    Abaddon, exercise is not needed for fat loss but It is good for general health.

    On the off chance that you need to get incline, thin and slim, eat like a cave dweller - that is the reason of the Paleo diet. Devotees of the Paleo diet eat how people as far as anyone knows ate a huge number of years back, with an emphasis on creature items like meat and fish, alongside a lot of vegetables, foods grown from the ground. While the Paleo eating routine might be more advantageous than the normal American's eating regimen, getting in shape isn't a given when transitioning to a Paleo arrangement.

    The Fullness Factor

    Feeling full is one of the greatest venturing stones in getting in shape. It doesn't make a difference how solid your self discipline is - sooner or later, in case you're feeling hungry, you will collapse. In a study led at the Center for Primary Health Care Research in Sweden, scientists found that subjects on a paleolithic eating routine reported more prominent sentiments of satiety than those on a customary eating regimen in view of rules suggested for diabetics.

    Segment Control

    Numerous individuals are sucked into the Paleo method for eating in a conviction that they can eat as much as they prefer. While Paleo-accommodating nourishments, for example, vegetables, poultry, incline red meat, fish and berries might be low in calories, this doesn't mean you can eat a boundless sum. Rather than numbering calories, control your calorie consumption by lessening your bit sizes and just eating until you feel fulfilled. In case you're not getting more fit, lessening your serving sizes.

    Pressing in the Protein

    he Paleo eating routine is high in protein alongside being higher in fat and lower in sugars. A study distributed in a 2008 release of the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" found that a higher protein admission expands satiety, builds calorie smolder and advances muscle upkeep and fat misfortune. By including a Paleo protein at each feast, you expand your general protein consumption, which could possibly accelerate weight reduction.

    Cave dweller Weight Loss Solutions

    On the off chance that you've changed to an all out Paleo eating regimen and still aren't getting more fit, don't stress - you can in any case roll out improvements to kick-begin your weight reduction. You could even now be eating excessively, notes nutritionist Mark Sisson of Mark's Daily Apple site. Nuts, nut spreads and oils might have medical advantages and be Paleo-affirmed, yet they're still high in calories. While Paleo bans grains and refined sugars, you could be trying too hard on the organic product front, includes Sisson. Take a stab at swapping natural products for dull green vegetables, or disposing of higher sugar organic products like pineapple, mango and apples and choosing berries. Changing to leaner meat and fish over greasy hamburger, pork, salmon and mackerel can cut your calories as well.

    Any diet works for weight loss. Personally, I don't get why people choose diets, rather than just eat natural food and stay in a caloric deficit. Every diet basically limits yourself in something, which is stupid.

    I actually have lost lots of weight on the paleo diet because it's quite filling so I was not craving fast food and sweets

    I for one think the club mentality is one of the upsides of paleo mainly because it gets people to feel like they are part of a community. This is fantastic for anyone just starting to change aspects of their life.

    As for the diet itself, the main upside is the emphasis on food quality and reliance on whole food sources (as opposed to meal replacements) making behavioural changes easier.

    BUT you won't necessarily lose weight on paleo if you're not in a deficit.

    Paleo is a great way to lose weight! I lost 50lbs back in 2o12 by following the basics of the paleo diet.

    I stopped following the paleo diet and have done some experimenting and have gained some of that weight back, a lot of it as muscle, but I still struggle with a flabby belly. I'm currently losing weight again by applying what I've learned! Here's what I learned from the diet

    1. The paleo diet is a great place to start because it cuts out all the junk food.
    Most people would be served well by a grainless diet, because most people eat way too many grains!

    2. The paleo diet is just a diet. it's not historically accurate and It's not the healthiest diet in the world.
    The paleo diet is a gateway diet. By getting involved in the paleo community, I have learned a few key lessons:
    • Quantity matters, but it's not black and white
      Not everyone needs to eat a high protein diet or a high carb diet. Some people do better with one or the other. Some people feel absolutely sick eating too much protein or absolutely awful eating too many carbs. Everyone's and individual.
    • Legumes and grains are good for you, you just need to learn to prepare them properly.
      Legumes and grains contain phytates/antinutrients, which are not bad for you, but if you eat grains and legumes frequently, they will cause you health problems. You need to soak them overnight to eliminate the antinutrients
    • Saturated fat is good for you
      Perhaps the most controversial subject
    • Exercise isn't all it's cut out to be
      Learn to relax by doing tai chi and less intense exercise is great too.
    • Calorie cutting isn't everything, but it does play a part

    As always, if you are interested in paleo, or any other diet, try it for a few months or a year and see how it goes!

