  • Looking for another book to read

    I am going on vacation in a few weeks and have read the primal Blueprint. I am looking for another book and stumbled across this one.

    Primal Body-Primal Mind: Empower Your Total Health The Way Evolution Intended (...And Didn't)

    Is it worth a read?

    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      Yes, Nora is a good read. It takes awhile to put the many things she says into proportion, but they are good to know.

      Another recommendation: "Mastering Leptin" by Byron Richards. Heartily recommended. You'll learn a ton.

      One I'm waiting for (now in the mail from Amazon):
      The Sugar Fix: The High-Fructose Fallout that is Making you Fat and Sick, by Richard Johnson.

      I found this by listening to an interesting interview of Dr. Johnson on Mercola's site. Well worth a few minutes to hear.

        Primal Body-Primal Mind: Empower Your Total Health The Way Evolution Intended (...And Didn't) totally changed my husband's life. I was preaching this lifestyle for a while without much enthusiasm on his part (he was mainly worried about the financial aspect of grass fed beef, organic veggies, etc). Once he read Nora, he was sold! He tries to get everyone he knows to read it.

          Great book, also recommend Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston Price, Good Calories Bad Calories by Gary Taubes, yada, yada, yada.......
          You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

              The Vegetarian Myth is the most incredibly eye opening book I have ever read.

              No more diets. No more stress. Health made easy. Living made incredible.

                Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

                Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

                  Primal Body-Primal Mind is a solid read.

                    and/or (this is the one book that really got me to think about our food supply; although the 'mostly plants' advise fell by the wayside very quickly)

                    I like this one, too although the 'evidence' is a bit thin:

                      The Omnivore's Dilemma is a good read too. I'm not done it yet, but it's an interesting read.

                        "Master your metabolism" - Jillian Michaels


                        While it isn't a "Primal Blueprint" book, the author explains a lot about a body's hormone cycle and how it the presence of certain hormones in the body hinder or helps weight loss. The author is a trainer for the people who lose weight in the show "The biggest losers".

                          Question: does Jillian Michaels have horns in her book jacket picture, or did she hide them?
                          Because if you didn't know, of that is life made: only of moments; Don't lose the now.

                            +1 for primal body primal mind. It's comprehensive but easy to read
