Does anyone know the difference between these two books? They are listed seperately on most websites, but the Chris Kresser store only sells the paleo code (orange cover). Just bought the Personal Paleo Diet (green cover) and wondered if it was... (more)
Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf or Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint? Based on both content and ability to comprehend (meaning, not so science-y that it goes over my head and all intention of the info is lost). What's your choice?
They are both written with a lay audience in mind, you should be fine with either and they're both great authors. That's assuming you mean Robb Wolf*. I'm not aware of a Robb Bell who writes about paleo, if there is kindly point me in his... (more)
I love to nerd out on some good paleo reading, but I'm not sure where to go next. I would like something a little more in-depth, science-laden and preferably somewhat up to date. I've read the following: - Paleo Solution - Primal Body, Primal... (more)
Hmmm. You want something "a little more in-depth, science-laden and preferably somewhat up to date" ... sounds like the Jaminets' Perfect Health Diet would fit the bill quite nicely.
There's obviously a burgeoning literature on the Paleo/Primal movement, but in my experience most books (or more often, jankety PDFs and Kindle files) seem to combine some science with quirky personal tales, heavily invested opinions and more... (more)
Hi everyone! Does anyone have any recommendations for a good book about Paleo that targets weight loss? (I have over 100 lbs to lose.) I've read Mark Sisson's books and I'm thinking of trying his Primal Leap program but it's a bit pricey. If... (more)
Just a quick question. Nothing important.
So I'm looking for more books. Paleo/nutrition books. Like I always am. I loved Good Calories, Bad Calories by Taubes, I loved Robb's Paleo Solution, and I'm looking for more. Specifically though, I want to find some that go into the science... (more)
I'm on a SUPER tight budget, but I really want to get a Paleo book to gain some more detailed information. The three I've narrowed it down to are: The Paleo Solution The Primal Blueprint The Whole30 e-book Which of these (or any other book,... (more)
I'm a marathon a month girl....I have 3 more states to complete marathons in 50 states! I gained a ton of weight marathoning, eating too many carbs, no fat...Another runner told me about this diet because my feet hurt from too much weight...It is... (more)
Really, I just want to share that I requested that my library purchase Perfect Health Diet, and just received it this week...I'm excited to read it cover to cover, I already am a Jaminet fan via the web, and although I'm an avid collector of... (more)
My arguments for why it's will be bad. "The Paleo Answer: 7 Days to Lose Weight, Feel Great, Stay Young". He jacks the term Paleo 2.0 from KGH with little understanding of the origins*. Bacon is evil. "Potatoes should stay below ground" Flax Oil... (more)
Evening, My flatemate's girlfriend who now lives with us has over the last year become more and more vegetarian. My flatmate says that he is starting to feel the pressure, and is not particularly happy because he feels his single pork chop is... (more)
The Primal Blueprint "The perfect book for your vegetarian girlfriend or boyfriend." - Kurt Harris MD
Part of living a paleo lifestyle is the food but another big part of it is developing a balance in your life that helps you reduce stress, play more, and all around do more. Before paleo I was big into the self-help the world is your oyster if... (more)
I've read a number of Paleo books and they are great but I would like to learn the details of the societies that inspired the diets. I would like to become familiar with the evidence. What are some good books to read next? I saw references to... (more)
hi anyone know any good books or online articles about living on zc? i've been to the "zeroing in on health" forum and will start going through the "active low carb" forum. but i really want some books directly about zero carb (meat and fat... (more)
I read Robb Wolf's book several months ago and have been enveloping myself in internet paleo-ness since then. I'd like to dive into a new book, but I have limited time to devote to sitting still and reading. SO: Let's pretend you could read... (more)
I was wondering if anyone had read the book 'The Paleo Diet for Athletes'. I'm reading it now and loving it. I went paleo a few weeks back and its been tough. As an athlete (I'm a rower) we need all the food we can get...so when I went paleo it... (more)
Erik, I was/am a close-to-elite level swimmer with similar work capacity needs as rowers, so I'm not sure what level youre competing at or want to compete at, but here's my advice: When I first started to go paleo I made a mistake of not ensuring... (more)

admittedly, i have not read but one Paleo book and i would like to purchase one that contains a sound comparison of a good neolithic diet vs. Paleo. i bought a copy of the revised "The Paleo Diet" a couple of months back and was supremely pissed... (more)
Come on. You can tell me. What is a (Paleo/Health-related) idea that you have thought (even briefly) about writing a book about? If not, what is a book that hasn't been written yet that you would like to read? Nobody is going to convince me... (more)
I just really liked those "choose your own adventure books" growing up. Maybe a choose your own diet book. You could see what would happen to you at the end. Lots of illustrations too.
I've been thinking about the books I've read on Paleo, and realized that the best books for me weren't specifically about Paleo. Rather they got me to think in surprising new ways about food in general, then later I refined my diet in a more Paleo... (more)
