Skip to 48:45 I don't understand why he says no cheese(regardless of quality) and fermented foods don't a lot of people in the paleo community tout these as good?

He had this to say in the text that accompanied the video:
Foods like chocolate, nuts, coffee, cheese, and processed meats very frequently contain high levels of neuroactive chemicals made by the molds and fungi that inhabit them. Many of these are active in a parts per billion level. It???s one of the prime reasons that you will perform much better on a fresh & local diet. Processed foods usually contain detectable levels of toxic molds that affect your brain.
But my read of the text (still waiting for the video to load) is that he doesn't say to avoid all of these foods, but just to go for quality sources over cheaper ones.

The Bulletproof Diet includes recommendations to avoid foods that always have mycotoxins (cheese concentrates it, then adds more from the fermentation), but to go for quality in foods that sometimes have it, like nuts or coffee or chocolate. All three of those are high-mycotoxin-risk foods, which is why Bulletproof Coffee's weight loss effects are so dependent on getting good quality coffee.
