YES LILY fat and protien stop hunger where carbs can fuel it and make it worse. My celery and mayo/hot sauce dip helps because it is fat and minimal carbs with fiber (also slows hunger).

I'd like to add this FWIW:

I see over and over, physical trainers (who eat Paleo) say that when you're hungry, eat PROTEIN and FAT first, then turn to some fruit, veg. Obviously, fruit and veg are healthy and contain enzymes that help us digest protein and fat but I think this is in reference to HUNGER.

I snack on food. As in, if its 10 a.m and I"m hungry I'll hvae part of my lunch early. Meats, are a good one. Apples are a good snack, and easy to carry.

I agree with Cindy and Ramona on the snacks. I have found that I stay full a long time eating like this. It's not unusual to look up at 1 pm and realize I haven't had lunch and I am still not hungry.

The key is to be prepared. The hardest part for me about Paleo is that there is no convenience food unless you make them or make sure you have them available. Hardboiled eggs are my absolute go to. Never snack on just a carb. Always match a carb wtih a protein. The carb satisfies the immediate need (fruit or celery or such) and the protein ensures you will stay full long. Cans or pouches of tuna and salmon are great.

Best wishes!

Sweat is just your fat crying!

emoticon I eat a lot of cut up veggies for snacks. When I get bored with them, like carrots and celery, I dip them in homemade dressings.

Love the flow chart Lily!

Hi!

Here's a blog I did this week that's kinda funny but true and may be helpful. It's a flowchart for Paleo. :)

Can you eat coconut? Unsweetened coconut flakes are amazing. Unsweetened, dried fruit is also good in moderation.

Beef Jerky, if you can find a gluten free variety, is a great and filling snack.

So, today was my first day trying out this lifestyle and it's been not as hard as I expected. What I'm seeing could be challenging in the future, is getting bored!
I'm a coffee junkie, and I'm just coming to terms with the fact that all of my caffiene fixes will be green tea (which I adore to begin with). But, I'm also a HUGE snacker! What kinds of things do you find easiest to snack on-the-go?
*I also have a nut allergy, which seems to slim my options...
