My Book Is Out In Paperback—With a New Name: The Paleo Cure

My Book Is Out In Paperback—With a New Name: The Paleo Cure

by Chris Kresser

Published on

We're giving away 50 free copies of my book to celebrate it's release in paperback - with a new name! Your Personal Paleo Code is now The Paleo Cure.

This blog, and my book, are not really about the Paleo diet.

But it’s much simpler to say “Paleo” than to say “a nutrient dense, toxin-free, real-food diet that emphasizes animal protein and fats, starchy & non-starchy vegetables, fermented foods, raw dairy (when tolerated) and fruit, nuts & seeds.” And the truth is that the typical Paleo diet will get you pretty close to this dietary ideal. With just a few extra tweaks, however, you can uncover an even more powerful, personalized version of the Paleo diet that is ideal for you.

“The Paleo Cure” turns the popularized version of the #Paleo diet into your own powerful healing tool to take control of your health.

This book walks you through a process to discover the deeper, hidden power of a Paleo-style diet (and Paleo-inspired lifestyle) to prevent and reverse disease and turn you into the lean, energetic person you were meant to be. It is the same great process outlined in the hardcover version, Your Personal Paleo Code, but with a new name that better reflects just how powerful it can be: nothing less than a CURE.

In addition to teaching you what and how to eat, The Paleo Cure also provides practical, easy-to-follow advice for personalizing your lifestyle. By focusing not only on food, but also on exercise, stress management, sleep, and human connection, you will create your own “Paleo Cure”—just like hundreds of patients at my clinic have. With this approach, you can achieve you health goals whether they are simply to lose some weight, or to cure a health condition like IBS, chronic fatigue, or even diabetes.

To celebrate this milestone—the release of my book in paperback—I’m giving away free 50 copies. There are several ways to enter to win just by joining our mailing list, or by spreading the word about the book on social media. (This offer is limited to residents of the continental United States and must be entered by January 5, 2015; see below for additional details.)

Before I sign off, I’d like to send a special thanks to those of you who helped make this book, in hardcover, a New York Times Bestseller in 2014. I couldn’t have done it without you!

I hope 2015 brings you joy, health, and fulfillment.

  1. Hi – I’m really interested in purchasing the Paleo Cure. I’m in the UK and would like an e-book version such as Kindle/Kobo etc – however I can’t find it in any of the e-book stores?

  2. I am interested and excited to take my health to the next level. Question: will I automatically lose weight on the Personal Paleo Code eating plan? My concern is that I will lose weight; I am 5’9″ 1/2″ and 140-145 lbs and believe I am at a good weight. Thanks for your response.

  3. I just received the much-anticipated book, and I have a question on the 30-day reset. Why are you not allowed to have even natural sweeteners such as stevia.

    I have been following the Paleo diet for several months now and it has really helped so much with my IBS and stomach problems. But I think I have eaten too much fruit because it has caused belly fat and I have gained some weight back, which I don’t like! I would like to try the 30-day reset but without stevia??

  4. Hi Chris, u have chosen a much, much better title now. “your personal paleo code” said what it is but was utterly complicated. but even worse were the translations to foreign languages. the original complicated words were made into sthg so complicated … – i could have never ever backtranslated that into English in order to understand what it should have meant when i wouldnt know the original title. the title of the Hungarian translation (i am native) mean for example literally “tailormade paleolithic computer programming”. i feel you wrote one of the few books that deserve to carry the word “cure”

  5. I was just wondering what you thought about this article by John Brisson discussing how Soil Based Probiotics can cause problems for people who don’t have enough good bacteria (link below). Even going as far as to say that some of the organisms are opportunistic and can make people very sick. I had a gut infection close to two years ago and I have been taking Prescript Assist for a couple of months now after switching from the D-Lactate Custom Probiotics formula and I did not know what to make about this article and several other I saw saying basically the same thing. Is this anything to worry about?

  6. Thank you for what you do! In a world where we pay to exercise, and drink our vitamins because our food is so depleted, it is great to see answers in real food. Looking forward to following your blog in 2015. Cheers!

  7. Oh I want to win your book so bad… my boyfriend’s doctor is saying that my boyfriend is a ticking boom because of his high cholesterol, but I don’t want him to take the pill she is asking to … because I red alot about how cholesterol is not related to high cholesterol from you and Dr Mark… so this book will be like my bible…
    Will probably buy it if I don’t win…

  8. I am on a Paleo type diet for over 3 years. Got rid of an autoimmune thyroid condition already yet still take the thyroid meds. Therefore I am quite curios about Chris’ twist on this diet and would love to read his book, because I can imagine that I can learn something that I have not considered yet.

