Keto vs Paleo: Which Diet is Better for You?

Weight Control, Longer Life, Better Performance, and Enhanced Well-being Through the Paleo and Keto Diet

Studies show that the most common objective of dieting is for a person to lose excess body fat. But, there are also kinds of diet that are prescribed to achieve a medical objective. While some diets are actually designed and prescribed to increase body fat or add up to muscle weight gain.

More and more people are into losing weight because of the physical and emotional hazards that too much weight brings. Through the years, “dieting” has become one of the most popular means of losing weight in the world.

Today we’ll examine two popular diets on the podcast: Keto and Paleo.

A QUICK NOTE ON DIET AND DIETING

By definition, “dieting” refers to the practice of eating or drinking in a regulated manner in order to achieve a specific short-term objective of gaining and or losing size or weight. ‘Diet’ on the other hand refers to the habit of nutritional consumption and focuses more on a long-term goal.

The most common reason to diet is weight-loss. A weight loss diet restricts the intake of specific foods or food groups in order to reduce body weight. The others type is a weight-gain diet. These are designed to build more muscle or increase performance in a particular sport.

Aside from that, certain medical conditions require special diets. Special diets usually include, exclude, or regulate a set of certain chemicals from the foods that contain them.

Both Keto and Paleo have exploded in popularity for weight loss. Both tout numerous health benefits. And in some cases, these two diets are used interchangeably. 

But they aren’t the same.

In this episode of the Movement is Medicine show, we explore these two diets from a variety of perspectives, including special guest Becky Hoppins (an expert in hormonal health).
