Paleo? Bulletproof? Yes!
I like to say I eat Paleo because it's easier for me to explain. My husband says the way we eat is really closer to Bulletproof. The difference? The "Bulletproof diet is carefully designed to avoid a bunch of common food toxins."
Dave Asprey, The Bulletproof Executive, developed the diet by starting from scratch and thinking, "What are the optimal things to eat whether cavemen ate them or astronauts ate them?” For Dave it didn't matter. He asked what foods bring about the best health and the best lifelong longevity and that's where he started. It turns out that what he built with "the Bulletproof diet over the years was very close to Paleo but the role of mycotoxins and a few other toxins isn't accounted for in Paleo."
The Bulletproof diet consists of foods which naturally have the least occurring toxins and then uses cooking techniques that introduce less toxins. At the end of the day, it is an anti-inflammatory diet that has about six or seven other ways it works that are different than, but complimentary to Paleo.
Check out both ways to health and see if one or a combo of both will work for you. It has changed my life.
