If you are looking for more information on the Paleo lifestyle, I would encourage you to start with these 2 books:
Robb Wolf is a biochemist who provides the science behind the Paleo diet in an easy to follow book called The Paleo Solution.
Mark Sisson has put his own spin on the Paleo diet, renaming it Primal, and his original book is The Primal Blueprint. He modifies some basic principals around dairy and overall compliance. Again, it’s an easy read with lots of info to back his claims.
The Paleo Physicians Network is a group of doctors who understand and follow Paleo principals in helping patients. http://paleophysiciansnetwork.com/
If you are interested the basics of adrenal fatigue, I would recommend Dr. Wilson’s book Adrenal Fatigue, The 21st Century Stress Syndrome. I substituted Paleo principles for many of the diet and supplementation advice, but it is a good resource.
Adrenalfatiguesolution.com is an update and informative website with more specifics on adrenal fatigue, including causes and solutions.
