Would anyone who has had experience with the Paleo Diet please recommend what websites are the most informative as well as books? There are a number of books out there which get mixed reviews. It would help me a lot to narrow my search to see if this diet is right for me. Also, if there is a Paleo cookbook that you have found please share.

Thanks.

I've been eating a mostly Paleo way for about 3 weeks. I like it and find it healthier than my previous, mostly healthy, way of eating. I've also adjusted my workout routine. I love Art De Vany's approach: "The New Evolutionary Diet" and www.arthurdevany.com. I also bought The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain.

In addition to mc1035's suggestions, I'd add in:

Robb Wolf who wrote The Paleo Solution
Mark Sisson who wrote The Primal Blueprint

The Paleo Solution is the book I'd recommend but it takes a very jovial tone; I've seen a number of reviews that don't appreciate that. The nice thing is that both websites provide the crux of their recommendations for free so that should help you decide about the diet without having to buy anything.

I guess there's really no pleasing some people. Laughing (Source: http://bit.ly/ekORk0)

you may have found them already as healsdata suggested Mark Sissons Daily Apple, but it has a couple of free user recipe books available to download on the website

I follow Dr. Kurt Harris' recommendations.

He explains the science behind those recommendations.

Dr. Emily Deans' blog, Evolutionary Psychiatry, is excellent.

Dr. Peter Dobromylskyj's blog, Hyperlipid, is brilliant, funny and also at the top of my list.

Dr. Deans and Dr. Harris have links to sites and blogs, of other like-minded scientists, and those who eat to establish the evolutionary metabolic milieu. Dr. Harris also has a recommended book list, and links to sites for reading research material.

Dr. Uffe Ravnskov's, The Cholesterol Myths, are also most worthwhile reading.

Best wishes to all. Smile

I have been doing a paleo lifestyle since November last year, Matt Emery's site http://www.cavemanpower.com/ is also another great resource for information and such about the paleo lifestyle. I will agree the lifestyle works for everyone I have talked to that has tried it.

I just started Primal Blueprint a few weeks ago and have found it easy to follow... good food and I am never hungry. I was basically doing low carb anyway, but I like not having to count my carbs and I like the fact it isn't as rigid a program as some of the others.

Read their blogs mentions in the posts above. Mike's Daily Apple has a great forum to read posts in also.

Wish you luck.

Any Porridge suggestions?
Yes Steel cut oats. They take longer to cook but are so worth it! Add a tablespoon of peanut butter and some berries for a protein boost and great flavour. You can also add a table spoon of maple syrup ...
