My Cross Fit Trainer has this to say in answer to this question…“Many are so wedded to their current ways that they will disparage it because it is so threatening to the current prevailing ethos (“everything is okay in moderation,” “people just eat too damn much”, etc.). There is no caloric restriction built into the diet. None.”
“You eat until you are completely satisfied and snack at your own discretion and are pretty much never fiendishly hungry unless you miss a meal. We only regulate the content of your diet, not the quantity, because your body has an amazing hormonal system that takes care of the caloric details for us already (and has been doing so for millenia before anyone even knew what a “calorie” was). It’s the difference between burning fat for fuel (practically unlimited supply of energy, only small changes in energy levels) and burning sugar for fuel (very limited supply, large swings in energy levels (“sugar highs/crashes”). You will not need to murder anyone for a cookie because the new way you will experience “hunger” will not be so debilitating.”

He goes onto say…:
“I have never heard of or read about any case of a person who was not at least mildly successful when they followed it for any good length of time and, generally, the longer and more diligently people follow it, the more drastic and profoundly life-altering their experience.”
“Consider this: I was already pretty close to my own ideal weight and current fitness level when I started doing Paleo at the beginning of this year, and even so my own experience has been like achieving enlightenment, physically and mentally. You will feel better. You will perform better in class and in life. You will get sick less often.
You will find that “little thing” that’s been nagging you for months all of a sudden goes away. Your libido will all of a sudden increase ;). You will become happier because it’s like you’ve solved the riddle of the sphinx and can now focus your efforts on other productive aspects of your life. I kid you not. The experience is so multi-faceted that it’s almost futile to try to capture it in words, which is why this little 25 day exposure will be so amazing for everyone who gives it an honest try.
Also, get the book because that will answer a lot of the common questions and concerns.
