Paleo isn't the same thing, while it IS low carb (no grains) you can still eat as much fruit as you want. Paleo was brought upon by the theory that cavemen ate healthier than we do.

Most people I know use it as a method of increasing their general health.

The fruits in Paleo are high in simple carbohydrates (sugars) which could account for the increase in insulin and therefore storage of fat with excess calories.

While you were still avoiding grains, you were still incorporating fast absorption carbs high GI carbs.

I'm talking about low carb diets that take you into the state of ketosis.

I'm not sure what guidelines you followed with Paleo, but I've eaten quite a few calories with keto and have still managed to drop some weight - 13lbs as of today.

I do admit I haven't counted calories other than protein intake, but I posted the diet I have been following a few days ago.
