Has anyone actually tried the Paleodiet before? I like the science behind it and it makes sense. I started the day with a couple of Paleomuffins my wife was kind enough to make for me and they weren't bad. I was just wondering what success others may have had with this.

For me the paleo diet is the best. I have always had problems with hypoglycemia and now that is gone. Paleo is not low carb, but it alleviates the grains which was a big trigger for me. I try to stay low carb for my diet, but definitely plan on introducing higher carb vegetables and fruits once I reach my goal weight. I also agree with the idea that grains cause systemic inflammation as my hip pain has been gone shortly after I quit eating them. I'm an 80/20 kind of girl, so I'm not super duper strict, but I've found that eating this way is easy and very natural and I don't miss the grains at all.

I eat primal, which is an offshoot of paleo and allows for full fat dairy. If you do it right, it becomes a lifestyle, not a diet. Transitioning into this way of eating was one of the best decisions of my life and I can't see myself ever going back to the Standard American Diet. Try it for a month and see the results in energy and body composition and overall health Smile

I have to admit, I'm a little intrigued by this Paleo diet - a guy I went to high school with has adapted this type of lifestyle and says his chronic stomach/GI pain has vanished since the change.. I've been pretty consistently losing weight just counting calories and working out, but I wonder if this would improve my overall health that much more.. I need to do some more research..


Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.

I could more or less be considered to be on a type of paleo diet. The biggest thing is to avoid grains. I'm currently reading the Primal Blueprint and it is a pretty good book, not to heavy on the science but it really shines on the practical aspect of doing the diet. I've heard that Robb Wolf's book "The Paleo Solution" is heavy on the science if that is what you are into. And Dr. Loren Cordain just came out with a new book called "The Paleo Answer" which is a follow up to his original book "The Paleo Diet". From what I understand the original "Paleo Diet" isn't as well regarded as some of the newer books since this whole 'movement' is evolving the newer books contains the latest research.

The biggest thing to know about the paleo diets is that they are based on science. However much of the nutritional science is deeply flawed, so where current science doesn't provide an answer they look to what we know of paleolithic man for clues.

It is much more complicated than can be summed up in a form posting. Check this link out for detailed information.

The basic idea is to eat how we would have done for thousands of years while we were evolving, avoiding grains and dairy etc that we have only really come to consume since agriculture increased. It goes against many people perceptions of how fat effects health and weight with it playing some vital roles in the paleo diet. In summary, the paleo diet is meats, vegetables and foraging foods such as nuts, mushrooms etc.
