Product Description

Review

"I am a firm believer in The Paleo Solution. I maintain a hectic schedule that starts early and finishes late. Filming a television series, maintaining my fitness, and being a mom can be harrowing some days. Since adopting a Paleo way of eating I look and feel better, and I know that I am setting a good example for my daughter."—Eva La Rue, star of 'CSI: Miami'

"I've watched as The Paleo Solution healed people after medical professionals had given up. Whether you're an athlete, or simply uninterested in becoming a health care statistic—there are no more excuses! Now you will finally look, feel, and perform as well as your genes will allow. Robb Wolf changed my life, and he's about to change yours too."—Kyle Maynard, author of No Excuses and 2004 ESPY Award winner

"Robb Wolf and The Paleo Solution have changed the way I look at diet and nutrition. He's helped me understand just how critical diet and sleep can be to your overall health and life."—Forrest Griffin, former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion and author of the bestselling Got Fight?

"They say the worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. The Paleo Solution's value is far reaching for the knowledge that it offers. Robb has taken a unique approach to health and lifestyle that will help countless people."—John Welbourn, 10-Year NFL Veteran

Format: Hardcover
Robb Wolf's "The Paleo Solution" is a funny and informative read into the latest "fad" for dieting, although a fad thousands of years old. The paleo diet, or caveman eating, is gaining tremendous popularity with athletes, and new research is proving that the methods with this, the simplest "diet" imaginable, have shown results with decreasing auto-immune diseases (diabetes,cancer, etc.), as well as demonstrating unparalleled weight loss and body composition outcomes. Having attended Robb's seminar previously, it was great to find that he continues to discuss the science behind Paleo-nutrition with plenty of humor and with the ability for any reader to easily understand. The prevalance of grain-based products in our diets have seen a dramatic increase in health issues and Robb easily defines what grains, specifically gluten, is doing to our society. For anyone dealing with any sort of health issues or looking for a truly simple means of weight loss and increasing overall health, "The Paleo Solution" is a must to own.

I really wanted to like this book. I totally believe in the Paleo way of eating and living, but it feels as though Wolf pushed this to print before it was really ready. I will try to be fair and as balanced as I can be.

I enjoyed the information on digestion and the science behind the metabolism of grains, fats, etc. Most of this I already knew, but Wolf had a good approach to the material that offered me some new information. I also found good information on exercise and why it was crucial. I enjoyed the science in these chapters; Wolf has obviously done his homework and was willing to share it, here.

However, several times I was frustrated because he refers to things he "covers later" and never talks about again. There is no index, either, so finding information afterwards is very difficult. After explaining why grains were a bad idea for the body, he mentions that dairy should be avoided, too, but he does not do the work to explain why, which I found sloppy on his part.

The tone of the book could be considered 'fun', I guess, if you don't mind being treated like a silly girl ("Buttercup") who doesn't know much and has no desire to learn anything more. I like to do research and use my brain, though, so I admit I was annoyed at times with his writing style.

The section on physical training could have been better organized; the material could be offered more clearly for those who have not worked out with weights before. It focuses quite well on those who have been sedentary, which I thought was good, but these people may have lots of questions afterwards.

In short, there was some good information here but I think there was more work to do on this book before it went to press. Hopefully a newer edition will be born from this effort. I would suggest Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint for a very thorough and informative take on the Paleo lifestyle.

It may say DIET in bold type on the cover but this is no diet, this is our lost lifestyle summed up.

The connections made by Mr. Wolf in "The Paleo Solution" are staggering.
Diabetes, Heart Disease, Stroke, Cancer, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis- to name only a few, are all hugely collative with elevated insulin levels and chronic systemic inflammation.
What are the root causes of these two conditions you ask?

Eating-
Grains
Legumes
Dairy

Most modern folks don't even know what it feels like to be healthy. It is shocking to think our governments have been directing us down a path of sickness and pain, wow.

Buy this book.

About Me:
I started eating strict Paleo 6 weeks ago.
I've lost 20 lbs. in this time (285 down to 265)
I have way more energy than before.
I have WAY more libido, which me AND my wife love.
I have a stable mood now.
I'm stronger.
I don't crave sugar like it was crack anymore(this is sooooo amazing, I had the biggest sweet tooth, ever.)
I don't have a constantly runny nose anymore.
I don't have "bumps" on my scalp anymore.
I don't have nearly as much acne as I used to.

As you can tell, I was in quite a bad state just 6 weeks ago, and now I feel amazing.
If you're suffering from low energy/ skin conditions/ obesity- you've got to try this book, it will literally change your life, for the better.
Cheers everyone, I wish you all the best on your journeys of self healing.

Format: Hardcover
"The Paleo Solution" by Robb Wolf is the last "diet" book you will ever need to buy. I say that because this book will truly change your eating habits and ultimately your life. Robb teaches you why certain foods are bad for you and he breaks down some very technical information and makes it easy to digest. (no pun intended) This information arms you with the knowledge you need to make good, informed decisions about your food. We have been misguided by the nutrition powers that be in the media and the government and almost everything we thought to be true about nutrition has been wrong. This book rights that wrong. This book empowers you to make food choices that ultimately prevent disease, help you age gracefully, and promote a healthier, better quality of life. He gives you the information and leaves the ball in your court. Do you want to "look, feel and perform" better? If so, try eating Paleo for 30 days. You will not want to go back! This book will be required reading for our gym members looking to improve their nutrition. It has the ability to change lives.
