I tried this diet as well. Admittedly I only did it strictly for three months, but I started noticing results in about 2 weeks. I found I could eat a natural quantity of food (i.e. rather than counting and tracking calories, I just ate as much as I wanted = not gorging, but eating until I was full) and I did not gain any weight, I actually lost weight. In fact, I was absolutely eating more "calories" than before, but my body was clearly either burning them or expelling them b/c I was losing weight -- about a pound a week. I don't keep the diet strictly now, but I have cut our virtually all carbs and that has made a big difference.

I did Crossfit for about a month and the intense Crossfitters often follow the Paleo diet. Although I already have a very healthy diet, I wanted to see if the Paleo diet helped me build muscle and lose fat when doing Crossfit. I don't think the diet helped me achieve those things- instead it actually gave me the tendency to binge eat. I have learned that in the past, when I have restricted my food intake or tried dieting, it often ends in a binge for me, because my body craves balance. But, on a Paleo diet, it's not very balanced since you don't allow yourself to eat certain foods such as starchy carbs or legumes.

When I spoke to others who follow it though, they said that it helps if you ease your way into the diet, which I did not do. They also said that it gets easier the longer you follow it and the cravings tend to lessen.
