How my calories should I be eating each day?

The paleo idea is to turn from a carb burning body to a fat burning body. If you limit your carbs to between 100 and 150 a day, your body is forced to access fat stores to convert into energy. The reason you get so hungry in between meals is your body used up all its carbs and is not yet a fat burning machine, so you get mega hungry, especially if you are working out. Try it! You will probably feel like crap the first few days while your body adjusts and then your hunger will decrease a lot!


Everything Shelly said is true, the first couple of days are the worst but if you can push through you will see the benefits. For me the most startling thing was the bowel evacuations, I suppose it must be because when you are using many breads and such you retain more water; without dire urgency I went 6 times over the first day and 6 times immediately after waking the second day. On the 3rd day movements were normal and productive and judging by thirst I was well hydrated... just hang in there Surprised
