Keto vs. Paleo: What's the Difference?

Mar 06, 2019

You’ve likely heard it many times before: diets never work. At Konscious Keto we tend to agree on this to a point. 

While it’s true that most fad diets end in complete failure (ever tried the grapefruit diet?!), two popular eating plans continue to gain attention—the paleo and ketogenic diets—because they show results.
