I'm afraid that it largely depends on your initial diet.

Agreed. Paleo is vastly superior to SAD (standard American diet), but it's an open scientific question whether paleo is better than other common diets. (I'm paleo.)

If you do low carbohydrate paleo there can be a difficult transition period (see Atkins Flu).

it's an open scientific question whether paleo is better than other common diets.

Is this because there's no reason to think that it should be better or because there are contrasting data?
