  • Paleo For Beginners

    By horses273
    I ejoyed PALEO FOR BEGINNERS, The Guide to Getting Started because it is a simple to understand message of the how's, why's and what not's of the paleo philosophy. I enjoyed learning about better food combinations and appreciated the realistic menus and recipes ( lime cookies-yum!) This book in my opinion is worth the time and purchase because it takes what others has made complex and kept it interesting, educating and useful.

  • The caveman diet….

    By Petrula Laudato
    Paleo for Beginners: The Guide To Getting Started (Sonoma Press) emphasizes the value of a caveman diet, which according to current medical authorities, optimizes health and helps avoid many modern maladies. Based on the premise our caveman forebears enjoyed better health, this book promotes a diet heavy in whole, non-processed foods.
  • Chock full of info!

    By mscarmin
    John Chatham includes a wealth of information in his new book; ‘Paleo for beginners.’ Whether you decide to go full Paleo or not I think this book includes some great recipes on how to avoid the most common grains that make up the majority of most people’s diet today. He also busts the myth that ‘fat makes you fat’ when sugar is the real culprit. I think this book is very informative.
  • Everything you need to know

    By RonHeacock
    A little book packing a big impact. This e-book included everything I needed to know in order to get into the Paleo diet: history, philosophy, sample meals, recipes. And all of it packaged in an easy to read, easy to reference book. I think it is a great value for anyone interested in a low carb, high protein way of life.
  • Loved the Recipes!

    By Lawchick12
    I was looking for this book and didn't even know it! I wanted to learn more about Paleo but didn't know where to start. This book was great! I thoroughly enjoyed the informational chapters and am planning to make a bunch of the recipes I found in this book. It even includes a seven day structured meal plan to help the beginner get started! I definitely recommend this book for the recipes alone!
