(This will be a work in progress for a little while....)

This guide is meant to be a general overview of grain free, low grain, and low carb diets, and isn't meant to be exhaustive. Because we cannot post links, you will have to do research on these yourself, but it might help you to get an idea of what options are out there.

Low Carb
Low carb diets generally focus on meats, fats, and vegetables, and limit carbs to under 50g per day. Proponents say it has rapid weight loss, but can be difficult to maintain over a long period.

Paleo
The paleo diet is based on what cavemen and tribal cultures might eat. It focuses on whole, natural foods with heavy emphasis on meats, fats, vegetables, and nuts, with some fruits and tubers like potatoes. The amount of carbs are kept relatively low, but proponents vary on amounts.

Primal
Primal is an offshoot of paleo that has much of the same requirements except dark chocolate and natural sugars like honey and maple syrup are acceptable. Some proponents also eat white rice on occasion.

Gluten Free
Gluten free diets exclude gluten, which is a binding agent found mostly in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye, malts and triticale. Usually this is because a gluten intolerance has been found medically or is suspected.
