Combining modern genetic science and evolutionary biology, The Primal Blueprint dispels a number of the myths that modern medicine and conventional wisdom have come to accept as fact. Author Mark Sisson takes the reader on a fascinating journey through human evolution, comparing the life and robust health of our hunter-gatherer ancestors with a day in the life of a modern family - exposing potential health issues that arise from trying to do the right things living in the 21st century. Sisson offers a solution in 10 empowering "Blueprint Lifestyle Laws" that can help us reprogram our genes away from disease and pain towards a direction of effortless weight loss, vibrant health and boundless energy. The reader learns how the right high-fat diet can actually help one lose weight; how popular low-fat, grain-based diets might trigger illness, disease, and lifelong weight gain; why doing too much cardio exercise might actually suppress the immune system and how some of today's most common medications might make a health condition even worse. The consummate book on "Paleo" or "Primal"

Love Mark's approach and the evolutionary view. It just makes sense. I've used these strategies with family, friends and clients. It works - plain and simple

It is a user-friendly introductory guide to Paleo but not overwhelmingly steeped with scientific data to support his assertions – for that refer to his blog and new podcast. I have been following his blog, Mark’s Daily Apple, for over a year now but I still find myself referring back to the book as a reference guide from time to time.

Theories are explained clearly and in plain English. I have followed the Primal/Paleo diet for 3 years now and it was interesting to get a deeper understanding of the evolutionary process. Great book and highly recommend.
