Kaleigh AKA, The Paleo Angel, is a girl from Boston who lost a bunch of weight following the Paleo diet and she shares her journey. She also felt better than ever following the Paleo approach to eating. Here’s a video that gives a great overview of the Paleo way of eating.

My comments: I don’t like fasting daily like Kaleigh did. She used the “Lean Gains” style of intermittent fasting which works well for some people. I prefer the “Eat Stop Eat” style, which means just 1-2 times per week.

The main thing is to NOT use intermittent fasting if it makes you feel terrible. You can get as lean as you want following several eating methodologies.
