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.

  1. Hi Paul, I’m confused as which is the last version of the book on Amazon. I bought the book “paperback December 2013” and I thought that was the last version, but it includes the Iodine recommendation of 1000mcg per day, so i assume is the previous one?

    thank you

    • Hi Gianluca,

      I have checked my paperback version dated from December 2013, with ISBN 978-1-4516-9915-9, and on page 293 it says “[W]e recommend supplementing with 225 micrograms of iodine on days when seafood is not consumed”. I believe this is the last version. For the corresponding ebook, the ISBN is 978-1-4516-9916-6. Higher amounts of iodine are still mentioned in previous pages because they have therapeutic potential in several conditions, but I think Paul decided not to recommend such intakes for general population as a few things could go wrong (e.g., low levels of selenium) and then the recommendation would backfire.

      The hardcover version is not updated and it does recommend starting with 225 mcg per day and then doubling it each month until you reach 1 mg (1,000 mcg), or more if convenient.

      Best,
      Hector

      • P. S. Anyways it is always better to check the blog for these things, as recommendations may have shifted.

        When I said Paul, I meant Paul and Shou-Ching.

          thanks for replying. On page 293 I see the same exact recommendation on the Iodine, but on page 281, at the beginning of chapter 30, it does say to start with 225mg working up to 1mg per day, and I don’t see the picture with the ice-cream cup on the back either

          • Hi Gianluca,

            They must have forgotten to update that line, or that might be intended to be circunstancial advice, “work up to 1 mg [if necessary or therapeutic]”.

            I just bought a book to give as a gift, and Amazon doesn’t list any more newer edition than December 2013. Also, if you use http://www.bookfinder.com, which is messy but efficient at finding many editions, you will get the same result.

            The ice-cream in the back corresponds to the jacket to the hardcover edition–which doesn’t include the expanded chapter, nor the correction of errata, nor the few small updates.

            Best,
            Hector
