You’re still hungry because Paleo/Primal is not the holy grail that many make it out to be. I find that a lot of the stuff that the paleo community has to say is just fluff and often does more harm than good. What I will suggest is intermittent fasting.That’s the only way that I can stick with primal, is by fasting 16-18 hours a day. Although fasting helped me to solve the hunger issue, I’m still struggling with the lack of sleep part as well.
There are much combination ratios of proteins, fats and carbohydrates that are attainable by simply following a Paleo diet, and there is no certain variety of Paleo that is best for every person. A degree of trials has to be made to make in order to obtain that macronutrient combination suitable for your body and goals. Some individuals do not react well to the low carbohydrate version of Paleo diet while others have promising results in weight loss*. It is the same with dense foods such as healthy oils and nuts. For you to identify your right macronutrient combination, take a closer attention to how you feel and not just the scale.
Just surfin’ and found this site. I wanted to post that I’ve been losing weight with no exercise since late January. Due to fibromyalgia, my pain levels skyrocket when I exercise and I end up in worse health than if I do nothing to begin with. Exercise is my nemesis! 😉 Since January, I’m down 11 pounds while still being able to eat the foods I like and prepare for my family. I use http://www.fitday.com to record my calorie intake (the key = be HONEST in recording your food intake…no matter how many mistakes you make!!!). Check it out…it’s awesome. You can do an online search to find calculators for learning your BMI, BMR, and the Harris-Benedict Equation. These calculators will tell you what you need to know. Losing weight with no exercise is a SLOW process…don’t get discouraged! It works though. This is the first time in my adult life that I’ve tried to lose weight and am succeeding. I’m 37 years old and now weigh 231 lbs. after losing 11 lbs.
Convenience: Recipe sites and cookbooks are abundant, but you can also incorporate eating out into your Paleo plan. Alcohol is discouraged but OK in moderation. You’ll have lots of sites and books for support.

I love my carbs, but could probably give them up if egg whites and chicken are involved. However, I hate vegetables, making the rest of the diet tough. Are there any other “normal”/non-veggie foods that could be successfully integrated into the diet?
Don’t sweat it though, because you can learn all about protein, carbs and fat, and get all of the detail and explanation you desire by checking out the 3 phases of this completely free and non-commercial weight loss plan right here:
“Most women don’t want to talk about it, but you really have to set aside a specific time each day to use the bathroom,” notes Judith Reichman, M.D., a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, Los Angeles. If you don’t, it’s too easy to give into feeling rushed, and ignore the urge to go.” Once you’ve trained your brain to dismiss your body’s signals, you set the stage for bloat-inducing constipation.
Of course, a month of clean eating isn’t enough to guarantee that you won’t boomerang back to your old ways. But it’s enough time to lay the foundation for new habits and reorient your taste buds toward healthier foods, Haas says.
Great article, but could you please, oh please stop using photos of already thin, healthy, young and beautiful people for your articles on weight loss. That young woman looks like she’s never had a weight or health issue in her life. Please use real people.
The desire to lose weight must come from the individual. If you’re truly ambivalent about making changes in your lifestyle or are doing this to please someone else, you’re likely to fail. When making changes, decide what’s right for your lifestyle. Your best friend’s diet and exercise plan may be completely wrong for your health habits and interests. The key is to find a system that works for you.
2. Can you really eat any starch that you want if its right after a workout? So, for example, if I spent a half hour bodyweight exercises like squats, push ups, pull ups and the like would it then be acceptable on this plan to go out and have a big cheese burger and fries?
Most low-carb diets advocate replacing carbs with protein and fat, which could have some negative long-term effects on your health. If you do try a low-carb diet, you can reduce your risks and limit your intake of saturated and trans fats by choosing lean meats, fish and vegetarian sources of protein, low-fat dairy products, and eating plenty of leafy green and non-starchy vegetables.
Then I started freaking out about the rules. I went to a concert and had a decision to make: eat at 5:30pm, which would break my wait-five-hours-in-between-meals-rule, or wait to eat after the concert at 10pm, which would then break the don’t-eat-after-9pm-rule.
