Paleo Hack

“Having Trouble STICKING with the Paleo Diet?”

WARNING!There’s JUST ONE REASON you might fail on the Paleo Diet and it has everything to do with your ability to make delicious food, FAST.

But now, with this stunningly simple cookbook I’ll show you how to cook savory, mouth-watering meals in minutes for some of the busiest Paleo eaters in the world…

Fellow Paleo Friend,Let’s get serious for a second…

You’re here because you already know that the Paleo Diet is a great thing.

We both know that there’s no other diet on earth that delivers so many across the board health benefits WITHOUT calorie counting, hype, gimmicks or anything like that.

In Fact, Paleo Is Not Really a “Diet” At All!

It’s really a return to the type of eating your body naturally craves and was designed for. And that’s why it works. It’s based on how we humans evolved for literally millions of years.

And takes us back to our origins. A time when nobody got fat. When we were all strong, lean and had boundless energy. And when there were no degenerative diseases.

Virtually Every Health Benefit Under the Sun Can Now Be Yours!

As I’m sure you’ve heard, countless individuals around the world have turned to the Paleo Diet and way of living in order to regain their health, energy, vitality and power. Just a few of the benefits user report are:

  • Leaner, Stronger Muscles
  • Increased Energy
  • Significantly More Stamina
  • Clearer, Smoother Skin
  • Weight Loss Results
  • Better Performance and Recovery
  • Stronger Immune System
  • Enhanced Libido
  • Greater Mental Clarity
  • No More Hunger/Cravings
  • Thicker, Fuller Hair
  • Clear Eyes
  • And So Much More!

In fact, when you toss all the false nutritional info out there aside and finally get back to your roots, there’s really no part of your health and body that DOESN’T get better in some way.

And that’s why the Paleo Diet is by far the fastest growing eating trend on planet earth. Because the results speak for themselves.

Maximum Nutrition, Minimum Interference!

The Paleo Diet and similarly, the Paleo Recipes you’re about to discover work by two fundamental principles:

  • 1. Put maximum nutrition INTO your body… and…
  • 2. Reduce or eliminate toxins and “interference”.

The first one is obvious. Natural foods from the plant and animal world especially when organic and untouched by the horrors of modern food production and manufacturing are loaded with essential nutrition.

The second principle is just as fundamental, but less apparent. It means that when we avoid toxins hidden packaged/processed food… and the many hidden toxins in commercial meat, fruits and vegetables…

Our bodies begin to clean out and detoxify. This allows our cells to expend less energy in actually fighting off foreign substances and more on rebuilding, growth and rejuvenation.

The result? We look better, feel better, and perform better.

Imagine seeing and feeling more positive changes in your body and health than most people see in years of other “diets”? It happens all the time…

Because you’re finally getting all the vitamins, minerals, protein, fats and low GI carbohydrates that maintain the health of every organ in our body.

There’s only one little problem…

Why Most People Fail to STAY On the Paleo Diet

Now, given the amazing results and all the buzz about eating this way, you’d think it would be a breeze to stay on it, right?

Well, for some it is. But not all. Because unfortunately, most of the advice out there like “eat like a caveman”… or just “meat and vegetables” gives you no real instructions for how to do this diet properly.

So what happens? You get bored eating the same thing everyday… frustration goes… and then you quit.

But it doesn’t have to be that way! PaleoHacks already provides the very best community for supporting and encouraging each other with cutting-edge info and truths about the Paleo Diet.

And now, for the first time ever…

I’ve Partnered With The World’s Biggest, Most Active Community of Paleo Enthusiasts

It’s all real food you’ll find on the outer edges of the supermarket including a variety of meat, vegetables and the occasional addition of nuts and seeds.

That’s it and yet you won’t believe the types of recipes that are possible…

Eat Rich, Juicy, Mouth-Watering Meals that Make Your Friends Jealous…

Just imagine, while all your friends are counting calories – suffering through yet another miserable diet… or worse, they’re ignorant and eating random/processed food that’s aging them at warp speed…

You trigger a wave of rejuvenation throughout your body one that’s visible on your midsection, your muscle tone, skin, hair, face and much more.

This is just one reason why so many people from all walks of life are turning to the Paleo diet because it produces results without the oppressive, tasteless foods and portion or calorie control you find on most diets.

The only trick the secret to truly making the Paleo diet work is being able to make a variety of meals that taste good to you… so that you never get bored and always feel great about what you’re eating.

