Check out this short, sweet and informative video (see link below) that helps explain some paleo basics. Share it with your friends, family or anyone that you’d like to better understand why you eat paleo. To those of you that follow my blog and do not follow a paleo lifestyle, I strongly encourage you to watch it to grasp a better understanding of some basics. The video is under six minutes long, so it won’t take much of your time. Plus, it’s entertaining!

Help Your Friends Understand Paleo

Additionally, listed below is a great resource from The Paleo Mom for those interested in transitioning to a paleo lifestyle, but don’t know where to start. As stated on her blog, SarahBallantyne, Ph.D. (aka The Paleo Mom), “shares her biology, physiology and nutrition knowledge through informative posts that distill the science behind the paleo diet into approachable explanations.”

    I picked up Robb Wolf’s amusing yet informative (Paleo for dummies-esk) book: The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet. It was a quick read, but I wanted more details. Since I was diagnosed with a Candida Yeast overgrowth I ordered Donna Gates’ book: The Body Ecology Diet; recovering your health and rebuilding your immunity. More information, but soooo many rules.

    My favorite ends up being Primal Body, Primal Mind; beyond the paleo diet for total health and a longer life, by Nora T. Gedgaudas (one of Robb’s recommended reads by the way).

    Do you have any reading recommendations? I’d love to hear what you’ve found!

      I’ve heard of that book as well, but haven’t read it … yet. There’s so many books I want to and will read! Some others I recommend are It Starts With Food by Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, The Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson, The Paleo Diet and The Paleo Answer by Loren Cordain Ph.D., Wheat Belly by William Davis MD, etc. There are so many great resources out there and I could go on!
