    Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. Read it twice. The mother of all nutri-books, outstanding work, there’s nothing more to say! If you don’t have enough time, simply skip Taubes. I can tell you the content: Carbs are bad.

    • Laura

      I think I’m more interested in Taubes’ explanation of the Dietary Guidelines. I know he’s got a bit of a vendetta against carbohydrates.

    ive read Nora’s book. the other 4 are on my list. I have read in the past 3 months: Paleolithic Prescription (Boyd Eaton), Paleo Diet (Cordain), Primal BluePrint (Sisson), The Vegetarian Myth (Lierre Kieth), The Second Brain (Micheal Gershon), Catching a Fire (Richard Wrangham), Guns, Germs and Steel (Jared Diamond), Wheat Belly (William Davis)

    Now reading: New Evolution Diet (Art DeVanny) and 1491 (Charles C Man)

    Continually Referring to: On Food and Cooking and Keys to Good Cooking (Harold McGee) – Make it Paleo (Staley-Mason)

    My current Read List is longer than my intestines..

    But Nora’s book will always hold a special place in my heart b/c it was the book that got me into Paleo..

    awesome list laura! are you going to post book reviews? i just received nutrition and physical degeneration myself and can’t wait to dive in.

    • Laura

      Thanks Brad! Yes, I will post reviews of any books I manage to read over Winter break.

    I haven’t read Meat or Good Calories, Bad Calories. I read Why We Get Fat. That was good. It certainly made me want to read/learn more. I have read the other books in the photo and loved them all. My vote for your next read would be Deep Nutrition. It’s really, really good. I also enjoyed Wheat Belly. It’s along the same lines as Good Calories, Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat.

    • Laura

      I have “Why We Get Fat” as well. I’m trying to determine which will be the most informative for me!

  • Krista Abrahams

    You know we highly, highly recommend Good Calories, Bad Calories and Primal Body, Primal Mind. For the middle of your break, I might go for Primal Body, Primal Mind. It has a unique and important slant. But I’d love to hear what you think!
