Not paleo. Questionnable ingredients Peanuts are verboten in a paleo regime. Also, by coconut milk, do they mean coconut water. Coconut milk is for desserts. And almonds are paleo (in small quantities), almond milk not so much - not pure and one would be consuming too much of the equivalent in actual almonds in a serving. This app is only useful if one already knows how to eat paleo and wanted easy menu plannning and knows how to substitute ingredients.
Any diet that recommends having only 2 boiled eggs for dinner or a lettuce leaf and a fistful of almonds for breakfast would definitely make you lose weight if you didn't cave in and eat the legs off the chairs and a bag of Oreos to go with them. This may be a Paleo themed plan but it is in essence a severe calorie/food restricted approach that is set to fail.
False info Peanut butter is not Paleo, deli meats, and so much more about this drove me crazy as soon as I started reading it! Most of the meals are ridiculously small and you'd starve if you followed this. Also, vegetables are supposed to be prominent in each meal and they rarely are on this app. Also, have someone proofread, "neeeded", really? Very disappointed in this app.
Too many Pop up ads I have been thinking of starting the diet and thought this was a handy resource, esp when shopping. But i can never read a whole minute without having to deal with pop up ads. I would have to stop and X out the ads then it brings me back to the app but back at the very beginning part of the page, and not where I left off, EVERY SINGLE TIME!! It only happens with this app. The caption at the bottom of the ad states: "ads by Google". So irritating, so I am deleting it. I will find my info some other way.
I love this app. Been using it for 5weeks. Meals are great and easy to make. I started this plan to start living a healthier lifestyle as I have been having problems with my stomach. The weight loss was just a bonus. Yes the first 2 days for me was a bit of a detox. I followed the beginners plan and felt so much better after 5 days. The meals as small as they seem keep me going all day and I sometimes even skip my snack or supper because I am just to full. On the weight side I lost 4kg within 2weeks, 6kg after 3weeks and after 4 weeks I lost 7kg. I currently have lost 8kg. My staying weight was 101kg and am now on 93kg. Friends and family have also started the plan and are also boasting nice weight losses.
No customization It's apparently designed to make u lose 5.7kg a month based on ur profile, wich you have no control over. And its all in metric, so if ur not handy w conversions, u pretty much can't use it. It needs an options menu.
The Paleo diet can help you lose weight by eating how our primal ancestors did.
