Publisher Comments:

Do you want to lose fat and stay young, all while avoiding cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and a host of other illnesses? andlt;iandgt;The Paleo Solutionandlt;/iandgt; incorporates the latest, cutting edge research from genetics, biochemistry and anthropology to help you look, feel and perform your best. Written by Robb Wolf, a research biochemist who traded in his lab coat and pocket protector for a whistle and a stopwatch to become one of the most sought after strength and conditioning coaches in the world. With Robb's unique perspective as both scientist and coach you will learn how simple nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes can radically change your appearance and health for the better.

Review:

"Asserting that 'modern life causes diabetes, autoimmunity, cancer, neurodegeneration, and infertility,' the first-time author Wolf, a former student of The Paleo Diet's Lauren Cordain, takes on grains, carbs, vegetarians, misinformation, and other aspects of modern life with a casual, conversational tone ('Keep your poop where it belongs') that makes even topics like the components of total cholesterol engaging. Wolf's scientific background allows him to fully explain hormones, fats, and the digestive process, and helps him put the fundamentals of evolutionary biology into accessible context. He argues that, in addition to dietary changes, a focus on the quality and duration of sleep and a fitness routine is needed, and photographs accompanied by detailed instructions guide readers through simple exercises. Recognizing the time crunch of modern life, Wolf's program is created to require minimum time and expense. While a grain-free, dairy-free diet may sound difficult to implement, he suggests a commitment-light 30-day trial and provides a four-week menu with simple recipes like Slow Cooker Pork Loin, Chicken Alfredo, and Pizza with a nut-based crust. An extensive list of references, primarily from peer-reviewed journals, lends credence to an intriguing argument.

Very interesting read. Wolf really tries to build a bigger picutre of what a modern paleo diet should lok like while giving you enouh detail and science about why our modern grain-dairy heavy diet is harmful. This wws recommemded to me because of a recent autoimmune diagnosis, so I am going to give Wolf the 30 days he asks for, eating his way. For me, trying is the only way to see if his diet suggestions will make me more healthy. I recommend reading with a healthy level of skeptocism...but also an open mind about how our bodies respond to the foods we feed upon.

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.
