Anyone ever tried it for a while and if so what do you think of it? I'm on a semi-paleo diet right now, but can't completely cut out Coke so I try to limit my intake to one Coke a day and maybe one or two Diet Cokes. Does the Paleo diet work if you deviate from it that much? I can't drink only water all day long, day after day. I've always counted calories when dieting and am dubious that you can eat as much as you want on the Paleo diet and still lose weight. I just can't see eating 2,500 to 3,000 calories a day or more and still losing weight, at least not with my metabolism.
