  • Feeling hungry after eating 2 pieces of steak + brocolli/tomatoes

    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?

    you are 16 years old - EAT! you are still growing. Fit in some exercise, get enough sleep. Dare I sound like a parent: lay off the video games....socialize with real people.
    But don't skip meals because your body needs all the nutrition you can get - especially after years of eating the usual American crap.
    and please read Mark's book or at least the "start here" on this site, because EGGS ARE GOOD FOR YOU. So, please eat, and good luck to you.

      I usually skip breakfast cause i dont feel a heavy need for it.
      I Know the health benefits of eggs, i eat 4 of them at a time. But ive been having high cholesterol levels....
      I think that i need more exercise to lower cholesterol.

        When I was your age I was pounding 6,000 calories per day. Eat. Work out. Eat. Then eat again.

              Problem: "Feeling hungry after eating 2 pieces of steak + brocolli/tomatoes"

              Remedy: "Eat 2 more pieces of steak + broccoli/tomatoes"

              See how easy that was?

                A 16 year old shouldn't know their cholesterol unless they have already had a heart attack. Your numbers aren't bad. Because you know them you are already making bad choices in order to correct things that might not be an issue.

                Do you have any other health risk factors that led to the need for lipid panels? Family history, high blood pressure, etc. ? At 120 lb, weight is obviously not an issue.

                  Stand up, go into your kitchen right now, and eat everything you see. Repeat.

                      Ok, then. Read the book or the 101 section and THEN raid the kitchen for everything that is still considered food.

                        At this point, to prevent orthorexia, yes. Eat the damn bread.

                          You are 16 and growing - you need to eat!

                          Cutting back on eggs???? - why would you do something silly like that? Increase egg consumption.
                          TChol will increase along with HDL.
                          Chol is require to grow muscle, bones, tissue etc (you know grow like a 16yo should).

                          Your Tc is 200 - why did you know this number at the age of 16?
                          Did your doctor suggest the cholesterol was high or bad? - Wrong your cholesterol/trig ratios are good.

                          How many eggs do you consume a week? (at least a dozen?).

                          Dont eat processed "foods" - eat real foods and do some exercise.

                            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?
