If you are into health and nutrition, you’ll love this book. Author Nora T. Gedgaudas includes extensive modern scientific research studies to back up her suggestions. Primal Body, Primal Mind is very in-depth and informative, but don’t let this fool you. The facts are presented in a straight forward way that any average Joe can read and understand. The basic principle behind the book is that to enjoy a longer, healthier life, we need to go back to the caveman way of eating. Gedgaudas suggests that decreasing or eliminating sugar, starches and grains in the diet as well as enjoying moderate protein and good, healthy fats can lead to good health, and “we can enjoy a level of health and vitality one might never have believed possible.” This is one of the best health information books I have read in a long time.

As a healthcare practitioner, this book has been invaluable as an aid to helping myself and my patients make positive nutritional changes. In it, she cites an impressive amount of strong scientific research supporting her conclusions and suggestions. Primal Body, Primal Mind is very dense and therefore is not ideal for a "light read" but it is chock full of paradigm-shifting information for those who are hungry for it, as I was. This book may help you and your loved ones live longer, healthier, happier lives. I highly recommend it.

If you want to lose weight and feel better overall then read this book! I learned so much about how nature intended our systems to work. Start the New Year off right and feed your body what it was meant to eat.

• Provides sustainable diet strategies to curb sugar cravings, promote fat burning and weight loss, reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep and moods, increase energy and immunity, and enhance memory and brain function

Examining the healthy lives of our pre-agricultural Paleolithic ancestors and the marked decline in stature, bone density, and dental health and the increase in birth defects, malnutrition, and disease following the implementation of the agricultural lifestyle, Nora Gedgaudas shows how our modern grain- and carbohydrate-heavy low-fat diets are a far cry from the high-fat, moderate-protein hunter-gatherer diets we are genetically programmed for, leading not only to lifelong weight gain but also to cravings, mood disorders, cognitive problems, and “diseases of civilization”--such as cancer, osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome (insulin resistance), heart disease, and mental illness.

Applying modern discoveries to the basic hunter-gatherer diet, she culls from vast research in evolutionary physiology, biochemistry, metabolism, nutrition, and chronic and degenerative disease to unveil a holistic lifestyle for true mind-body health and longevity.
