One of the symptoms of Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is a chronic feeling of hunger that can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity, according to the USA Prader-Willi Syndrome Association. The association reports that one in 12,000 to 15,000 people are estimated to have PWS, and it is the most common identified genetic cause of obesity.

Long-term consumption of high glycemic-load foods has been associated with increased risk of obesity. By emphasizing low glycemic-load foods, the Paleo Diet helps to optimize body weight. The correct balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat that the diet provides also improves blood-lipid profiles, helps you to feel fuller, and enables you to burn more calories.

  1. Perhaps PWS could be helped a by a paleo diet, by regulating glucose levels, it is certainly worth a shot. Especially if it helps them manage their weight, since they are driven to eat continuously. But the root of the syndrome is an abnormality of the 15th chromosome that renders them unable to feel full. The paleo diet may help, but nothing can fix that. Theyvare always going to feel hungry because their brain is unable to register feeling full.

  2. Thanks for writing about this Jennifer! Like you, I have a siilmar situation that I think may be helped out by cutting out the sugar and white flour. And looking back on my history, my acne did begin to surface during a period of time in college when I started eating less healthy. This could be an answer to my problem! thanks for writing about this issue!

    • Sugar, white flour, dairy, and vegetable oils should be the first to go if you are looking to treat your acne. Once these foods have been eliminated consider upping your omega-3 intake by either taking fish oil or eating fatty fish 2-3 times per week. Also, outside of diet, stress reduction is equally important for reducing inflammation and acne.
