First off, I am a sucker for someone with a personal inspirational story, and when I started reading the book, I learned that Chris Kresser has one. I am always impressed with someone who spends years trying to heal themselves, and winds up pursuing a career to pass on what was personally discovered to help others. Chris Kresser spent ten years beginning in his twenties trying to recover from a devastating illness that he contracted swimming in polluted sea waters. After consulting many mainstream medical specialists, as well as pursuing alternative health avenues, and finally, finally discovering a nutritional path that helped him, he then pursued studies in integrative medicine, and now has his own clinical practice.
Second, I love good writing. Chris Kresser is an excellent writer, and just seems so down-to-earth. What he says makes sense...good, common, sense. Like when he says that two patients with ulcerative colitis need two different diets - one with absolutely zero dairy and the other with fermented dairy - because one can't tolerate dairy, and the other is actually aided by eating yogurt or kefir. It is so logical that one should listen to one's own body to figure out what works best.
Third, I like people who challenge accepted ideas. When my first child was born, I was given the book How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, and it had some ideas (like antibiotics are not a good treatment for every ear infection) that made sense, but were not accepted medical practice.Read more ›
Chris Kresser has finally written a book, and it could very well be the last nutrition book you ever buy.
Alright, that might be a stretch, since our knowledge about nutrition is always evolving and who knows what we'll understand even a year from now. But as far as evidence- and experience-based recommendations go, Your Personal Paleo Code will definitely be tough to beat when it comes to future books on nutrition.
Your Personal Paleo Code is unlike any other diet book out there, for these reasons:
1. It's not a one-size-fits-all diet.
Unlike many other diet books out there, Your Personal Paleo Code doesn't recommend one diet for everyone. Sure, the 30-Day Reset component reduces most readers' diets down to the bare basics, but once Step 2 is reached, customization is the name of the game. Chris's book may be the only "Paleo" book that permits readers to reintroduce gray-area foods like full fat dairy and properly prepared grains.
Yep, I just said grains and dairy. After all, while a 100% grain-free dairy-free diet may be useful for certain people, it's unnecessarily restrictive for many others. Readers who have good digestion, moderate to high activity levels, and limited health considerations may find that including properly prepared grains not only has no negative impact, but may even support their health and increase their dietary variety. If you love gourmet cheese, the occasional ice cream treat, soaked oatmeal, and even homemade sourdough bread, Chris teaches you how to determine if these foods deserve a place in your diet.Read more ›
In Step 1 of YOUR PERSONAL PALEO CODE, Kresser shares his direct experience working with thousands of patients to help you identify hidden issues in your health that you may not even know about, outline and explain the importance of getting properly nourished through the foods you consume, why gluten, seed oils and sugar are the REAL (toxic!) enemies in your diet, why switching over to healthy saturated fats is going to help you not harm you, the kind of carbohydrates you should be consuming in your diet, why the kind of protein you eat is critical, the value in sticking to real, whole, organic foods that come from the wild, economical options for doing Paleo well on the cheap, a primer on gut health, and so much more. You see the influence of people like Dr.Read more ›
