Book Description

2.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent 4 May 2015
The claim that we are seasonal creatures appears incontestable, but almost all the claims made in this book can be challenged. If permanent "summer" is unhealthy, then simulating "winter" EVERY day must be equally bad, since it is not seasonal either.
Exposure to cold is known to be healthful, but lengthy immersion in a cold bath could be dangerous - the author says to stop if you notice yourself becoming confused or giddy. But the problem is that a confused person doesn't necessarily know they are confused. Giddiness might lead to falls. Getting into a cold bath can induce cold shock that can affect the heart; cold showers or contrast showers, hot then cold, might be safer.
Although the Paleo diet would have been seasonal, ethnographic studies show hunter-gatherers do/did eat fruits and starchy tubers and even pure sugar, in the form of honey, when available. Generally, wild animals carry very little fat and hunter-gatherers might eat olives and other oil-bearing food, such as nuts. They would probably not have processed olive oil. Thus, the recommended levels of fat in this book are possibly too high for a real Paleo/Hunter-Gatherer diet.

As a general observation, this book doesn't provide any sources, references or citations. It ignores the reality that there are many healthy diets around the world, among seasonal and non-seasonal populations. Some populations survived and thrived on diets that were "unhealthy" by modern standards, especially from a Paleo point of view. The interaction of diet, lifestyle and environment is more complex than stated here.

5.0 out of 5 stars short but very importantand useful information 13 July 2013

This book encourages humans to start living in accordance with the cycles of nature, but it does so in a very specific and compelling manner. The author obviously values brevity and lays out his three-part program in a succinct manner, to enable us to mimic the "winter" cycle on our own. His suggestions require no meaningful monetary investment, but are scientifically based and surprisingly easy to accomplish. These are serious suggestions for improving one's health. read it.....

Very disappointed, many interesting pieces of information mentioned superficially and that is all. No references sited and no in depth explanations. If you want a prescription with no "why" you may like this book.

Very short but very informative. People seem to forget humans are animals, and that we too have cycles that we must naturally follow. This book touches on one of those and how to achieve it.

The premise is intriguing, but could be a little more fleshed-out. It would be nice to believe that becoming cold adapted automatically equates good health. A good book, perhaps, for us Nordic types but in need of supporting evidence for others.
