    What areas of primal/paleo are you having the most difficulty with?

    Primal Fuel
    I'm trying to get a good understanding of how the primal/paleo diet and lifestyle is going on for everyone, no matter where you are on the journey.

    I've been investing a lot of time and effort this past year. It's been going great, but for me, I would say that eating way more vegetables and less fruit is what I am having the most difficulty with. Fruit is just so much tastier and easier to eat compared to vegetables. What about you guys?

    - What areas of eating and living primal/paleo are you having the most difficulty with?
    - Why is this?

    Right now the biggest issue I have is hunger. The other issue is a cranky non-paleo husband.

    If you like fruit why don't you just eat it?

    Overconsumption of adult beverages. I'm getting better with reducing the amount and frequency while increasing the quality, but I'm just not there yet. I have too much fun going out to the bar with friends. I'll eventually make my way to being a moderation drinker...

    For me it is over reading into every little bio-hack that comes across the forums.

    Hunger.
    Fruit and sweet flavors as well.
    No snacking or good snacking choices (nuts, cheese, fruit = easy snacks but bad).
    I also cannot really believe that legumes are bad for you, so I gave up on eliminating 'em.

    Load vegetables with butter and salt. Taste like candy.

    Up until this past month, I had a really hard time with sugar. I enjoyed dark chocolate and homemade nearly primal coconut ice cream way too often. Fruit became a binge item. Since being diagnosed with candida overgrowth and having to give up all sugar, this is much, much easier to maintain. When you get rid of the sugar, you don't crave it anymore.

    Might want to try going off fruit for a month. Do a Whole30 challenge. My guess is, the sugar in the fruit is what is getting you.

    Getting back on the "low carb wagon" once I've gotten off. I was on vacation until July 22nd and ate a lot of fruit, nuts, and dark chocolate (and a small amount of ice cream). I've spent the last week trying to get back on the stick but have failed almost every day. The worst thing is I feel sooooo much better when I'm low carb...I just want to feel great again.

    Sleep. I only get 6-7 hours a night, mostly because of computer use right before I sleep.

    Also need to cut the nuts. 8-16oz/day is not Primal.
