Re: Which diet is more effective in given cases, Paleolithic diet or Zone diet?

Apples to oranges...Paleo is about quality, Zone is about quantity. Anything focusing on the quality of food or health in the above list will lean towards Paleo as you can eat anything on the Zone, so long as it's proportioned. Anything focusing on cheap or easy will lean towards Zone, as you can eat anything so long as it's proportioned.

Paleo is probably easier not to cheat on though as you don't have to worry about balancing fat, protein, and carbs. If it's not Paleo, you just don't eat it.

Personal favorite is Paleo. I do better on a lower carb intake and find that excluding grains, dairy, and legumes does me a world of good.
