As the Paleo movement sweeps the nation, the health benefits of following the lifestyle of our hunter-gatherer forebears are undeniable. But what happens when we hit a wall and weight loss stalls, energy flags, or we're tired of restricted eating? We're not cavemen anymore, so why should we follow a strict caveman diet?
In YOUR PERSONAL PALEO CODE, Chris Kresser uses the Paleo diet as a baseline from which you can tailor the ideal three-step program-Reset, Rebuild, Revive-to fit your lifestyle, body type, genetic blueprint, and individual needs. Kresser helps further personalize your prescription for specific health conditions, from heart disease and high blood pressure to thyroid disorders and digestive problems.

A practitioner of integrative and functional medicine, Kresser began following the Paleo diet as a way to cope with his own debilitating medical issues, tweaking the plan to fit his individual needs and constitution. He offers three steps—Reset, Rebuild, and Revive—geared to help individuals use Paleolithic foods as a baseline while personalizing the diet. Kresser focuses on the high nutrient balance of various Paleo foods (meats, vegetables, fruits, and tubers), and details how agriculture has been harmful, pointing out that the hunter-gatherer diet was in many ways healthier than the way we eat in our contemporary world (though they faced many dangers, such ailments as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease were non-existent for our cavemen ancestors). Though Kresser is pro-Paleo (including “nose to tail” cooking and the consumption of organ meats), he admits that “there’s more to life than food,” and suggests following the guidelines for just 80% of the time. With his customized options for thyroid disorders, high cholesterol, and diabetes, Paleo followers will welcome this flexible and informative science-infused text. Agent: Richard S.
