  1. An interesting read with some well reasoned and supported arguments as well as some alarmist and perhaps not quite as well reasoned arguments I ve been eating and Paleo since I feel much better when I do Since I have Celiac disease, avoiding grains seems like a good solution for me I m not convinced that Paleo is the last word in nutrition and I wasn t convinced that a vegetarian diet is the devil I still think nutrition science is complicated and difficult to pin down There s a whole chapter [...]


  2. Lots of good information and scads of references in the back of the book, but the main text sometimes comes off as sounding rather alarmist, in the sense that he makes claims for instance, that eating raw kidney beans has been fatal in some cases and sort of vaguely references the instance or study that supports the statement In those cases particularly in the beans can be lethal sections it would have been helpful to see pointed references, just because the claims are so far beyond our normal [...]


  3. Some kindle notes Theodosius Dobzhansky, a well known Russian evolutionary biologist, said, Nothing in biology makes sense, except under the light of evolution location 250In The Paleo Diet, I spoke of the 85 15 rule meaning that if you are 85 percent compliant with the diet most of the time, significant improvements in your health can occur The other 15 percent normally, three meals a week are open meals, meaning you can choose to eat a normal amount of foods that fall outside the diet plan loc [...]



  4. This book is loaded with good information but unless you love reading about science and studies on a nearly academic level, be prepared to nod off a few times I tried, I really tried to grasp everything he was saying in those sections, but failed It s just a lot to take in I did take away a lot of good tips that are going to help me eat better though I agree with other reviewers who said that Cordain came off as a bit alarmist in sections ie undercooked beans will kill you Um yeah I also didn t [...]


  5. This book is an overdue update to Dr Cordain s classic previous work The Paleo Diet which greatly accelerated the concept of applying the sciences of evolutionary biology and anthropology to contemporary nutrition.In short, Dr Cordain provides a scientific guiding principle that humans ate, exercised and slept in specific patterns for well over a million years Then, a comparatively recently 10,000 years ago, the agricultural revolution dramatically altered these patterns These patterns have been [...]


  6. A masterwork, a lifetime of study and research condensed down into one book Loren Cordain views human diets through the lens of evolution to point to foods that may induce health issues and then presents a wide variety of studies showing what the detailed issues are He recommends and backs up with studies avoiding grains and legumes both contain a wide variety of anti nutrients intended to keep animals from eating them , milk filtered cow s blood intended for calves, containing all sorts of horm [...]


  7. Since dealing with breast cancer a couple of years ago, we have changed our eating habits and generally eat pretty clean cooking real food, limiting processed foods and avoiding gluten because it raises the inflammation markers in my bloodwork As part of a summer meltdown program with my bootcamp, they are doing a paleo diet for a couple of weeks along with several other things It s pretty easy to get the general concept of paleo lean meats, fresh veggies fruits, nuts and seeds not so easy in pr [...]


  8. I d been picking up so many nutrition and diet books about paleo eating that I thought should read up on it by one of its founders It all started with my viewing on Netflix the documentary, The Perfect Human Diet after watching my father suffer and die from heart disease which I totally attributed to his lapse into a Western diet gone turbo However, it ain t easy to eliminate grains and dairy and legumes, even after I had already decided to try to drastically eliminate highly processed foods fro [...]


  9. Not a light easy read by any stretch of the imagination, but I appreciate Cordain s work to ground the reasons one might choose paleo in science Knowing full well, of course, that results can be interpreted in many ways Part One The Paleo Way and Part Three Maximum Paleo Living were the most helpful discussing saturated fat, how to approach paleo I like the 85 15 rule follow it 85% of the time and use the other 15% approx 3 meals per week as you like , and a sample menu for a week s worth of mea [...]


  10. I was looking for a book that explained the original details of the Paleo diet So many of them have simply made up their own diet incorporating what we eat today into Paleo which is pretty much against why you should follow a Paleo diet.This book is written by Paleo s founder who compiled all of the studies showing why a hunter gatherer diet is a better option than our current diet This book elaborates on it and got into specifics of autoimmune diseases and cancer tweaks to the diet.A true and r [...]


  11. I d give this 4 stars for content, 3 stars for readability There s a lot of info in this book But this vegetarian of 5 years has turned to meat eating again and is feeling good, with no hint of the chronic inflammation I ve had in the past And a bonus is that other medical issues have seemingly resolved themselves issues I did not think were related to vegetarianism based on my iron levels during blood work Needless to say, I think Dr Cordain s spot on when saying that hematocrit is a poor indic [...]


  12. From what we know about historically studied foragers, they hunted, gathered, and fished for foods in a manner that maximized their caloric intake verses the energy they expended to obtain these foods This food gathering strategy is referred to as the optimal foraging theory by anthropologists Based on the optimal foraging theory, hunter gatherers typically maintained the following order of food preferences 1 Large animals2 Medium sized animals3 Small animals, birds, and fish4 Roots and tubers5 [...]


