Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2002-01-01)

Like Ray Audette's Neanderthin (St. Martin's, 1999), this is another "if you can't find it in the wild, don't eat it" diet that takes the germ of a useful idea and runs with it. According to Cordain (health and exercise science, Colorado State Univ.), Paleolithic humans were fit and lean because, as hunter-gatherers, they ate what was available: meats low in saturated fats, fresh fruits, and non starchy vegetables. Nor did they suffer from heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, the byproducts of our poor eating habits and lack of exercise.

Then again, the average Paleolithic life span was about 30 years, not long enough to develop most chronic illnesses. Still, the author asserts that by eliminating grains, dairy, refined sugars, and processed foods from our diets, we, too, can thrive as our ancestors did. Three levels of diet and six weeks of sample menus, with recipes, are included.

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good book to get started on the Paleo Diet I have been doing the diet for about 1 1/2 weeks. I have lost about 5 lbs. I really think it gives me the extra edge. I'm already fit, but it defines me more. I like being able to not limit my food, just eat the right things. 08/29/2013
