Paleo Primer

Robb Wolf is the first person you should be checking out. He has a blog, a book and a podcast that are stop number one for people who follow this lifestyle. If you just want to jump in, just download his quick start guide right from his book resource page and get going.

If you read the quick start and you think “Yeah, this is cool.” Definitely pick up and read Robb’s book. It’s the go-to resource.

The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet

If Rob’s book tickles your inner nerd, also read his mentor, Loren Cordain’s, Book.

The Paleo Diet: Lose Weight and Get Healthy by Eating the Foods You Were Designed to Eat

If you REALLY like the technical / research side of this, you can see and read all the published research on the Paleo diet specifically (and all of the studies they reference).

Published Research

Melissa and Dallas Hartwig of Whole9 are the people that I go to for some of my harder questions, and I have taken their seminar twice (once to do the Whole30 and once to be able to teach it to others) and they have some great articles, ideas and support for people who want to go all the way with the Paleo / Anti-inflammatory diet. They have a wonderful new book “It starts with Food” that I have given to several people who have wanted to really get started and change their life.
It Starts With Food

Chrissy (Growing Up Paleo) and Sarah (Every Day Paleo) work for Robb at his Gym and have an excellent Podcast together that you should check out, along with their individual websites (as well as Sarah’s Book – Which is GREAT for an everyday, “I have Kids, too” point of view):

Mark’s Daily Apple (MDA) is not strictly Paleo (he likes to be called ‘Primal’) and while he doesn’t cut out all the same foods (He still allows for Grassfed Dairy), he has some great recipes and a ton of great info.

And finally, my wife recently finished her 30 day challenge , so it might be worthwhile to read her blog as she posts her thoughts and some great recipes as well.

    Hi – this looks like a good inspirational blog.
    I did notice though that you’ve used my How Do You Eat and Elephant drawing, but you forgot to attribute it to me and you forgot to provide a link back to my site
    Please add the attribution and link back to my site – thanks!

      Damn, thanks for pointing that out and I sincerely apologize. BlogJet must have stripped the ALT text on the image when I posted it, as I did added a hover attribute with your info. I just went in and added an explicit link back to your site from the image with title text and it appears to have solved the issue.

      Once again, it wasn’t my intent to use without attrib.
