Any of you guys gone the paleo route? I haven't swallowed the whole 'pill' but I'm going w/ the spirit of it for the past 2 weeks. Pretty much limited my beer intake to about 2 or 3 beers/week. No more grains/carbs, which is hard cuz I like my cheese and bread. No more processed foods, sugars, etc.

I've been eating a HUGE amount of protein to make up for the loss of carb volume. Lots of vegetables. We have a Sodastream soda maker at home so I use that to make plain soda water which curbs the beer thirst and 'some' of the snack desires. My breakfast is pretty much some version of 2 eggs w/ some other meat and a double espresso. Works great since it's carries me to my lunch time crossfit workout. Been having a lot of bun-less burgers, which turns out to be pretty easy, since removing the bun (and cheese, which I usually don't) makes it paleo.

I can't say if I necessarily feel better. BUT, when ever I have anything more than 1 serving of carbs (rice/tortillas/bread/etc) I feel bloated for the next few hours. W/o all the carbs, I tend to feel a bit lighter on my feet, more alert. I never did the Atkins years ago, too many bad stories. I saw WAY too many friends lose TONS of weight, only to gain it back and more since that was not a lifelong, sustainable diet.

The only “diets” I’ve tried are a protein sparing modified fast (PSMF) and the Ultimate Diet 2 (UD2). I tried both of them (UD2 only for a week) to cut 7 lbs. of body fat over 17 days (14 total days of dieting). As far as regular eating or even doing a slow cut (200-500 kCal/day restriction) I don’t see doing Paleo as it just doesn’t fit my lifestyle so I don’t think I would find it sustainable.

Atkins or any other low carb/high protein diet(I don't like Atkins, it allows too much fatty food) should be used to drop weight but once the weight is off you have to follow the program to a 'T', which is to bring back in the carbs slowly to find that threshhold amount that starts the body adding pounds again, once that point is reached you are no longer dieting but on a sensible eating regime that should be followed for a lifetime; most people never do this so the weight piles back on.

Jason, I agree w/ you on the Atkins. I never saw anyone on that for long periods.

However, paleo is a much more sustainable diet, granted it's only become more popular in the last few years. It's a huge component of the crossfit community. The problem w/ the Atkins is that there was no restrictions on processed foods, sugars and alcohol. BTW I don't follow paleo completely, but I do adhere more to the spirit.

If you're interested, my obsessive blogging friends write a lot about it.

http://www.fitbomb.com/p/why-i-eat-paleo.html

And his wife shows that eating this way can actually be tasty as opposed to restrictive.

The purpose of Atkins was to lose weight. Paleo aims to have you eat better by eliminating processed foods. Will you lose weigh eating paleo? Not on it's own but you may lose weight and you'll definitely feel better.

Wow - it's hard to click off the fitbomb site! What a great introduction to paleo dieting.

Incidentally, I've been doing 'Protein Power' for 7 years. (Your friend mentions the authors in his post). I think Jakewash's got it exactly right - if you think short-term, it's never going to work out for you. But if you learn about the fundamentals behind why the program works, and make the lifelong adjustment once you understand what your body needs, it can work beautifully.

Like oldskoolboarder, I don't follow the program completely (a girl needs a little chocolate now and then!) but I do work on keeping our house stocked with 'food that doesn't have ingredients'. And my cholesterol check in January rocked my doc on his heels - best cholesterol they'd seen in 6 months smile

I've been incorporating some of the workout stuff from Tim Ferris's '4 Hour Body' into my workouts this year - have any of you heard of it / tried it? It's incredible how quickly kettlebell swings bring definition and strength from your toes to your fingertips! Okay, I don't look like Grunt, but . . . loving it anyway!

Hi Fred! I *do* have those cool little grooves in the front of my shoulders, though. It's a start!
