Your Personal Paleo Code – A Review

This review is a little late, but no less enthusiastic for its tardiness, so let me just cut to the chase.  Chris Kresser‘s book, Your Personal Paleo Code, is fantastic!  We had him on our podcast already, so please note that I absolutely did not feel any obligation to write this review.  I am writing it because I believe this book has the potential to help you in big ways.

I have to admit, when I heard Chris was writing a book, I thought to myself, “Chris is amazing, but what is he going to fill a whole book with that hasn’t been said already?”  My skepticism turned out to be completely unnecessary.  We desperately needed this book!

What makes Chris’ book so excellent is the fact that he has created a system that allows the reader to assess their own situation and customize their paleo game plan.  One of my major complaints about the paleo world of late is that “The Paleo Diet” is set into stone as a set of rules – don’t eat this, do eat that, miracles will happen – and it’s a crock of bull.  So many people are left frustrated when they don’t get the results they see in other people because there will never be such a thing as a one-size-fits-all path to health for everyone.  We all have different genetics, histories, and confounding variables in our lifestyles.  The paleo community at large is happy to help you believe that “The Paleo Diet” will work for you as is, and that anything that can be forcefully crammed into the “rules” of paleo is fair game for everyone.  This is horribly wrong.  Chris Kresser understands that, maybe better than anyone.

The Paleo Coach
“The Paleo Coach is not just another Paleo book—it’s a priceless tool that is absolutely essential for anyone striving to live the best life possible. The insight, advice, and lessons in this book could come only from someone like Jason, who has spent serious time deep in the trenches of the health-and-fitness industry. With his hands-on experience, understanding, and innumerable success stories, Jason reveals what it takes to look beyond the hype and focus on what really matters: your own personal path to health. Everyone should have a coach, and now everyone can. The Paleo Coach will change your life. Guaranteed.”—Sarah Fragoso, author of the national bestseller Everyday Paleo

“Everyone needs a coach. Yes, everyone! When your car is broken, you take it to a ‘car coach’ (aka mechanic). If your plumbing is backed up, you call a ‘pipe coach’ (some people call them plumbers). Whom do you go to if you want to improve how you look, feel, and perform? A Paleo coach. Like Jason Seib. In the same way that mechanics are experts in what ails cars (and, most important, how to fix those cars), Jason is an expert in all things nutrition and strength-and-conditioning. He has learned his craft through years of research, trial, error, and helping people. Whether your goal is weight loss, being a top-level athlete, or just regaining enough youthful vigor to chase the kids or grandkids, I’d like to introduce you to the man who will help you meet your goals: Meet your new Paleo coach, Jason Seib.”—Robb Wolf, author of the New York Times bestseller The Paleo Solution

“Let Jason Seib be the Paleo coach in your life to help you cut to the chase and get to the meat of the matter about becoming as optimally healthy as you can possibly be! His nuanced understanding of how to live like our hunter-gatherer ancestors in today’s world of iPads, the Internet, and American Idol is sorely needed. Other Paleo books may promise to help you lose X amount of weight in two weeks, but The Paleo Coach offers you much, much more. Jason realizes that it takes a dedicated commitment to implement a lifestyle change and homes in on key principles aimed at delivering big changes in your weight, health, and outlook on life.”—Jimmy Moore, LivinÆ La Vida Low-Carb Blog and Podcast
