Product Description

Review

I am a firm believer in The Paleo Solution. I maintain a hectic schedule that starts early and finishes late. Filming a television series, maintaining my fitness, and being a mom can be harrowing some days. Since adopting a Paleo way of eating I look and feel better, and I know that I am setting a good example for my daughter. --Eva La Rue, star of 'CSI: Miami'

On January 24, 2012, TODAY.com included THE PALEO SOLUTION by Robb Wolf as one of its top five health books for the new year. --TODAY.com

A friend of my son introduced me to this book about six months ago, as he was someone who treats his body like a temple, I thought, as he raved over it, it would be worth a read, he loaned me his copy and at about the second chapter I thought "I must get a copy of this myself". I had struggled with acid reflux, high blood pressure and high cholesterol for years, first trying a (very) low fat diet to counter the cholesterol with a dissapointing lack of result. The next attempt was with statins from the doctor, these lowered the cholesterol slightly and the blood pressure tablets dropped the blood pressure a little. About two years after this I tried the paleo diet, I lost about 10 kilos and felt fantastic, I was a little concerned that such a rich and pleasant diet couldn't be that good for my health but as I say I felt better than I had for years, I had a cholesterol test done about 2 months after starting the diet and my cholesterol level was down to a healthy level. All in all, I can only sum it up as a life changing book,it worked wonders for me and I would suggest you try it.

I have just finished reading this book and I must say its great. I had been following the Paleo lifestyle via Mark Sissons Primal Blueprint(Also excellent Primal Blueprint: Reprogram Your Genes for Effortless Weight Loss, Vibrant Health & Boundless Energy (Primal Blueprint Series) This book covers the same general ideas as Primal living with only a few differences. The first half is quite science heavy but Robb Wolf has a great way of making it understandable. I would reccomend this book for anyone who hasn't gone Paleo yet and also for anyone already doing it who wants some more science based facts as to why it works and what is actually happening in your body.

Oh and for anyone wondering whether it works? Well I,ve lost 80lbs in 4 months without ever feeling hungry and energy is through the roof so you can make your own conclusions on where I stand about its effectiveness!

This book could be entitled "The Paleo Lifestyle". If you were expecting just another low carb diet/recipe book, this isn't it. If you want a list of rules with rigid guidelines that you can never deviate from, this isn't for you.

So where does it fit and what can you expect?

Do you have any questions about how a modern framework based on a Paleolithic lifestyle will help you lose weight, slow the ageing process and improve performance? Then this is it.

If you suffer or are likely to suffer from auto-immune diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns, Rheumatoid arthritis, etc - this will provide answers on managing these conditions.

If you're wondering what types of exercises/activities will help you achieve the above goals, and why less is sometimes more, then this will provide answers.

Concerned about avoiding cancer, diabetes, heart disease and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc? This is for you.

Many of us we need a lifestyle review. Not only in terms of restful sleep and reducing stress levels, but with making the right 'real food' choices and performing activities that are aligned to these goals. Sounds easy, but sometimes we need guidance and the author has lots of experience in this field. Some of us want scientific evidence and there is copious amounts of this in the book. Some of us want to try the Paleo Solution based upon the experience of others and you can find these in the many testimonials available related to Robb's work.

This book discusses some of the reasoning behind the conflicting advice to be found in the world of nutrition. With some of the author's advice flying in the face of conventional wisdom.

The book actually claims it may save your life which may sound like a bold - possibly outlandish and ridiculous - statement to make, until you learn that it's very likely going to save mine. To understand this, I need to give you a quick background as to why I came to read it...

In 2010 I began a journey that would lead me on a search to find answers to why my mental health was deteriorating and I was experiencing symptoms consistent with Attention Deficit Disorder and Asperger's Syndrome at the high end of the autistic spectrum. The symptoms, which probably crossed over between the two, included disrupted executive functions; inability to concentrate and focus attention, poor working memory, an intense dislike and inability to function in a social setting (making conversation, reading body language, etc), and an inability to prioritise tasks. I was now dangerous when driving because my mind would wander instead of concentrating on the road and traffic ahead, and university study was a constant battle because I was in an almost permanent state of 'brain fog' which I can only describe as akin to trying to look at the world clearly after drinking a bit too much alcohol.

My journey took me to see numerous health professionals (in the UK that meant the NHS) whose opinions would range from not having a clue what was wrong, that there was nothing wrong with me, or simply patronizing me with arrogant and ignorant attitudes, devoid of any constructive plans of action. Suffice to say, I wasn't going to find any answers to my problems here. Nevertheless, the diagnostic findings resulting from these hospital appointments were informative.
