Even if you're not on a strict Paleo plan, going Paleo (low in carbs, high in protein) at dinner can be a great technique to help you shed weight. Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson recommends that his clients skip carbs later in the day, since foods like rice, grains, and pastas make your body retain water, "which blurs, to a certain degree, definition and muscle separation."
When you eat carbs in the morning, you have plenty of time to burn them off with exercise, but if you're working out later in the evening, you still need a substantial dinner. Look to these nine nutritious and delicious Paleo dinners for kitchen inspiration.
