intro to the paleo diet with Chris Kresser

This post was started on March 14, 2014 and I am finally getting around to finishing it and posting it for you. Since that time I am 55 pounds lighter and feel good. This is the first of many posts about the paleo diet and autoimmune protocol that I have adopted to manage multiple sclerosis.

I have studied and mostly followed a paleo diet since March of 2014. Several books were published about that time on using the paleo approach to manage autoimmune disease. I own several and have listed them below the video.

In this post I am introducing Chris Kresser as I like his practical approach. Learn more about Chris at

Currently I am following the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) as designed by Sarah Ballantyne. I have followed the AIP since March 1st, 2015.

Chris Kresser is author of Your Personal Code; The Three Step Plan to Lose Weight, Reverse Disease, and Stay Fit and Healthy for Life.

Here is the list of books I own (yeah, it’s a lot…. I like to learn all I can before jumping in…. please don’t judge).
