You've heard great things, you've read the success stories, and you're ready to try the Paleo lifestyle--but in a world filled with bread, pizza, and cookies, it can be hard to get started and easy to fall off the wagon. What you need is a guide to help you transition, a three-step plan for sticking with Paleo, and a cookbook with easy, everyday Paleo recipes. What you need is Real Life Paleo.
Real Life Paleo takes a practical approach to going Paleo with three simple steps that Stacy Toth and Matt McCarry, creators of the popular blog Paleo Parents, used to lose a combined 200 pounds and improve the health of their whole family. The "Swap, Remove, Heal" method is easy for anyone to follow, no matter where you are in your journey: first, swap healthier versions of the worst offenders; then remove unhealthy foods entirely; and finally, add healing, nutritious foods to your diet.
Stacy and Matt also provide you with all the tools you need to make the switch to a Paleo lifestyle for good:
