First of all, you have to decide ahead of time how you are going to choose to answer the Cheez-Its when they call out your name. What are you doing with them in your house anyway? If you really don't want to eat them, because you know they are just a bunch of chemicals that taste like cheese and are bad for your long-term health, then you should have them far enough away that you don't hear them, even when they are screaming at the top of their lungs!
Primal is not a diet, it is a way of eating and living for life. So I think, there is no going on and off and on and off. Either you buy into the philosophy or you do not.
I don't know about the details of what you are eating and how many hours or intensely you are exercising, but IF it is inline with the The Primal Blueprint, then you just have to give it time. I know some people require more carbs to feel good, but from the posts I would guess that most of them are sticking to primal carbs, not Cheez-Its.
Based on my experience and what I have read I am fat-adapted (It takes quite a long time for me to feel any hunger - like half a day). It took about a month to get to that point. However, I strictly followed the Primal Blueprint. No added sugar, No processed foods, No seed oils, No grains of any kind, No legumes, No snacking, No Cheez-its.
I have lost just over 20 pounds and I think I will reach a good weight if I lose another 10. I also need to work on building muscle and that it the latest change I am making (bought a bike). One step at a time.
