Why You Should Buy the Book

Perfect Health Diet shows you how to optimize your diet and lifestyle to eliminate the causes of disease for a lifetime of great health.

The Perfect Health Diet is an ancestral (Paleo, Primal) diet that synthesizes insights from evolutionary biology and the dietary and nutritional literature to offer an innovative, yet ancestral, view of the optimal human diet.

As our Reader Results show, Perfect Health Dieters have experienced greatly improved health including cures of chronic diseases, permanent weight normalization without hunger or cravings, and improved energy, strength, and mood.

The food is delicious – it resembles gourmet cuisines such as French, Thai, and Chinese. There’s good reason for a healthy diet to be tasty: our brains evolved to make us healthy, so the foods that make us happiest are also the ones that make us healthy. The diet is also less restrictive than other Paleo/Primal diets, making it easier to fit into modern life.

Perfect Health Diet explains the science of good health clearly and comprehensively. If you enjoy science, or want to know the reasons why ancestral diets work and modern diets make us obese and sick, you’ll love the insight you gain as you see many lines of evidence lead to the same conclusions.

In short, if you would like:

  • Better health
  • Delicious and satisfying food
  • Improved understanding of the science of diet and health

then this is the book for you.

  3. Hello,

    I read your book once and now I am reading it the second time. I wonder why your book was not translated into other languages. My english is pretty good, but all the special vocabulary concerning diseases, food, and human organs is quite tough.

    Yours sincerely,
    Doc Evil

  4. I purchased your audiobook on Audible.com. It references a PDF with tables and information however it was not included on the Audible site. Where can I get a hold of that?
    Thanks

  6. Hai I am from india and I need this clear for life acne book.so could you please tell me the cheaper way to buy this…… thank you

  7. Hi Paul, Any chance your book will be available in any other languages? Polish perhaps?

  8. Hello Paul, I had my lipids checked recently since following PHD for 2 months & my cholesterol (HDL 66, LDL 160, VLDL 8) & trigycerides (42) were in the ranges given in your book & of course the Dr recommended statins which is crazy. He said my Lipoprotein (a) is 282 & said that indicates a high risk of heart disease. Do I have anything to be worried about with high Lipoprotein (a), & if so could you please tell me how to lower it?

    Thank you so much.

    • Hi Henry,

      Lp(a) is largely genetic and is not easily altered, see e.g. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10461709. Your numbers actually signify extremely low cardiovascular risk. I would focus on bringing LDL down toward 130 by eating more carbs, supplementing a low dose of iodine, and addressing any subclinical hypothyroidism.

      If you want to please your doctor, alcohol lowers Lp(a), so you could drink more.

      • Hello Paul, I’ve been meaning to say thank you, and that I was tickled to get your response. I’ve been enjoying my evening beer or two that much more – for the health benefits of course. 😉

        • Hi Paul.

          My understanding is that high Lp(a) is a very strong risk factor for heart disease independent of other lipid values and other factors. I have had my Lp(a) measured twice: once 18 months ago and it was 220, and once last week and it was 140. Normal value is <50, preferably <30. I have a family history of stroke and heart disease, including early death from heart attack.

          Everything I read online about very elevated Lp(a) terrifies me, but I feel powerless to change anything. Can you help me understand the true implications of very elevated Lp(a)? I don't know what to do with this information.

          I follow PHD, have no metabolic disease, have TC 195, HDL 60, Trigs 75, LDL 120 and pattern A.

          The only difference I can isolate between the two Lp(a) measurements (that might explain the decrease) is that just prior to the most recent test I finished a round of SIBO treatment (herbal abx) and had been taking DIM to reduce excess estrogen. At the time of the first Lp(a) test, I had undiagnosed SIBO.

          My functional med doc prescribed high dose (500-1000mg/day) niacin as treatment but I am reluctant due to your info on niacin drawbacks. Would love your thoughts.

          Thank you!
          Bella

  9. I’d like to sell these books to my patients. Is there a way I can get them wholesale?

  10. Hi Paul,

    I agree with Tom Conant: if I buy the audible.com version, how can we access the pdf’s? Obviously an audio book cannot contain any documents.

    Cheers!

