The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet
This book saved AND changed my life. As I was reading it, everything completely clicked and made perfect sense. I followed the 30-day program outlined by Robb and in a matter of about 2 weeks, my life went from black and white to color. I’m not kidding. I used to have to eat a snack every 1.5-2 hours and after doing the program, I was able to make it from breakfast to lunch without a snack. I could even skip lunch without tunnel vision and getting “hangry”!
Since reading this book, I have never turned back. I’m completely sold that this template is the right diet framework for ALL HUMANS. I’m also a regular contributor to RobbWolf.com and have co-presented at numerous conferences with him. If you only read one book on paleo, be sure it’s this one. If you like to geek out on science, you can totally get into it here – but if you want to skip the “why” and just follow the program, you can do that, too! This book is the paleo bible. Get it.

The Paleo Cure: Eat Right for Your Genes, Body Type, and Personal Health Needs — Prevent and Reverse Disease, Lose Weight Effortlessly, and Look and Feel Better than Ever
The national bestseller that “condenses Kresser’s vast knowledge to help you look, feel, and perform your best.” – Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution
As the Paleo movement sweeps the nation, millions have discovered the health benefits of following the lifestyle of our hunter-gatherer forebears. But what happens when we hit a wall and weight loss stalls, energy flags, illness sets in, or we’re tired of restricted eating?
In The Paleo Cure, Chris Kresser uses the Paleo diet as a template from which you can tailor a simple yet powerful three-step program-Reset, Rebuild, Revive-to fit your lifestyle, body type, and genetic blueprint. You’ll learn how to eliminate the toxic foods that cause illness and weight gain, how to sleep better, exercise like our ancestors, cultivate pleasure, and vastly improve overall health. Kresser helps further personalize your prescription by addressing specific health conditions, from heart disease to digestive problems. Best of all, you only have to follow the program 80 percent of the time; there’s room to indulge, in moderation, and still experience dramatic results.
Comprehensive, dynamic, and enlightening, The Paleo Cure is based on cutting-edge research and combines the best of ancient wisdom and modern science. It provides a flexible and accessible program with helpful charts and quizzes, a seven-day meal plan, and delectable, nutritious recipes to help you lose weight, reverse disease, and achieve optimum health.
Eat the Yolks
A must read for anyone worried about saturated fat, cholesterol and red meat. My good buddy Liz explains how we’ve been lied to when it comes to “health” foods.
We live in an era of health hype and nutrition propaganda, and we’re suffering for it. Decades of avoiding egg yolks, choosing margarine over butter, and replacing the real foods of our ancestors with low-fat, processed, packaged substitutes have left us with an obesity epidemic, ever-rising rates of chronic disease, and, above all, total confusion about what to eat and why. This is a tragedy of misinformation, food industry shenanigans, and cheap calories disguised as health food. It turns out that everything we’ve been told about how to eat is wrong. Fat and cholesterol are harmful to your health? Nope—they are crucial to your health. “Whole grains” are health food? Not even close. Counting calories is the way to lose weight? Not gonna work—nutrients are what matter. Nutrition can come from a box, bag, or capsule? Don’t count on it! In Eat the Yolks, Liz Wolfe debunks all these myths and more, revealing what’s behind the lies and bringing the truth about fat, cholesterol, protein, and carbs to light. You’ll be amazed at the tall tales we’ve been told in the name of “healthy eating.” With wit and grace, Wolfe makes a compelling argument for a diet based on Paleo foods. She takes us back to the foods of our ancestors, combining the lessons of history with those of modern science to uncover why real, whole food—the kind humans ate for thousands of years before modern nutrition dogma led us astray—holds the key to amazing health and happy taste buds. In Eat the Yolks, Liz Wolfe doesn’t just make a case for eating the whole egg. She uncovers the shocking lies we’ve been told about fat, cholesterol, protein, carbs, and calories and brings us the truth about which foods are healthy—and which foods are really harming us. You’ll learn truths like: – fat and cholesterol are crucial, not harmful . . . and why – “whole grains” are processed foods . . . and what to eat instead – counting calories is a waste of energy . . . and what we actually should be tracking – all animal products are not created equal . . . and which ones we truly need – nutrition doesn’t come in a box, bag, or capsule . . . and why there’s no substitute for real food!

The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health
This book is a great primer for those who want to understand paleo from a non-geeky perspective. While The Paleo Solution really sold me on paleo, my husband wasn’t completely convinced… until he read The Paleo Manifesto. John Durant does an excellent job at relating our health to the health of other animals and puts our ancestral health in the context of today’s unnatural world.
In The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health, John Durant argues for an evolutionary – and revolutionary – approach to health. All animals, human or otherwise, thrive when they mimic key elements of life in their natural habitat. From diet to movement to sleep, this evolutionary perspective sheds light on some of our most pressing health concerns. What is causing the rise of chronic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and depression? Is eating red meat going to kill you? Is avoiding the sun actually the best way to avoid skin cancer?
Durant takes readers on a thrilling ride to the Paleolithic and beyond, unlocking the health secrets of our ancient ancestors. What do obese gorillas teach us about weight loss? How can Paleolithic skulls contain beautiful sets of teeth? Why is the Bible so obsessed with hygiene? What do NASA astronauts teach us about getting a good night’s sleep? And how are Silicon Valley techies hacking the human body?
Blending science and culture, anthropology and philosophy, John Durant distills the lessons from his adventures and shows how to apply them to day-to-day life, teaching people how to construct their own personal “habitat” that will enable them to thrive. The book doesn’t just address what we eat, but why we eat it; not just how to exercise, but the purpose of functional movement; not just being healthy, but leading a purposeful life.
Combining the best of ancient wisdom with cutting edge science, Durant crafts a vision of health that is both fresh and futuristic.
