Asserting that “modern life causes diabetes, autoimmunity, cancer, neurodegeneration, and infertility,” the first-time author Wolf, a former student of The Paleo Diet’s Lauren Cordain, takes on grains, carbs, vegetarians, misinformation, and other aspects of modern life with a casual, conversational tone (“Keep your poop where it belongs”) that makes even topics like the components of total cholesterol engaging. Wolf’s scientific background allows him to fully explain hormones, fats, and the digestive process, and helps him put the fundamentals of evolutionary biology into accessible context. He argues that, in addition to dietary changes, a focus on the quality and duration of sleep and a fitness routine is needed, and photographs accompanied by detailed instructions guide readers through simple exercises. Recognizing the time crunch of modern life, Wolf’s program is created to require minimum time and expense. While a grain-free, dairy-free diet may sound difficult to implement, he suggests a commitment-light 30-day trial and provides a four-week menu with simple recipes like Slow Cooker Pork Loin, Chicken Alfredo, and Pizza with a nut-based crust. An extensive list of references, primarily from peer-reviewed journals, lends credence to an intriguing argument.
9. Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Achieving Your Ideal Weight by Peter J. D’Adamo and Catherine Whitney
If you’ve ever wondered why the latest fad diet doesn’t work for you… well, there are lots of reasons, mostly the fact that it’s a fad diet. But it could also be that you’re the wrong blood type for the kinds of foods the diet recommends. Peter D’Adamo makes a persuasive argument that your blood type is an evolutionary marker that tells you which foods you’ll process best, and which will be useless calories. He covers the entire range for each of the four blood types, from entrées to condiments and seasonings, and also makes type-specific exercise and lifestyle recommendations.
