The Modern, No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo is finally here!

And so, what’s it all about, this book, hey?

I’ll let some others (you may have heard of them) tell the story…

“Alison cuts through all the extraneous language to focus in on what really matters: concrete steps one can take to go paleo and make it work in a modern world full of tempting junk food, skeptical family members, picky children, life and work-related stress, holiday treats, household budgets, and poor sleep habits. The Modern, No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo is one of the best tools I’ve seen yet to get you started and keep you motivated throughout your paleo journey.” —Mark Sisson

Are you struggling to sustain a paleo lifestyle change?

Or not sure how to start? Or perhaps those around you are resistant and you’re feeling undermined and unsure. Many people get derailed as they attempt to incorporate paleo principles into their everyday life. They so want to make an enduring success of paleo but they don’t know how to change. The Modern, No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo provides practical tools to ease the transition to a full-on paleo life. Each chapter includes strategies, tips and checklists to identify the actions to power you on your paleo journey and create sustainable change. This book is the “how of paleo”.

Based on real-life experience

“The thing that amazes me most about Alison is she is a true student of paleo and the lifestyle that defines it. She is constantly picking the brains of the best and the brightest to find out what they do, why it works and how that information can be dispensed to those who need it most. This book is a collection of everything she has discovered with one slight twist. It’s real and it’s practical so people know what they are getting into, and what they need to do to have the success they truly deserve.” —Dean Dwyer

This book directly resulted from a question I asked on my Facebook page – “What are you struggling with right now?” The longing and the frustration that emanated from the replies caused me to think of the times I had felt that way and I considered how I’d got over the hump, drawing on my experience of years as a productivity geek, mom, counselor and finally a paleo advocate.

I do the school run, worry over bills being paid, volunteer my time. I get my kids to do their chores, ferry them to and fro (and back again), keep my employers happy. I’ve used food when I’m happy, when I’m sad, to give me energy, to calm me down. I’m no different from anyone else and I’ve had to fight my food demons many times. But I’m mostly through the curve (you’ll learn about the curve in the book) and I’ve learned a lot on my way to get to this point. And I share what I’ve learned in the book. Go to Amazon and “Look Inside” to read “My Story”.

Plain speaking, no jargon, no-nonsense

This is a straightforward approach to the paleo concept that will help you look, feel and perform your best.” Robb Wolf

I designed this book to be instructional, inspirational, a resource for paleo information and with a dose of self-help because no-one can do this for you. I hope you will read through it, highlight important points, write in the notes pages, then keep it close by you. Pull it out at those times when you need ideas or new input, refer to it often, make it your handbook and your manual for living paleo in a non-paleo world.

I wrote it for those new to paleo and those who have embarked on the path but are hitting some bumps and potholes along the way. There is something for everyone, both new and experienced at living the paleo lifestyle, but don’t take my word for it:

“For just one moment, imagine your favorite teacher: the one who was smart, funny, always encouraged you, and made sure you were successful in whatever you did. This is Alison Golden. Her conversational tone puts you at ease – even if you made a mistake (or three) on this paleo journey. The Modern, No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo is about more than just “eating paleo”. It is a how-to guide in making this a lifestyle. I have been on this journey for two years and yet picked up some great information from this book. This is a great read for anyone from beginner to long-timer.” —Orleatha Smith

The “how of paleo”

“Alison offers a unique and much-needed tool with The Modern, No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo. Having a template to help us live a paleo lifestyle in modern times is necessary as we navigate through our chaotic, stress-filled, and fast-paced world. At every corner turned, we are faced with food temptations, peer pressures, and uncertainties and despite our better intentions, it can be difficult to stay on track with the paleo plan. Fortunately, Alison puts it all in perspective and gives us the tools to stay focused on what matters most; our health!” —Sarah Fragoso

Other books will tell you why you should be paleo and what that entails. This book tells you how to do it. Living paleo in a non-paleo world isn’t just about knowing what you should eat and do, and why. It is clear that we need to learn skills and strategies for making our resolutions stick until they become automatic. We need to learn how to do it and there is no other paleo book showing you how. Go to Amazon and “Look Inside” to view the Table of Contents.

“I can hold your hand in the kitchen, but Alison’s the one who’ll keep you on the paleo straight-and-narrow. Her book offers smart strategies and actionable plans to kick start a new, healthy lifestyle – and stick to it.”—Michelle Tam, Nom Nom Paleo
