Keto Diet vs. Paleo Diet: Which Diet is Healthiest for You- Thomas DeLauer… The idea behind the Paleolithic diet is to replicate the ways that our ancestors ate; ancestors could only hunt and gather – had little access to grains and no access to processed foods. The ketogenic diet is designed to completely alter your internal state, a state in which your body burns fat. The Keto diet was originally developed for disease management and to this day is being used for conditions such as epilepsy.
So, a paleo diet, just like a keto diet, focuses on getting fat and protein as a primary source of energy. However, the big difference is paleo doesn’t avoid carbs. While both diets came about for different reasons, they are both used (mainstream-ly) as effective tools for weight loss.

Similarities – Health Benefits

In addition to noticeable weight loss effects, collective studies from the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Internal Medicine, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, and the New England Journal of Medicine have found that both Paleo and Keto diets are effective at reducing triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar and insulin levels (1,2,3,4)
Despite providing similar health benefits, they do have some key differences.

Key Differences:
Carbs, Fats and Glucose- The main difference is that a Keto diet is truly low carb, whereas a Paleo diet is not necessarily low carb – paleo relies on glucose and keto relies on ketones
A keto diet requires you to adhere to a strict macronutrient ratio (75% fat, 20% protein, 5% carb) The paleo diet still utilizes glucose for much of its energy so carbs are still a big part of the diet. In order to be in ketosis and utilize ketones, your body needs to be starved of glucose, which results in the body burning fatty acids that produce ketones; an alternative source of energy to glucose. Ketosis is a state that you have to achieve, paleo is about avoiding certain food groups. So a paleo diet is a little more forgiving as having too much of one macro or another won’t kick you out of a metabolic state, unlike keto.

The Paleo diet removes foods that are hard for the body to break down and can wreak havoc on gut health — dairy products are one of them. Keto dieters often eat dairy products because they’re high in fats while also being low in carbohydrates.

Artificial Sweeteners/Food Quality:
The Paleo diet cuts out most processed food, especially ones with artificial sweeteners and additives – focuses strongly on choosing whole foods that are nutrient-dense, high-quality, and free from toxins. However, on the Keto diet the only requirements are that your food is low-carb/high fat. This means diet soda is technically Keto approved and so are other artificially sweetened low-carb junk foods – Although a healthy Keto diet should also include high quality food, it isn’t the emphasis. Summed as short as possible – No processed foods vs no carbs (5)

Paleo and CrossFit:
Carbs are staples for CrossFit and athletes, but they are somewhat restricted in the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet also eliminates grains and legumes (both key carb sources for athletes), as well as dairy, salt, and vegetable oils. Carbs that are allowed on the paleo diet (no grains, for example) are too low on the glycemic index to replace glycogen mid- and post-run as quickly as endurance athletes typically need. You’re not low enough on carbs to be producing ketones so you’re not using fat as a main source of energy, and not high enough on carbs to be receiving enough energy from them (6)

  1. I'm somewhat confused, I personally have a few friends who do paleo diet and none of them consume any grain products such as bread, pasta, rice, or potatoes. If I am mistaken, I think for the most part they eat meats, fruits, vegetables and dairy.

  2. Thanks a lot for the informative video. How useful is the paleo diet for endomorph body types? I thought endomorphs do not have to eat as much carbs as other body types. I would appreciate an answer. Thanks in advance 🙂

  3. Have done keto For 10 days and did IF, I feel awful, weak, sick and extremely depressed, taking me days to get over it. Followed all electrolytes minerals vitamins. Maybe I’m a freak but this feels so destructive to me. It all sounds good and healthy though. But we are all different.

  4. I can’t don’t like the stevia. I do prefer keto over paleo. Seems to work much better for my insulin response.

  5. Yeahh, I remember when Atkins was the Best Thing Ever too. And South Beach. And a dozen others.

  6. On the subject of crossfit athletes, they have a bigger mid section because of core strength. In crossfit you have to have that strength for the workouts we do. I agree with a lot of what you've said but when it comes to the athletes, we look that way for a reason…

  7. But you're wrong: paleo doesn't eat bread. They can eat apples or vegetables that have a lot of carbs. But they don't eat bread.

