Hi,

I'm looking for any of the major Paleo books that are translated into Korean. Do they exist? My wife is Korean but she can not understand the complex science behind why she should give up rice, etc. Thanks!

^I second that. The translated sentences don't make much sense.

Nick, if you read this contact me through my email address in my profile. Would love to be able to chat with someone also living in Korea on Paleo.

Thanks! She can read the translation but the words are out of order. Very different sentence structure in Korean.

At Home Plus we have been able to find free range eggs. Do you have any recomendations for grass fed beef or pork here in Korea? Or some typr of whole food store/chain? Thanks again for the response.

Thanks for the responses! I will try and get that Korean book. Thanks! I'm worried about the translation services as the complex chemical words and relationships may be misinterpreted.

For starters ask your wife to google "????????? ???????????? ", that's the translation for paleolithic diet... there are a bunch of decent articles that explain it.

As far as books, I googled it and found this book

http://www.aladin.co.kr/shop/wproduct.aspx?ISBN=8995798319

Not sure how to purchase it though,... never read it but looks promising... titled "Eat and Move like a Caveman" Don't think there are any direct translations of any popular paleo books you and I are familiar with yet.

I'm korean myself and follow a paleo/primal lifestyle about 80-90% of the time... I still enjoy rice here and there,... it's not very enjoyable to sustitute or do without it when eating certain korean dishes. Rice isn't as bad as wheat products in my experience anyhow... it doesn't have much nutrient content, but as long as you follow good soaking practices and cook it in a pressure cooker, it's doesn't wreak as much havoc as other grains in moderation... hope that helps.

now if she's looking to lose weight, then I'd say cut out the rice entirely until at a desirable weight.

Perhaps you can use an online translation program such as: http://translation.babylon.com/english/to-korean/

This about Cordain's The Paleo Diet:

Many foods are restricted on this diet for the reason that that they were not available to our prehistoric ancestors. These include all processed foods, sugar, salt, grains, legumes, dairy products, coffee and alcohol. Potatoes are also restricted because the varieties available now are genetically and nutritionally altered and are much higher in carbohydrates in comparison to those available in Stone Age period.

Translated: ?????? ????????? ??? ???????????? ????????? ?????? ?????? ???????????? ???????????? ?????? ????????? ????????? ??????????????? ???????????????. ????????? ?????? ?????? ??????, ??????, ??????, ??????, ??????, ?????????, ????????? ???????????? ???????????????. ????????? ????????? ?????? ????????? ????????? ????????? ?????? ????????? ?????? ?????????????????? ?????? ?????? ?????? ?????????

Or there might be a way to get a paleo book on a Kindle, take the text and move it to a translating platform.

I know this thread is ancient, but I was looking for a Korean Paleo book for my parents and decided that I could probably contribute a bit.

Over the past year or two, Paleo has somewhate taken off in Korea and now they offer not only Korean books on Paleo, but also translated versions (such as Robb Wolf's "The Paleo Solution"). For those who read and speak Korean try looking up ????????? ???????????? (as fellow poster Christian mentioned) or ????????? ????????????.

Also, now you can find them through the popular ebook sites such as Kyobo (link: http://www.kyobobook.co.kr/search/SearchCommonMain.jsp ) or Aladdin.co.kr.

I've searched around and I haven't been able to find something heavy on the science, such as a translated work by Cordain. That's really what I need as I am searching for something to give to my girlfriend that will explain the science to her in an accessible way. She's already on the diet somewhat, but I think she would stick to it better if she knew a lot of the concrete scientific reasons behind it, not just the general philosophy. I explain stuff in English and her English is fine, but a Korean work would be superior.

My question, does anyone know if anything like Born To Run is translated into Korean? Or any other things on the "Paleo periphery"?

Traditional foods are mostly paleo anyway. As long as she cooks Korean recipes without the use of polyunsaturated/monounsaturated oils for cooking, she's fine. Monounsaturated fats such as olive or sesame oil.. Any plant oils that existed hundred years before.. are fine as long as you don't heat them too much.

None of the traditional Korean recipes have gluten or dairy in them. Rice is a safe starch as long as you don't eat too much. Ancient people did not have the surplus of rice anyway.
