Paleo is a lifestyle, not a weight loss diet

Losing weight is the most popular new year’s resolution for Brits, according to a recent YouGov survey, with improving diet not far behind in fourth place.

Many people take on dieting as a means to achieving these goals, but the success rates of diets are quite disappointing, with other research suggesting that as many as 90% of diets end in failure.

It is easy to understand why so many diets fail. A combination of unrealistic expectations and promises could mean that dieters do not meet their weight loss targets, which can be discouraging. Also, some diets may not be well suited to a dieter’s lifestyles, or could be quite regimental and demanding. leading to a loss of will power.

Paleo, on the other hand, is a way of life that encourages people to make healthier food choices. Named after the Paleolithic era of the caveman, the main aim of a paleo lifestyle is to “eat like a caveman”. It’s all about replacing high-calorie and processed foods with one that cavemen could hunt down back in their era, like meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables.

You are more likely to succeed with a paleo lifestyle than a typical diet, because paleo focuses on:

• Improving overall health rather than just weight loss

• Eating in the right way rather than calorie counting

• Promoting wellbeing rather than feelings of guilt from breaching dietary dos and don’ts
