You might also like to look at the tread on resistant starch - I began that a few weeks ago and for me it is the final piece in the jigsaw. Brilliant!
6 feet tall, now about 150lbs. And have been that for 2+ years.
I have been following the resistant starch thread, looks intriguing. I think I may have been lulled into a false sense of security because I was eating healthy. After doing some calculations I am eating way to much calories! Im also aware that when I get agitated or anxious I immediately comfort eat.....at least its still paleo food at the moment, so my body is still detoxifying :-)
Im also anxious that increasing my carbs will increase my hunger..
IMHO if you eat refined processed to help carbs yes that is a likely reality. However eating a big huge 1lb sweet potato with some butter will not have the same effect at all.
I'm liking that sentiment! Bought some sweet potatoes today :-)
Well... your hunger isn't satiated with pounds of nuts and 500g of meat. Try some fruit and some sweet potatoes for sure. No need to fear hunger. You are likely eating not just out of boredom but also using paleo-approved stuff as a crutch to fill a "void" that won't be filled with anything else other than some carbs.
I find monomeals (and more extreme, monofood days) really helpful for appetite suppression...be it just eggs, just bananas, just potatoes, just whatever it is. You should try it for a few days. Pick a food...the less processed it is the better. I have done it with all three listed above and it works.
HCLF: lean red meat, eggs, low-fat dairy, bone broth/gelatin, fruits, seafood, liver, small amount of starch (oatmeal, white rice, potatoes, carrots), small amount of saturated fat (butter/ghee/coconut/dark chocolate/cheese).

If it's just a bit of change you're looking for, I know a company called Tolerant makes pasta out of one ingredient: red lentils. Here's a link: https://www.navanfoods.com/tolerant-...-lentil-rotini
It's a little expensive for me, but if I were really craving something different, I'd go for it.
You also said you eat a lot of meat along with some tinned fish; have you considered switching the meat out for more fish? A hearty slab of alaskan caught salmon baked with fresh dill, onions and coconut oil has never done me wrong.
On a seperate note, I'm getting a little concerned about a lack of exiting waste... maybe this should be a seperate thread?
