  1. hi, it’s very interesting. maybe this is how breathearianism works, in this way it makes some sense to me. you think that you’re full and you becoming full only because you thought about this. its confusing when you think about it…

  2. So true!!
    About a month ago, I was on vacation with some friends and they wanted to buy me a latte. (Before this I had acually been really hungry) At the counter, my friend ordered a latte made with half&half, explaining to me that it made it really creamy and DELISH. That was fine so, I drank it and…It was REALLY wonderful, decadent, nourishing, FATTY, but you know what? After that I didn’t get hungry again for HOURS! For hours I had a warm, fuzzy and comforting feeling in my tummy. Talk about awesome, huh?!

  3. I have been doing Paleo for about 6 weeks now but still find I crave suger immedietley after eating. It doesn’t seem to matter how many healthy carbs or protein I eat the craving is unstoppable. I cant eat to much in one sitting as it makes my body weak digestive system. I take enzymes every time I eat and slippery elm every day. Also grape fruit extract for possible SIBO symptoms, have severe stomache bloating and constipation. Tried taking chromium supplements but I found they made me ill. Even taking them with food. Am thinking of trying Nystatin long term suspecting a bad candida overgrowth. I have increased my good fats like butter and coconut oil at every meal too. Have put on 3 kilos! Any suggestions? meg
