Could an athleteor even an average personreally maintain a balanced body without any grains or dairy? Before agreeing to the job, she decided to follow the diet for two weeks to see how she felt. In that short amount of time, she lost eight pounds without feeling hungry or deprived, and her blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol all stayed within healthy limits. She gladly provided the recipes and now offers a paleo menu as a regular part of her catering business.In this book, Conrad explains the basics of the paleo diet and then provides ninety delicious recipes for every meal of the day, plus some snacks and desserts. She also includes the menu for her twenty/eight/day paleo challenge for those just starting the paleo lifestyle.

REAL Paleolithic diets are MUCH better than the standard diet in America today (with the fact of its complete restriction of grains, legumes, and soy), however this author (as so many others pumping out so-called Paleolithic Diet books), they have two major problems in her approach.

Number one, it is simply impossible to have an ACTUAL Paleolithic diet that is vegetarian or vegan... in fact, wild animals back then - like today - have significant levels of saturated fats and primitive peoples (as research has shown time and time again) prioritise on the most fatty cuts.

Paleolithic is NOT low fat, nor is it primarily - much less totally - plant oriented.

Sorry, but it has no archeological , anthropological, or scientific basis.

It is JUNK SCIENCE!!!

You personally may like it, but it is NOT Paleolithic!

Number two is the over emphasis on fruits and vegetables (total in this case) that so many writers have on "supposed" Paleolithic Diets.

Once the primate that became Man left the jungle, he no longer had routine access to RIPE fruits and vegetables. People with no farming or wilderness experience fail to grasp that fruits and vegetables are NOT ripe year around, and have very short time windows of when they are ripe. And Paleolithic Man had no means of preservation.

What was available year round was animal foods. Fatty, high protein, no carb animal foods.

Also, the Comment as to the life span of Paleolithic Man (as shown in one of Cordain's book reviews), it appears to have been pulled out of thin air. And while the AVERAGE life span of Paleolithic Man was lower than that of today, that is because infant mortality (which was horrific back then - for both the mother and baby), infectious diseases (no vaccines or antibiotics), and accident rates of just daily life were high. That caused the AVERAGE to show abnormally low. Paleolithic populations that reached adulthood tended to live much longer, easily into 60s and longer.

Specifically, archeological and anthropology experts and research consistently show that when Neolithic Agriculture (full scale farming, with heavy emphasis on starches - grains, legumes, and starchy vegetables - took hold, those Neolithic Peoples had MUCH lower life spans, significant chronic illness problems, dental problems, and were significantly shorter than their Paleolithic (and even animal husbandry Nomadic) predecessors.