    Personally for me, it was amazing. But, you must combine it with exercising (wights & aerobic activity)

    I am not into named diets. I am too skeptical for that. There is too many scams, too big of an incentive for people to invent diets to fool others into buying their product.

    Also, I don't agree with the most foundational ideas of paleo. First, there wasn't a single paleo diet. It varied a lot between regions, and through the seasons. Basically, people just ate what was available (at least in the times of scarcity). Second, the diet commits the naturalistic fallacy; it seems to assume that, if it's found in nature, it's better than if it's not, which is easily debunked (I could do that, if you like. It's late so I am finishing this post now :)). Although I am not saying that the modern diet is good. It's pretty bad actually, as we all know.

    I am not saying that paleo is not any good. It could be great. But I don't agree with it's basic ideas, and therefore I won't do it. But it's good to hear that it's working for some people.

    t may turn out that I may incorporate many paleo things in my diet, or not. I am still in a learning process, so I don't know. But I do know that I will not follow any diets with names. I create my own, and I won't sell it. My approach to improving my diet is just using common sense, and solid science.

    Give yourself at least 30 days before you start looking for measurable results. Instead, focus on how you’re feeling, your energy levels, and how your clothes are fitting. Often you’ll notice these changes before the number on the scale starts moving.

    Some Paleo enthusiasts like to add caveman style workouts to their eating, lifting heavy weights, and doing sprints in intervals. You can also go gatherer-style, and take a long walk each day. No matter which activity you choose, when you combine more activity with proper eating weight loss is the byproduct if you’re overweight.

    Not to sound like a broken record, but Paleo works great for weight loss IF you combine it with exercise and more specifically (at least in my opinion) interval training. And more specifically still, once you can push yourself a little more, high intensity interval training (a.k.a. HIIT).

    I think one interesting point that should be made is that ketogenic and paleo diets are not the same thing.

    Paleo diet allows you to actually consume high quality carbohydrate sources as much as you like, however the balance tends to almost be split 33%/33%/33% for macronutrient distribution. Also, because there are no refined sugars on the "allowed list", it means you are generally getting high quality sources of micronutrients. If you are disciplined with these food choices and match caloric intake and expenditure smartly, i think this is personally one of the best ways to eat and maintain general health.

    Ketogenic dieting is something else and whilst many people find it sustainable and it has shown health benefits, it requires a rapidly reduced carbohydrate content which forces the body to start producing ketone bodies to aid preferential fuel selection. This is currently one of the more controversial methods of eating out there - whether it is the right way or wrong way probably depends on circumstance and health.

    To answer the question in one sentence - paleo dieting can be extremely useful for weight loss and maintaining general health :)

    But common, excessive amounts of carbohydrates - one of the main reasons of overweight. It's happens because human body cannot use all of the energy from that carbo's.
    Isn't it?

    I think you've nailed this one on the head already... Excessive amounts of BOTH fat and carbohydrate will make you fat. The only macro nutrient shown to not induce body fat increases when taken way beyond recommended daily intake is actually protein... and this was recently shown by an american research group.

    Both fat and carbohydrate provide energy in different forms (fat is stored in muscle as intramuscular triglycerides & carbohydrate breaks down to glucose and stores as muscle glycogen).

    If you exceed the caloric requirement needed to replenish these stores and maintain an energy balance day-by-day - the remainder of those "excessive" calories will usually result in adiposity (increases in body fat) - regardless of whether that comes form carb or fat intake.

    It is important to consider the fact that energy expenditure, individual variation in muscle glycogen storage capacity and fat oxidation rates during exercise all vary within individuals. Regardless, none of these factors necessarily would lead to an excessive intake of carbohydrate - that is something that can be managed quite easily. I would certainly argue against a paleo type carbohydrate strategy (approx. 33% intake of total daily intake) being anywhere close to excessive - providing total daily energy intake is matched suitability to your activity levels and body size.

    Im still yet to see a convincing piece of evidence that shows a total disparity between total energy intake / expenditure and putting on body fat. The media will hype on about carbohydrate being the route of all evil, but carbohydrate intake can generally benefit adaptation to training if eaten periodically and sensibly. As far as the research goes - the adequate diet (involving some carbohydrate) tends to win. Happy to discuss if you have some interesting evidence that would put me in my place on this...
