The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. ~ William James
Are you interested in the Paleo Diet but haven’t decided if it’s right for you? Do you want to know what science has to say before throwing out all of the food in your pantry? Then this book is for you!
This book outlines a gentle, stepwise plan to gently guide you toward making wise some lifestyle changes without going straight into stress and overwhelm—which leads many to failure.
This is not just a how-to-go-paleo guide or a recipe book—it’s much more. It delves into why the modern Western diet is leading us down the road to pain and misery and chronic illness, points out misinformation you hear almost daily from so-called nutritional experts, and offers strategies to help you put out the biological flames before they burn hole in your health and longevity.
The Paleo Diet points us toward living more like our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Returning to this way of eating—and living—can have enormous benefits for your health, including restoring your energy, firing up your metabolism, and reversing the inflammation that leads many to developing heart disease, obesity, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. This book looks at Paleolithic nutritional principles based on what the latest science telling us—as opposed to making lofty, unsubstantiated claims.
Topics covered include surprising facts about how differently sugar and fat act in your body, the saturated fat myth, and antinutrients in common foods that silently wreak havoc on your immune system. A chapter is also included that may forever change how you approach exercise! The book also covers the latest research about the massive microbial population living inside you and the critical role it plays in every aspect of your health.
The deeper sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. ~ Kahlil Gibran