    Diego

  11. What different in the latest version?

    • Hi Liz,

      The 2012 Scribner/Scribe editions radically updated the 2010 YinYang Press edition, doubling the length and revising the material substantially. It was almost a new book. Then in 2013 in the US there was a paperback release with some extra recipes, otherwise no significant changes.

  12. Not sure if my question was sent as I had an error a come up.
    I have just received my copy of your book from Amazon UK. Do I understand that you have an updated edition coming out? In which case I shall fell quite aggrieved!!!

  13. Hi Paul,
    Is the Hungarian translation based on the first edition or the revised 2012 edition of your book?

  14. Hi Paul,

    Is it about time you do an update to the book? I think there is enough new materials that you have written in the website that can make a nice update to the book. I’m especially looking for anymore research you may have gathered with regards to gut bacteria and how they impact our bodies.

    • Hi Allen,

      No, I think the current version of the book is very solid. We did a lot of blogging between 2010 and 2012 and that allowed us to make substantial revisions in the 2012 edition, which we’re still very happy with.

      We’ll have a cookbook coming out later this year and probably a gastronomy book the following year, those will have new material that complements the existing book. Those could have some gut bacteria related material that you’re seeking.

      If we did do a revision to the Scribner book, it would probably be after we’ve written a lifestyle book, then we could remove the lifestyle material in Perfect Health Diet and free up space for diet/nutrition topics. But I think we would need years to get everything together to justify that.

      Best, Paul

  15. Hello, I was wondering what the difference is between the US an UK version of the book. Thank you.

  16. I purchased the PHD mp3 book about a year ago from Amazon.com. I just now got around to listening to it and I got to the end of the first disk to find that the second disk is a completely different book! Amazon.com can’t refund me because it’s been a year, so I’m wondering if there’s something you can do? I know it’s not your fault, but I’d happily take a burnt CD in the mail. The second disk is all I need. Stopping in the middle of a book is torture!

  17. Hi,
    I read your book twice already and am in almost physical pain now when I see my parents eat the way they eat. Given the fact that we are from Germany and their understanding of the English language is more or less non-existent, I wonder if you have taken steps to make the book available in German so that I can make them read it 🙂
    Thanks a lot in advance for your answer,
    Falk

    • Hi Falk, We would love nothing more than to get a German edition, but no German publishers have bitten yet. By the way, I will be speaking in Berlin on July 25 at the first German Paleo convention.

      • Paul, your progress spreading word has been phenomenal — may it continue until all the “advice” the public has gotten from nutrition “experts” is erased from memory.

        Ahaltenden Erfolg

        Falk, if the above doesn’t say “Continued success,” blame Google translator. 😕

  18. Hi Paul,
    I can no longer find the UK edition of your book available to buy. Is it out of print? Only the kindle version, Australian version or various other US versions. How can I get hold of a UK one please?
    Thanks

  19. Thanks Paul. I have just checked ISBN 1922070211 and it comes up with the Australian version: http://www.amazon.co.uk/books/dp/1922070211/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1438694456&sr=1-1&keywords=1922070211
    So I still can’t find how to find the UK book version anymore.

  20. Looks like a great read to have around! I have been reading Michael Galitzer’s Outstanding Heath and it’s been a great asset to me! oustandinghealthbook.com is his book site, he’s great on energy and that is so important!

  21. Hi,
    Just to let you know I asked http://www.evolutionorganics.co.uk/books
    to stock your book 🙂 Hope that’s OK.
    They said they could if they can get it wholesale.

  24. Hi Paul, can I ask how the Australian edition of your book is different? Am considering whether it’s worth paying a bit more for than the US edition. Thanks

    • Hi Helene,

      It’s almost identical, but (a) units are SI (metric) instead of English, and (b) a few dozen illustrative examples and statistics in the book have been localized to Australia rather than the US (sentences like “the obesity rate has risen from X to Y in Z”).

      Also, the 2013 US paperback edition has some capsule recipes that were added. The Australian edition is based on the US hardcover (2012) edition.

      Best, Paul

  25. Hi – I’m a functional medicine doctor and would like to buy your book for my patients. Is it available at wholesale/bulk? If so will you please send me information?
