Paleoista: A more feminine, ‘no cave’ Paleo diet


The new book, Paleoista, interprets the paleo diet and lifestyle in a less primal, more “feminine, fashionable” way.

Nell Stephenson’s first book, The Paleo Diet Cookbook, was a straight-forward paleo diet guide, co-authored with paleo pioneer Loren Cordain. Her new book, out May 1, is… a little different.

The book, Paleoista: Gain Energy, Get Lean and Feel Fabulous with the Diet You Were Born to Eat, developed (and took its name) from her nutritional consulting company and accompanying blog, where the focus is on interpreting the paleo diet and lifestyle in a less primal, more “feminine, fashionable” way.

That description—combined with Paleoista’s fashion-y illustrations and Sex and the City meets Skinnygirl vibe—might make Stephenson sound like a priss, but the author and paleo advocate is also a personal trainer and 5-time Ironman athlete. I talked with her about the paleo diet philosophy, the need for a female-friendly paleo book, and what’s so bad about whole grains and beans.

How would you quickly describe the paleo diet to someone who’s never heard of it? It’s based on how humans are supposed to be eating, based on how paleo people ate. Basically, you’re eating things that are fresh food and you’re not eating anything that’s not—no dairy, no grains, nothing that requires andy kind of refinement. Its core is fresh vegetables and fruit, lean meats and poultry, wild fish and unprocessed fats.
