Professional certified fitness trainer Mikki Reilly has been working with clients for 20 years. She is a one-time competing body builder. As with other successful people, she brings her wealth of experience to a book. In this case she helps people lose weight and become fit.

Your Primal Body looks at how early people lived, ate, and exercised. Thus the "primal" and "paleo" in the title. How did our ancestors eat and exercise? On the other hand, what was their life expectancy.

The book reports that scientists study the remains of early humans. Acording to scientists paleo people were in far better shape than moderns. It seems their bodies were free of disease and painful conditions. Could it be they had to travel and walk and run to survive and hunt? I don't doubt that our sedentary lifestyles are not healthy for us.

But DNA of humans hasn't changed (despite evolution?). Well, the human genome appears to have evolved so slowly that our genetic blueprint is almost exactly what it was 40,000 years ago. Lifestyles change but our modern bodies are no different in their basic DNA, Given these facts, it seems only natural we find out the lifestyle of the ancients and replicate that.

The first section of the book features the paleo lifestyle and diet and what the scientists believe they have found. The second section has a five step plan to getting in shape. This includes exercises anyone can do. Most are simple enough. The third section is devoted to the diet. A sample menu and selected recipes are included.

Photos throughout help the reader with technique as well as motivation seeing the before/after photos of successful clients. Indices give the reader further resources to explore more information on this topic.
