    I'd love to hear some thoughts on this topic, I'm currently looking for a diet to follow for a 8 weeks to reach goal and I wonder if KETO is better or PALEO. I'm so confused.

    This guy has done a lot of studying of the ketogenic diet:

    I have lightly looked into this type of diet. Once you stop following the keto diet, any loss in fat you achieved comes right back once you go back to your old eating habits. In terms of practicality and enjoying a more varied diet you should probably stick with a paleo diet.

    The Paleo diet is way too draconian for anyone to follow. There are too many taboos in the paleo diet. Plus following either the paleo or keto diets can get very expensive.

    Just learn to not let your snout stay in the trough for too long. (Which has always been my problem, but at my age I'm not worrying about it too much. icon_lol.gif )

    You're being a little dramatic. Draconian? Avoiding processed foods is a very good idea. You can eat almost all fruits and most vegetables, fresh meats, eggs. And depending on whom you ask, some paleo diets allow dairy. My diet is almost paleo but I do allow myself some wheat now and then. I not only enjoy some wheat products simply for their taste but I also find that it helps me hold onto some bulk. If I were to completely eliminate grains I would lose too much weight and I don't want that.
