  • Hey guys,

    I am currently about 255 and 5’11, nearer to 30s with respect to % of bodyfat than 20s, and I am beginning to feel a bit sluggish, which is way too early for me 🙁

    I am trying to get started with the paleo diet but there’s plenty of contradictory info about it. To ensure it is easier – I figure I had just begin already and tweak my procedure from there.

    I am deciding between 2 novels right now (LINK) – Has anyone read either/can indicate which one is more complete summary of all the paleo diet details?

    Super excited to start becoming a little fitter and lose some weight!
