From the Publisher
A breakthrough nutrition strategy for optimum athletic performance,
weight loss and peak health based on the Stone Age diet humans were
designed to eat.
Paleo-style diets are all 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
began with the publication of the book The Paleo Diet by
renowned scientist Loren Cordain, Ph.D., 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 has sold even better as a
backlist title-more than 20,000 units in both 2010 and 2012.
Now, the authors offer an updated and revised edition of The
Paleo Diet for Athletes specifically targeting runners,
triathletes, and other serious amateur athletes. Cordain and Friel
show that by using the foods our bodies were designed to
eat-protein, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and even some

dramatically improve the strength and cardiovascular efficiency.
The Paleo Diet for Athletes gives specific guidelines for
what to eat before, during and after a workout or competition along
with simple, tasty recipes packed with power and wholesome
