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. He developed Your Personal Paleo Code based on more than ten years of research, his own recovery from a debilitating, decade-long illness, and his clinical work with patients. Chris was recently named one of the 50 most influential people in health and fitness by Greatist.com, along with Michelle Obama, Dr. Oz, Dr. Weil, and Deepak Chopra. Paleo Magazine declared Chris’s blog the top science-oriented blog in the Paleo community, and he is a regular health columnist at the Huffington Post.

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

Stress is the new health epidemic only that it’s not new at all. Stress has influenced humans since we were running away from sabre-toothed tigers and living in caves. That same flight-or-fight response still powers our nervous system today – and many of us are not very good at managing it. But that is certainly changeable with generative feedback technology like the HRV Sense™ app. Ronda Collier from SweetWater Health, joins Bulletproof Radio for a second time to discuss the science of Heart Rate Variability and how monitoring it efficiently allows for peak performance and a healthier life! 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. On this episode you’ll learn about how it was created and why you should supplement with it for optimal performance.

Abelard Lindsay has been doing software development professionally for 20 years. 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.”
