The other day I got an email from a cousin about primal book recommendations for a beginner. She’s interested and wants to learn more. So what should she do? Or, perhaps, what should you do?
This is what I suggest. First, check out the Primal Blueprint Flyer PDF. It will help get you started as it’s a nice overview that you can print up and hang on your frig.
Second, I recommend checking out the Tops Links section of our site. There’s several excellent articles that will give you a good overview of what to eat, and why. The Primal Blueprint 101 is a nice catch-all that should answer most of your questions. It’s a page that’s full of links and answers, ideal for bookmarking. Is Sugar Toxic? and How to Keep Feces out of your Bloodstream are the two actual articles that I’d say are essential. Print up the first one if you can since it comes in a printer-friendly format.
As for a beginner book, I’d recommend either the Primal Blueprint or the Paleo Solution. The New Evolution Diet is awesome too, and for a quick and easy description of the science behind it all, you can’t do better than Why We Get Fat.
Also, I highly recommend checking out Robb Wolf’s outstanding podcast, the Paleo Solution.
That’s it! And, of course, you should subscribe to our blog. Simply subscribe, and if you feel inspired to take a Primal Challenge, then go for it! What’s the worst that can happen? Chances are, you’ll find yourself in such an improved state that you’ll never want to turn back.
What do you think? Any suggestions or beginner tips that I’m missing?
