Having read two articles in The Times about this book I decided to order it and give it a go.

The eating plan is easy to follow, doesn't create hunger pangs or cravings and really is quite straightforward. I'm 5 days in to the eating plan now and have lost 5 pounds in weight. Hopefully, it's fat rather than lean body mass. The author provides a really good structure which the reader can use to nourish themselves in terms of food intake and also challenges many approaches to exercise and fitness. Reading these points are like a breath of fresh air - and the approach seems to be working, for me at least!

Why not a 5 star rating if the book is so good? For me there is just too much 'padding' to fill out the book. It's still readable but it seems to babble on for too long on subjects that just aren't directly related to the diet/exercise regime and how to do them properly. Still worth every penny in terms of value (reflected in my weight loss).

As an afficiondo of Art's blog for more than 2 years, I am already a beneficiary of the New Evolution Diet in terms of weight loss, general fitness and health levels. After eating and excercising this way, it's hard to see a good reason to ever return to old habits which essentially lead to premature aging and disease. As far as the book is concerned, despite the fact that I am fully aware of the lifestyle Art advocates, I still learned a lot a new things that perhaps are harder to find on the blog. The key point of the book is not that Art is an advocate of the Paleo lifestyle - although of course he is - but that that he found the key concepts and benefits of the diet and lifestyle independently to scientific theory, through his own experimentation, making his views much more valid. I think it's key that Art also tries to improve on the Paleo diet in a number of ways - particularly through Glutathione supplementation for which he is a strong advocate and an approach to excersising taking in power law dynamics, and the way living systems actually behave.

Art's New Evolution Diet has been a revelation to me since I first discovered it after an article in the Sunday Times in August 2009. It has been life changing for me in so many ways. I cannot recommend this book, and Art's approach as documented on his blog, highly enough. As long as you put it's principles into practice, it could actually be the most important book you ever read.

I am not a dieter at all, but I do try to eat healthily and have always tried to keep fit, so I started this from being in a reasonable (but slowly degrading with age)type of shape.

I've followed this regime for several months now, its amazing the way
muscle grows and fat falls away from your body slightly noticeably after a week and
after a couple of months very noticeable.

Other beneficial effects are that I sleep better and I am definitely able to concentrate on difficult tasks for longer.

I eat as much as I like of the foods allowed this is not about restricting input, so I don't have to go hungry at all except a little on the occasional recommended fasts (miss one meal).
For exercise I use weights to workout very hard twice, sometimes three times a week for 30 mins max each time.

The book covers and explains everything in a very clear way, its an enjoyable read and clearer than the 'de vany' website, which I find has many gems but they are often hidden away.

If you are happy to eat this diet, no chips, no potatos, no sweet things, no pizzas or bread, with only occasional beers and wine, but plenty of good fresh produce and if you will put considerable physical effort into short blasts of hard exercise then I'm sure it will work for you too.

I recommend it.

Ignore the back and front cover blurb, this is a great and useful book and not the usual faddish diet nonsense that the unfortunate advertising makes it out to be. It is more of a way of life than a quick fix diet.

The author makes a persuasive case that the modern diet which we regard as normal is in evolutionary terms completely the opposite. Our genes have barely changed from the last 40,000 years. What has changed is the massive available of high carbohydrate foods. We are programmed to be "lazy overeaters" so we always want to eat these calorie dense foods when we encounter them.
Our problem used to be the difficulty in obtaining enough food but now our problem is that we have too much of them/
Hunter gatherers were actually healthy than modern man (allowing for childhood mortality and diseases etc), the average height was greatly reduced when we discovered farming, they were also much more muscular.

The essential principles of the "new evolutionary diet" are

1. Enjoy food and do not count calories. Eat a diet low in glucose and starch ( avoid grains, and sugary foods such as bread, pasta, rice and potatoes) that is similar to the diet that humans ate for hundreds of thousands of years.

2. Do not permanently starve yourself but do practice intermittent calorie restriction such as missing the occasional meal.

3. Exercise less but do so more intensely.

There is a lot more to do this book than that and he uses evidence based reasoning throughout and provides an extensive bibliography. In particular he writes a lot about diabetes, exercise and also about the theory behind the diet. I do think that some of his amazing fitness might be due to his genetics rather than just the diet.
