Having Trouble Finding Answers to Your Paleo Questions? Do You Want to Lose Weight And Regain Health? Do You Want to Prevent And Reverse Disease? Could You or Someone You Know Benefit from a Healthier Lifestyle? Do You Want to Feel Better Than Ever, But Not Sure Where to Start? If you’ve answered YES to any of the above questions, then this book is for you.

Paleo from A to Z makes it easy for you find out about the Paleo lifestyle. The book consists of over 500 topics using jargon-free language and aims to dispel the misinformation that surrounds health and nutrition.

The listings are set out in an easy-to-use A-Z format using a simple cross-referencing system linked to related topics. In this book you will learn:

The foods to eat and avoid that allow you to enjoy better health. How to decipher acronyms such as HIIT, VLDL, RCT, BPA and AIP. Simple tips to improve sleep, reduce stress and regain vitality. How to better understand concepts such as blood tests, the role of inflammation and disease, hormones, and epigenetics. How to make sense of the other choices that contribute to wellbeing – such as the toxic chemicals you should avoid in your food, on your skin and in your home.

This is the perfect book for anyone thinking about trying a Paleo diet, for new Paleo users who need some extra information, or for those experienced with the Paleo lifestyle who just want a quick reference guide and some fine tuning.

Each entry not only answers a question but also keeps you motivated to stay on your journey to better health with practical tips, tricks and trivia. An appendix of research citations and resources are included too.

The sooner you get your copy, the sooner you can be on your way to better health.

My Thoughts:

My opinion is that this book is best suited to someone who is already generally familiar with the Paleo lifestyle and is looking for a more in-depth resource.  The layout is dictionary style, making it less of a comprehensive read and more of a reference book.  Some of the terms are quite scientific in nature, so in my thinking, it’s for someone really wanting to delve in to understand all the components to a Paleo lifestyle.  It is not a cookbook.  You won’t find recipes, but principles.  I found it a great resource.

Rating:

4 of 5 stars.
