The Paleo Solution

A 30 Day Paleo Diet that will help you get healthy.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet by Robb Wolf and Dr. Loren Cordain is an extension of Cordain's The Paleo Diet, an eating lifestyle plan that involves eating the foods our hunters and gatherers ancestors survived on. The Paleo Solution has a more lifestyle-focus to it and provides you with the information and tools you need to lose weight, get fit, and reverse disease in 30 days.

The plan is a call-out to return to the plant-based and unprocessed diet of the Paleolithic period. The theory with this way of eating is that this was the diet that our early evolving human bodies were adapted to and therefore it is the style of eating that is optimal for our health in order to live long and stay lean and healthy.

Throughout the book, you will learn what simple foods will improve your appearance, how to lose unwanted weight and how to improve athletic performance. There is a 30-day meal plan included along with beginner and intermediate exercise programs.

PRO
  • Avoids processed foods
  • Goes well beyond eating the recommended "five a day" fruits and vegetables
  • Natural and plant-based diet has been associated with the prevention of many diseases and with maintaining a healthy body weight
  • Exercise plan is time-efficient and result-friendly
  • Likely to result in weight loss
  • Promotes a very nutrient dense way of eating
  • Can be followed by someone with Celiac Disease, diabetes and some heart conditions
  • Dispels many myths in regards to fat, complex carbohydrates, grains and the Food Guide Pyramid
CON
  • 30 days may not be long enough for those that have large amounts of weight to lose
  • Avoidance of processed foods, flour and many cereal grains may be difficult for some to follow in the long-term
  • Not vegetarian-friendly
DIET and NUTRITION

The Paleo Solution teaches you about digestion, how protein, carbohydrate and fat influence hormones, and how this plays into fat loss, health or disease. You will also understand how dietary fats affect performance, health, longevity, or weight loss and weight gain. The book also discusses how lifestyle factors such as sleep and stress influence the hormone cortisol and may contribute to weight gain.

It also includes a detailed 30-day meal plan that adheres to the Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet includes eating foods in their natural and unprocessed form. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole eggs, lean proteins such as lean beef, chicken, and fish are the backbone of this diet, whereas sugar, grains, dairy, legumes and processed foods, most flours and other refined ingredients are not allowed.

EXERCISE

The Paleo Solution gives you a plan for exercise to help speed up your results. You receive exercise plans for beginner and intermediate fitness levels.

More information on the exercise portion of the program will be provided when the book is released.

CONCLUSION

As a follow up to the Paleo Diet, The Paleo Solution gives people a drawn out plan that will help them not only lose weight, but embrace a lifestyle that will keep them healthy for years to come. The benefits of this program not only reach in areas of weight loss, but in long-term health concerns as well.

Since most of the American Diet runs counter to the fresh and unprocessed nature of eating the Paleo way, the diet may be challenging at first. But it is definitely a diet that can be maintained in the long-term as long as you have the resolve and determination to eat clean in order to feel and look better today and tomorrow.

This is a great lifestyle, and Robb explains the science behind it very well. It really helps with both physical and mental health, is very sustainable, gives big weight loss, and is pretty much the ONLY thing I've ever tried that worked. It's amazing.

I've struggled with my weight for about the past 15 years, yo-yo'ing all over the place. This book, and the whole Paleo lifestyle quite literally saved my life. My weight was at 279, my blood pressure was at 148/96, my colesterol was high. I still have a long way to go, but in just 6 months I've lost 40 lbs, my blood pressure is down to 114/78, my colesterol is great (with good cholesterol high, and "bad" colesterol low), and for the first time in, well, about 15 years, I actually feel good, and look healthy.

I think the non-vegetarian friendly belongs on the pro side not the con side

I have been 100lbs overweight for 25 years- with high blood pressure,very high Cholesterol/triglicerydes, sleep apnea/severe snoring and on the verge of diabetes- as well as facing knees and hips replacements. I started the paleo diet 9 months ago- within days I felt like a new man. Today- I have lost 80lbs- blood work is PERFECT (Dr. is astounded) - sleep apnea and snoring have vanished and I wake up at 5am everyday for the most gratifying part of my day with a 4 mile walk in under i hour! My knees and hips are PAIN FREE!! The proof is in the results.

I've been on the Paleo diet for going on six months now. I've lost weight, I no longer have the carb highs and lows...
I've never felt better in my life! Give this diet a try for thirty days. You won't be sorry.

This diet has been awesome. I've lost 15lbs and didn't lose any strength. My cholesterol is down and all other health indicators are improved.

Going into my second week I've lost 12 lbs and have also lost that tired and hungry feeling after eating a diet consisting of too many carbs. The meal suggestions leave me very satisfiled. Have recommended the Paleo Solution to 4 friends so far.

I'm currently on week 2 and I'm feeling more energy than I have in the last 10 years. I work out 6 out of 7 days, high intensity/low intensity combo, and I consume aroun 1200 calories a day. It's hard at first but I'm getting the hang of it.
