The New Evolution Diet was created by Arthur De Vany, who is an expert in the Paleo lifestyle, a form of diet that has been gaining a great deal of attention lately. De Vany has created a website that has gained a great deal of popularity and that shows other people how they can adopt De Vany’s Paleo lifestyle habits. Moreover, it was also published in the form of a book, which outlines the ways to consume more real foods that are primarily plant-based.

The premise of the New Evolution Diet is that the DNA of the modern human has barely changed from the way that it was thousands of years ago. Therefore, the thought is that by choosing a lifestyle that more closely mirrors that of our ancestors from that time, it will provide the body with the type of food that it was actually designed to process.

The New Evolution Diet states that while medicine, technology, and agriculture have given people a significant amount of protection from many threats, from disease to starvation, the result has also been a plague of obesity. De Vany suggests that this is because we are no longer eating and living in a way that is in line with what our bodies truly require. Therefore, he suggests that we limit the number of modern foods that we consume and place our focus on the types of foods that our ancestors from thousands of years ago would have eaten.

He believes that by taking this perspective, we will naturally suffer from fewer diseases and other forms of illness that result from what most people blame on simple aging. He feels that aging is not the cause of many of the symptoms that we associate with it – many of the declines of the body – but that the body could remain much more youthful if it were treated more naturally.

The New Evolution Diet book retails for about $15.99 in its print version, while its ebook digital version retails for around $10.

PROS
  • The New Evolution Diet book is easily affordable and available both online and in brick-and-mortar stores
  • The book can be purchased in either print version or digital ebook formats
  • The official website for the diet is carefully maintained with the direct participation of the diet’s author, providing a significant amount of support information to the recommendations in the book.
CONS
  • There are many critics to this type of diet and it has been suggested that the scientific foundation of this program is misrepresented.
  • This book is not a new concept but is a review of other forms of Paleo lifestyle diets.
  • Though much of the author’s work is written in a highly engaging way, this book is less so.
  • The expertise of this author is in the field of economics. He has no expertise in fitness and nutrition other than his own personal experience using the techniques he describes.

I had very different expectations for the New Evolution Diet than what it actually provided. I thought that it would be the principles of the paleo program, but with a scientific twist since we’re not exactly cavemen anymore and I don’t feel like having a life expectancy of 23 haha. But the science offered in this book has gaping holes, and the rest of it is just commonly accepted facts about exercise, insulin, and controlling weight, that you can get from almost any other diet book.

This diet is a great idea. Getting back to the way that we were naturally designed to eat is very wise.

Is this supposed to be using science? If it is, it’s really breaking away from what I was taught … and from common sense!

this looks like a lot of bologna to me. I really wouldn’t want to base my diet on what cave men ate – even if it is just an updated version. Those guys were lucky to live to be 20!
