    I can't eat any form of dairy without feeling like crap. Maybe try cutting that out & see if you feel better. And yeah, the peanut butter should go... not to mention that most peanut butter is made with sugar and all sorts of oils. Try Artisana's raw pecan butter or cashew butter or walnut butter, yum!

      I checked the ingredients of the peanut butter, it's made of 100$ roasted peanuts. Why should it go? Why is it bad?

        Candida Diet: Foods to Avoid

        you should not be eating lots of nuts. a few here and there is fine. they're not a food group. if you still feel hungry after eating, are you eating enough protein and fats?
        As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          The reason peanuts are a no-go food for primal is that they are not nuts. They are actually legumes which are on the list of things you shouldn't eat because they have a lot of phytates. Also peanuts are frequently contaminated by mycotoxins which are also not good for you.

          In addition they are quite calorie dense without much in the way of nutrients (which is the case with the true nuts also.)

          My recommendation based on your first post would be to go fully primal for at least a month. If you haven't read the book, do. If you haven't read the primal 101 posts, do. And I know how much of a pain in the ass counting calories and such is but I would do that too for at least a week. My biggest problem when I first switched to primal is that I felt super tired. I finally entered a weeks worth of food into one of the online food tracker things and found out I was only eating about 800-1000 calories a day! No wonder I was tired! I was eating a good VOLUME of food but it was mostly greens that take up space but don't offer many calories. Once I upped my calories I felt all better!

          Also there is a particular poster on these forums who was significantly underweight and used primal as a way to heal and put weight on. I can't think of her name right now so maybe another poster can help me out here? Anyway she wrote a really good journal along the way so you might want to read that too since you are concerned about losing any weight.

          Make sure you are eating plenty of calories, go fully primal for at least a month (you have some serious chronic symptoms so commit to no cheats for the whole month!), and give it some time. It sounds like you have been dealing with some chronic symptoms for a long time. Everyones body heals at a different speed. Treat your food like the medicine it is and give your body time to heal. And we'll help and encourage you but you have to be the one to do it! No one else can fix you the way you can.

            Oh I would love to talk to that person!
            How much calories are we supposed to eat? I guess this is different for everyone. I noticed that since I don't eat grain, I eat much more meat than before, I didn't like it much before, but now I almost crave for meat sometimes hehe. But I crave for bacon or other cold meat, because they are very tasty. I know they are more transformed than the real meat I used in my meals. Can I still eat them? Like bacon, proscuitto... I take them at the butcher, they come from grass-fed animals.

            I already cut dairies, so I guess the last thing I need to do is cut more on sugar. I made some brownies thi weekend, with honey for the sugar, and this is sooooo good. So I guess, no more of that? Only some littles fruits like blueberries, not that often?

            I will keep on reading the articles and look for the book.

            If anyone find who is the poster you're talking about, let me know!!

            Thx

              What else was in the brownies? Hopefully you used coconut or almond flour?

              It sounds to me like you aren't eating enough, especially if you're snacking all the time. Increase meal portions until hunger decreases. No need to count calories if you hate it, if you listen to your hunger. It may take you a while to replace missing nutrients once you're eating enough. The body does its repair work while you're sleeping, so be sure you are sleeping enough.

                ^^this.

                after i got off grains, i found myself craving meat which i never did before. it was weird for me, but totally great. there is such a thing as a reasonable portion though. i'm not tucking in to a 16 oz. steak every meal, ya know?

                watch out for paleo-friendly treats. they can be calorie bombs and if you keep eating that kind of stuff, you will keep craving sweets. low-carb fruits like blackberries and strawberries are better choices for now. even better is to have it with some fat, like yogurt or cream, so it's not straight sugar blasting through your system.

                and yeah, if you feel the need to snack, your meals should be bigger. more protein, more fat.
                As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

                  Today, I didn't feel hungry all the time ^^
                  I even snacked a little bit just because it's a habit lol.

                  It that brownie, there was almond butter, no flour used in it. BUT, I remember then, there was chocolate chips with bad sugar in it... So the brownie must go.

                  I ordered the book!

                  And yeah I realized I need to eat more at meals. I need 3 eggs in the morning instead of 2. All the meat I eat need, wow I would never have eaten that much before! I would eat like, not even half of a steak. Now, I like it and eat a lot more! With an egg on top, with avocado! And don't even feel full! (most of the time).

                  Now I can't wait to read the book. While I wait for it, I read some article and success stories to keep me motivated
