I also think it's important to get clarity about the differences. But although this makes it easier to understand what hunger is and why most of us are "hungry" almost all the time, it is still hard to overcome lifelong habits to be able to make a transition.

Absolutely.  But once we're off the dime, we can make smart choices that leave us less hungry and more satisfied.

" it is still hard to overcome lifelong habits to be able to make a transition"

I have only been eating this way for a week. I didn't eat terribly poorly before, just not specifically high fat and low carb. I had reached a point where my constant hunger was so unquenchable I was willing to try anything. So I decided to try high fat low carb.

I've felt strange all week. This afternnon I was sitting in the sun, it was after lunch. For the 5th day in a row I didn't eat any lunch and didn't want any lunch. I was suddenly aware that my mind had nothing to do. No hunger to think about, no foreplanning for how I was going to get food if I got hungry. No preoccupation with food in any way. Nothing. I felt sort of lost. What am I supposed to think about?

I suppose my constant hunger has given me an eating disorder of sorts because I feel like an addict who lost the stimulous for the drug but has nothing to take its place. Has anyone written about this? Maybe this is branching too far into psychology to be a topic for the paleo folks, but it seems like an interesting topic.

Diane:

No, you're not alone.

I hear this from a lot of people...they spend most of their time thinking about food, getting or preparing food, in a state of "food coma", or being hungry for food. It's very liberating when you realize that food no longer runs your life...but suddenly you find yourself at loose ends.

Now what?

There's very likely to be a list of things you've always wanted to do, but never did because you didn't have time.  Well, now you do!  So it might be time to step back and do a short evaluation: make a list over the next few days, and then decide which of those long-deferred goals and dreams you could pursue with your new-found time and energy.

Hope this helps!  Keep us posted.
