Ilove to curl up in my cave with a good digital book, so it’s only natural I’d go hunting for some interesting reads on the Paleo lifestyle to download. The books below I’ve found to be good sources of information for my new Paleo journey. Some zero-in on the Paleo lifestyle, while others explore health and eating from other fascinating angles that make me even more convinced Paleo is the only way to go. I’ll be adding other sources of inspiration here, but I thought some quick book reviews would be a great place to start.
This one by an astrophysicist and molecular biologist husband and wife team, is full of scientific data. “Perfect Health Diet” is a little more cumbersome to wade through than the other books here, but still pretty enlightening. It’s interesting the authors encourage you to eat rice and potatoes – big no-no’s for Paleo purists. For newbies struggling with the stricter Paleo diet, this book’s eating plan may be a good way to ease into it.
“The Fattening of America” looks at our eating habits from a different perspective – mainly the economics of cheap food and what that actually costs us in the long run. The authors, a health economist and a business writer, explain why America is in the middle of an obesity crisis thanks in part to low-cost, high-carb foods – as well as our own lack of willpower to choose a salad over a Big Mac. This one’s interesting and easy to read.
