My Favorite Books
The Paleo Solution– Another book that I have read. Robb Wolf is another great author who speaks about paleo. He basically says give it 30 days and see what happens. He too does uses background and research to back up his findings.
The Primal Blueprint– This was the very first paleo book I read. It really opened my eyes and quite frankly scared me. Mark Sisson does a fantastic job of using research and background to explain in a way that I could understand his reasoning. After reading this book, I started paleo.
It Starts with Food– Dallas and Melissa Hartwig are the reason why I have conquered Whole 30 not once but twice. I never EVER in a million years thought I could give up sugar for 30 days. But, I am proud to say that I did!! This book along with my experience inspired me to start a whole 30 group and face book page. I have 110 members on my face book page. This is just proof that I enjoy helping others become healthy:)