How Food Marketers Make You Think You’re Choosing Healthy Food

How Food Marketers Make You Think You're Choosing Healthy Food

Plans to eat healthy can fly out the window when you step into a grocery store. Maybe you add junk food to your cart full of vegetables. Or maybe you believethe hype that a food is healthy, when it’s really not the best choice. Here are some of the traps that food marketers use against you.

They Use Healthy Promises to Distract You From the Truth on the Back of the Label

How Food Marketers Make You Think You're Choosing Healthy Food

Front-of-package nutrition information is a form of marketing, a sort of mini-ad to get you to pick up the product. It includes claims ranging from “All Natural” to “Gluten Free” to “Good Source Of…” or “Made With Real…” Some of these claims are regulated, some aren’t, but they’re all aiming to put a “health halo” on the product.

Here’s what that means: people consistently estimate calories as being lower in meals that they think are healthier—for example, people eating at Subway figure they’re taking in fewer calories than people eating at McDonald’s, even when that’s not true. Adding “trans fat free” crackers to a hypothetical meal makes people guess it has fewer calories than people in another group who saw the meal without the crackers.

There’s even evidence that, at least in food marketed to children, less-healthy foods are more likely to have health claims. Here’s a small study from the Prevention Institute explaining this idea, but a larger study presented at this week’s American Society for Nutrition conference confirms and updates it, noting that front-of-package marketing, especially for junk food, has gotten far more popular in recent years.

Now the good news: Just knowing that the “health halo” effect exists may help you fight it. There’s a lot of research on priming, the idea that making you think about something (health) influences decisions you’ll make. It turns out that if you know there’s a priming effect going on, you’re less susceptible to it.

So when you see health claims, be skeptical: they’re only there to help sell a product. Consider following or adapting Michael Pollan‘s “food rule” to avoid foods that are heavily advertised (even if what they’re advertising is their healthfulness.)

An important strategy is to not forget your nutritional goals. If you’re trying to avoid high-sugar foods, for example, flip over every package to check the sugar content. Don’t get distracted by what’s on the front.

They Hope You’re Making Healthy Decisions Somewhere Else

How Food Marketers Make You Think You're Choosing Healthy Food

It’s good news for junk food manufacturers if you’re bringing your own bags and filling your cart with vegetables. Actions like those can make you think you’re already doing such a good job at this shopping thing (You care about the environment! You’re buying lots of healthy food!) that you figure you can break a few rules.

Shoppers who bring their own bags buy more organic foods, but also more junk food, according to a Harvard Business School study of grocery store data. While that’s only a correlation, the researchers did a pretty good job of ensuring they were comparing shopping trips that were similar except for the bags. So does this mean you’re better off leaving the bags at home? Not necessarily, but it might help to change what thought those bags trigger in your mind: Not “Look at the good thing I’ve done,” but “Here’s my intention (to shop mindfully) and I’m going to fill these grocery bags with foods that reflect that intention.”

If you’re going to set a goal of buying healthy food (like filling half your cart with fruits and vegetables, marketing psychology researcher Gavan Fitzsimons suggests that you should also set a goal for what not to do, rather than expecting the no-no’s to take care of themselves. It’s a similar effect to the health halo, but this time on the scale of a whole grocery cart: if your cart contains obviously healthy things, you’ll be biased to think the whole cart is healthy.

They Publicize Benefits and Create (or Ride) Trends

How Food Marketers Make You Think You're Choosing Healthy Food

The hottest health foods seem to change every minute, but that’s not because new foods are constantly being discovered, or because the newly trendy foods are better than old ones. It’s because magazines can’t sell “Spinach is still good for you!” every month, so media and food companies ride waves of arugula being the best, then baby greens, then kale. (I hear watercress might be making a comeback next.) Variety is great, but that doesn’t mean there was ever anything wrong with spinach.

As I write this, I’m at the American Society of Nutrition conference, listening to scientific presentations on nutrition—and the number of corporate logos is astounding. Not just the biggies like Pepsi and Kellogg, but specialized groups too: if there’s a study on cranberry juice, for example, you can bet there will be an Ocean Spray logo on the acknowledgements slide.

Corporate funding doesn’t mean the study is bogus, but topics with good funding are more likely to be investigated (or in other words, funding doesn’t always bias the answer, but does buy the question.) To use another example from this conference, take the news that adding eggs to your salad makes the vitamins in the vegetables more available to your body. Amazing, right? It’s actually not news: fat-soluble vitamins are more available to your body when you eat them with fat. The same researcher who did this work has shown the same effect with other foods, including oils. So why are eggs getting the press? Take a look at the funder (which most of the news articles aren’t reporting): the American Egg Board.

