Paleo Vs Keto Diet: What’s The Difference?

Paleo vs Keto: What’s the difference between the diets? Everyone is always looking for the quickest way to lose weight. Whether it be low-fat, low-carb, high-fat or high protein, there can be something valuable in whichever diet you choose. I’d just like to quickly say, I don’t believe that there is one diet that’s right for everyone. Those who are trying to sell you one diet as the be-all-end-all are a little too one sided in my opinion. That said, there are some very effective ways to drop weight fast using the Paleo Diet or the Ketogenic Diet. “Paleo vs Keto” …often, these diets get lumped together in the same category. While they have a lot of similarities, they also have a lot of differences. If you’re stumbling upon this blog via a google search marathon on how to lose weight fast, I completely understand why you might be confused right now. Let me help you understand the difference between the Paleo Diet and the Ketogenic Diet. The Paleo Diet (Quick Background) When thinking whether to go Paleo vs Keto, you’ll need to know a little history of both.

    I'm trying to understand what the difference is between all of the above. Many, many years ago, I did Atkins and had good success with that program. I read the getting started and it seems that keto is higher fat than either of the programs I listed. South Beach is lower fat and less restrictive on whole food carbs. Is there an easy to sum up difference between all of these plans?

    Keto and Atkins induction (based on the latest Atkins book) are very similar. I would argue that they are essentially the same, but the keto guidelines here on /r/keto and what you see in the Atkins book will vary a bit. They both limit net carbs to about 20 grams, limit protein consumption to a set amount based on sex/height, and leave the rest as fat.
    Paleo is like keto except the carb counts are higher, more like 100 grams depending on what "version" of paleo you're subscribing to. Paleo also tends to focus on foods that were available to our paleolithic ancestors, and so it avoids foods such as dairy and grains. Lacto-paleo is paleo with dairy. The definitions of what paleo means can vary quite a bit.
    I've never read about South Beach.
