Paleo with Cravings: Protein Shakes or PMS?

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Trying to determine if cravings last week were related to PMS, Protein Shakes, or both! Hmm... Guess I'll have to experiment this week with a protein shake for breakfast and see if I end up having cravings for the rest of the day... But not today! Breakfast was beef with peppers and cucumbers....

There are only 4 sugars in the shake - but as a Paleo, to me they taste every bit as sweet as a fast food milk shake!

Any other people out there who try to avoid sugar/sweetners find the "sweet" taste of protein meal replacement shakes throw you into cravings?

    I recently tried someone's recipe for a smoothie that actually did fill me up, as she claimed it would. But usually a smoothie would leave me hungry.

    I don't drink shakes. I live on fiber one bars for meal replacement.

    For me, it's not the sweet taste that does it. I generally use fruit only as sweetening. There's just something about a liquid meal, however substantial, that doesn't say "I've had a whole meal."
