Feeling hungry after eating 2 pieces of steak + brocolli/tomatoes
Cholesterol is also needed to grow testosterone. Ever wonder if it's a coincidence there are so many ads for lipitor, ED pills and low-T medication on TV every night?
I stopped watching tv - got tired of sitting around watching/listening to them telling me what crap to eat and drink, what medications to take to get over the illnesses from sitting around eating/drinking that crap and finally what diet plan to use to loose weight caused by sitting around eating/drinking that crap and taking the medications.
Same thing is happening to me for a couple of weeks now. The only thing i skip is breakfast cause in the morning i don't have enough time to cook and all because of rushing to office. I make up for that by having a heavy lunch but still at around 4 or 5'o clock i start feeling hungry.What's the solution to this problem?
Is this a serious question?
Problem : Hungry
Solution : Eat
Some backgroun info-
I recently found out about this primal thing and it seems very interesting. I'm 16 and i weigh around 120~ lb. I am usually not very physically active but i manage to do the daily pushups/pullups and some light walking. I usually spend my time sitting at school or at home playing videogames etc.
Today i ate 0 grains, but i ate lots of meats and vegetables. After my meal I was pretty full and satisfied; however after 3-4 hrs i am feeling hungry (usually i can cope with hunger by skipping breakfast and lunch).
I still havent eaten yet since i can control myself being hungry and not eating stuff; would it be reccommened to eat a light snack?
Also if I have like 134 LDL (55HDL and 55Triglycerides), should I start exercising more or cutting back on my egg intake? Eat more vegetables?
I have found that some users here are generally either pretty unhelpful, patronising or usually unwilling to provide sensible and productive advice. For an active forum, I don't sense a solid or united community. Primal is not universal and doesn't apply to a single rule, it is more about personalisation and individuality which explains why some advice irresponsibly posted here doesn't apply to every one. For example, you may have a recommendation from a user to increase fat and eat more, yet the next contradicting post stressing the importance of glucose and carbohydrates while suggesting limiting calorie intake for optimal weight loss. Do cardio, but don't do it. Lift but don't lift. Eat this and not that, starch intake should be moderated or avoided, eat berries but they'll inefficiently contribute to weight loss.
Before embarking on Primal/Paleo/Atkins/Keto you MUST thoroughly research and read books. I spent hours browsing dozens of forums, reading different experiences and trying to figure out what works best for me. I'm still in the process of finding that 'sweet spot'.
You're young and eliminating grains is fine, but forget ketosis or going very low carb like you have already done. It is dangerous and unsustainable for someone still developing. Eat vegetables, fruits, starches. 100-150g of carbs a day is probably best to avoid the SHIT feeling. Eat a huge salad, plenty of fruits, bake sweet potatoes! Enjoy your steak, cook it in butter and oil. Have some vegetables with it, or a salad. Have some cheese, greek yogurt, I like making LC ice cream with heavy cream, cocoa and some stevia. Cook a cheese omelette with bacon for breakfast with veggies. Have everything and give your body time. It will adjust and the appetite will suppress.
You're hungry because your body is crying out for carbs. During this initial phase, you should probably just eat. Don't worry about cals, eat vegetables, fruits, starches. Avoid refined sugar and processed stuff. Overtime your body will adapt and the appetite will decrease, I was eating like a whale when I started. I later realised the reason for this is because I had been restricting my body of everything for such an extensive period of time, I was at a healthy weight but very unhappy and malnourished because nothing was working.
What jumps out at me: no carbs.
When you're young and active, many people need a decent amount of carbs to keep them going. Not ALL people, but definitely most. Eat your lean meats with sweet potatoes, parsnips, potato and other roots and tubers. Eat your fattier meat and your eggs with "fruit and flowers": broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, asparagus, courgette.
Minimum two meals a day. Ideally 3 or 4. Main proteins twice a day, main carbs once, main fats once. So breakfast: banana and tea, lunch fatty mince burger with a light salad, dinner grilled chicken breast with baked sweet potato. And, if you're hungry: eat more.
You may need to tweak to suit yourself individually (some need less carbs, or to bulk on carbs earlier, some need more fat, some more protein...etc), but the very first step is to make sure you're getting ALL your macros.
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...
According to the minute amount of info you provided in the OP, you don't say what your goals are by eating this way, but at 120lb you have no reason to restrict serving size or carbs. You're 16 and growing. EAT MORE FOOD. Specifically more good fats and plant-based carbohydrates, including fruits, nuts and tubers.
Eat for optimal health. This means eating as much clean, natural, high-fat, nutrient-dense food as YOUR 16yo body is asking for. That *could* be 6000 calories in one day. Maybe not every day.
Stop trying to emulate the goals of an overweight, sedentary, pre-diabetic 45 yo woman.
And no, do not go have a snack to ward off hunger. FEED your hunger.