  9. I am really hoping that I will be blessed in winning one of your books Chris, I have much to learn and the state of my health means that it is imperative that I do something before it is too late. Thank you for considering my request in receiving your book

  10. Have read Paleo Code a my best friends suggestion and it worked perfectly…lost lots of weight by choice. He suggested it as I have epilepsy and went through three surgeries with great success. I love what you have to say and believe in it. Thanks for all you say and I look forward to what comes ahead in 2015.

  11. Hoping to win… Started the Paleo Approach over 2 1/2 months ago and I have been medication free for 62 days. No thyroid meds or narcolepsy meds or meds for depression. Have felt so alive for the first time in over 7 years and my husband calls me the “energizer bunny” now instead of “napping Nancy”. I cannot wait to read your book Chris thank you for all the I formative newsletters!

    • Narcolepsy is now considered an autoimmune condition? Is this hot off the presses, or am I nodding off at my computer? What will be the next reason to fix my gut?

    • How did you get off of Thyroid med in such a short time? Which were you taking and how did you know you could get off? Also how long were you taking the med? I’d love to get off the Armour Thyroid for hypo, but after 15 yrs, maybe not possible?

  12. Hi, I’m from England so also unable to participate in free draw but read your emails & try to follow best as I can. I have Hashimotos and gluten unfortunately gets into my blood stream but the infornation that you provide and blogs are extremely helpful.

  13. I just have to say, you cannot go wrong with the Paleo Plan. My husband and I have been following Chris’ advice from his book for going on 4 months now. My husband’s lab numbers decreased dramatically for the better. We both feel much better and are looking forward to further success continuing the Paleo Plan.

  14. Well, I’m sitting in the doctors office waiting to be told more about my thyroid cancer that has spread to tumors on my neck. Do you think your book can help, with the cancer going on? I looked up foods to eat with cancer and I am a little confused?

    • Get the book: Cancer Out of the Box by Ty Bollinger. Modern medicine is no closer to curing cancer today than they were 75 years ago. If something is non-patentable, your doctor won’t give it to you. The book will help you make educated decisions on things God put on earth to help. Many supplements will assist your treatment.

  15. What we call your description of “Paleo Cure” is Pre-industrial small family farm food tradition. Even though small family farming practices began to be “industrialized” in the mid to late 1800s, these traditional food preparation practices extended into the 1950s in isolated areas of Europe and in the USA (not to mention other cultures around the globe) where electrical power distribution was delayed. Many US farm kids growing up in the 1950s are familiar with these food practices.

  16. Attempted 3 times to sign up for book raffle. Sadly I guess on FB people get the option. Your ‘use your email’ button repeatedly conked out. I’d prefer to not participate in social narcissism, so no thanks on the FB option.
    Someone will enjoy your cookbooks!

    • Sorry you’re having trouble Kim. Please email [email protected] and they can help you solve the problem. Rafflecopter can be troublesome on mobile devices, so if you haven’t already please try on a desktop computer.

  17. I am totally confused there is so much controversy in the information out there now. I would like to compare this book with The Adrenial Reset Diet. I think both authors are good.

    • I can vouch for Chris’ book. But, we’re all in different places, so, like certain foods, some can absorb it, others, not so much. It was a “must buy” for me. If for no other reason than to pay back Chris for all the outstanding free content he provides.

      Christianson’s book is intriguing. He practices in my local area, too. Thanks for the tip.

      The Adrenal Reset Diet: Strategically Cycle Carbs and Proteins to Lose Weight, Balance Hormones, and Move from Stressed to Thriving
      by Alan Christianson

  18. Do you offer this book as an ebook? I have a problem reading small print, and only read books on my Kindle. I sure would love to read your book!

  19. I’m new to the paleo concept and would like to learn more.
    I’ve been devouring your website this morning…thank you for great info that is full of hope!

  20. Thank You Chris, i look forward to following your lead and healing myself with healthy eating. Your story has definitely inspired me! You walk your talk.

  21. I’ve been witness to your amazing journey to first healing yourself, and then transforming your being into a gift for all humans. We all have better lives, from knowing who you are in the deepest reaches of living and being. May you continue to light the way back to hearth and home.

  22. Thank you, Chris! I began a year ago following a more holistic approach to health and have listened to many of the webinars where you have been a lecturer. I have tried to absorb as much information as I can about proper nutrition and better digestion and I find your delivery style very compatible with my learning style. I gain so much from the information you share. Keep up the good work!

    I have your book in hard copy from the local library, but hope I’m fortunate to receive the free paperback copy to keep for my own library.

  23. I paid for a copy an have yet to receive it. Should we expect them to ship soon? Thanks Chris – always appreciate your hard work and expertise.

    • The Paleo Cure, is the “manifesto.” It will explain the “why” with some information on practical application, but more of a focus on the concepts. 14Four is the “blueprint,” an online program focused on practical application. It will help you to implement the nutrition, stress management, sleep, and physical activity recommendations Chris makes in the book.
