Young self-caring Paleo-eater from France.
(So please forgive the strange way I tend to express myself in your beautiful language )
For me, overeating on fat is the easiest thing in the world. I could eats sticks of butter and still want more with butter on top. But if I have a nice lean cut of beef like flank steak that I have to chew, I feel like I have really eaten something and am satisfied with far fewer calories.
Not saying you are wrong. Just that we are different.
And another experience, here! I went very high-fat to get my system convinced it was safe to use it for fuel. It worked! I lost about ten pounds, nice and slowly. Months later, I reduced the fat and increased the protein, and have continued to reshape my body. Now that I've had it, I know what it feels like to be satisfied - and for me, that's protein. And a lot of it. Very often 1000 calories of protein a day. Fat is next, by caloric density, and then greens and sweet potatoes, avocados, eggs and the rest.
But, yes, I lost weight and gained muscle when I dialed back the fat and increased protein.
