Since then I have bounced back and forth from the Mediterranean diet to the Paleolithic diet more than a few times. From my experience, I can definitively say that the NeanderThin diet is the only diet that has banished my sinusitis, joint pain, and persistent acid reflux issues. In addition, it's the only way of eating that provides effortless weight loss for me. My energy and mood are vastly improved on this diet too.
I highly recommend this book.
This books is a bit older, but still relevant in most of its data. I'd say that about 90% of it is still relevant.
If you already have several books on this topic, then don't bother.
But if you are new to the topic of Paleo / Primal eating and physical training then this book is as good as any other to start with.

Neanderthin is a strict approach, but lays out a clear ground zero for books which followed. Sadly, its out-of-print status prevents revised editions to comment on the vast work done since the 1999 printing. Still, it is the best starting point for anyone interested in the reasons for a Paleo-style of eating.
But for the person that is really into the Caveman/Paleo/Primal/Ancestral lifestyle and way of eating this is a good read. I recommend this in the same sense that I recommend Boyd Eaton's "The Paleolithic Prescription", Vilhjalmur Stefansson's "not by Bread Alone" or "The Fat of the Land" and Dr Walter Voegtlins "The Stone Age Diet". These books help keep me motivated and on the path.
Neanderthin cuts a swathe through the medical mysteries of obesity and chronic disease. It clearly shows how our health problems relate to major changes in the diet some 10,000 years ago. It holds aloft a new gold standard in nutrition- the Paleolithic Diet, the diet of ancient man. The Paleolithic Diet is 2 million years old and looking stronger than ever.
The new edition is expanded with more detail on the relationship of food and disease, what to eat, how to go about the diet, an easy to follow exercise program and more recipes.
Ray Audette's personal odyssey is inspiring. His history of nutrition is fascinating. His explanations for obesity, arthritis and other diseases are convincing.
If you diet hasn't given you the results you need, grab Neanderthin and go for it. It certainly worked for me.
