By Robb Wolf
The author, a former research biochemist, starts with this premise: we are genetically wired to eat more. In centuries past, that was a good fit for our lifestyle. Now, not so much.
Here, he offers a plan to rewire your appetite for weight loss, with a four-pronged approach. He also puts forth a plan to help you test and determine the optimal foods for your diet and metabolism. First a 30-day reset, followed by a “7-day carb test” to determine how your body responds to various carb-heavy foods. Which might mean that some can go back on your menu!
The last third of the book includes recipes, meal plans, and shopping lists.
And despite being a scientist, the author has a fun, easy-to-read style. He’s the only Paleo writer I’ve encountered who’s like, “hey, this isn’t a religion; let’s figure out where we can be flexible.” (A warning for my delicate-eared readers: the author very occasionally uses a four-letter word.)
If you don’t want to get into street fights, don’t go to biker bars. If you don’t want to be tempted by junk food, don’t have it in the house.
[It’s] quite liberating once we get a sense of what foods work for us; we do not need to stress about how much or when we eat.
The Paleo diet is more misunderstood than a Goth kid living in Arkansas.
