Loren Cordain, Ph.D., follows his success of The Paleo Diet with the first book ever to detail the exercise-enhancing effects of a diet similar to that of our Stone Age ancestors.
When The Paleo Diet was published, advocating a return to the diet of our ancestors (high protein, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables), the book received brilliant reviews from the medical and nutritional communities. Jennie Brand-Miller, coauthor of the bestselling Glucose Revolution, called it "without a doubt the most nutritious diet on the planet." Doctors Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of Protein Power, said, "We can't recommend The Paleo Diet highly enough."
Now Dr. Cordain joins with USA triathlon and cycling elite coach Joe Friel to adapt the Paleo Diet to the needs of athletes. The authors show:
o Why the typical athletic diet (top-heavy with grains, starches, and refined sugars) is detrimental to recovery, performance, and health
o How the glycemic load and acid-base balance impact performance
o Why consumption of starches and simple sugars is only beneficial in the immediate post-exercise period
At every level of competition, The Paleo Diet for Athletes can maximize performance in a range of endurance sports.
A breakthrough nutrition strategy for optimum athletic performance, weight loss and peak health based on the Stone Age diet humans were designed to eat.

Paleo-style diets are all the rage as fitness enthusiasts, including the booming nation of CrossFitters, have adopted high protein, low-processed-food diets to fuel their exercise. It all began with the publication of the book The Paleo Diet by renowned scientist Loren Cordain, Ph.D., who presented a breakthrough plan for weight loss and disease prevention without dieting or exercising. In 2005, Dr. Cordain joined with endurance coach Joe Friel to write The Paleo Diet for Athletes.

Now, the authors offer an updated and revised edition of The Paleo Diet for Athletes specifically targeting runners, triathletes, and other serious amateur athletes. Cordain and Friel show that by using the foods our bodies were designed to eat—protein, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and even some saturated fats--anyone can achieve total-body fitness and dramatically improve the strength and cardiovascular efficiency. The Paleo Diet for Athletes gives specific guidelines for what to eat before, during and after a workout or competition along with simple, tasty recipes packed with power and wholesome ingredients.

the paleo diet

I run alot, I run 1/2 marathons, and full marathons, this book gives you a diet. A diet that is almost next to impossible to follow. I am not a fan of diets, but I do eat healthy. Unless you are willing to eat next to nothing, I would not recommend this book. If you are able to follow this diet for a month, I would be impressed.
