With more than half a million copies sold, the first edition of Practical Paleo revolutionized the way we think about food and our bodies. Dubbed “The Paleo Bible” by readers, it explained how simply eating real, whole foods and avoiding processed, refined foods can improve our health—including reducing or even eliminating symptoms associated with common health disorders.

Now, this second edition has been updated to include new information, answer common questions, and make it even easier for you to customize your diet to meet your personal health goals.

What’s new?


• “Getting Started with Paleo” shows you step by step how to switch to the Paleo way of eating, whether you want to go all-in all at once or transition gradually over time. This chapter also includes a a more comprehensive explanation of the 4R Protocol, which walks you through removing harmful foods, repairing the gut, reinoculating with beneficial bacterial, and reintroducing foods that were previously eliminated.

• “Living the Paleo Lifestyle” offers tips and suggestions for navigating holidays and parties, talking to friends and family about Paleo, getting your kids involved in the kitchen, and much more.


• The new meal plans provide guidance for addressing common health concerns: Adrenal Health (stress management), Healthy Hormones (for both women and men), and Liver Detox Support.

• There’s also a new detailed guide to finding the meal plan that’s right for you, so you can get the health benefits you need with the fewest restrictions.


• These brand-new, mouthwatering recipes range from breakfast foods to family-friendly weeknight meals—many of which are one-pot or meal-in-one and use budget-friendly proteins.

• Recipes from the last edition have been updated based upon reader feedback over the years.

• There’s also a new guide to special ingredients and where to find them.

Plus, additions throughout the book explore new topics, such as when eating low-carb can actually be a problem, how stress affects the adrenal system, and why the government changed its mind about dietary cholesterol. And the organization has been extensively revised to make the valuable information on food and how it affects the body more user-friendly—and easier to apply to your own health needs.

Practical Paleo has proven to be the resource people reach for again and again for information on healthy living, delicious recipes, and guidance on changing your diet to improve your health.


  • Clear, concise, and Delicious!

    This book is all you really need to take the leap into following the Paleo protocol. Intelligently laid out and easy to understand -- she provides all the vital information brilliantly (from how to stock your cupboard to what your bowel movements should look like!), and then leads you into several different, goal specific, monthly meal plans (e.g. Athlete, Digestive Health, even Cancer Recovery) finishing with the delicious recipes (every one of them) for all occasions. Bravo!
  • Fantastic, easy read!

    Fantastic layout, illustrations and explanations abound in this informative guide to implementing the Paleo Diet. Section one covers digestion and what can go wrong plus how to fix it. Clear explanations and excellent graphics describe the implications and effects of digestion and its importance to robust health. Section two provides 30-day meal plans specific to numerous disorders, diseases and conditions you may be experiencing including a basic clean Paleo meal plan. Section three is chock full of delicious recipes to enjoy. Try Paleo pancakes and muffins, main courses and side dishes. The photographs look just like the recipes which is a real treat. I am implementing this plan with a preschooler and it has been a smooth transition. We are having great success with symptom elimination and greatly improved digestion. Thank you, Diane!
  • Frustrating

    I couldn't get past reading the sample portion of this book. I wanted to learn about Paleo but instead was reading about this woman's opinion (presented as proven scientific fact) about breast feeding and natural birth and how these 2 things will lead to longevity and vitality. Before making such claims I suggest using a footnote. You my dear are not a doctor or a scientist.
