This book is a long list of statements that should all end with [citation needed]

In order to distinguish his work from competing diets, Cordain spends an inordinate amount of time in the early chapters dumping on the Atkins diet, but he does so in a way that skews the research. He complains that... ...more

I'm a big supporter of the Paleo diet concept and the idea that we need to eat the traditional foods our genes need to be healthy.

This book claims to be the last word in explaining what our ancestors ate, and to not be just another book full of fads, but it is seriously flawed. The author seems t... ...more

I've been following Mark Sisson ( Robb Wolf's (The Paleo Solution) advice about how to do Paleo. Since the author of this book is a mentor to Robb, and I really enjoy what Robb has to say, I figured I would like this book. Not even. I think a lot of what he's advocating is... ...more

I was excited for the menu plans included in one of the chapters, until I read through them. M... ...more

Yes, I jumped on THAT bandwagon and read this book. Was curious about they hype since several friends and acquaintances have tried this with grand success in terms of feeling better and getting lean (but not mean). This books makes comments about "research" and "my teams" and "statistics show", b... ...more
