    Women who followed a Paleolithic (Paleo) diet lost an average of 7 lbs in four weeks (4.3% of their body weight) compared to 2.6 lbs (1.7% of their body weight) for women following a standard Australian diet as recommended by The Australian National Health and Medical Research Council according to a new study from researchers at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia.

    The Paleo diet “encourages consumption of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts and eggs”, while “all products of agricultural origin, grains, legumes and dairy are excluded” the paper notes.

    Calories Consumed: 1413 calories vs 1590 calories

    Women on the Paleo diet consumed an average of 1413 calories per day compared to 1590 for those following the standard Australian diet.

    Subjects: 39 healthy women, 47 years old, BMI 27

    The study involved 39 healthy women who, on average, were 47-years-old and had a body mass index (BMI) of 27.

    Twenty-two (22) women were randomly assigned to the Paleolithic diet, and 17 were assigned to the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating diet for four weeks.
