Giving It A Try-Makes Sense!, September 7, 2000
Reviewer: Lesley Graff-Vincent from United States
I received the NeanderThin book the other day and have spent all my free moments reading it. WONDERFUL! It makes sense to me and seems sensible and "on target". I have struggled to lose a bit of weight (5-10lbs not much) for years since the last child. I have began to eat the paleolithic way and it has made me feel less tired and has kept me full! If I get hungry I grab my walnuts or seeds or berries or even eat a plain hamburger to satisfy myself. I am dedicated to attempting to practice this. I was concerned about calcium at my age but am taking a 1500 mg supplement and if I eat the green leafy veggies I should I also get calcium. This is so natural, makes sense and is perfect for me. I liked the "history" in the book too. I checked out paleolithic eating online and found alot of interesting info and nothing to determine it is "unsafe" nor "unhealthy". I am recommending this way of eating to others. I like the way the book is put together because he doesn't call it a "DIET" and its not geared only toward losing weight, its about eating healthier and more natural. We are a spoiled society with all of our preservatives. If Dr.'s recommend to eat this way, they would lose business no wonder they don't! They want their salaries too. More Dr.'s should recommend this healthy way.
Raymond V. Audette (Biography)
At the age of 33, Ray Audette was diagnosed with diabetes. This was devastating--he'd already been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for over 12 years and was forced to walk with a cane. Tired of being sick all the time, and unhappy with what his doctors said couldn't be cured, he decided to school himself on these disorders. As a result of his research, he developed an interest in Paleolithic nutrition (the science of what our Stone Age ancestors ate before the development of agrarian societies).
He then started on a natural diet, and although he expected positive results, he was astounded by the improvement he saw in just one week. His blood sugar levels were normal, and within a month, the arthritic pain was gone; his muscle tone improved, and he lost 25 pounds.
It became his mission to share this information, so he developed NeanderThin, a simple plan for achieving a healthy weight--and, most importantly, a healthy body.
