5.0 out of 5 stars sound advice, October 27, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Paleolithic Prescription: A Program of Diet & Exercise and a Design for Living (Paperback)
i've read a lot of crazy things both for and against the so called "cave man" diet. some would say its an unfounded fad diet from the 80's. on the other side you have cave man diet websites telling you beans and potatoes are toxic.

this book isn't either. i feel its a sound, well reasoned look at diet from a different perspective. the basic premise is to look at the foods man's body evolved on. what has man been eating for the last 50,000 years? how is this different from todays diet? how can this paleolithic diet be approximated with modern foods? what would the heath benefits be? how does the modern diet differ in salt content, fat content, carbohydrate content? what diseases are more prevalent with todays diet?

its looks at both the fossil record and modern hunter gather societies to determine the content of the paleolithic diet.

in addition to diet it covers (in less depth) exercise, and some lifestyle.

weather you take up the diet or not i feel its informative and very interesting.
