Loren Cordain, a world authority on dietetics and nutrition, has been researching, for more than twenty years, aspects of the genetics, food and anthropology of the Paleolithic Era. The paleodiet, according to the author, is the only diet ideally suited to the human constitution or genetic makeup. The basic rules of the paleodiet include eating lean meats, seafood, non-starchy fruits and vegetables, no grains, vegetables or dairy products and no processed food. The book is divided into three parts and includes bibliographical references and index. The third part offers menus for all three levels of paleodiet and then presents a variety of recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This book is a translation of the 2002 edition, and of course, some recommended web sites are not current.
