bmikesell2012 saidWhich one shall I do? I heard good pros and the cons of each diet. How do I pick? What do you need to look for in those diets, Please help!!!
I have tried both. I suggest you read up on both and make the decision for yourself. Both entail big lifestyle changes as any changes to changes should.
In my opinion, for sheer weight loss, you will have better results on a ketogenic diet. Google "cyclical ketogenic diet" for more information. The downside of CKD, in my opinion, is that it's more restrictive and it's very difficult if you eat out a lot. I had to bring my lunch to work every day, and it was very difficult to go out to dinner with friends. If you do any kind of endurance sports, it's very rough. I had a really hard time weight training on legs day as I'd get really light headed and out of breath.
Paleo is much easier to follow, in my opinion. You will lose weight on Paleo but it won't be as quick as leto. Paleo has a few simple rules to follow - cut out dairy, wheat, legumes, processed oils.
My suggestion is to start with Paleo. It's much easier to slide into. And then you can dabble in Keto once you feel like you have a handle on your nutrition. You can do both at the same time. Keto just means cutting your carbs way down.
I think what applies though is the #1 rule about any diet - the best diet is the one you can stick to.
