If you are wondering what the difference is between the paleo diet and the keto diet, this post helps to break it down so you can make the right choice for your body. As with any new diet regimen, be sure to speak with your doctor.
We’re all looking for ways to eat well and to eat within a budget, too. Two diets—one of them created as a medical response to a disease, the other as a claim to ancient roots of humans—have gained traction in any discussions about nutrition and eating. Let’s take a closer look at them.
Ketogenic diets are the eating plans that many people with epilepsy use to help try to reduce the frequency or severity of seizures. The diets help to starve the body of unnecessary carbs, forcing the liver to generate something called ketos, which are released into the bloodstream instead of sugars. Paleo adherents, on the other hand, claim to be eating the same things that our ancient ancestors ate around cave fires (and that they killed themselves).
While the diets bear some similarities to one another, they are also different in key ways. This graphic explains it.