How to thwart this one: return to your goals again. Is the trendy or newsworthy food really helping you with a goal you care about? (For example, were you worried about vitamin bioavailability from your salads? Probably not.) If a trendy new food fits those goals, sure, give it a try. But also use a stodgy old relative as a mental foil: What would Grandpa eat? Chances are, the old standby (Spinach? Strawberries?) is just as good, and cheaper.

Indie Paleo Cookbook a Hit with Hungry Readers

EatDrinkPaleo

Irena Macri might seem to be an unlikely advocate for the paleo diet. Based on the idea that humans are best suited to eating what their Paleolithic (i.e., caveman) ancestors ate—berries, nuts, meat; not dairy, grains, and salt—the culinary approach is often associated with diehard evangelists and intense CrossFit devotees. Macri is the first to admit that “I am not dogmatic and I don’t really see [paleo] as a diet.” She takes a more casual approach.

Macri’s accessibility may partly explain the strong sales of her cookbook Eat Drink Paleo. In 2011, the Australian foodie started a blog of the same name, which she used to share original recipes and musings on eating like a hunter-gatherer. After much planning, marketing, and, of course, cooking, Macri self-published the cookbook in 2013. Her accessible tone and the book’s professional presentation helped sell thousands of copies, and now Penguin has grabbed it up, along with Macri’s follow-up.

“There is a time in every food blogger’s life when [he or she] plays around with the idea of creating a cookbook—self-published or through a traditional publisher,” Macri says. “It’s a bit of a holy grail of food blogging, really.”

For Macri, writing a cookbook made particular sense. A year after the blog’s launch, she had attracted a dedicated audience of about 40,000 monthly visitors, and her new recipes drew enthusiasm from the growing paleo community. She began bringing in a steady if small income through sales of ads on her site, as well as affiliate marketing, and she imagined that a book might provide a more direct stream of revenue.

Macri saw a gap in the Australian market for the type of high-quality cookbook she envisioned. “I wanted to create something that was much better than what was on offer,” she says. Even if it was self-published, she wanted the book to be professionally edited and designed, with original photography of actual meals.

“Sometimes when self-publishing, there might not be a budget to pay professional designers to help you bring your book to life,” says Carla Hackett, a book designer and friend whom Macri would tap for the book’s layout. “Having a professional and unique design helped Irena’s book gain popularity and, of course, can only help sales.”

Because of budget constraints, Macri turned to her readers for help, launching a campaign through the Australian crowdfunding site Pozible. The campaign struck a chord with readers. Lasting 35 days, it drew more than 300 backers pledging 13,000 AUD.

With funding in hand, Macri set to work planning the book. She continued to blog at the same pace she had and also worked part-time at a gallery. Over the course of about two months, she laid out the structure of the book, the format of the chapters, the major topics, and the types of recipes to include. “I was living in spreadsheets and scribbling Post-it notes everywhere,” she says.

Soon, Macri added pots and pans to the mix. She had a handful of recipes that had been popular on the blog that she knew would need to be included in the book. But beyond that she created brand-new ideas, testing them in the kitchen, “making sure I covered many different key ingredients and cuisines,” and holding on to the best ones.

As the recipes moved from scribbled notebook pages to final documents, Macri got to work on the book’s layout. She tapped Hackett, who was in the midst of launching her own hand-lettering business in Melbourne, to devise the look of the project. “I flew her over to Sydney for about 10 days and we basically got into this amazing collaborative frenzy,” Macri says.

They gathered a bevy of food-styling props, painted chalkboards, and bought “an astronomically large amount of food.” They cooked, shot images, cleaned, then repeated, getting 10–15 dishes each day for a week, inviting friends over for nightly dinner parties to feast on the huge volume of food. (A time-lapse video of Macri and Hackett creating the book’s cover can be viewed here.)

“I put together some style references for Carla and she had some strong concepts in mind that would reflect my brand, but then we brainstormed a lot of it on the spot,” Macri says. “My partner built a crane to suspend the camera over the table so I could have these amazing top angles—it was all very DIY.”

“She really wanted it to feel very real, genuine, and approachable,” Hackett says. “It really was a collaboration in the true sense of the word, with Irena and I being on the same page from the beginning.”

