Brierley asks: Have you had success losing weight with any of these diets?


I've been on the Paleo diet for 5 months now, have lost 35 pounds and haven't felt this great in years. I recently got extensive blood work done and everything had improved. Your write up was completely innacurate and embarassing to read. There are no cheat meals in a true Paleo diet. Read Robb Woff's book and learn.

It is wrong to publish that dairy are our sources for calcium and vitamin D when it has been proved that all that is just marketing. The dairy industry needs to make people think that they may get osteoporosis for not drinking milk. That is false. The milk we find in the market were enriched with Vitamin D, that means that milk on its own has not Vitamin D and Calcium is only in small quantities. In addition, every species should stick to that their mothers produce, therefore, milk from cows should be consumed by their babies, calves.

Completely wrong about the dukan diet. Obliviously the author lacked in their research. You can eat dairy. As long as it is fat free or under 5% fat. Make sure there are no added sugars too. 18 oz a day is recommended as the max amount of milk based foods per day.

So because dairy is eschewed, Paleo is bad?? There are plenty of other ways to get vitamin d and calcium without it. Kudos for not trying to rip it apart like every other "nutrition expert" though.

Paleo diet is not high protein... it's moderate protein... You don't have to go strict paleo and can introduce raw milk butter and raw milk cheeses (or pasteurized if your from the uSA).

You are totally misinforming people about the raw diet. Studies support that a plant based diet reduces your risk for cancer and heart disease. You are stating the opposite of these studies by encouraging people to eat meat and dairy products. I suggest you contact Dr. Neil Barnard and his extensive research of the benefits of a plant based diet.

This is why our country is in big trouble. The nutritionist who wrote this article is so misinformed I fear for the readers that follow her advice. Nothing more to really say about this article - what a joke.

The only problem is that you didn't read these books. If you did you would be more educated. You would know that not only does milk destroy the lining of our intestines and promote autoimmune disorders. It also helps create a poor acid/basic environment which leeches calcium out of our bones aka osteoporosis. Not to mention, there are tons of vegetables and meats (mainly fish) that provide a much more absorbable form of calcium.

I'm following the dukan diet, I find it really easy to follow, I have been eating dairy whilst on it. Three weeks and I have lost almost three kgs. I'm in the second phase and and you get one cheat day which I find more satisfyed, knowing I have something to look forward to. My only suggestion is to research before to try, and consult you Dr. As I have herd some horror stories from people who have done this diet.
