Identical to Paleo as far as I can tell, THAT'S GOOD.

I know it's not really cool to leave a review for something I haven't read, but everything I've read about this says it is the exact same philosophy as the Paleo diet, which is nothing short of life saving to many people. I'm mostly posting this because anyone who finds this book useful may also find a lot of useful information by opening their internet searches to "Paleo" & "Primal" as well. Maybe pick up books/cookbooks by authors such as Robb Wolf and Mark Sisson. I have personally, experienced great changes in my health with this philosophy of diet, and so have many of my friends. On top of that, in line with this book's claims, I even heard recently that my wife's former co-worker has been medication and symptom free of Crohn's after only weeks of being strict on the diet.

I don't care if you use the info in this book exclusively, or come over to join the Paleo crowd. Either way, this diet philosophy is potentially the answer to any disease of affluence including, but not limited to obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, autism, Alzheimer's (prevent), IBD, types of cancer, gout, many auto-immune diseases and even just plain allergies.

I was given Elaine Gottschall's book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle." I stuck with the instructions and within only a few days, much to my amazement, the bleeding and diarrhea stopped! I've been on this diet for 5 months, following it faithfully and feeling wonderful. All symptoms have disappeared! I am a new person with energy as I never had before.
