Book Review: Primal Body, Primal Mind
Interesting things I took from the book:
- Heart and brain run 25% more efficient on Ketone
- Red Blood Cells are the only thing in your body that need glucose, which your body can already make
- High Blood Sugar levels lead to glycation which causes your to AGE faster, both mentally and physical
The rest of the book had a similar theme to other Paleo/ Weston A. Price information.
- Fat and cholesterol are good, and needed
- Our ancestors always look for the most nutrient dense food (fat, protein)
- Soy is not good
- Nutrition has a huge impact on mental and emotional health
- Stay away from sugar and high starch foods
Gedgaudas also put a some great information in the book about supplements.
All in all a great read.
