The Paleo Diet has been growing in popularity for a while now. So much so that you might consider it has crossed over from being a fad diet to being commonly known. On this episode of Bulletproof Radio, author and Paleo expert, Chris Kresser, makes a valid and fundamentally sound argument about how that is just not the case! After many years of hacking his own health and discovering the distinct formula that works best for his biology, Kresser is eager to share the formula he thinks will work for everyone – and it’s all about personalization. Chris comes on the show to discuss the principles behind his new book, Your Personal Paleo Code. You’ll hear how a desperate health scare became a big motivator for Kresser, his thoughts on epigenetics, Chris’ response to some current Paleo Diet criticisms, and a ton more! Have a great listen and happy New Year!

Chris Kresser, M.S., L.Ac, is a practitioner of integrative and functional medicine and the creator of ChrisKresser.com, one of the most respected natural health sites in the world.

“Everything we can do to reduce stress in our lives will lead to great health.” – Ronda Collier

Learn about why the average person should care about HRV, how broccoli is used to qualify fractals, and why self-awareness is key to self-preservation.

From chat rooms to forums, the Internet allows us to communicate anonymously about anything under the sun – the extremely useful and the unfortunately useless. The nootropic stack CILTEP is one of those “extremely useful” gems from an Internet forum via Longecity.org. The creator of this underground nootropic stack comes on the show for an exclusive talk about CILTEP and how it works. CILTEP is  a natural stack designed to improve and maintain brain performance, especially memory, focus, and motivation.

He is currently in his late 30s and in his second year of earning a masters in computer science.  Abelard started investigating alternative medicine and the brain about 10 years ago and was motivated to apply and go back to graduate school in computer science after he began taking the nootropic stack CILTEP because, as he says: “…it was so much easier and enjoyable for me to learn new material… CILTEP made me want to study.”
