What RPD books to read for a beginner?
« on: March 24, 2014, 01:02:34 am »
I am always stumped when I am trying to explain my RPD habits. I tend to follow what Aajonus says but I am wondering what books you would suggest for a newbee.

BTW this is not a thread about AV. I know his weaknesses and strengths.
Cheers
Al

I love Primal Body Primal Mind. It is not a Raw Paleo Diet book, but Paleo Diet. I think it is easier for newbees to grasp benefits of regular Paleo diet and then only educate them on harm of heating, by giving them link to studies: http://www.rawpaleodiet.com/articles/dangers-of-cooked-foods-an-extensive-collection-of-on-and-offsite-articles/

I don't know of any books that would work as Raw Paleo books, but there are a few I'd recommend as good ancestral health books more generally. I wrote a review on my website extolling the virtues of Christopher Clark's Nutritional Grail, and also like Denise Minger's Death by Food Pyramid and will write a review of her book soon. Nora Gedgaudas' book is decent, although now that these other two books have come out I'd recommend either of them over Primal Body, Primal Mind as they're not so preachy and come across as more level-headed and more objective.

I think those are great recommendations and would also recommend cooked paleo resources as well.  I don't think there is anything wrong with transitioning with properly cooked or fermented veggies and fermented/aged dairy, in addition to slow/low cooked and raw meats and raw fats, unless the person is extremely ill and its been demonstrated that they are intolerant to those foods or intolerant to slow cooking methods.   First and foremost people should be concerned with eliminating grains and allergens from the diet, and focusing on the nutrient density of foods.  Raw fats and proteins being at the top of the list.  I think its important that care is still taken in sourcing all foods, properly aging and storing of all food and definitely eating the whole animal, regardless if that means making broths or slow cooking or preparing offal to improve palatability.  People should not be afraid to experiment within some guidelines that are informed by these sources, and then create their own dietary habits informed by their individual response.
