Like Ray Audette's Neanderthin (St. Martins, 1999), this is another "if you can't find it in the wild, don't eat it" diet that takes the germ of a useful idea and runs with it. According to Cordain (health and exercise science, Colorado State Univ.), Paleolithic humans were fit and lean because, as hunter-gatherers, they ate what was available: meats low in saturated fats, fresh fruits, and nonstarchy vegetables. Nor did they suffer from heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, the byproducts of our poor eating habits and lack of exercise. Then again, the average Paleolithic life span was about 30 years, not long enough to develop most chronic illnesses. Still, the author asserts that by eliminating grains, dairy, refined sugars, and processed foods from our diets, we, too, can thrive as our ancestor did. Three leavels of diet and six weeks of sample menus, with recipes, are included. ("Library Journal", Feb.15, 2002)From the Publisher:
As seen on "Dateline NBC Healthy", delicious, and simple, the Paleo Diet is the diet our genes were made for. It is humanity's original and optimal diet, designed by natural selection. Written by the world's acknowledged scientific expert on Paleolithic (Stone Age) nutrition, "The Paleo Diet" presents readers with a revolutionary program that causes weight loss in overweight people - up to seventy - five pounds in six months while normalizing blood cholesterol, and increasing energy levels. It is also useful in the treatment of diabetes, hypertension, kidney stones, osteoporosis, Syndrome X, and autoimmune diseases. With over 100 delicious Paleo recipes, six weeks of Paleo Meal Plans, and three levels of the diet for everyone from casual dieters to those who seriously need to lose weight, "The Paleo Diet" gets us back to the way Mother Nature intended us to eat. Loren Cordain, PhD (Ft. Collins, CO), is one of the world's most renowned scientists doing substantial research on the original human diet. He is generally acknowledged as the world's leading expert on the Paleolithic diet. Dr. Cordain's work has been featured on "Dateline NBC" and on the front page of "The Wall Street Journal."
