Overview

A breakthrough nutrition strategy for optimum athletic performance, weight loss and peak health based on the Stone Age diet humans were designed to eat.

Paleo-style diets are all the rage as fitness enthusiasts, including the booming nation of CrossFitters, have adopted high protein, low-processed-food diets to fuel their exercise. It all began with the publication of the book The Paleo Diet by renowned scientist Loren Cordain, Ph.D., who presented a breakthrough plan for weight loss and disease prevention without dieting or exercising. In 2005, Dr. Cordain joined with endurance coach Joe Friel to write The Paleo Diet for Athletes. It sold 8,000 copies that first year, but it has sold even better as a backlist title—more than 20,000 units in both 2010 and 2012.

Now, the authors offer an updated and revised edition of The Paleo Diet for Athletes specifically targeting runners, triathletes, and other serious amateur athletes. Cordain and Friel show that by using the foods our bodies were designed to eat—protein, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and even some saturated fats—anyone can achieve total-body fitness and dramatically improve the strength and cardiovascular efficiency. The Paleo Diet for Athletes gives specific guidelines for what to eat before, during and after a workout or competition along with simple, tasty recipes packed with power and wholesome ingredients.

    Not Useful

    I have bought two other books pertaining to the Paleo Diet, which were very helpful. The Paleo Diet cookbook and the Paleo Diet. I am a runner this book was not very useful to me because the content was repetitive. The only information that helped me from this book was what an individual should eat before exercising. The book did not have any recipes. The Paleo Diet cookbook does have some recipes gear towards those who do intense exercising, it just a chapter, but it is helpful. I do not recommend buying this book. I was very disappointed.

    Great information but repetitive at times.

    It has great information for endurance athletes who are moving to the paleo diet. However, at times it felt repetitive and at times an overload of information. I thought the structure or flow in how the information was presented could have been a lot better. It would have also been great to have more detailed examples of what a week or two week eating plan would have looked like. Such as one week when you aren't preparing for a race and a plan for the week of the race.
