Summary

Loren Cordain, Ph.D., follows his success of The Paleo Diet with the first book ever to detail the exercise-enhancing effects of a diet similar to that of our Stone Age ancestors When The Paleo Diet was published, advocating a return to the diet of our ancestors (high protein, plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables), the book received brilliant reviews from the medical and nutritional communities. Jennie Brand-Miller, coauthor of the bestselling Glucose Revolution, called it 'without a doubt the most nutritious diet on the planet.' Doctors Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of Protein Power, said, 'We can't recommend The Paleo Diet highly enough.'
