Ok but not the best on the subject,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Primal Blueprint: Reprogram Your Genes for Effortless Weight Loss, Vibrant Health & Boundless Energy (Primal Blueprint Series) (Hardcover)
I have recently begun a 'primal' style adaption of my diet, eating lots of protein but no carbs other than what are found in veggies etc. I had recently read a great book by Dr John Briffa called "Escape the diet trap" and wanted to extend my research on the subject so I bought this book.
It is OK, but a bit boring and drawn out in places, whereas the "Escape the Diet Trap" is succinct (whilst very well researched) and does not have a fictional caveman to illustrate the points - it just relies upon the science.
Some of the suggestions are a bit patronising (get some sun, walk barefoot, take time to play) but the theory behind the book is, as I firmly believe from my years of dieting and researching diet, sound and probably the reason why we are all going wrong with our attempts to lose weight.

Haven't seen the sun for four days. Nor has anyone else in my locale. So not easy to get a daily ration of direct sunlight. I wonder if the Vitamin D and ultra-violet that gets through the cloud base is enough? Probably, but it's freezing out there, and treacherous underfoot. So, at 74 years of age, maybe I'll wait until the snow and ice are gone!

I'm guessing the barefoot chapter will get 'skipped' as well then? :)
In all honesty it's good to see someone of your age so deeply interested in health thro' nutrition - good luck and the Suns coming very, very soon.

Thank you Mr. Hobbs. Strangely enough, as a child, I was always getting 'ticked off', for running around barefoot. But you are right, I cant see me dispensing with shoes these days! The interest in nutrition isn't solely for it's own sake. I was 20 stones. Morbidly obese. This was interfering with the quality of my life. Despite numerous diets formulated with 'conventional wisdom', I couldn't make progress. So I did my own research. My only regret is I didn't find the truth years ago. I have dropped almost three stones now, and already things are much improved. Thanks again.
