What are the merits to this diet? Is it good enough to just go low-carb/complex carb and see the same results?
For those who don't know, the Paleo diet seeks to eliminate all grains, beans, dairy and processed foods. Basically what you do eat are meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts. And very little salt. It's whole spiel is that you "eat what Paleolithic man ate" (though I don't know how much cavemen ate eggs, honestly).
Sounds pretty hard, but if high-protein, high-fibre is your goal (which is mine) it seems like the golden diet.
I'm wondering if anyone here's had some experience (or known someone who's had experience) with this diet who can give me some pointers/advice before I decide to commit to this hard-core.
