A new set of cookbooks utilize an early diet adapted from the hunter-gatherer era.

Many people make loosing weight and taking better care of their health top the list of their New Year's resolutions. A new line of cookbooks available at will help those interested in losing weight start a diet that they can actually stick to.

The Paleo Cookbooks are not a new fad in dieting. Written by a paleo diet advocate Nikki Young, The Paleo Cookbooks feature recipes that follow the Paleolithic Diet, which is the diet of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. The diet excludes grains, dairy products, refined sugar, and processed oils and consists mainly of meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, nuts and seeds.

Also known as "the Caveman diet," the Paleo diet is based on the premise that modern humans are genetically able to adapt to the diet of their Paleolithic ancestors and that human genetics have scarcely changed since the dawn of agriculture. Therefore, an ideal diet for human health and well-being is one that resembles this ancestral diet.

Since getting healthy this year is usually a top concern for many, the Paleo Cookbooks are a great alternative to traditional diet cookbooks because of the nutritional value that is featured in each dish. The recipes have a steady dose of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats and low GI carbohydrates that help maintain the health of every organ in the body.

As one achieves their ideal body weight following the recipes in the cookbook, they'll also be able to achieve optimum health. Not only do the Paleo Cookbooks recipes help to shed unwanted pounds, they also help to improve energy levels, produce clearer, acne-free skin; a stronger immune system; and a noticeable spark in sex drives.

Young says that as individuals begin to follow the diet, the two most important factors are mental strength and education. "Following the Paleo Diet isn't the hardest nutritional program you will ever follow," Young says, "but if your mental determination to succeed drops then you will find yourself 'cheating' with bad foods early on as soon as you get a craving or fall into an emotional state. Even if it is one meal, it can ultimately make it harder to continue with the diet, especially if you feel you can't even stick to it for a week."

"Depending on your diet prior to deciding to go Paleo, the first few weeks can be the toughest. If you can fight through the sugar cravings and plan your meals every day, then you are going to do really well," Young advises.
