The Paleo Diet for Athletes is a great additional source of information for people interested in the Paleo diet. The book first goes over the general benefits of the Paleo diet, with specific information for athletes. The book is then divided into three sections, one on endurance meals and the other on strength building meals, and lastly on desserts! These two sections are filled with recipes and meal plans to guide the athlete through the perfect pre/during/post workout meal. The recipes were all very easy and very tasty looking. I can’t wait to try them out!

Eat Like a Caveman, Train Like a Professional If you’re looking for a healthy lifestyle change and not just a fad diet, the Paleo Diet for Athletes Guide is your book. Even though “diet” is in the title, this book is written as a lifestyle change. The meal plans and recipes given are used for training but they can also be incorporated in everyday life. Healthy eating is just one part of the equation to a healthy lifestyle. So this book gives us the resources to eat healthy while working out, and can be used by your average Joe or your professional athlete. The advice is simple and the meal plans and recipes are simple, too. My favorite is Paleo Pesto Chicken with Paleo Apple Crisp for dessert!

The Paleo Diet for Athletes incorporates food and fitness guidelines for everyone - even if you're not an Olympian. Useful for new and veteran athletes, the book highlights the benefits of the Paleo lifestyle by focusing on diet, performance, and recovery. To incorporate the diversity within each sport, the book encompasses tangible diet and recipe plans to work into any physical activity. Paleo Diet for Athletes is less a diet than a way of life, and whether you’re an experienced jock or still struggling to get to the gym, this book will set the course to be a Spartan warrior.

The Paleo Diet for Athletes is a simple, easy way to start off a new diet and a new perspective. Diet and exercise books can get confusing, but this is not one of them. It’s set up to make reading and creating these recipes as easy as possible, with no extra fuss. Along with the recipes, it talks about the importance of types of food for endurance and the sport you’re exercising for, something that I had never thought to do before. A great book to get started on a new, healthier eating style.

“Paleo Diet for Athletes” is a must-read book for those who are done with carbs but need the energy to work out and stay active. By showing the science behind how the body processes food and uses energy, which is based on the needs of our ancient ancestors and their hunter-gatherer way of life, “PDFA” makes a good argument for dumping grains and legumes (it says they’re “toxic”) and instead using lean meats, lots of veggies and some berries and nuts to stay healthy while training and working out. Not only that, the shopping lists and recipes provided flesh out a start-to-finish “lifestyle” that should appeal to any athlete or fitness buff who can’t or doesn’t want to eat grains and legumes.

Whether your sport is endurance running, hiking, cycling, or one of dozens of other sports, the Paleo Diet for Athletes Guide tells you what to eat and when to eat for that quick jolt of energy or long-term energy. Besides tasty meals filled with vegetables, fruits, nuts, and lean proteins, this book even has the recipes divided into sections telling the reader when to eat a particular meal, such as the endurance pre-workout plan, the endurance during workout plan, and the endurance post-workout plan. Regardless of sport, or you current level, this book can help make sure you stay on the right track with your meals.

I became vegan this past year and I've been having a difficult to keep my energy level up when I work out. Paleo's Diet for Athletes directed me in the right direction for snacks, breakfast and dinner. The book is split up by sport/activity and points it's reader in the right direction of food. Another thing I liked it didn't harp on the calories a person consumed on each meal. I recommend these recipes for anyone who has to cook for a marathon runner, athlete in training or a high school sport's team member.

This book explains the Paleo diet pretty well. It provides some quick and easy recipes that follow the Paleo diet, and even includes a dessert section. I have a friend who really changed her body last year by following the Paleo diet. She went from looking like a middle-age mom to sporting a string bikini at a fitness competition. I admire her motivation and dedication, but the Paleo diet made it possible for her. I read this book to check out what she was doing, and it intrigued me. I’m going to give it a try!

As an athlete constantly working on improving my endurance and physical condition, I have tried diets that revolve around counting calories or carb-loading but to no avail. The Paleo Diet for Athletes Guide opened my eyes to the natural benefits of incorporating unprocessed foods such as lean meat and fresh produce into my diet. With a wide range of satisfying dishes designed to help me through my workout routines, I am finding that I have more energy to fuel each session. The garlic chicken recipe will transport your senses to the kitchens of Tuscany and the combination of juicy mango with delicate salmon is truly magnificent. With rich desserts to suit every craving, there is nothing to keep you from becoming healthier and happier.

I always think of diets as something that people just do to become skinny by eating things they don’t like. This book changed my viewpoints on diets in general. I think my favorite part was the collection of recipes like Yambana Nut Muffins or the Southwest Grilled Salmon with Mango Salsa. It really changed my idea that eating healthy means eating bland and gross food. The best part about this diet is that there are no calorie restrictions, just a focus on eating healthfully. There is no better guide out there that will teach you how to become healthy long term.

This is an important handbook for endurance athletes, but also a real eye-opener for anyone who cares about wellness, fitness and anti-aging. This book illustrates how less is more! The Paleo diet is a lifestyle of basics: lean protein, good fats and plenty of fruits and vegetables, and here are simple and wonderful recipes for specific sports before, during and after the work-out, and low-impact desserts. A great find.
