  • Who's the better carber, essay?

    While many of us IF during the day and eat in the evening, I would say the majority of us are accustomed to a surplus portion of nutrition because of our lack of starchy carbs. Needless to say, some of my friends can be startled by my gigantic plate of vegetables and meat...

    When it does so happen I indulge in high carb fiestas, I'm eating an excess amount of cupcakes or chips compared to my nonprimal counterpart. Because I'm used to getting full as there is a delusion when it comes to "snacking".

    Does this happen to you?

    I guess this scenario is only familiar to me lol.

    Before I know it, my insulin receptors are firing off and I'm still hungry. How do people graze like this?

      I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. But in order to keep things interesting, I'll just go ahead and claim that I'm the better carber.

      Also, where's this essay you mentioned?

        Oh my lol we never had any mandatory spanish essays in Canada unfortunately. I should reword essay = ese, friend or "brother".
        I thought this whole forum was latino!

        My rant in breaking paleo (which I seldom let happen) attributes to heavy eating, because that's what I'm accustomed to if I do without rice or bread.
        Aren't we used to eating meals, and not snacks? I never understand how people can just have eight chips...

          Ok, I think I see what you're saying. I dunno, but I've always had a weakness for salty/crunchy snacks (chips), and it's persisted after I switched to a primal diet. I'll occasionally indulge with some corn chips & salsa, and I could easily devour an entire bag in one sitting. Usually I'll stop myself at no more than half a bag (probably 150g+ worth of carbs), but only because I know how much my stomach will hurt later if I continue.

          I remember in my pre-primal days I felt a constant, gnawing hunger throughout the day. I would graze between every meal to try to sate my hunger, but it was always there. At least primal eating has blunted the perpetual hunger. My occasional indulgences still trigger big carb cravings, but fortunately these are relatively few and far between.

            Cupcakes and chips are primal foods.

            If you are going to eat higher carb, you might as well for for the rice. Forget chips and cupcakes.

              Hell yeah. I can eat tons of cake and cookies and ice cream.
              You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

                  I find IFing has helped me curb cravings. It's so much easier to control a fast than opening a bag of chips. Weird how that works!

                    ? I think you have me confused.
                    Cupcakes and chips are not primal, but rice is. I just choose to avoid rice because it's high glycemic.

                    Although during special occasions, I can enjoy life and reward myself (albeit over do it sometimes).

                      They can? I've not met them. If there was a lethal portion of chips I could eat it. Pre-primal I simply could not have them in the house. Can't say that I ever craved them then or now, it was just mindless eating. It's one thing I've left behind, haven't had one in almost a year.
                      Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

                        to be honest i find ice cream is the best thing to go off the bandwagon with loll eventually youll hit that point where youre nauseated and dying from it so it forces you to stop...and i find overall unless youre severely lactose intolerant youll be fine the next day..except maybe a bit tired! usually no stomach probs! Rice is king tho..i find it irritates less than sweet potatoes which are heavier..altho sweet pot after a workout are perfecto!
