Why am I So Hungry?
By Chris Fox
You’ve been doing great with food choices during this first week of paleo, but some days find yourself wracked with hunger.WTF? Recognize that by removing grains, legumes, dairy, and refined sugar, you’ve removed potent calorie sources as well. Be sure to make up for those calories by eating enough protein and fat. You cannot expect be satisfied with an egg or two and a few veggies for breakfast if you expect that breakfast to last you any more than a few hours. You need to be eating enough. Don’t throw hunger pangs on top of cravings for foods that you’ve removed from your diet. If you’re starving you’re much more likely to satisfy said cravings. Try combining 2 or more animal protein sources in meals and be sure that you have enough calories coming in. A good drizzle of olive oil or a small handful of nuts added to a meal can make all the difference. Each of your meals should be centered around a generous serving of animal protein and garnished with veggies/fruit/nuts. A plate full of cauliflower and a boiled egg will not provide the energy you need to be a sane, functioning human being. Paleo choices give you the permission to EAT!
Speaking of Hungry… Remember to RSVP for the Paleo Potluck on the 21st! We want to make sure that we get enough table space and cutlery for everyone. Please post in the event page comments both to RSVP (include guests) and to say what dish you are bringing to help avoid overlaps.
