    Default What to do: Carbs, or skipping meals?

    Pretty much everyone's suggested that I go "paleo" and not eat any carbs. However, considering that I'm living in a college dorm with a dining hall, this may lead to me going hungry... a lot.

    However, apparently because I'm at risk for becoming diabetic I'm unable to process carbohydrates. Is it better to avoid carbohydrates and skip meals, or eat and possibly become diabetic?

    Too bad they haven't invented anything like a store where you can buy food. Oh well....

    Yes, eat meals without carbs. Why wouldn't you be able to do that?

    You generally get used to it within the first 2 weeks. Start off with a limit of 15 grams of carbohydrates per day for 2 weeks then gradually increase the carbohydrate intake by 5 grams per week until you get to around 50 grams + or - 15 depending on the person then stick with it. When you get used to not eating carbs it will become second nature to you to choose the foods you would eat or not and the amounts so you wouldn't go beyond that limit.

    Haphazard, have you studied what you can eat on a paleo diet? You can eat eggs, meat, fish, chicken, cheese, vegetables, sugar-free Jello ... you can get all that in the dining hall, can't you?

    Not at every meal.

    Most meals I would just be eating a plate of spinach, if that much.

    Mostly I'm worried about going back to my <1000 calorie pre-anorexic diet, killing my immune system again, depression...

    Only if you're vegan, and even then just barely, and even then there's still lots of carbs.