  13. I really enjoyed learning about the paleo take on ideal human nutrition I must say, this book has converted me to believing that a paleo diet is the best choice for health I no longer see legumes or grains as necessary for nutrition unfortunately, I have not been able to entirely cut them out of my diet The paleo diet makes a lot of inherent sense, but the best part of this book is all the science that Cordain brings to the subject He cites numerous studies in defense of his viewpoint Where stud [...]


  14. Unlike other diet based books which tell you to eat a certain way because it will help you lose weight, Dr Cordain explains the science behind everything and why eating a diet that includes dairy, grains, and legumes leads to many of the current diseases, inflammations, and autoimmune disorders occurring in our culture right now He debunks the marketing exploits used to promote dairy, grains, and supplements while also providing an alternative eating regimen that is suitable to how the human bod [...]


  15. An incredibly depressing book tells you that pretty much everything that you put in your mouth is highly toxic and lethal except for fish and meat that the author so conveniently forgets to mention also contains toxins So, I closed the last page feeling very very down went out and bought a huge block of hazelnut chocolate and had a piece with a great sense of enjoyment from being alive despite the high content of toxins contained in that piece of chocolate that even kills a dog


  16. This book really got me thinking about the things we eat and how so many people just eat whatever without even thinking about what it could be doing to them It is a very informative book If you re someone who just wants to eat paleo because you were told it s good and know by others experiences that it works, but you don t care WHY things are bad for you, then I wouldn t bother reading this If you are a very curious person and love to learn why things are the way they are, this book is for you. [...]


  17. I really didn t get much out of this book From the first few chapters I have a better understanding of the problems with vegetarianism, dairy, and legumes but besides that it goes into a level of detail about the effects of non paleo foods that s just too deep If you re looking for reasons why you shouldn t eat stuff, this book references tons of studies If you already know what the paleo diet is, this book won t give you much new information.


  18. I haven t read this book from cover to cover However, I m impressed by what I have read I ve been following the Paleo program for a couple of weeks now, and have experienced weight loss as well as relief from stomach distress Dr Cordain, the founder of this movement, backs up his information with impressive scientific research Definitely a good resource if you re thinking of trying this program for either weight loss or better health and well being.


  19. If you want to improve your health, this book is a must.It s flawlessly researched and well written.However a warning must be made This book WILL scare the crap out of you The author claims everything you eat and do will kill you mercyless So you must use your wisdom and smarts to skim through the fear.


  20. Dr Cordain explains the Paleo diet further in this book, and describes an option for those with an autoimmune disease such as multiple sclerosis I am forever grateful for his discoveries and appreciate the many graphs and scientific research in this book even though all people can benefit from this information.


  21. It hard to get through In fact, I DIDN T get through it, I skimmed through it A totally unnecessary read in my opinion A positive He talked about children and different stages of your lifeat was good.I liked how he recommended a higher intake of fruits for kids that makes sense.Nothing really that new


  22. I ve been reading alot about Paleo lately but haven t been able to take the leap and give it a try This book is pushing me further in the direction of at least trying I like that there is an 85 15 rule paleo 85% of the time, other foods 15% That alone makes if feel approachable I don t like that the 7 day meal plan relies on recipes in ANOTHER book, though.


  23. Probably not a good intro to paleo book, but there was some good info even if there were some uncomfortable parts when he was tearing down vegetarianism and the dairy industry The chapter on water was a new one for me.s you even stuff to think about The book appeared to be a long one, but an amazing 40% of it was references and index.


  24. Loren Cordain certainly knows his stuff and gives many compelling reasons to try the Paleo Diet I do find his writing style a touch heavy and felt a little lectured to at points probably because I don t want to give up ice cream LOL Very well researched though, and a LOT of excellent information


  25. Some good science and some studies he didn t go into enough detail but partly because there is a lot left to research I know my body feels best when I eat the way Cordain recommends and this book does a great job of explaining why that is It is also a great read to review some basic nutritional knowledge like the role of omega 3s, certain minerals, saturated fats and their myths etc.

  27. I get a lot of info from this book But, I am getting confuse with writer statement about the worse of dringking milk If milk is too bad, why rhe quran say that it is a good drink I am a moslem and really believe in quran So this statement make me confuse And I should read another writing to make it clear Any suggestion


  28. Meta analyses of thousands of studies that show why grains, legumes, and dairy are destroying our health Finally, a scientific explanation of why I m intolerant to these things and feel so much better when I don t eat them.


  29. Takeaway info wheat, corn, dairy, and regular potatoes are killing us, and the people that don t have them aren t dying of the same things as us He says over and over that he can t imagine why the USDA can t figure this out My bet is money.
