"Everyone needs a coach. Yes, everyone! When your car is broken, you take it to a 'car coach' (aka mechanic). If your plumbing is backed up, you call a 'pipe coach' (some people call them plumbers). Whom do you go to if you want to improve how you look, feel, and perform? A Paleo coach. Like Jason Seib. In the same way that mechanics are experts in what ails cars (and, most important, how to fix those cars), Jason is an expert in all things nutrition and strength-and-conditioning. He has learned his craft through years of research, trial, error, and helping people. Whether your goal is weight loss, being a top-level athlete, or just regaining enough youthful vigor to chase the kids or grandkids, I'd like to introduce you to the man who will help you meet your goals: Meet your new Paleo coach, Jason Seib."—Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution
"Let Jason Seib be the Paleo coach in your life to help you cut to the chase and get to the meat of the matter about becoming as optimally healthy as you can possibly be! His nuanced understanding of how to live like our hunter-gatherer ancestors in today's world of iPads, the Internet, and American Idol is sorely needed. Other Paleo books may promise to help you lose X amount of weight in two weeks, but The Paleo Coach offers you much, much more. Jason realizes that it takes a dedicated commitment to implement a lifestyle change and homes in on key principles aimed at delivering big changes in your weight, health, and outlook on life."—Jimmy Moore, Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Blog and Podcast

The Paleo Coach is divided into three sections: Think, Eat and Move. Each of these deals with a different aspect of health. As a psychologist I am drawn particularly to the "think" section and heartily endorse Seib's advice about changing your mindset where health and fitness are concerned. He alternates between challenge and cheekiness. Sections like "you can't fix a body you hate" and "scale addiction" seem tailor-made for the weight and body image obsessed (and who among us doesn't feel a tug in that direction?). Readers wh are particularly curious about adopting Paleo eating strategies will find the recipes and nutrition advice in the "eat" section to be particularly helpful.
Seib brings his experience as a fitness trainer, gym owner, paleo guru, and all around intelligent person to bear on life's most important topic: health. This book is so worth it!
Jason sounds like a great coach. If you live near him, you should probably go to his gym. If you don't live near him, his book tells you how to find a trainer near you. His book also tells you that if you have any excuses then you haven't made your health your priority. Everything else can be found in any one of the Paleo books that probably came up when you searched for this one.
I returned my Kindle edition for a refund. I am much happier with It Starts With Food, Practical Paleo, Everyday Paleo, and Well Fed. I was really hoping for something that would help break down the exercise portion of the Paleo lifestyle for best effects. This book is a good overview, but isn't what I was looking for.
I read..a lot! I was a touch obsessed about this book, until it was finished..then I missed it!
Jason has a way of actually HELPING you through his words. He talks a lot about how people self-sabotage without realizing it. I saw myself in a lot of the examples. (If I go off course one day, I just pop the rest of the tires, rather than fixing the ONE FLAT!!! Read the book, you'll understand!) When he promised epiphanies, he wasn't messing around. There were so many light bulb moments for me in here.. But the one I can't get out of my mind is the discussion about our senses. What are you willing to sacrifice in order to TASTE SOMETHING. I imagine that you wouldn't willingly sacrifice your heart health, your ability to walk, etc... but we do!! He GETS IT, and he's able to convey to others in a way that makes sense! I appreciated the insight and his personality coming through. I don't want a drill sergeant attitude, and I don't want someone who doesn't care...I found that he is perfectly in the middle. He DOES CARE about people, and he has a way of encouraging and enlightening you that would've been previously unimaginable for me.
DO BUY THIS BOOK, you WILL NOT REGRET IT!! -I purchased it today in the Kindle version, and I will likely get a hard copy to have as well. This will be my "go-to", and I can't wait to start flipping through it, again! I hope to someday have the opportunity to see Jason for some training. I think very highly of him, and have never met him!
If you're looking for more than just food info, more than just training info, and more than just "mental" information-this book brings it all together....FINALLY!!!
