Examining the healthy lives of our Paleolithic ancestors, this book shows how our modern diet leads to weight gain and “diseases of civilization” such as diabetes and depression. It provides dietary strategies to counter the nutritional problems of eating grains, gluten, soy, dairy, and starchy vegetables.
The healthiest indigenous cultures have lived on whole, natural foods--seafood, wild game, healthy grass-fed animals, and, in some cases, whole grains and raw dairy. In this book, Dr. Schmid blends the wisdom of these traditional diets with modern scientific knowledge to create a commonsense primal diet that rebuilds health and improves longevity.
