For the average weight-loss warrior, comparing diets is hard to do. Fortunately, a new study ran the numbers and found that, when it comes to weight lost, Paleo wins.
For the study, researchers from the Cardiovascular Associates of Virginia Beach split 280 overweight men and women into four diet camps: Paleo, vegan, Mediterranean, and DASH (Dietary Approaches to StopÂ Hypertension). After 60 days, the researchers found that Paleo dieters lost the most: 13.3 pounds (or 6.6 percent of their body fat) on average.
Before there was the Paleo diet, there were tapeworms and sleeping diets. See these and other trendy diets throughout history.
