5.0 out of 5 stars Primalburgher.com Review, August 7, 2012
this book is LOADED with nutritional information. That should come as no surprise to you as Diane is a certified nutritionist who specializes in all things Paleo (you can read more about her certifications and nutritional counseling services at balancedbites.com). The book is separated into three major sections. Part 1 of the book is titled "The Why-Food and Your Body". In Part 1 of Practical paleo, you will learn everything you need to know about the three macronutrients (fats, proteins and carbohydrates) and how they function in your body. There are also incredibly helpful guides to stocking your paleo pantry as well as guides for cooking fats, shopping at grocery stores, and what to do to maintain your paleo public image when dining out. Diane also goes out of her way to explain how the digestive system works and how chronic inflammatory conditions can be indicative of digestive distress. Finally, Diane outlines the problems caused by gluten sensitivity and spends some time answering some of the most common questions related to switching over into a paleo diet.

Fun side note: there is a lot of crazy crap in this section of the book. I am saying that for a reason. When you get "Practical Paleo" by Diane Sanfilippo, you'll know exactly what I am talking about.

Part 2 of Practical Paleo is titled "Meal Plans". This section isn't just a 30 day guide for the average paleo person. Diane actually went out of her way and designed meal plans for people with particular health problems or physical goals. You'll find dietary guidelines for conditions like Parkinson's disease, cancer recovery, or my personal favorite, Thyroid health (you can read about my own bout of autoimmune thyroiditis by going to the about me section on this blog). There is also something I found VERY helpful in this section. For those of you who train ridiculously hard like I do with kettlebells, you will find a 30 day meal plan to enhance your athletic performance.
This meal plan has really caught my attention as my training is becoming more and more demanding as time goes on, and I have often wondered if I am eating well enough to sustain the load of my workouts. If you are a serious athlete like me, pay close attention to this section. It's incredibly informative!

Ok, we have now come to Part 3 of Practical Paleo, and this section is titled "Recipes". This section is INTENSE!
Not only is this section loaded with amazing pcituers, You'll learn just what you'll need to make all your food paleo friendly. You'll learn how to make things like Indian spiced Turkey Burgers, Dark Chocolate Bacon Bark, and tons more! The food is simple to make and delicious!

This book gets a five-star rating from me. The nutritional information, though it is very dense, is broken down into an easy to read fashion for everyone to comprehend. Diane is truly gifted with taking difficult subject matters and breaking them down into concepts that anyone would be able to understand. The 30 day meal plans for certain conditions and fitness goals are also helpful if you're interested in disease prevention or enhancing your athletic performance. Finally, the recipes in here are PHENOMENAL! If you love cooking and need some healthy inspiration for your kitchen, please, GO BUY THIS BOOK! Practical Paleo is practically the best book hitting the market that explains the nuts and bolts of Paleo Nutrition as well as providing you with a roadmap for success in terms of your health!
