Publisher's Summary

Solving the Paleo Equation: Stress, Nutrition, Exercise, Sleep is the ultimate guide to customizing your diet and lifestyle practices to your unique physical and metabolic needs.

You'll learn how to maximize your health practices and minimize your time and effort - no more driving yourself to exhaustion in hardcore fitness classes. No more strict, unsustainable, and impractical approaches to nutrition, either. Solving the Paleo Equation will help you not only avoid the ravages of adrenal fatigue, low metabolism, dwindling sex drive, and sleep problems - all-too-common consequences of overzealous workout regimes - it will help you rehabilitate from the unhealthful "health" protocols you've pursued in the past.

Throughout this audiobook, naturopathic physician Dr. Garrett Smith and independent health researcher and best-selling author Matt Stone address the main areas that the "health seeker" often dangerously ignores, like:

  • Sleep: One simple change in your bedroom could restore a normal cortisol rhythm
  • Stress: Practices to keep your home and workspaces from raising your adrenaline and sapping your testosterone!
  • Exercise: Simple, free, reliable ways to self-monitor to avoid burnout and overtraining, regardless of the type of exercise!
  • Nutrition: Learn about the four "Anti-Stress S's" and their powerful affects in the body!

Instead of regurgitating the old-school saw to "eat clean and exercise more", Smith and Stone focus on the basic pillars of true health and outstanding physical and mental function: sleep, stress, exercise, and nutrition. By analyzing and improving the fundamental areas of physical function - sleep quality, sexual performance, digestion, blood sugar regulation, body temperature, etc. - virtually every system of the body dramatically improves as well.

    "A manual for reclaiming health in the 21st century"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Solving the Paleo Equation is probably the most useful non-fiction audio book I have listened to. It is chock-full of explanations and suggestions for each of the subtitled areas: stress, nutrition, exercise, and sleep. With my personal issues of low thyroid, low morning body temperature, waking every morning between 2-4 am, and stubborn extra weight to get rid of, I am confident that I will be able to remedy these with their advice. The best part is that people already have, and I will be joining those who have stopped the insanity that the "industry" is feeding us and reclaim my health and vitality.

    For those who have bought into the super-training craze, the section on exercise is a MUST READ. Read it for your significant other and your kids and grandkids!


    Have you listened to any of Dave von Kleist and Matt Stone ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to either of these men before this book. And while I enjoyed the reading there were a couple of places where it sounded as if they changed recording machines or locations. However, the personalities of the readers far outweighed this minor distraction.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At 5+ hours this book is doable in a day. However, the "meat" in some of the sections is so dense that revisiting them will be a must. Several times.


    Any additional comments?

    The goal of the book (as stated in the introduction) of being a real-life guide, balanced, safe, and practical hit the bulls-eye dead on. Thank you!

    Story
    "A No-Nonsense Health Blueprint!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Solving the Paleo Equation to be better than the print version?

    Solving the Paleo Equation is a must listen for anyone who wants to live a healthy and abundant life.

    Particularly useful for anyone who has had experience with fad diets, exercise regimes etc and who wants to finally understand how to obtain true health and fitness.

    As someone who has struggled with eating disorders and exercise addiction my entire life, Solving the Paleo Equation has opened my eyes to the damage I have been doing to my body, and explains how to change my ways to achieve great health. It was a huge wake up call to realise that many of the practices I have been engaging in over the years in pursuit of elite fitness and/or body composition are actually NOT synonymous with good health - quite the opposite in fact!

    The book covers a broad range of topics including stress, diet, exercise and environment, which are all connected to good health, and lays out sustainable and achievable ways in which to implement new habits to improve all aspects of ones health and wellbeing.

    The reasoning and science behind the practices advised in the book is explained in a way which is easy to understand, and there is humour throughout the book, as well as real life personal experiences from the authors.

    In short, this book has changed my perspective on health, fitness and wellness, and in effect has changed my life for the better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the fact that I could relate to so much of the content - and I know for a FACT that there are millions of others out there who are making exactly the same mistakes, which have been identified and addressed in this book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Honestly, I can't say. All were equally good, and need to be implemented together to get the most out of the book. I wasn't as bothered about the section on EMFs etc, although I did find it eye-opening.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The section on exercise addiction, and the damage that exercise can inflict on ones body.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to the book. It's one of the best things you could do for your health!

    "Practical and jam packed with useful information"
    What did you love best about Solving the Paleo Equation?

    Easy to follow, useful information, particularly for people who might've gone down the paleo rabbit hole.


    Any additional comments?

    As a qualified Sports Nutritionist I have both been critical and appreciative of elements of the paleo diet. Matt and Garrett do a great job of providing an education to people who have dived head first into a diet without any critical thinking.

    And as always, Matt's entertaining style of narrating makes for an easy listen.

    "Confsuing"
    What did you like best about Solving the Paleo Equation? What did you like least?

    It is funny and light


    What does Dave von Kleist and Matt Stone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think the humor part


    Do you think Solving the Paleo Equation needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This book just makes losing weight more confusing. It basically states that we aren't doing it right but doesn't offer clear cut way of losing weight, almost seems to endorse gaining weight (temporarily) but I am not sure the book explains in enough detail how to lose it after you have gained it. In any event, no woman in her right mind wants to gain any weight even if it has a promise of being leaner later!

    Story
    "Just an opinion not research based"
    What disappointed you about Solving the Paleo Equation?

    Nothing is backed up by actual studies, its just very very vague about where he got his information from


    Would you ever listen to anything by Garrett Smith, N.D. and Matt Stone again?

    NO


    What does Matt Stone and Dave von Kleist bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Nothing


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger basically that someone can actually say things this important that are not backed up by fact. If there is fact there then it needs to be referenced


    Any additional comments?

    Waste of money
