume, are low calorie, and they will (eventually) stop me from eating (I physically cannot overeat them - by the time they fill me up, I haven't done too much caloric... (more)
Before going paleo I was always chewing gum or eating hard candy. Now I don't know what to do..I want to chew gum or something along those lines but its not paleo. Any tips or ideas that could help me get over this?
I've been advised to stop snacking. I was recently told by my doctor i have reactive hypoglycemia after having a 3hr glucose tolerance test done. A peer advised I stop snacking because my body may be getting used to having an insulin release too... (more)
I've tried searching this different ways but I think there are too many buzz words. After going Paleo, I really never thought that I "snacked" until I really considered it the other day (trying to lose the last 5-10 lbs). Then I remembered that... (more)
I have been eating Paleo for a little while now. One thing that I've found pretty hard is finding snack options that fit Paleo nutrition and things that I didn't have to make. I came across these guys last week and just received my first box.... (more)
