    You didn't mention a whole lot of fat. That's always my answer. MORE FAT! Cook your eggs in the bacon grease, put butter on your steak, eat some coconut oil, enjoy heavy cream with your berries... at least until your body adapts to the decreased carbs.

    Personally I like Tropical Tradition's coconut cream concentrate better.
    Coconut Cream Concentrate - Tropical Traditions

    both are like super thick peanut butter, only they're made from coconut meat

    Have a large breakfast and a large dinner. Keep some happy cow cheese or a sweet potato with butter close by during the day so you have a healthy snack at hand.

    Remember, don't snack. Eat only meals
    This works for most people. Make sure your getting enough good fat.

    I found as well that upping fat intake with food helped with this same issue. Remember the rules, eat when you are hungry but make sure it is PB foods. Veggies, meat and fat, stick to those in myriad combinations and you will be fine, snack on berries and pepper slices and jerky and leftovers. Your body needs enough fat to run on and to force your body to switch to fat burning, once this happens, worry about weight loss, till then feed the fire with PB foods and eat when you are hungry.

    I always cook dinner with leftovers so I have food for the following day to eat cold.

    If you can, a whacking big salad heavy on mixed veggies as you like and a EVOO heavy salad dressing with meat from the night before makes a great lunch and is very filling. It is often my first meal of the day and sometimes the only one.

    When first starting I would stay away from fruit also for the first couple of weeks. Fruit generates hunger in me since it is a big sugar zing.
    Try using coconut butter etc. as others have mentioned to help get past the sweet urges. It really helps because it has a slightly sweet taste and is rich and creamy.
    Also make sure you are getting lots of fat. Butter or ghee, eat the skin on the chicken. Eat fatty pork chops and brisket. yummmmm Lots of butter on those veggies.

    I had the same problem when I started. My body/brain didn't change until about 8 months into it.
    Surprisingly, I lost about 20 lbs during those first 8 months of primal binging....odd, but true.

    I can echo the temporary phase view. For the first three months even, I had to have snacks of nuts, fruits, veggies, and even some dark chocolate to stay satiated. But after that period of time, I rarely feel ravenously hungry any more.

    What they said. I am also fairly new to this and have discovered that high sugar fruits tend to make me crave-y and feel run down. The dried fruit is really pretty much natural candy, so I would really avoid that.

    I've been on a Primal Diet for six days and I'm hungry a lot more than I used to be and that surprises me given what I'm eating. I'm also losing weight at rate of 5 pounds a week. So my conclusion is that I need to give it more time and I need to increase calories even further. I don't mind a three pound a week loss, I could use it. But I'll track for a couple of weeks and then make adjustments in week 3. I've also increased my running mileage and realize that can affect my hunger too. I'm burning about 2600 calories a week running.
