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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good place to start This book is a good introduction to the paleo diet and the reasons for it. If you have a specific health concern, it is addressed well. But if you already have a firm background in nutrition from a paleo perspective, this book is a bit stale and repetitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great intro to paleo book! I bought this book when I first considered the paleo diet. This book covered the diet well and has some great recipes. I love that she gave alternatives for mayo, ketchup, dressings, etc so I didn't feel like I was depriving myself. Definitely recommend this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book! Super detailed book! Wealth of information! Visually great quick guides! Nice pictures. Well planned meal plans for different issues or requirements like adrenal health, athletic performance, autoimmune conditions, blood sugar regulation etc. Wide range of recipes like your usual breakfast, lunch and dinner, sides, snacks and sweets like muffins, gummies, truffles and chips to basics like ketchup, dressings, mayo etc. Loved the different spice blends recipes and the nutty bacon bark. A well done book I bet you will love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paleo cookbook I would recommend this cookbook for paleo and non-paleo aficionados alike. The photography is gorgeous, and having made every recipe at least once (and most of them over and over and over again), I can attest that the recipes are straightforward and DELICIOUS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginners I bought this book when I decided to try paleo in hopes of finding out which grains I was sensitive to (this was my motivation and it worked really well for me). This book educated me on paleo and provided great tips and recipes. Although I wish it had more recipes in it. However the other information was invaluable as a beginner.
