An effective and practical program based on the Paleo lifestyle, customized to fit your needs!
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. Along with a 7-day meal plan and delectable, nutritious recipes, Your Personal Paleo Code offers natural solutions and an avalanche of groundbreaking advice on how to restore a healthy gut and immune system; how to eliminate toxins; which fats to eat liberally; how to choose the healthiest proteins; and much more. Best of all, you only have to follow the program 80% of the time; there's room to indulge in moderation while still experiencing dramatic results.
Based on cutting-edge scientific research, Your Personal Paleo Code is designed to be flexible and user-friendly with effective action steps to help you lose weight, reverse disease, and stay fit and healthy for life.

Putting it all together in digestable form
I would recommend this book to anyone considering Paleo, already doing Paleo, and even those like me who have been doing it for many years.
Chris lays it all out, breaks it into "digestible" pieces that anyone can get behind and makes it easy to start and know where you are going as you progress.
No, I don't think there is are many books with this much information that you can weave into a one-sitting listen/read. But that's ok. Each chapter builds on the one before. You get a foundation and then it progresses.
I have been part of the Paleo lifestyle and many groups for 3 years since I read Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. I decided I was going to die if I did not. 36, obese at 320lbs, and sick all the time, prediabetic, bad joints..... the list goes on. The entire idea of Paleo has progressed and refined over this period and I never thought anyone could put it into a cohesive tome for the beginner to the advanced. But Chris has. Love the book.

If you only read one book on health, this is it!
Yes, there is so much good information here
Funny thing but it wasn't the book, it was one of the reviews about the book from someone complaining that he had too much self promotion. I didn't get that. There is so much information he couldn't possibly include everything in one book so he reefers you to his website from time to time. And he says "personal paleo code" a lot I guess, but that's what your trying to figure out! I think he just might have been annoyed by how the narrator puts emphasis on it.
Fantastic book! I've read LOTS of diet books and listen to podcasts all the time and I found this one really well rounded and includes so much really great information.
