Publisher's Summary

Combining modern genetic science and evolutionary biology, The Primal Blueprint dispels a number of the myths that modern medicine and conventional wisdom have come to accept as fact. Author Mark Sisson takes the listener on a fascinating journey through human evolution, comparing the life and robust health of our hunter-gatherer ancestors with a day in the life of a modern family - exposing potential health issues that arise from trying to do the right things living in the 21st century.
Sisson offers a solution in 10 empowering "Blueprint Lifestyle Laws" that can help us reprogram our genes away from disease and pain towards a direction of effortless weight loss, vibrant health and boundless energy. The listener learns how the right high-fat diet can actually help one lose weight; how popular low-fat, grain-based diets might trigger illness, disease, and lifelong weight gain; why doing too much cardio exercise might actually suppress the immune system and how some of today's most common medications might make a health condition even worse.

If you could sum up The Primal Blueprint in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Creative, Carb-less

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and no. It was great information, but it is best to break it down, listen here and there and take in the info when you are in the mindset to learn. This is not an entertainment book, it is factual and has very good info.

Any additional comments?

Make your body a fat burning machine. Stop relying on carbs and sugar for energy! The teachings of this book were so much fun to implement in my life! I enjoyed playing with the idea of, a caveman couldn't eat this, or this is definitely something a caveman would have eaten. Take out the fact that they had no way of cooking meat, that is our advantage living in today's world. That being said, there were no ovens so bread, cake, baked goods are a no go. I lost 16 pounds, while still enjoying everything that I ate just by playing with the ideas in this book!! I ate less carbs, more veggies and meat, Generally there is a list of foods and things that are able to be eaten as a hunter gatherer. Nuts, fruits, veggies, meat, fish, etc. There are also the easy quick and tasty protein shake meal replacements too (again, modern age)! There is a health concern, however, with hormone injected meat and what not. Mark Sisson is definitely aware of these concerns and offers different sources to purchase your food from. Also with purchasing fruits and veggies to avoid chemicals and other bad things. There is a whole movement with the primal blue print and Mark's website is FULL of helpful information for anyone interested in pursuing this lifestyle! I am truly grateful for coming across this book and the information in it. A word of warning, this is definitely not for those who cannot live without breads, or baked things. I still enjoy them now and then, however, do not eat them as much as i did in the past. It has contributed to my success toward my target weight goal! 15 more pounds to go and I am at my target weight! Make your body a fat burning machine instead of a carb and sugar burning machine! You may just have as much fun with it as I did!
