A practical read without all of the science
I purchased this book yesterday and I am more than half way through. I have read multiple books and blogs about the Paleo theory / biochemistry so I was intrigued that this book would offer a more practical approach to living Paleo. This book has some really good tips and advice but I feel that it is highly geared towards athletes or very advanced exercisers. The first few chapters were very repetitive and personally I feel that more than half of the recipes are not practical, easy or as delicious as the author claims. Living Paleo is a choice, period. Just as I respect people who eat low carb, no carb or vegan, I hope that people respect that just because I eat dairy, I am not a criminal. I have been trying to incorporate Paleo like principles but find that I struggle to find a balance between food that is healthy and food that make me feel satiated. I enjoy food...cooking it, finding new recipes and sharing it with friends and family. I just wish there was a happy medium.

Easy to read and informative on living the Paleo way! Excellent!
I just loved this book! I finished it in less than 5 days. Nell Stephenson tells you about her background and how she became involved in the Paleo way of life. Questions you may have about Paleo living/eating are easily answered in this little book. After reading all about the science behind the Paleo lifestyle in Dr. Loren Cordain's books, this book puts that science to use in everyday life. Everything is spelled out in a practical and comprehensive manner. It is like having a conversation with the author. All topics from food shopping/cooking tips, recipes, exercise issues and overcoming obstacles in living a clean and healthy life are covered. I have been easing into Paleo for over a month now and I HAVE NEVER FELT BETTER! My skin glows, I have lost weight, I have more energy. I am healthier and do not feel sick after eating certain foods. This is how we were born to eat -REAl FOOD; not all those foods that are full of refined sugar, processed with chemicals/food dyes and loaded with sodium. Now go buy the book and enjoy living a real life, a Paleo life!!

Very nice guide on Paleo principles, reasoning and some deliciou
Very nice guide on Paleo principles, reasoning and some delicious sounding meals! I hope that the other reviewer who posted about how they respect Paleo blah blah.. but they still hang onto some of the mainstream faulty thinking that they can have the best of both worlds.. didn't give the book 3 stars simply based on their ambiguity about Paleo as a lifestyle choice. So, cheers to Nell for an awesome book and for trying to give it a fashionable and glamorous approach for those "ladies that lunch" that are a hard-sell unless they think it makes them look trendy! Kudos!

My husband & I just started the Paleo Lifestlye, after seeing Nell on Dr Oz. Her writing is very informative and this is an easy read, so no having to look up terminology on words. She gives it to you straight & simple. Tried the Truffles..OMG...satisfied any sweet tooth we had. I DO NOT LIKE CHOCOLATE. But tried the truffles and I LOVE THEM.
Glad I purchased...You will be also!!
