For the first year of eating "primally" I avoided white rice, potatoes - any obvious carbohydrate. and while my primary objectives were met (asthma improved massively etc) I began to feel lethargic, hungry quite soon after eating, stomach distress.

And yes, they keep me feeling full for much longer.
I prefer hot cereal to cold cereal. I find that having hot millet or buckwheat with some banana and milk once in a while is perfect for me. I don't like breads much, or pancakes, and find them too much of a domino food, particularly the ones made with nut flours. But bowl of hot cereal particularly after a good lifting session is great. It is also good on a weekend night as a cravings killer & fills me up and makes me sleep well.
I could never get satiated on fat, just kept binging and never feel satsified, so I am increasing my carbs and including the good old buckwheat and millet along with fruit and tubers.
If you feel it does you good, go for it!
EDIT: Erm, I wanted to mention that I do not consider myself a Paleo eater, let alone Primal. I just try to stick with whole,organic, natural-raised foods, as best I can.
