Reader Reviews

"Worth It"

Rating: 5 stars
The author briefly details the history of wheat and grains. He reminds the reader that many of the foods we eat are so new and so toxic that the human body was not meant to digest them. He must be right, because the moment I stopped eating wheat, my asthma symptoms diminished the tendency to get the flu decreased.

This diet is the least complicated of all the ones out there now. For those who prefer simple guidelines over complicated measuring (he has list of permanent no-no's) this book is good.

"Neanderthin Diet: the Big Picture"

Rating: 5 stars
I became interested in the Paleolithic Diet after starting Atkins. I lost weight quickly and easily by cutting carbohydrates. There really was something to this low-carb stuff!

I began reading other diet books like Protein Power and scoured the Internet. There were a lot of online references to something called the Paleolithic Diet. One book was mentioned time and time again, Neanderthin, by Ray Audette.

I got ahold of the new edition and became a convert. The book tells that while our diet has changed since the advent of agriculture, our genes have not had time to adapt. We still have the old hunter-gatherer DNA. The grains, refined sugars and carbohydrates in our diet today are making us sick. Our bodies can't handle this new stuff.

The book tells you what foods to eat and what to avoid. Well written with an extensive bibliography.

Very highly recommended. The book has changed my life.

"What's Old is New, and Works!"

Rating: 5 stars
After seeing Ray Audette on 48 Hours I stepped on the scale and found myself at 180 lbs., 5 lbs. more than I had ever weighed. At 43 I was looking my age and felt it. The Neanderthin approach appealed to me. It made good, logical sense. I got the book and started on January 20th. My weight has steadily gone down yet I have not gone hungry nor felt deprived. The amazing side effect is that my energy level has gone through the roof. I have been on hyperdrive, feeling great and just plain happier with life! After ten weeks on this diet I have lost 13 lbs and now am just 2 lbs. over my college weight. At this rate I will be back to my high school weight in another ten weeks. I feel good enough to get back to pumping iron to help things along. Since my wife was doing the cooking she has been on it too and has lost 15 lbs. This is a plan I can and will stick with. It's so easy! The results are so good I can't imagine going back to my old eating habits. I just don't want many of the foods I subsisted on before. I would urge anyone to get this book and give it a try. Looking better and feeling better are a great way to go through life.
