Discover the PALEO diet and the penny drops: GOOD HEALTH IS NO LOTTERY!
YES, Paleo can help you lose weight, but there is far more to it than that. I will quote studies and research to show how a Paleo lifestyle can help you avoid cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many more of today’s health bogeymen.
Paleo Diet: Get Started, Get Motivated, Feel Great aims to introduce and explain the benefits and rules of Paleo.
* I help you get started with a 7 day meal plan packed with delicious recipes for every meal including snacks.
* Chapter two gives you all the reasons, research and facts you will need to convince you that the only way is PALEO.
* There are recipes for Paleo puddings and snacks, so you will never feel hungry.
* You will be eating all your favourite meat, fish and seafood dishes with tasty vegetables.
* Advise on Paleo exercise.
* Ten sporting and screen star celebs who endorse Paleo
I explain why PALEO helps you address issues such as:
* Eczema and allergies
* Bloating and IBS
* Lack of energy
* Poor digestion
So come on! Be fitter, thinner, healthier and filled with energy on PALEO.
The Paleo Diet book sets itself up as a guideline, not a bible which I really appreciate – I hate the standard, mocking “do this or you’re an idiot” of so many similar books. Gordon’s conversational tone is like a trusted friend, taking you through every element of the so-called “Caveman diet”. She talks about the history of food and what changing your mindset and lifestyle can do for you in terms of health benefits. As a cancer survivor myself, this is obviously on my mind a lot both for me and my family, so this was especially welcome. Gordon is also honest, saying that in the short term The Paleo Diet will NOT make your life easier, but then I think things worth doing never are. The costs of following a Paleo Diet do concern me, but the recommendation of another book at the end of this one for those who are “cash strapped” (as we are) gives me hope that we can find a good compromise on this.
There are celebrity endorsements of the Paleo Diet and whilst not a pull for me, I can appreciate why some people would be interested in these. I personally enjoyed Gordon’s references to the “dupermarket” – I believe supermarkets and big businesses are in the habit of manipulation re: commerce and particular products being good for us (when they’re not) too. I agree with Gordon that consumerism and a reliance on sugars, processed foods and wheat is not good for us, yet I’ve felt powerless to do anything but merely limit my family’s intake and make basic switches, like olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
This book is packed with tasty looking recipes that genuinely look delicious and are not just the same-old, same-old I’ve seen before – I was particularly intrigued by the Zucchini (courgette) fries. I feel like my eyes have been opened to the possibilities of a radically different diet, which does not include “rabbit food”, but a real enjoyment of tasty foods, even including desserts (and given as a family we ALL have a sweet tooth, this is VERY important!). Thanks, Elizabeth Gordon!
I am incorporating the recipes into my weekly routine and weeding out some of the nasty health damaging foods listed. This book was really educational
Excellent information from the get go…facts and studies are included and I have to say the section on milk was an eye opener for me. I had a ‘ah ha’ moment and it confused me as to why I had never thought this way before!
Great section on the history of paleo as well as an section including the 10 most famous paleo celebrities, this includes a piece about each star too.
There are 7 days of recipes which includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack and Desserts for EVERY day. I made the hamburgers over the weekend and they were delicious. We have decided we are going to follow the full weeks meals next week to see how we feel.
An excellent book on paleo and I cannot recommend it highly enough…one of the best out there in my honest opinion (I have a few paleo cookbooks!)