  8. If paleo allowed heavy cream and cheese, as well as monk fruit and erythritol, it would be ideal for me.☺

  9. But he is basically implying that the only paleo carbs are fruits, when most paleo people are really into sweet potatoes carrots and beets and plantains and emphasize not over- eating fruit

  10. I eat a low carb paleo diet, I eat fruits but only berries, as well as meat, fish, nuts and low carb vegetables. 5’11 160 pounds.

  11. The only thing I crave is coffee every day.
    I rarely eat meat only BC it messes with my stomach. I don’t eat carbs. I need to lose 30 lbs. Build muscle, and relieve pain. It’s confusing BC gagging meat products down every day makes me want to starve.
    Moderation in vegs, meats, avocados, fruits.
    No processed, bread, or sugars. Maybe I just go slow towards adding meats cooked in Butter.

  12. My only regret is not trying the Agoge diet earlier, very great results. Keto really ruined me for a couple of weeks before that.

  13. I tryed keto my body got dehydrated and my body needs fruits and sugar electrolytes.

  14. Why the fuck do you keep showing images of "carbs" as breads when Paleo followers DO NOT eat breads! It's the same old biased BS from you flogging your keto cash cow. Don't BS people! When you know little or nothing about nutrition, this guys seems like a god! But spend long enough educating yourself and you realize this guy talks just as much BS as everyone else.

  15. I totally disagree. I follow clean metabolically informed Keto. For me this means a food pyramid based on primarily organic veggies, moderate amounts of healthy plant based fat, NO sugar, NO dairy, no grain based products of ANY kind, NO processed food, NO fructose or added sugars, nothing from a can or a box, no chips no snack foods. ALL processed foods have added sugars and cause internal fat accumulation known as TOFI, I consume moderate amounts of organic poultry and fish. Too much fat or protein is converted to sugar and spikes insulin. The gherkin-leptin-insulin regulation is the key along with gut health.

  16. I like your videos BUT you should probably just talk about keto dude. Did anybody else see the kneading of dough while he talked about Paleo carbs??!!?
    I did strict Paleo for 6 months with my wife. I lost 76 lbs and she lost 41 pounds. This video makes it sound like only keto is good for losing weight. Before I started I had friends and family doing either keto or paleo. Many quit both since now but some of the paleo group made it a lifestyle change where they are modifying it once they get to their ideal weight to include a (few) extra things. My wife and I eat grass fed beef/ bison plus pasture raised chicken and eggs. We cut down on pork and eat fish or seafood twice a week. No sausage. Occasionally bacon.
    Lots of fresh veggies. I miss my pizza but I had it once in the last 6 months when meeting family at a restaurant. As long as you cheat sparingly and be scared every time you do it (like playing with fire).
    Clean keto…..most of the time my mom was pigging out on bacon,butter, corn fed beef with a sprig of veggies.
    I weighed 407 lbs. started keto when I got down to 274. 6 months later I’m at 298. You can lose weight on keto too. My mom did. She currently is off of keto and piling the weight back on. Just saying weight loss happens with both

  17. I have tried both of these diets and far and away Paleo has won every time. I was only ever able to sustain Keto for a month each time – and would always result in absurd carb and sugar cravings, horrible binges. Never ever again. I also found it nearly impossible to gain strength on Keto, the loss of body mass was just debilitating. Paleo I was able to sustain for years and years.

  18. I was thinking the opposite. I love both diets without the dairy. However I thought that if you are very active, then you can do paleo over keto as you will be able to “burn” or utilize the carbs better. I have been told that to have muscles it is important to load carbs as well ( complex carbs) so it is very confusing to understand if you can still grow muscles with keto

  19. I definitely don't agree with this, I consider how I eat to be paleo and just by the nature of what I'm eating itslow carb and I'm in ketosis. I don't eat any bread or potatoes. I just eat meat, eggs and vegetables.
