Paleo-style diets are all of the rage as fitness enthusiasts, including the booming nation of CrossFitters, have adopted high-protein, low-processed-food diets to fuel their exercise. It all started with the publication of the book “The Paleo Diet” by renowned scientist Loren Cordain, PhD, who presented a breakthrough plan for weight loss and disease prevention without dieting or exercising. In 2005, Dr. Cordain joined with endurance coach Joe Friel to write “The Paleo Diet for Athletes”. It sold 8,000 copies that first year, but it surely has sold even better as a backlist title – more than 20,000 units in both 2010 and 2012. Now, the authors offer an up to date and revised edition of “The Paleo Diet for Athletes”, specifically targeting runners, triathletes, and other serious amateur athletes. Cordain and Friel show that by the use of the foods our bodies were designed to eat – protein, vegetables and fruit, healthy fats, and even some saturated fats – any individual can achieve total-body fitness and dramatically strengthen the strength and cardiovascular efficiency.”The Paleo Diet for Athletes” gives specific guidelines for what to eat before, all the way through and after a workout or competition together with simple, tasty recipes packed with power and wholesome ingredients.
