True or False? The Paleo diet is the best way for active people to eat. False. This popular high-protein, lowcarb plan is the most Googled diet in recent years.

Their study findings showed that those who follow diets high in animal protein have a 90 percent greater risk of gaining more than 10 percent of their bodyweight over time than those who don’t go heavy on the meat.
