This is not a recipe book like the countless of other books on the market. This book focuses more on the mindset and the lifestyle to lose weight and live a healthy life.
The fourth book in Bora Gyeong's collect collection, Paleo Diet Blueprint, hopes to shed light on this new food craze sweeping the nation. When discussing the paleo diet, the topic of evolutionary biology has to be addressed because this is a diet that is based off of an anthropological view of man's ancestry and how he, alone, thrived as the apex predator in the food chain. When looking back at early man, as Gyeong does in her book, one sees that man hunted with his bare hands, fished with limited success, and lived off the land by picking and eating only what could be found in the wild. This means proteins, berries, roots, and tubers, and lots of variety in greens. For many, the paleo diet is like a dream come true because it means that they can pack in the protein without guilt; but for others it is a huge change from the processed foods they have come to enjoy, and to a certain extent, become addicted to. As Gyeong points out, the diet isn't about losing weight, although most will on this diet, but becoming healthy in an organic way.
The book gives an overview of Mesolithic man and his and her lifestyle that helped them to survive and thrive in a dangerous and uncertain world; how adaptation to that environment effect the biological evolution of man; and how this knowledge can be harnessed to modern man's physiological benefit by eschewing processed foods and other unhealthy eating styles. The book hopes to provide a solid background on why this type of diet can be highly effective in changing someone's health and promoting a lifestyle more engaged around proper eating, sleeping, and exercise habits.
