Getting “The Skinny” on Getting Skinny With the Paleo/Primal Diet

by Ravi

If you click around the Paleo/Primal Diet world, it’s pretty hard to miss all the exceptional stories of weight loss and, in fact, that many people try and love the paleo diet for that very reason (besides all the great tasting food you get to eat!).

It takes a bit of mental gymnastics to “get” this one central premise (after a generation of bad conditioning) – but …

eating meat and fat DOES NOT MAKE YOU FAT!*

*unless (of course) you are stuffing down several Big Macs and a shake combining refined carbs, sugar and cheap fatty meat all in one horrid meal!

Since a picture is worth that thousand words – and it would take me a long time to crank out 1000 words per pic of these amazing ones, I decided to just post a whole lotta before-after real people pics that have appeared on a variety of sites, many with their stories included.  I’ve linked their story or original post in the link next to their names.

The DaiaSolGaia take on the paleo/primal diet is explained here.

What’s so impressive about eating from the evolutionary perspective – as best we can formulate – is that the human body seeks and reaches it’s optimum – which for men is a lean, muscular build (and ripped with some workout time) and for women, a ever-so-slightly fuller but still lean body (and modestly muscular with a little workout).  ALL this is achieved – for most people – WITHOUT calorie counting – it just does not matter if you sincerely avoid the carbs (sugars and grains) and all refined foods! The human body – fed the right evolutionarily correct foods – will find the optimum (and lean) weight FOR YOU –  without complex brain-strain (or will-power-breaking)  dietary detail!

We purchase **fabulous** meats from US Wellness Meats: excellent quality grass fed, no antibiotic, no hormone meat products –

So here goes – without further adieu, Daiasolgaia salutes the success of these wonderful people and the generous candor in sharing these pics with the internet world:
