Book Review: Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo

Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo
Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle

If I had to pick only three words to describe Practical Paleo, those would be: COMPREHENSIVE, ATTRACTIVE, and PRACTICAL. And perhaps a fourth: PERFECT!

Practical Paleo is the most comprehensive and accurate guide to nutrition and lifestyle that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It is the only book I have come across that can stand completely on its own as a guide to healthy nutrition. If there were any book to give to someone to introduce them to paleo/primal eating, this would be THE one.

Not only does the book lay out the why's of paleo/primal eating, it provides diverse meal plans tailored to specific diseases or goals, a wide variety of beautifully illustrated recipes and cooking tips, and many different useful and attractive guides that make things easy.

The entire book is very orderly, information is easy to find, well organized. 

This book lays out the theory and science behind paleo/primal eating in a way that is both easily understandable to the layperson, but also provides enough scientific detail and interesting tidbits to satisfy even very well-read paleo-eaters. Diane balances scientific information and practical application throughout in a beautiful and artful way.

It lays out specific meal plans for handling different conditions/goals, ranging from heart health to cancer recovery, weight loss to athletic performance, and even covering stuff like multiple sclerosis, thyroid conditions, etc.

The illustrations are vibrant and the guides are eye-catching yet simple, and pack so much practical information onto a page attractive enough to proudly hang on your refrigerator.

Practical Paleo feels like a masterpiece; as if years and years of learning, planning, and tweaking went into this book, only to be released when it was absolutely perfect and complete.

I highly recommend Practical Paleo to anyone interested in improving health, well-being, or performance. Or anyone that breathes oxygen and can read...and that last part is optional. Buy it now, you won't regret it.
