"After three years of declining performances and difficulty recovering from workouts (things I had attributed to age and constant overtraining), I decided to contact 'Dr. G.' because I knew he had firsthand experience with what I put my body through doing CrossFit and Olympic lifting. The way I felt turned around in less than a month, and my athletic performance followed suit within three months. …I was restored to my previous abilities."—Josh Everett, second- and third-place CrossFit Games finisher

I think this book will be most appreciated by folks who are a bit burnt out on an excessive fitness program or overly restrictive diet. Matt & Garrett provide a practical and well-written guide to help you realize that you don't need to do a lot of the BS that we're commonly told to do and in fact you should do the opposite. I've benefitted already by being less restrictive with my diet and chilling out a bit more on the fitness side of things.
I'm being nitpicky here, but one thing I would've liked to see are a few more specific recommendations (particularly on the diet side). I understand they want to avoid getting too nitty gritty b/c they believe that's part of the problem with a lot of people's approach to health & fitness, but a few more details would've been appreciated.
All in all this is a kick ass book - give it a shot if you are interested in an alternative point of view and sick of the conventional approaches to health/wellness and fitness.
I am a huge huge fan of Matt Stone. I appreciate his unbiased attitude towards health and nutrition which is hard to come by. This book goes beyond nutrition and Mr. Stone even admits that legumes and grains are the hardest digesting food groups by nature. Avoid these 2 food groups and even if you are not strict with your diet which you shouldn't be, then you eat "Paleo" in some way. Or eat some properly prepared grains or eat some white rice.
This book goes beyond nutrition. I thoroughly enjoyed the section on EMF's. Not only does putting your phone in airplane mode potentially save you from long lasting damage but it has a huge positive impact on your mental stress since you are not connected as much as you are if your phone is never on airplane mode.
And here is a question for you: Is it possible that MOVEMENT is more important than what we eat? Or what about HOW we eat versus what we eat? Or HOW we live in other ways? And is eating intuitively which may mean eating oatmeal more Paleo than avoiding eating a food because it's "new" to us? Just some food for thought that has me thinking mostly because of the work by Matt Stone.
The nutrition section was very different to what I expected and has left me with a lot to consider (or reconsider).
Overall the book was well written without being overbearing or having any superfluous content.
The authors answer some hard questions and presented some simple but effective answers.
Anyone who does high intensity exercise or trains hard (as a weekend warrior / as well as works and has a family) and feels like they are still 'missing something' I highly recommend you read 'Solving the the Paleo equation' now.
Great value for money too!
Great book for health fanatics who are struggling but also good for people New to the health scene.
