But many get ravaged by it, and there are clear, obvious, and very basic physiological reasons for it.
Obvious signs that the Paleo Diet is inappropriate for you would be cold hands and feet, frequent urination, nighttime urination or night sweats, sleep problems - particularly waking up between 3-4 am, anxiety or panic attacks, muscle cramps, irritability, lack of energy, delayed stomach emptying, constipation, body odor, breath odor, dark circles under your eyes, appearance of allergies or autoimmune disease, loss of sex drive, sexual function, or menstruation, dry skin, poor exercise performance and recovery, migraines, blurred vision, and countless others.
If you suffer from these issues and you're on a Paleo Diet, you better make some adjustments!
12 Paleo Myths: Eat Better than a Caveman goes into great detail about the physiology behind how the Paleo Diet, particularly one that is heavy in meat and fat and low in carbohydrates, affects us as human beings. For some, those affects might be highly favorable. But for others it's like throwing gasoline on a fire.
The book also includes a discussion of some of the most basic tenets of Paleo that are illogical or scientifically wrong, such as the belief that carbohydrate consumption causes blood sugar or insulin levels to become too high, or the belief that we are genetically identical to our Paleolithic forebears.
And of course, it includes valuable information on how to overcome and reverse some of the problems you may have incurred or ceased to improve with your adherence to this latest peculiar, sciencey-sounding fad.
But that's not all! This audiobook also includes 60+ pages of stories of people who had miserable results trying to follow a Paleo diet - from insomnia and panic attacks to loss of menstruation and boner kill.
