Are you convinced that we should eat like our predecessors? Then you should go Paleo but before you bite a piece of meat, check out our selection of the best Paleo diet books.

About the book

With the Autoimmune Paleo Cookbook as your guide, you’ll be inspired to take your health into your own hands–finding better health in the face of autoimmunity, while thoroughly enjoying every last bite!

What people say

What I love most is the simplicity in this book. It’s well designed and easy to read and the recipes are so simple that it doesn’t feel like you have to stick to the recipe exactly. Book offers variations and after getting used to foods as themselves, which will happen pretty soon b/c you’re taste buds change when you stop having sugar and carbs so often- sugar for some reason inhibits you’re taste buds and when you remove it, like bread and sugar and maple syrup, they reawaken and you’ll be able to even have plain yogurt or lettuce with nothing added – soon you’ll be able to make your own variations.

I’m sold on the author’s authority and argument. I’m all in–started following his advice and feel so much better. Down two pant sizes, brain fog is gone, and haven’t gotten any of the colds/bugs that the rest of my family has picked up this season. I’m looking at my food choices in a different light, and best of all, my internal medicine physician is on board with the program.

I was able to successfully make a dozen recipes from this book. They were delicious! I was desperate to find something to eat when I started the AIP diet. Thank goodness for this cookbook.

What people say

Absolutely love this book. I hired a nutritionist and am paying quite a bit of money for her expertise and advise. Found most of the things my nutritionist is teaching me in this book. Would recommend this book to ANYONE wanting to try Paleo, especially if you have an autoimmune disease, joint pain or leaky gut

So far the autoimmune eating plan has been a tremendous success for helping the constant pain I had in my feet. It’s also solved my acid reflux issues. All this in only 2 weeks. Truthfully, I’m shocked. I had tried lots things like no gluten, no caffiene, not much meat, low carb, low fat, lots of vegetables, no sugar etc. I don’t no what has made this work. Perhaps because I stopped eating nightshades and starting eating meat and butter? And, guess what, I am no longer hungry all the time. My whole outlook on life has improved.

#10. The Paleo Solution

About the book

Do you want to lose fat and stay young, all while avoiding cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and a host of other illnesses? The Paleo Solution incorporates the latest, cutting edge research from genetics, biochemistry and anthropology to help you look, feel and perform your best. Written by Robb Wolf, a research biochemist who traded in his lab coat and pocket protector for a whistle and a stopwatch to become one of the most sought after strength and conditioning coaches in the world.

What people say

This is the best diet book I have ever read, and I lost 44 pounds following it.

Excellent book regardless of whether you believe the debated paleo principle or not. The author states his case with clarity and humor. He also provides an extensive list of food choices to at least keep his eating program interesting. My experience from the Paleo Solution is that I lost 14 lbs. The first two weeks were challenging because getting off of white carbs wreaks a bit of havoc on your brain but the discomfort is worth it because you lose your craving for sweets. You also have to exercise at least three times a week but the Paleo approach does appear to increase energy levels as your body learns to burn fat more efficiently.
