The Paleo diet also known as the Palaeolithic diet is a simple eating plan that can help a slimmer lose weight fast. It advises dieters to avoid all forms of sugar, soft drinks, grains, most dairy products, legumes as well as vegetable oils and margarine.
She said: “The Paleo diet Andy will be filing up on lots of eggs with omelettes and frittata for breakfast, soups and salad for lunch, grilled meat or fish with veg for dinner and fruit and yoghurt for desert.”
Dr Amir Khan added: “This means everything he eats will be natural, lean and clean, his snacks will become dried fruit and nuts and he will have to swap his fatty kebabs for lean meat and fish.”
The only way to lose weight however, is through a calorie deficit.
This means that the body is burning more calories than it is consuming and the only way to do this is through exercising more and eating less.
The doctor explained that although beer is usually permitted on the diet, he won’t be allowing it for the participant because he wants him to lose as much weight as possible.
Healthline states that alcohol is often ‘empty’ calories meaning that they provide the body with little nutrients but are high in calories.
There are almost 155 calories in one 12-ounce can of beer and in comparison, this is the same amount of calories as what an evening snack should be.
Consuming a huge amount of beer could also result in putting on a large amount of fat around the belly area.
Healthline explained: “Food high in simple sugars, such as those found in candy, sofa, and even beer, are also high in calories. Extra calories end up stored as fat in the body.
“Consuming foods and drinks high in sugar can quickly lead to weight gain.
“We can’t choose where all that extra weight ends up. But the body tends to accumulate fat in the abdominal area.”
Dark chocolate which is 70 percent cocoa or higher is also allowed on the diet because quality dark chocolate is very nutritious.
There are also now several different versions of the paleo diet and many of them allow some modern foods that science suggest are healthy.
According to Healthline this includes grass-fed butter and even some gluten-free grains like rice.
