As was mentioned in other reviews, it was disappointing not to have more menu suggestions and the website only had a very few offerings of recipes. I consulted the Paleo Diet book and although it was a little helpful, there was contradicting information to the Acne book (about sweet potatoes and nuts, for instance) so we weren't sure what to do in those cases. Additionally, Dr. Cordain suggests adding one food group back in at a time each month, but instead of a specific food given as an example, he gives pizza as the example which has flour and cheese together....??? two very likely candidates to cause acne.
I was also surprised that Dr. Cordain didn't even give mention to the fact that there might be a link between the problems people are experiencing with grains and the fact that we are not soaking the grains ahead of time, which breaks down phytates (the part of grains that make them quite indigestible). Soaking grains is an ancient practice as well and might very well help many people have a plant-based source of protein that there bodies can then assimilate.
The amount of protein in ratio to veggies and fruits has been a big question for me about this diet. My daughter seems to want to eat a lot of meat (mostly chicken) and fruit. And she does always seem hungry, constantly foraging.Read more ›
The other wonderful thing about this book is that no matter who you are, the diet itself can be applied. If you suffer acne, but are an athlete, or you are seriously wishing to lose some weight, this is a diet that will meet your goals in those areas as well as clear up your acne.
My only beef about this book is that although it really explains the process of acne formation well with scientifically backed research and tells how to alter your diet more specifically to clear up acne, in order to truly understand the diet aspect of it "The Paleo Diet" by Loren Cordain is pretty much a necessary addition to this book, which itself is a good read. Fortunately for me I already owned "The Paleo Diet" and had been utilizing it for a couple months already when I got this book which helped me tweak and understand the process more fully.
That is the only reason I give it 4 stars as opposed to 5, because I know if I needed two books for the whole answer and only had one that had touted to give me everything, I would be slightly peeved.
