Yeah, I did read the Paleo Solution. I'm glad there is a better alternative out there. Thanks for the clarification!

Re: What programing should I follow?
I don't know that I'd say Cordain's books are any better than Wolf's...the initial one wasn't geared towards athletes at all, and "Paleo Diet for Athletes" is geared towards endurance athletes so it's not really applicable to people trying to get stronger and more powerful. I'm still not clear on exactly what you didn't like about Wolf's book, I've never had any complaints from people I've recommended it to.

Not trying to start anything here, as I think this may be a matter of taste.

My dislike to Wolf's book is in his writing. I think he spends 70% of the book yelling at the reader to prove himself and show that he is worth something. I lost count of how many times I read the words "diabetes, cancer,... " in that book. It's sounds like a little kid without good arguments who needs to yell louder big names to call people's attention.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, and not that I would do a better job myself or anything. It's just not what I was looking for when I bought the book. I really liked Nancy Clark's guidebook to sports nutrition and the systematic way in which she wrote that book. Showing numbers, evidence without any yelling. The reader is not underestimated. We can draw our conclusions. I don't need any yelling. Specially when it doesn't even make any sense.

Makes sense? It really is just a matter of taste.
