Describe your experiences with the Paleolithic (aka Caveman) diet
I have friends and family that are considering this diet, which sounds a lot like the Atkins diet to me. Has anyone tried it? Please describe and talk about its effects on sleep, energy levels, etc. How does it differ from other fad diets?
My experience was very positive. I have suggested it so several people, and those who tried it are still on it. Atkins is similar, but not the same. The paleo dieter avoids processed foods, and Atkins can include lots, they even sell them.
The main positive effects I saw were, reduced # of headaches, much improved digestive health, and reduction of aches and pains. I had an old athletic injury to my knee. After about 6 months on the diet the pain disappeared, and has not returned. This surprised me, because knee injuries rarely heal completely, and I had pain for nearly 20 years.
I also saw allergy symptoms much reduced. I believe that all of these are related to the reduction in inflammation you get once you stop eating inappropriate foods. Wheat is the primary negative. I have several Hubs that touch on diet.
Thank you! Very interesting. Glad to hear from someone who has personally tried the diet. I will go check out your hubs. Best, Steph

In the last few years, low carb diets seem to have become the "go-to" diet, especially for those looking to lose weight quickly. I'm thinking of reducing my carbs a little, but for me it's not a huge change - I simply want to try to eat more whole grains and pulses and introduce some more...
