    I have mentioned the neanderthal diet to guys on here trying to lose weight. I tried it the first time almost two years ago and lost around 15 lbs in around 45 days. I just tried it again and lost 10 lbs, which I am not to happy about cus i'm trying to gain weight /muscle again not just lose fat.

    This is not a starvation diet..You eat all that you want of non-manmade foods. I recommend it to anybody trying to lose weight that does not want to count calories.

    Simply put, you can eat anything or amount you want but nothing man made. No processed carbs...bread, pasta, cake, cookies etc. No processed sugar..no "juice"or soft drinks..no processed grains..I.E. white rice. What you do eat is meat,veggies,nuts, fruits,ois and cheese (its the only exception to the man-made rule)

    Combined with regular exercise you body weight goes into a free fall.

    I've never quite heard of that diet.. but I guess it would make sense. But I'm a little suspicious of it for one reason. Not because I don't think it works.. but the reason why it does. I mean.. hear me out..

    Most processed /man made foods are the ones with the most calories, fat, and general bad stuffs in them. So basically you're just telling people to eat healthier? If you take someone who regularly eats fast food, and then they start eating non-man made foods, then it only makes sense that they'll lose weight.. not because they're eating like a neanderthal. But because compared to what they normally eat, eating like a neanderthal is simply eating better.

    I've always been a firm believer in that people don't have to go on clever diets just to lose weight. They simply just have to be intelligent about what they do eat. At it's core, this diet is good advice for anybody trying to lose weight. I guess I'm just slightly suspicious /hostile towards it because it's been coined with such a gimmick name like "The Neanderthal Diet"

    Alpha13 said cheese (its the only exception to the man-made rule)

    Cheese is the only exception? Why is cheese so special?
