This book is not only created to provide a clearer explanation of what the Paleo diet is but also highlights the long term advantages of adopting this diet plan. Though we have made significant technological advancements over the years we have not been as successful in improving the way we eat. In fact, to be daring it can be said that it has gotten worse.
Processed foods and food filled with preservatives and additives is wreaking havoc on our system. The best way to correct this (which the book clearly states) is to go back to the way in which our ancestors ate. Eat things fresh and cut down on the use of salt and also eat more lean protein and balance it with fresh vegetables and fruits.

Many say diets don’t work but the Paleo method is simply a way to modify ones diet by cutting out the unhealthy components and allowing the body to get back in peak condition from the cellular level. The best way to learn about it is to get the facts.
