A Paleo-style diet can be a great way to lose fat and get healthy. Don't restrict calories, restrict carbs. Eat simple but whole foods. Stick with basics like eating a protein such as beef or fish and whole-food carbs from green, leafy vegetables and fruit. Include walking, light jogging, light weight lifting. Partner with someone to keep you on track and achieve your goals.
