The Member Dashboard

The easiest way to login to the Member Dashboard is in the upper right corner of the website, where it says “Login”. (You’ll only see this if you’re logged out.)

The Forum

The new Chris Kresser Member Forum might be the most important addition to the site. This free forum is moderated by Paleo Ambassadors that will keep the conversation civil, and I have two Paleo nutritionists on staff who will be popping in and answering questions on occasion, so you can count on good quality answers to your general health and Paleo diet questions. While we can’t answer personal medical questions, it’s a great place to discuss your struggles and successes with the diet and lifestyle changes I’ve recommended on my website and in my new book. This content is only available to members of

This page currently contains 7 eBooks based on some of my more popular series of articles, with more coming in the future. While the original articles are still available elsewhere on the site, I’ve created these free downloadable eBooks to help condense the information into a more user-friendly format. This content is only available to members of


By clicking on the Programs button, you can access my most popular digital programs, including the Personal Paleo Launchpad, the Healthy Baby Code, and the High Cholesterol Action Plan. These programs are the product of thousands of hours research and clinical experience with hundreds of clients, and can help you optimize your diet and lifestyle to reach your health goals.

I’ve also created a revamped version of the Meal Plan Generator called the Paleo Recipe Generator, which is my most affordable digital product and a great time-saver in the kitchen and grocery store. Get access to hundreds of Paleo recipes, create meal plans specific to your health needs, and send your shopping list to your smartphone.

The Seminars section features interviews with guests on special topics such as digestive health, meal preparation, heart disease, and more. This section will be updated with new interviews throughout the year, so be sure to check it out as new topics become available. This content is only available to members of


If you’re interested in learning more about Your Personal Paleo Code (published in paperback as The Paleo Cure in December 2014), you should check out the Books tab. This section of the website will also feature any of my subsequent books as well, as I plan to write more in the future.


If you click the button that says Articles, this will bring you to the page that features all my blog posts, starting with the most recent. If you’re interested in reading the weekly articles I post, or seeing what’s new with the blog, this is the best place to start. It’s also the page that is most similar to my original blog layout. You may want to bookmark this page if you’re a frequent blog reader and would like to access this page quickly.


If all else fails, and you can’t find something you’re looking for on the site, be sure to check out the search function on the top navigation bar. Click the small magnifying glass icon and it will expand into a search box that you can type into, searching for any topic you’re interested in. Sample search terms include “thyroid”, “cholesterol”, and “weight loss” – these will pull up the dozens of articles and podcasts I’ve done on these popular topics, and can help you find more information on specific health concerns.

There is always something new at and the best way to keep up to date with the new content is by opening the emails I send. While not every email will be relevant to you, there are always new topics I write about at the blog, along with new podcasts, and these may cover a specific topic you’re interested in. I also share recipes and giveaways on a regular basis, and reading these emails (however briefly) will ensure that you are updated on all the new content available on the site. My goal is to keep these emails short and sweet, and to update you on the new content available without overloading your inbox.

If you’re a regular user, it’s a good idea to spend a little time browsing the site to see what else is available. I’ve described the most helpful components of the website, but you may notice there’s even more listed on the top of the site, including information on my clinic, supplement recommendations for various health conditions, and a collection of my various media appearances as they happen.

I hope this guide has been helpful for anyone who has been confused by the new membership site design, or even those who were enjoying the new site but didn’t realize how much new content is now available! Please feel free to leave constructive feedback in the comments below – I’m always looking to ensure that is the best website for natural and integrative health solutions out there!

  1. The link to does not work. It re-directs back to the main page. There does not seem to be any way to access the forum.

  2. I also agree with most of the other comments insofar as I preferred the former format. I have read Chris’s book and cannot find anything that the the book refers to on the website. It just refers to the website. It does not provide any specific links. I sent an email to Chris regarding my disappointment with this matter, and did not receive a response to date. 🙁

  3. I agree with what most of the other people are saying. I hate the new format. I can’t find anything. As someone said above I would have moved on from this site if I had encountered this version of it initially. I would have said, oh this guy is trying to sell books and make money. My experience with that kind of website is that they are mostly long on hype and short on value. With this format I would lump this website in with the others and just move on.

  4. I am having a lot of trouble with the new format. It seemed like all the articles were easy to find, and now I can’t even find them at all no matter how I search. I wanted to pull up info on chrono disruption but coming up zilch. I miss the old format and I agree it seems more like it’s about brand now than usability/accessibility. I can’t get to what I want, and it’s trying to make me go to what it wants. Bummer.

  5. Chris’s book mentions orange-tinted glasses and says to see his website for recommendations. I can’t find a reference to them anywhere!! The site is difficult to search.

  6. Is there no more index pages for Chris’ article series? For example Thyroid and Acid reflux, which now have pdf-files, don’t have index-html-pages. I think the pdf-files and html-index’s could coexist? Who has time to open pdf-files..

    I see that for example Diabesity still has an index-page, but I don’t find a link to it from within the site. Maybe when hovering over the Articles-link on the top there could be links to index-pages of these series. In the same way that the Programs-link has secondary links. I just don’t think that most people have the patience to open and use pdf-files.

  7. I’ll be very honest with you doc. The new site doesn’t work for me, both as a casual user, or as an ex-user interface designer. I’m talking particularly about the front page.

    It looks like a big infomercial with this huge picture in the beginning, which forces users to scroll down to find the actual headlines. Scrolling is always very bad, because the information is no longer immediate. This creates a very cold, impersonal, “business as usual” web site, rather than the cool-dude-blog-style you had before. Now, it’s about a brand, previously it was about Chris. This difference might prove a bad move for you down the line.

    • Agreed, Eugenia. If the website had looked like this when I first found it, I would never have become a CK fan. It’s all very rigid and unfriendly, oversized and in-your-face. It seems to have little to do with who Chris really is. I hope this change is temporary and we’ll see a return to an information-rich format with clear navigation.

    • Also, my RSS feeder stopped sending updates. I came here to see what’s up, and it seems like the newest articles just aren’t making it to the old RSS feed.
