I think you can safely throw out all your other diet books and keep this gem ! It truly is Paleo perfected !! The Jaminets draw from their backgrounds as hard scientists , and also look at diets of cultures where longevity and excellent health are not uncommon , unlike our culture . It is not a difficult diet to follow at all , it is quite easy . We shouldn't say " diet " . we need to say " this is the way I will happily eat for the rest of my life ." So , lose the wheat bread and the processed junk food with the flavor enhancing chemicals . Embrace health , eliminate cravings , stop battling weight gain and feel great , without exercising like a maniac . Don't worry , there are VERY tasty gluten free breads out there !!
