Paleo isn’t (always) magic
Posted in : Thoughts on by : Chris

Something I tell everyone who’s watching my wife and I lose the weight on Paleo: it really is a full -on lifestyle change. You must be totally ready to take on every aspect of your food and exercise.

Essential Reading:The Paleo Solution
Posted in : Books on by : Chris

A great book for someone who wants to know the “why” of Paleo as well as the how. Not a lot of fancy photos (in fact I think none, which makes this a good Kindle purchase) and recipes, just straight up data (in fact almost too much data – at one point I think I
