Overview

Our great-grandmothers didn’t need nutrition lessons – then again, they weren’t forced to wadethrough aisle after aisle of packaged foods touting outlandish health claims and confusing marketing jargon. Over the last few decades, we’ve forgotten what “real food” is – and we’re left desperately seekingfoods that will truly nourish our bodies.We’re disillusioned with the “conventional wisdom” for good reason – it’s gotten us nowhere.

Achieving optimal health without calorie-counting, “diet foods,” or feelings of deprivation has never been easier. Practical Paleoexplains why avoiding both processed foods and foods commonly marketed as “healthy” – like grains, legumes, and pasteurized dairy – will improve how you look and feel and lead to lasting weight loss. Even better – you may reduce or completely eliminate symptoms associated with common health conditions!

Practical Paleo is jam-packed with over 100 easy recipes, all with special notes about common food allergens including nightshades and FODMAPs. Meal plans are also included, and are designed specifically to target:

·         body composition: fat loss & muscle “mass” gain

·         athletic performance

·         immune health: autoimmune conditions & compromised immunity (allergies, frequent infections)

·         blood sugar regulation: diabetes & hypoglycemia

·         brain health: Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s

·         cancer recovery

·         digestive health:IBS/IBD/Crohn’s/Colitis/Celiac

·         headaches& migraines

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Diane has made a work in Practical Paleo that is as useful as it is beautiful. Are you an athlete? Do you suffer from digestive distress? Have you been diagnosed with an autoimmune condition? Maybe you just want to live a long life and look good naked! Whatever your goals, Diane has done the heavy lifting by condensing the science and a lot of practical how-tos into bite-size pieces."—Robb Wolf, New York Times best-selling author of The Paleo Solution

"The recipes in Practical Paleo are nothing short of exceptional. I say this without hesitation because I tasted every single dish in this book. Watching Diane cook was inspiring, and I'm proud to say I learned much more about cooking just from being in the kitchen with her. This book will not only feed your brain with knowledge of health, but also nourish your body with outstanding recipes."—Hayley Mason, co-author of Make it Paleo

"Practical Paleo is a gold mine for those new to the Paleo diet or struggling to integrate it into their everyday lives. I've always believed that personalization is the key to long-term success, and Diane's 30-Day Meal Plans will help you achieve just that. Practical Paleo will prove to be a resource I recommend to my patients and online community again and again."—Chris Kresser, LA.c, integrative-medicine practitioner
