    Heavy carb? Carbs do not keep you as full as protein might, maybe you should have "heavy protein" meals! That's what I do and they keep me full for 7 to 8 hours straight!

    The same exact thing happened to me. I was hungry all the time in the beginning. All I had to do was add a lot more fat and now I eat only 2 meals a day, sometimes one and I am never hungry. I am not overweight so its not like I have a big reserve. I would try eating more avocado, coconut whipped cream with berries, nuts or nut butter, egg yolks, grassfed butter, coconut oil, etc. It worked for me. IF also helped me with my hunger.

    I just don't really eat fruit... I suppose my fear of hurting all of the work ive put into getting really lean. I had some banana and mango smoothie last weekend and my body couldn't handle the fructose.

    Just for clarity, I am not advocating snacking as a long term strategy but rather as an interim measure until the OP gets weight stable at a good spot.

    In the way that I felt like I was on cocaine, eyes were bugging out of my head and the "come down" made me feel sick

    Hmm ok. So have you had problem with fruit before?

    This sounds like a super extreme response to what should be a low toxic food.

    I'd be interested to other people's comments on this.

    I agree my response is strange... 15 months ago I used to eat apple's, berries, oranges, peaches and nectarines often with no ill effect

    I am experiencing the same problem. I am fairly new to the primal/paleo concept, however I have been eating similarly for years; avoiding most grains and dairy but loading up on veggies. I have recently started adding more protein because I am big into lifting and realized I wasn't giving my muscles enough to recover properly. I have cut out all grains and dairy now but I am still hungry. I am striving to get 1 gram of protein per pound with more lean meats and even protein shakes but I am still hungry! I am also worried that I am not eating enough calories. I usually workout 6 days a week with a mix of heavy lifting, HIIT and other forms of cardio. Any ideas on what I can add to my diet?

    Anytime I have a lot of carbs in the morning my hunger is uncontrollable all day. I do much better on a high protein/high fat meal for breakfast. Save your carbs for the evening meal.
