De Vany is a retired economics professor who devised the system of privatising radiofrequencies, and wrote the definitive book on the economics of the movie industry. He developed his interest in metabolism after his son developed type I diabetes, and experimented with diet to optimise blood sugars. The diet he arrived at was strikingly similar to a hunter-gatherer diet, rich in meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts, but eliminating liquid calories, grains, legumes, dairy and processed foods. Before going into economics he had been a baseball player and has a long time interest in weight lifting. These strands came together in his website, which became a focus for people interested in the "paleo" movement - looking at the lifestyle we evolved to have as a necessary condition for optimal health. Art developed his programme of evolutionary fitness, where brief, intense, sporadic exercise takes the place of cardio, jogging etc.Read more ›
Gone are all the slumps before and after noon where the sugar rush from the breakfast or lunch has worn off, leaving you sleepy. My energy levels are now much more constant, enabling me to keep going through the whole day without slowdowns.
The food you will eat will taste better - and the variety of it has increased as well after incorporating the diet into my life. Green salads with meat, fish, vegetables and fruit in colorful tones - none of the grey or brown only left in my menu.
Giving up all the sugar and non-food items (cakes, biscuits, ice-cream, sodas) and grains (breads, beans, pasta, cereals) is not only good for you and your health, it is easier than you think. After the first week your body no longer craves for them and it becomes less of a strain of willpower to keep avoiding the sugary foods you are bombarded with everywhere.
And you do not need to avoid these foods at all costs - once you think about it, the only exciting thing for your brain about these foods is the taste - there is no need to eat the whole cake at one go to enjoy it. Two bites of it will satisfy your brain and leave you with a good memory of having tasted something good without ruining your blood sugar levels and your waistline.
Also, please do follow the training guidelines given by De Vany. There is no excessive need to train hours upon end. 2 to 3 training sessions 20 - 30 minutes each per week, with high intensity levels are enough.Read more ›
then (usually) some event will turn up where I relent and eat some carbs ! This means I'm maintaining
my weight rather than losing it. However it's easily the best diet to follow - no counting, starving, special drinks or tablets etc.
The diet is simple (no carbs, no processed meat, H.I.I.T. exercise). If you want to know a bit more about the man and his qualifications and past history then get the book. For diet advice just read his blog.

Bought this book after reading lots of positive feedback. Can't understand why. If you have lots of time for the fussy planning and meals then go for it. Read morePublished on 5 Dec. 2012 by A A Lawrence
The book is OK but effectively it's like most diet books in that a whole book could be condensed into far less words. Read morePublished on 1 Oct. 2012 by fluffyclouds
