[E–pub READ] (The Paleo Manifesto)
Meh Wish I would ave got it from the library instead of buying it Nothing new scattershot packed with personal opinion and anecdotes and very little science Annoying to downright offensive in tone I enjoyed this book very much The subject is very interesting and explains much of what is wrong in our modern fast paced lifestyle Durant compared our modern society to animals living in a zoo they and we are living unnatural environments and eating unnatural diets We are so out of our element and are suffering the conseuences with insomnia obesity and A Cidade Das Trevas (Dean Koontzs Frankenstein, high blood pressure The only part of the book Iave a problem with was the attack on vegetarians I don t think a vegetarian diet is unnatural or unhealthy as e seems to imply I m sure that in our paleo istory there were long periods of time where we did without meat for many reasons I choose to not eat meat not because I don t think it s natural but because I don t want to put drugged up factory farmed meat into my body and I don t like it enough to spend the time or money getting wild or grass fed I am not going to eat meat just because my ancestors did any then I m going to eat bugs or other Tarot for Magical Times humans just because my ancestors did We obviously can t follow auntergather lifestyle it s too late for that but we can take some of what we learn and apply as much as we can to our lives The easiest is getting up and moving throughout the day and getting better sleep no eating bugs involved I m not sure ow to review this book It s written in an easy to read voice that I enjoyed owever I was already familiar with the topic I saw the author on the Cobert Report and Dangerous Heat have read several articles onis theories As a result I was rather bored when reading it but that s not the author s fault Again I really enjoyed Birds, Beasts, and Bandits how it was written I thought the theories of the book couldave been strengthened by a rigorous review of the scientific literaturebut I m guessing the publisher wanted to market it to people interested in the general concepts rather than the science behind the theoriesBottom line if you don t know anything about Durant s theories and are interested in alternative diets pick it up If you want technical scientific inuiry or already know something about the caveman diet this book probably isn t for youFULL DISCLOSURE I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an onest review of it I came to this book from the Paleo community where many prominent members used terms like seminal and ultimate in their reviews of The Paleo Manifesto While I may not ave learned anything that will change my actual lifestyle I already do uite a lot of the things Durant advocates and I know about the rest I found tons of brain candy to back up my interest in ancestral ealthYes I agree with the other reviewers that e doesn t give us a whole lot of scientific citations But you know I find a reproduction of a convo with a Harvard professor who specializes in bones much relatable and maybe even convincing than a summary of a study The science is there it s in most of the Paleo literature out there Read Chris Kresser if you want to overdose on it Maybe Manifesto isn t the right word for the title This book is a personal exploration of the lifestyle with bigger implications but I wouldn t describe it as a manifesto for the entire mo Bacon tastes good porkchops taste good Vincent Vega Pulp FictionThis book will The Man in the High Castle hereafter serve as a guidebook for my ongoing experiments with cold showers fasts pound of bacon mornings and sugar free Sundays My periodic experiments with such shifts in behavior and diet brought about by noticeable changes in both weightlifting capability and everyday energyave a new focus and scientific underpinning Ever since I lost fifty pounds five years ago by transforming my daily food and exercise regimen into a conscious choice my decisions Essays from the Visit of Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas to Heidelberg have slowly gravitated toward the Paleo Way without me even being aware of the processWhile my arduous journey allows me to recognize John Durant s book for the wisdom it contains those with doubts aboutis contrarian diet advice or just starting their trek to better ealth will nonetheless enjoy the read and take much from it Durant as the knack of In Darkest London his mentor Steven Pinker for invigoratingis science and psychology citations with personal experiences and captivating na.
