The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet by Robb Wolf
The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet

MOCK, March 27, 2012

Everyone has a diet book these days. High this, low that, balance this with that, etc. THIS way of eating makes sense for several reasons:

1. In evolutionary terms, our genes are nearly identical with those early humans that were living in caves and subsisting on the food they could kill or gather from the local flora.
2. The science of digestion/food absorption says that grains and legumes are particularly equipped to cause us problems.
3. Simple carbohydrates are the cause of insulin spikes that are the cause of nearly all fat/weight issues.

Wolf is a bit snarky in his writing, but this made me want to read more. The narrative did not get boring, except for a couple of places where the science went a bit over my head.

I have been on his prescribed plan for two weeks now, lost quite a few pounds, and feel better than I have for about 25 years. If you need to find a lifestyle of eating that is not only easy, but very natural and not such a far cry from what we eat anyway, just with elimination of certain foods and all processed foods, then this is definitely worth a read.
