Oh, but before I go. In basic-speak, here is the pretext of what I will be trying to take away from this book. One: far, far fewer glutens and carbs. I would love to say, like she wants you to, that I will give them all up, but it is a hard call. May try a de-tox for a couple of weeks when we get back from Thailand. (I'll warn you when to stay away.) See if that helps. The theory is that if you can get rid of all the glutens and sugar-producers, then your cells derive energy from the healthy fats you replace them with. Healthy fats in the right amounts, apparently, are a much healthier and life sustaining energy source. They help the guiding hormone leptin to control all the systems in your body for a better feeling, longer living body, and mind. Two: grass fed meats, wild caught fish and grass fed butter. No point giving up carbs only to put them back in through animals that eat carbs. Theoretically these types of products will be much healthier than mass produced, getting-a-consumer-focused animal products. Three: supplementing, with highest quality products, the nutrients that are missing from produce grown in depleted soils. Four (and by far the favourite idea): short bursts only of anaerobic exercise. Nora tells me that too much exercise is actually not good for you, and too much aerobic exercise is damaging to muscle. You have to think like a caveman. Eat like a caveman, don't eat what wouldn't have been around when the caveman was (like MacDonalds and high fructose corn syrup—and don't let me even start on the latter), and exercise like a caveman (walk everywhere and occasionally run like hell to get away from a mammoth, or drag the full carcass of the mastodon you just clubbed back to the cave). Simple theories. Let's see how we go. Paleo-prattler out!
Who wore it better?
