In The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health, John Durant argues for an evolutionary – and revolutionary – approach to health. All animals, human or otherwise, thrive when they mimic key elements of life in their natural habitat. From diet to movement to sleep, this evolutionary perspective sheds light on some of our most pressing health concerns. What is causing the rise of chronic conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and depression? Is eating red meat going to kill you? Is avoiding the sun actually the best way to avoid skin cancer?
Durant takes readers on a thrilling ride to the Paleolithic and beyond, unlocking the health secrets of our ancient ancestors. What do obese gorillas teach us about weight loss? How can Paleolithic skulls contain beautiful sets of teeth? Why is the Bible so obsessed with hygiene? What do NASA astronauts teach us about getting a good night’s sleep? And how are Silicon Valley techies hacking the human body?
Blending science and culture, anthropology and philosophy, John Durant distills the lessons from his adventures and shows how to apply them to day to day life, teaching people how to construct their own personal “habitat” that will enable them to thrive. The book doesn’t just address what we eat, but why we eat it; not just how to exercise, but the purpose of functional movement; not just being healthy, but leading a purposeful life.
Combining the best of ancient wisdom with cutting edge science, Durant crafts a vision of health that is both fresh and futuristic.
Robert Lustig’s 90 minute YouTube video Sugar: The Bitter Truth, has been viewed than two million times. Now, in this much anticipated book, he documents the science and the politics that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease over the last 30 years.
In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.
To help us lose weight and recover our health, Lustig presents personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress; and societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation. Compelling, controversial, and completely based in science, Fat Chance debunks the widely held notion to prove “a calorie is NOT a calorie”, and takes that science to its logical conclusion to improve health worldwide.

In his midtwenties, Dave Asprey was a successful Silicon Valley multimillionaire.

The Art And Science Of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide To Making The Life Saving Benefits Of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable And EnjoyableCarbohydrate restricted diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught.

A hilarious look at the eating habits of the fit and famous from Gwyneth's goji berry and quail egg concoctions to Jackie Kennedy's baked potato and Beluga caviar regimen Rebecca Harrington leaves no cabbage soup unstirred in her wickedly funny, wildly absurd quest to diet like the stars.
Elizabeth Taylor mixed cottage cheese and sour cream; Madonna subsisted on sea vegetables; and Marilyn Monroe drank raw eggs whipped with warm milk. Where there is a Hollywood starlet offering nutritional advice, there is a diet Rebecca Harrington is willing to try. Facing a harrowing mix of fainting spells, pimples, and salmonella, Harrington tracks down illegal haggis to imitate Pippa Middleton, paces her apartment until the wee hours drinking ten Diet Cokes à la Karl Lagerfeld, and attempts something forbiddingly known as the Salt Water Flush to channel her inner Beyoncé. Rebecca Harrington risks kitchen fires and mysterious face rashes, all in the name of diet journalism. Taking cues from noted beauty icons like Posh Spice (alkaline!), Dolly Parton (Velveeta!), Sophia Loren (pasta!) and Cameron Diaz (savory oatmeal!), I'll Have What She's Having is completely surprising, occasionally unappetizing, and always outrageously funny.

As seen on ABC's My Diet Is Better Than YoursAbel James, creator of the wildly popular The Fat Burning Man Show, brings us a Paleo inspired 40 day weight loss program that helps readers ditch the processed foods, return to basics, and drop up to 20 pounds in 40 days. Growing up on a farm in New Hampshire, Abel James ran wild and ate everything. Fresh zucchini in August, huckleberries by the fishing spot, kale all year round. But when he moved to the big city, he started eating a “modern diet” off the supermarket shelves and, by his early twenties, it showed. Abel's doctor recommended a low cholesterol, calorie restricted diet and frequent exercise, so he took to running thirty miles per week and nibbling low fat food. But he only got sicker. Now Abel eats like a king, never goes to the gym, and is in the best shape of his life. His plan is simple: eat plenty of whole and naturally edible foods, and be skeptical of manipulated, processed food products. Foods found in the wild will return the human body to its optimal fat burning stage and reverse the damage done by decades of poor eating. Abel James shows that the answer to vibrant health doesn’t live in a calorie restricted diet, a magical fat blasting pill, or a miserable exercise program. The secret is sticking to our roots and knowing where our food comes from. The Wild Diet is the key.
