    How to respond to this?

    Shop Now
    From another forum I belong to, this is a response a woman got who asked what to do because she feels hungry all the time...

    "If you eat pretty well, try filling up more on fibrous things like oatmeal, cruciferous vegetables, bran cereals. It could be that maybe you are just not eating enough bulk!"

    Drives me %^&ing crazy!

    Ignore it?

    Maybe you could send her a private message. Tell her that its the grains in her diet that are making her hungry and give her the link to this website. Short and sweet and she can either listen or ignore.

    Tina's advice is probably going to keep you more sane. Otherwise, be prepared to spend the next few days fending off the hordes of shocked forum members when you suggest grains are bad and meat/veggies are good.

    Seconded -- sending it as a PM lets you avoid feeling obliged to counter endless arguments you'd probably gather in the main thread.

    I'd give her a direct link to the PB 101 section as well as the main site. When I got here I didn't even realize where to find all the basic intro information, really... and when you click "About primal blueprint" it just goes to the book's promotional text.

    At the very least you could openly suggest eating more veggies. You can absolutely *stuff* yourself on most veggies and not have made a dent in a day's cal count, generally speaking. Eat 3 entire bags of frozen broccoli, a bag of celery, and a head of lettuce - what's that add up to, 100 cals? No normal human being will be "hungry all the time" if they do that. They might not look forward to the veggies, but they won't be hungry...

    ...except that hunger and satiety aren't just driven by the fullness of the stomach.

    This - if I stuff myself on plain veggies, I feel stuffed...and hungry, and I keep searching for things to eat. It takes fat and protein to actually satisfy hunger.

    OK. *I* wouldn't be hungry after feasting on veggies, and *I* am certainly able to eat roasted salted nuts until the can is gone, but I realize everyone is different. God bless the person still hungry after stuffing all the veg I listed.
