I was pleasantly surprised that The Paleo Solution takes a holistic approach to health. While a large portion of the book is tedious due to some pretty detailed explanations of the metabolic processes that occur after eating certain foods (which gave me not very pleasant flashbacks to my college physiology class), he also focuses on managing sleep and stress.
While this may be a very crude summary, the book basically recommends the following:
- Stop eating all grains, including bread, pasta, rice, quinoa, beans, etc.
- Eat meat, vegetables, and fruits
- Minimize your alcohol intake
- Sleep in a completely dark room (Wolf cites one of my favorite books, Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, and Survival)
