Paleo Reading

What would you all recommend as far as a book to read to learn about Paleo? Is the main book "the Paleo Diet" one I should go for or maybe the one that is for Athletes? I'm zoning right now cause it's easier but from what I understand of Paleo thus far, one doesn't have to figure anything, rather just eat until no longer hungry.

The harder part will be getting my wife on board. She is one of those that loves her pasta and grains because she has the metabolism of a furnace and probably always will. It's hard enough to get her not to complain about my zoning as it requires me to add or subract things from the foods she makes and it costs money. Not sure if Paleo will relieve any of that. Will either of these books present a case that might make her change her mind based on the sciecne and health benefits? If not, zoning is working well enough now but I want the best option to be healthy. I'm sure there are posts on this that I didn't have the time to search out so please link them if you know of them. Thanks!

So I looked at the Clan of the Cave Bear and it looked like it was just a fictional story set in the ice age, I believe. Is it secretly about the Paleo Diet? A little confused. I had been to the other site but hadn't yet looked through all the links extensively. Thanks

Re: Paleo Reading

The Paleo Diet for Athletes is an awesome book. Can't go wrong for 10 bux.

Re: Paleo Reading

It's not really for athletes, it's for people who compete in long distance monstructural activities.

Re: Paleo Reading

As far as the wifey, hard to beat whatever is working for her. I might rent the movie "Food, Inc." instead. Probably more helpful and easier to get her to see that with you.

Unless you are a long distance runner (what Jamie said) don't get it. Get "The Paleo Diet" instead, it's much better.

Re: Paleo Reading

Of course, the Paleo Diet by Cordain is a must read but I'd also recommend Neaderthin by Ray Audette. Cuts right to the chase.
