So I've been doing this for quite awhile, and recently I threw in IF'ing (24 hour IF'ing happened sort of naturally) and love the results. The one thing that has been sabotaging me lately though, is that I end up breaking fasts in places where my only options - while primal, don't fill me up. Things like eggs, veggies, etc.
Since I can't do butter, I end up not cooking with fat, and most places don't have any other fat choices. So I end up completely ravenous, and not wanting to devour an entire carton of someone else's eggs (that awkward moment...) , I end up indulging with nuts, dairy, sugar, which was something I haven't had a problem with in a long time.
I don't get full without a significant fat source - so what I'm wondering is if anyone has good, portable snacks I can keep with me just incase of "emergencies"!
Oh, and I can't do dairy or nuts
Coconut milk with frozen fruit!
There are lots of paleo "baked goods" and raw food snacks that are coconut-based and easy to carry around. Generally, they'll consist of things like shredded coconut, coconut oil, honey, coconut flour, dates, banana, etc.
Pork rinds or cracklings!
2 whisked eggs, 3 tbs coconut oil, 1-2 tbs 100% cacao, sweetner (optional). chuck in fridge, (or freezer if time is an issue) then devour. optional: add frozen berries, shredded coconut, macadamias. etc
Larabars! Kind of high in sugar, but some of the flavors without fruit might be okay for you.
I made coconut bars just for this issue.
1/2 cup coco oil
1/2 cup coco butter
1c shredded coconut
Heat on low till all is mixed thoroughly then pout into a wax pare lined loaf pan and cool in fridge. Once solid chop into 16 pieces, each chunk is approx 120cal and is great for putting a stop to hunger. Not sure how portable it would be as it would melt if kept in your pocket.
Another thing I do is a carry a small container of coconut butter with me, a tablespoon or two before eating does wonders at controlling your appetite.
Unfortunately they are too carb-based for me! I don't full via paleo baked goods/fruit, but thanks!

I take a 2 tbsp shot of extra light (flavourless) olive oil most afternoons, within a two hour window of no other flavours. I have successfully lost weight doing this, as my other food intake is much reduced and I have no cravings for anything.
I did this with 1tbsp of coconut oil about 30hrs into my 48hr fast, made the last 18 a breeze.
