I’ve tested pretty much most of the ‘diets’ and each of them has something that I liked, in Paleo diet it must be the raw desserts!
In short, whichever diet you go for, in order to lean up you can’t just eat without limit. Whatever the diet is in order to lose weight the calories in have to be less than the calories out. The reason it’s not actually easy to over-eat on Paleo diet is because your food will be unprocessed and quite natural. This means large volumes but fewer calories. Imagine what 260 calories chocolate bar can be replaced with on Paleo diet? For example with massive bowl of salad made with various vegetables, 2 eggs, lemon, spices and some nuts or olive oil. However as I said to really lean-up you would still need to count your calories. Because you are eating whole healthy foods this means even if you had leptine issues (‘hunger hormone’) it will gradually calm down and your body will be better at controlling your hunger.
What can you eat on Paleo diet:
- Grass produced meat
- Fish and eggs
- Fruits and vegetables
- Nuts and seeds
- Healthy fats such as oils, avocados etc
What’s not allowed:
- Processed food
- Refined sugar
It looks quite easy, and I’ve managed to stick to it for a while, however the reason it did not work for me, was simply because after eating non-Paleo for so many years it was just difficult to completely cut out the bread, sugar and diary. So my advice is, if you want to go Paleo then allow some cheat meals, like with any other diet. Grains have some benefits which you may not get when on diet, perhaps so does dairy. If you focus on healthy cheat meals then your body will signal to you what is it that you are actually missing. To me this was always rice, porridge and brown roll with cheese. Good luck