Macri conceived Eat Drink Paleo as an e-book, having considered the added costs and challenges print could present, especially for an art-heavy book. But she still created the material “as if there would be a printed book in the future”—ensuring all art was produced in high-resolution, it got a flexible design, and so on. Once the art was complete, Macri finalized the recipes and chapter introductions, preparing the marketing and promotional material as Hackett returned to Melbourne and completed the designs and layout, processing the photos using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Editor Jodie McLeod worked quickly with the text, reading over the pages, editing and proofing them. In the week or two ahead of publication, Macri met with Hackett at her studio and put the finishing touches on the design. “I even got into the InDesign to help with laying out the pages as Carla was making hand-drawn illustrations,” she says.

Release and Reception

Throughout all of the steps of funding, photographing, and finalizing the book, Macri kept her readers updated through her blog and social media. She found that this created a healthy amount of buzz as readers offered support and comments and shared the updates with their own friends and family. By the time the book actually came out, “I had a line of readers wanting to purchase it,” Macri says.

To connect with readers beyond her core audience, Macri also drafted a press release, which she sent out to magazines, newspapers, food and wellness bloggers, and others in the paleo community. She sent free copies of the printed book or e-book to those who might review it (without obliging them to do so), and submitted guest posts and recipes to other blogs. She used Google Ads and giveaways, as well as a launch party to which she invited guests known well among paleo enthusiasts. “I basically did anything and everything you can think of,” Macri says. The effort paid off. Within its first weeks, the book’s sales climbed.

After Eat Drink Paleo’s first month as an e-book, with hundreds of copies selling weekly, Macri felt confident that it was a good time to try it in print form. Hackett repurposed the master file for the slightly different dimensions of a print book, and Macri created a few short print runs, covering the up-front costs herself. She found an affordable and high-quality printing house in Germany that would turn around runs of a few thousand books, printing 2,000, which sold out quickly, then another 3,000 books.

Eat Drink Paleo was hardly the first book on the subject. But Macri’s efforts to come up with creative, original recipes and package them in an eye-catching, professional layout set it apart from many other cookbooks that “regurgitate the same kind of recipes over and over again, repurposing and adapting the classics,” as she puts it.

The book also stood apart in its more accessible tone. While the paleo market is full of doctrinaire voices offering commandments pertaining to what one must and must not eat, Macri emphasizes moderation.

Penguin Picks It Up

Eat Drink Paleo moved about 8,000 copies, and soon began catching the attention of major publishing houses, which reached out to Macri about releasing the book with them. As she was making good money on sales and happy with the professional quality of her self-published book, Macri was in no rush to sign on with one of the big houses. But, about a year and a half after the book’s release, as Macri began to plan a follow-up, Penguin sent her an email about working together.

“I really jumped to my feet,” Macri says. “For starters, we’re talking about Penguin, who publish some of my food idols. Secondly, they were asking about a new book and I have always wanted to do at least one book through a traditional publisher.”

After an initial meeting at which the publisher expressed interest not only in Eat Drink Paleo, but her next book as well, negotiations deepened and Macri began seriously considering the offer. On the one hand, Penguin offered extensive distribution and a marketing apparatus that could help spread the word beyond Macri’s own paleo network. On the other hand, she was concerned about re-releasing a book that had already done well, not to mention giving up the sole rights to the book.

“I could no longer sell it myself, which after having so much control over it was very hard to do,” Macri says. She admits that the decision was a difficult one, but the promise of “reaching so many more people” convinced her it was worth moving to a big publisher. In short order, her instincts proved sound, as Penguin generated major publicity and distribution with Penguin Books UK and the Switzerland-based German-language publisher AT Verlag. “Hopefully it will soon get picked up by other countries as well,” Macri says.

In addition to riding the continued success of Eat Drink Paleo, Macri has now jumped into work on her second book, this time collaborating closely with the Penguin team.

To others considering self-publishing, Macri insists that success is possible as long as they create “a very good product.” To do that, as she found, an author first needs, “great content, a solid market, some money, and lots of hard work. If you have that, go for it. You never know where that will lead you.”

Creator of the Paleo Diet Publishes First-Ever Cookbook

Soon-to-be mom Jessica Biel swears by it and Megan Fox is also a follower. With such celebs on the Paleo Diet, the eating plan that is intended to mimic the way our paleolithic ancestors ate, is more popular than ever. And now, its secrets are being revealed in a new cookbook by Paleo Diet founder Dr. Loren Cordain.

“Our genes haven’t changed a lot in the last 40 or 50 thousand years,” Cordain said today on “Good Morning America.” “So we do quite well on the foods that we’re genetically adapted to.”

