6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jodi-Hummingbird TOP 100 REVIEWER on Jan. 28 2012
Format: Paperback
Finally a book I can unreservedly recommend! I've been very interested in books on diet for a while now, but this one really stood out. It doesn't miss out anything vital nor have anything in it that is so wrong that unreservedly recommending it is difficult. It's so well done and the most complete book on diet I have found so far.

This book is a pretty good summary/amalgamation of many of the very best books on diet I have found, such as Eat Fat, Lose Fat: The Healthy Alternative to Trans Fats by Sally Fallon, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food by Catherine Shanahan, Real Food: What to Eat and Why by Nina Planck, Know Your Fats : The Complete Primer for Understanding the Nutrition of Fats, Oils and Cholesterol by Mary G. Enig, The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce Fife, The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America's Favorite Health Food by Kaayla T. Daniel, The Schwarzbein Principle: The Truth About Losing Weight, Being Healthy, and Feeling Younger by Nancy Deville....

Plus: Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Natasha Campbell-McBride, Traditional Foods Are Your Best Medicine: Improving Health and Longevity with Native Nutrition by Ronald F. Schmid, The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy That Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease by Uffe Ravnskov and The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health, and boundless energy (Primal Blueprint Series) by Mark Sisson.

What is also wonderful about this book is that it is also a book about health and treating illness. It deals with the topic of health in some depth and does NOT just tell you to eat well and as your ancestors did and everything will be fine.

I have read extensively the different books on the Paleo diet, and I can honestly say that Nora Gedgaudas' 'Primal Body, Primal Mind' is the best of the bunch. No other book goes into as much detail, is as comprehensive and yet as pleasurable to read. It is, quite simply, the best book about diet out there. I fell in love with this book as soon as I started reading it, and it didn't let up until the end.

Highly recommended!

Easy to read and gave a complete package for anyone wanting to follow an aggressive anti-inflammatory diet. I was looking for more info. on the ketogenic diet.

This book has a very good take on the subject of how what we eat is affecting us. Within the first 2 chapters I had come across issues that had been affecting me for over a year. I like how everything is spelled out very clearly and how the author, Nora Gedgaudas, comes across as a human being, not as an authoritative figure telling you everything you have been doing wrong up until the point of picking up her book.
I would recommend this book to anyone with autoimmune issues and anyone who wants to clean up their diet and eat wholesome healthy food.

Primal Body Primal Mind was an absolutely incredible read and an eye-opener helping to dispell tons of nutritional and dietary myths. Discovering that most often what we consider healthy - think whole wheat, cereal grains, fruits, breads, pastas, low fat foods (even some, if not most vegetables) are NOT healthy whatsoever, and the stuff we consider unhealthy - red meat, saturated fats, cholesterol, is in fact not only good for us, but helps fuel our body's, brain and organs to an optimal level.

By going into our evolutionary past, Nora brings up the eating habits of our paleolithic ancestors and explains how the human race evolved. It wasn't from farming practices or eating tons of starches or sugars like we do today, but by hunting wild game and eating a lot of fat and moderate proteins.

None of the diseases that we have today - cancer, diabetes, alzheimers, ADD and autism existed in such epidemic amounts until recently. And this has not only to do with our lifestyle, but especially our eating habits that are destroying us from the inside out by completely disregulating and throwing off our hormone and blood sugar levels.

This depletes our adrenal gland functions, can throw our thyroids out of whack, and cause severe mood and emotional swings making us susceptible to stress, anxiety and depression at a level unheard of.

What I found to be most shocking, especially to those who are parents or who are going to be soon, is that she explains the concept of Pottenger's in which a generation subsisting on processed, nutrient-depleted foods will inevitably pass on genetic weaknesses and immune system disorder to their children, and so on and so forth.

Not always an easy read but the information in this book is astounding and very well researched. I can never finish this book because I keep giving it away to someone who I feel could benefit from it and then ordering a new one. I have read many books on this topic and this one tops them all.

Format: Paperback
In this book, Nora presented the very latest research on diet and nutrition and how it helps the body to recover from a life time of abuse under the standard recommended diet (low fat, high carb). She shows clearly how sugar in the body (converted from dietary carbohydrate) is so damaging and how limiting/eliminating the carb and replacing it with saturated fat can revert the damage. She also shows how some of the main ingredients of the standard diet (gluten, dairy and soy) are essentially poisons that are killing us slowly.

This is the book to read if you are suffering from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia or feeling tired all the time. It is also the book to read if you seem to be healthy, and just want to improve your health a bit. I thought of myself as healthy. Well, I didn't know what being healthy could be until after I start to seriously follow the low carb, high saturated fat diet.

Although the book does an excellent job on answering WHY you should change your diet, it does not offer much information on HOW to do it. So it is important to read a few other books such as The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living, and search the web for experience from paleo dieters.
