The Paleo diet is all about returning to a healthier way of life - cutting out all the heavily processed, high fat, fast food that is an invention of recent times, and getting back to the fruits, veg, meat, seafood and nuts that our Paleolithic, hunter-gatherer ancestors thrived on when our species evolved. The digestive system we have now was shaped back then so is makes perfect sense to return to a similar diet - eating organic, omitting dairy and cooking with healthy fats and the right kind of carbs. This diet offers a welcome change in lifestyle that not only helps us lose weight but also enjoy many additional health benefits. The 100 recipes in this book cover breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. They are easy to follow, low in fat and high in flavour and will inspire and encourage you to cook and eat well so you not only lose weight but also look and feel fantastic.
Food has gotten complicated in the twenty-first century. Choosing our food is no longer about fruits, vegetables, grains and other such obvious ingredients. We now have to contend with calories (of two kinds no less – empty and non-empty), fat and protein content (protein also being of two kinds – protein from plants as opposed to protein from animals), confusing nutrition labels, and precise serving quantities. Added to this is the unruly flood of books, TV shows and nutrition experts proffering advice on the best kind of diet for you – Paleo diet, Vegan diet, Detox diet and so on so forth. This book is not meant to contribute much to that flood. Which is why it’s just 33 pages (with a lot of pictures, so you don’t have to do too much reading). There are tips and guidelines and a few nutritional facts, but the real essence of the book is epitomized by the title itself – Food Body. As Sadhguru says, “Food is about the body… To eat intelligently means to understand and supply the kind of fuel the body is designed for so that it can function at its best.” Food Body is a first step for you to tune into your body and figure out for yourself what suits you best. It opens up the opportunity to experience the true joy of eating, and the possibility for our food to be something more than just a means of physical sustenance. Interspersed with Sadhguru’s wisdom, the book looks at the kind of foods that the body is most comfortable with and explores the most appropriate ways of consuming such foods. It also touches on the latest research which reveals some shocking truths about foods we commonly consume. Look out for the “Did You Know?” and “Keep in Mind” sections which offer tips and interesting facts about food and ingredients, and be sure to try out the simple recipes at the end.
Offers those new to the world of dieting like the ancients over 100 recipes for making meals, snacks, desserts and drinks that exclude dairy, processed foods and refined sugar and includes shopping tips and recipes that kids will like. Original.
A fun and practical guide for adopting Paleo diet principles into your daily life The human body survived for more than 2 million years with the food found in nature: game meat, fish, vegetables, wild fruits, eggs, and nuts. Humans were thriving on this diet high in animal fat and proteins and low in carbohydrates, but things changed when we introduced unnatural and processed foods to our bodies. The Paleo movement is one of today's hottest diet and healthy-eating approaches. Its appeal comes from the fact that it is a sustainable alternative to more restrictive diets that often lead to burnout and failed weight loss efforts. The Paleo diet is about using natural foods to achieve great health and a perfect physique. Living Paleo For Dummies shows you how to adopt the Paleo lifestyle and improve your health and longevity. Offering more than 40 recipes for every meal of the day, and providing tips for getting around common roadblocks such as eating out, this essential guide to adopting a primal diet also provides the latest, cutting edge research from genetics, biochemistry, and anthropology to help you look, feel, and perform your best. The details of eating the foods that our bodies were designed to eat A complete introductory plan to kick start the Paleo journey Tricks to save on the food bill while adhering to a primal meal plan Living Paleo For Dummies is for anyone looking for a fun and informative guide that simplifies the complexities of the Paleo Diet while outlining and explaining the science behind the benefits.
The idea behind the Paleo, or 'caveman', diet is simple - eat the food we humans were genetically and biologically meant to eat, as our hunter-gatherer ancestors once did, and we can all experience near-effortless weight loss, increased vitality and greatly improved health. But does it really make sense to restrict yourself to the limited range of foods available to our ancestors? Although we share a lot in common with them, we each have our own genes, tastes and health goals. In this groundbreaking book, leading expert Chris Kresser offers his unique solution - a 3-step plan that will fit your body, your lifestyle and your specific health issues. Start by following the basic Paleo plan for 30 days and enjoy a satisfying diet of lean meat, fish, non-starchy vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds but avoid grains, dairy, sugar and refined foods. After this 30-day plan, Chris helps you re-introduce certain foods in moderation to find out what agrees with you and what doesn't. So what are you waiting for? You can enjoy life more, look slimmer and feel more vital. And because Chris advocates an 80/20 approach - we all have to live in the real world after all - you can still enjoy your favourite treats from time to time. In addition to dietary advice, the plan also includes guidance on fine-tuning your sleep, exercise and response to stress - all crucial elements in living a life that suits our natural design.

When you open your eyes, you are sitting on a small rock, about 10,000 years ago. The paleolithic era of history is almost at its end. Birds are flying around. There are trees and animals everywhere you look. The air is clean and so nice to breathe in. A cool wind is blowing through your face. Suddenly you feel hungry and you know that it’s time to eat. You call some of your fellow tribe members. Spears are brought out and after some chasing and running you all hunt down a bison. You take out meat from the bison’s body and roast it on fire. Then someone brings in some natural herbs and berries from nearby and thus, a delicious well-balanced meal is served and everyone gets his share. Tired as everyone is after the hunt, everyone sits down to eat. Read about the pros and cons of the paleo diet that is so popular today.
