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.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
