    I'm always hungry!!!!

    Primal Fuel
    Since starting this diet, I've been feeling hungry or have a gnawing feeling in my stomach a good amount of the time. This is only day four of the 30 day challenge and am wondering if I need to just stick this out or eat more?? I'm not sure if I'm actually hungry, as nothing sounds that good to me. Any thoughts?? Suggestions?? Thank you!!!

    I suggest eating more- especially protein and good fat. The whole point of this way of life is to learn to listen to your body. Eat until you are sated and then don't eat until you are hungry again. Once your body gets used to it, you'll find the hunger signals get longer in between and much less urgent. Hang in there! It's worth it!

    Eat more fat! You don't need to be hungry.

    If it's the difference between:

    -staying on a path of eating good healthy WHOLE veggies and meats while avoiding toxins, especially grains and processed sugars

    OR

    -going back to doing what you've done in the past

    Then definitely, eat more in the short term. It's a challenge initially to eat this way, especially if you are coming from something very different. Don't heap more stress on yourself by going around hungry all the time. After a month or so and your body has adjusted from getting the majority of it's energy from sugar to getting the majority of it's energy from fat, then you can play around with varying your intake levels.

    If your only four days in then this is normal, it take alot longer to adapt. You mentioned you felt hungry, but nothing really seem that appealing? This is because it's not genuine hunger, but a desire for an increase in blood sugar. yes protein and fat will saitisfy in the longer term, but wont give you the immeadiate feeling of fullness you have got it the past from eating carbs.

    As you become more adapted to the diet, you become more insulin sensitive, so it takes less carbohydrate to create an immediate sensation of fullness

    Eat protein and fats, not carbs. Make a big a$$ salad and put lots of olive oil and some goat cheese on it.