The idea behind Paleo is to eat foods that our ancestors ate tens of thousands of years ago. Cordain claims you’ll stay in shape and protect yourself better from heart disease and diabetes. He even says following the diet can even help reduce or eliminate acne.

But it’s not an easy lifestyle. You can eat only grass-fed meat, fish, fruits and veggies, staying away from processed foods, sugar, wheat, grains and dairy.

A little-known secret, though? Cordain recommends following the diet at least 85 percent of the time, allowing for some cheats.

Some easy swaps are veggie chips in place of potato chips or nuts instead of granola in a trail mix.

But not everyone’s sold on the diet.

“The downfall is missing out on certain foods that many nutrition experts, including myself, feel are important to have in one’s diet, such as legumes that are rich in fiber and other good nutrients,” nutritionist Rachel Beller, author of “Eat To Lose, Eat To Win,” said on “GMA.”

Cordain responded to that criticism, though, by saying, “When we eliminate those, what happens is all of the other foods fill in and make the diet much healthier and nutrient dense.”

Caveman paleo recipes eBook & video

Considering The World We Live In… Is It Any Surprise That The Paleo Diet Has Taken The World By Storm???
The Paleo diet is the newest and most innovative development in dietary science.
And yet in MANY ways, this “innovative” diet is paradoxically a return to traditional eating; it’s based on the way human beings ate even before the rise of agriculture, in the days when most of us subsisted on what grew freely.
The Paleo diet isn’t just a great way to lose weight.
It’s also a great way to ensure a proper balance of nutrients, for improved:
✔ Stamina
✔ Eyesight
✔ Mental health
✔ Energy
✔ Athletic performance
✔ Cardiovascular health
✔ Libido
✔ Intelligence and mental performance
✔ Happiness
There’s only one downside:
Following the Paleo Diet properly, for most people, is EXPENSIVE!
Because lets face it: the kinds of foods the Paleo diet recommends are not the kinds of things you can just buy and pop in the microwave.
Most of them require shopping at specialty food stores, or at least taking a trip to your grocery store’s more exotic sections.
What all this adds up to is this:
For most people, following the Paleo diet means eating out at restaurants that specialize in paleo diet dishes, or at best buying the Paleo diet branded goods at the grocery store, which can often cost a small fortune.
So how can we make these meals at home without spending a ton of money?

Ultimate juicing recipes & tips: 4th edition

For the first time, here’s a collection of juice recipes – over 275 – based on the latest nutritional discoveries. If you have an illness – or want to avoid one – we have a juice recipe to fight it. So while you’re enjoying a delicious glass of fresh juice, now you can also target your health concerns whether it’s weight loss, anti-aging, more energy, better sex, or fighting diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and many more!

I wish I started juicing decades ago and started all my friends and family as well! Here are the eye-opening reasons why!

I’m very healthy and always have been. I don’t eat a lot of junk food, I’m not overweight, and I exercise daily – I’m even a Pilates instructor (check me out at PilatesLessons.org)! But there’s just one problem. I don’t eat all the fruits and veggies I’m supposed to eat every day. Who does? I seriously don’t think that I EVER ate the minimum daily requirement of fresh fruits and veggies!

The 30 day intro to Paleo

We are confident your Paleo journey won’t end at day 30.
We believe that after one month of eating wholesome foods our bodies were designed to eat, you will have no desire to go back.  Why?  Because this is the first diet where you will eat delicious, mouth-watering meals and the mirror will still thank you.  It’s a diet that will make you feel proud for the nutrients you are putting in your body, rather than filling it with harmful chemicals and processed foods.  It will leave you feeling strong, energized, and focused; rather than weak or deprived. And for all those reasons, it’s anything BUT a “diet.”

If you want to try Paleo for 30 days, we will give you the tools to do so.  All we ask from you is the motivation to commit.  How do you find motivation?  By seeing results.  How do you get results?  By sticking to a plan.

Complete paleo

My name is Nikki Young, author of the Paleo Cookbooks. Before I introduce you to my delicious paleo recipes, I want to tell you straight off the bat that the paleo diet is not a diet designed by diet doctors, faddists, or nutritionists; it is a diet designed by nature. It is not the latest weight loss program or celebrity diet that leaves you craving sugar-laden foods.
The paleo diet is the diet the human body is supposed to follow, and as such, all the positive results gained from following the paleo foundations seamlessly fall into place:

    – Increased Energy
    – Clearer, Smoother Skin
    – Weight Loss Results
    – Better Performance and Recovery
    – Stronger Immune System
