      It's my favorite paleo diet book of all. It's just diet.

        I've ordered book but really enjoy reading the blog. It changed my view on carbohydrates - was a little scared of eating too much carbs but not any more.

          I know what you mean. Now I'm scared of eating too little. I was for a while. LOL

            It is the best book I have read on nutrition. Period. Better than the primal blueprint, rob wolf's book, primal body primal mind, etc. Highly recommended.

              Edit - Speak of the devil - my son popped outside and founda box from Amazon near the letterbox - it was the Perfect Health Diet just delivered.

                At first, i wanted to get ''The Paleo Diet'' for my first ''THE diet book''. Then, i came across this thanks to the OP of this thread, read the reviews on the net and basic ideas of the eating plan, and just ordered it.

                Hope it won't disappoint as my first ''overall'' diet book and may it be my last that i need to cover the basics of healthy eating.

                  It's probably my favorite blog. I'm guessing it will be my favorite book, too... but I haven't read it yet because I'm extremely frugal.

                  Oh! IF ANYONE HAS A USED BOOK THEY WANT TO SELL ME I WILL BUY IT!
                  Seriously, please don't hesitate to let me know! I've been looking for a used copy for months.

                    What are people's experiences with weight loss going from PB to the Perfect Health Diet? Actually, weight loss or any other positives or negatives..

                      Primal blueprint is very similar to Perfect Health Diet from what I gather. Perfect health diet allows some grains like quinoa and white rice, but there is no reason why that junk would be an improvement over primal blueprint.

                      Anyway I ordered the book and it has been shipped. The blog is great and really provides demonstrably true and accurate information. Superb. Also check out Paul's interview with Jimmy Moore.

                        They list quinoa under "Possibly Safe Starches". Hardly a real recommendation.

                          This isn't on the kindle and it's $25. Kind of a bummer .

                            The only grain they recommend is white rice. They recommend tubers, like potato, yam, taro, and tapioca. They don't recommend quinoa, they are undecided about it.

                            The allowed daily protein is lower than PB.

                            The authors use a small amount of brown rice syrup for a sweetener. IMO, that's not a good thing, and most celiacs wouldn't touch it due to cross contamination issues.

                            I was stalled on PB, so I tried PHD (they recommended 1400 calories a day) and I lost a bit of weight, but I didn't feel very well while on it, so I went back to PB. The info they provide on their blog and in their book is interesting, but I am not in total agreement with everything they advise. I don't think their diet is for everyone. I'd suggest it to people who have been on a SAD or CW diet all their lives, and have a hard time giving up starches, or for people who have had GI issues. But for someone like me with a broken metabolism, 40 pounds to lose, and severe arthritis, (nightshades - potatoes in large amounts bother me) PB is much better. I like the Jaminets, but I am not sure that they think every food brand or supplement brand suggestion through before recommending it.

                              I'm confused. As far as I can see, the two diets have about a 95% overlap The carb quantity recommendations are identical, 100 - 150g per day. When you say that you dropped PHD and went back to PB, what exactly do you mean?
