10 New Primal Blueprint Books (Plus a Prize Package Giveaway)

DSC01191 2

As I mentioned back in my New Year’s postPrimal Blueprint Publishing has launched, and my team and I are on a mission to change lives, one book at a time!

Last month, we released Mira and Jayson Calton’s Rich Food, Poor Food, and early reader feedback has been incredibly positive. With ten more books either nearing release or in development and with many of you emailing me asking for details, I thought I’d take a moment to share with you what I have in the pipeline. Whether you’re just starting or are a Primal veteran, I think there’s something here for everyone.

Prize Package Giveaway

I’d love to hear what you think. In the comment board below, let me know which of the ten books below you’re most excited about and why, and tell me your idea(s) for a book you think Primal Blueprint Publishing needs to publish. Do those two things and you’ll be entered to win all eight Primal Blueprint books pictured to the right. The lucky winner will be chosen at random. This contest ends at 11:59 pm, Thursday, Mar. 28. Many thanks to everyone that shares their thoughts and, in so doing, helps me make better books for you.

First up, a look at the books with 2013 release dates:

The Hidden Plague, by Tara Grant. This book is for sufferers of Hidradenitis supprativa, a painful skin condition that is poorly understood by the mainstream medical community and strongly associated with the Standard American Diet. Tara suffered for decades before taking matters into her own hands, modifying her diet, and curing herself. There are an estimated 12 million sufferers of this condition in the USA, with many of them unaware of their condition. Tara provides a field guide to managing and overcoming this disease using evolutionary health principles.

Primal Cravings, by Megan and Brandon Keatley. Well the title says it all here! Welcome back all the comfort foods that you’ve disciplined yourself to avoid in pursuit of Primal/paleo dietary principles. This creative, beautifully photographed book is the work of Brandon and Megan Keatley, Crossfit trainers in South Carolina who have dabbled and experimented and reclaimed some of the most indulgent foods you can imagine as Primal/paleo approved! See for yourself, starting with the delicious burger on the cover!

Paleo Primer. This book from the British couple Keris Marsden and Matt Whitmore sets forth the Primal/paleo living principles in a fun, simple manner, making it a great book to introduce newcomers to the movement. It’s filled with creative and delicious recipes, and memorable, humorous cartoons that capture the essence of Primal/paleo living at a glance.

Upcoming Projects

Here’s a look at some exciting projects in development for 2014 release:

Death by Food Pyramid, by Denise Minger. Denise has done numerous guests posts on MDA (Will Eating Whole Grains Help You Live Longer?, Will Eating Red Meat Kill You?), and has her own avid following at her Raw Food SOS blog. Denise has been hard at work for a great many months now on an exquisitely researched expose on how “Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics, and Shady Special Interest Groups Have Conspired to Ruin the Health of America”,  and what you can do to avoid succumbing to such bad influences. She absolutely skewers the bestseller The China Study for their flawed data collection and distorted conclusions, and generally goes to great lengths to set the record straight about the flawed conventional wisdom we have been fed our entire lives.

The South Asian Solution, by Dr. Ronesh Sinha. Dr. Ron, an internal medicine specialist in Los Altos, CA, is doing some great stuff in the Bay Area, treating high risk South Asian patients and Silicon Valley employees with unique solutions that respect the evolutionary health model. South Asians, who are mostly Asian Indians, are one of the most insulin resistant ethnic groups on the planet, with rampant diabetes and early heart disease. His approach has successfully engaged and motivated South Asians to improve their health and reduce their risk while still respecting their cultural lifestyle preferences.

Primal Pregnancy, by Michele Blackwell, MD: This respected Ob/Gyn from Webster, Texas provides a detailed manual for a healthy and successfully pregnancy and childbirth, with a focus on integrating modern medical advice while still adhering to Primal living principles. Dr. Michele will cover a wide range of topics, including fertility, successful conception, all the trimesters, a healthy birth, nursing, and recovering your old self by the time the little one’s first steps are taken.

The Primal Prescription. In this hard-hitting expose on America’s dysfunctional health care system, Dr. Doug McGuff, fitness author and emergency physician from Seneca, South Carolina details how we came to spend over 7 trillion dollars per year on health care, yet rank 49th world wide for health outcomes and life expectancy. Dr. McGuff uses the concept of “signal disruption” to demonstrate how top-down controls have created an unholy alliance between the Government, Big Pharma, Big Agra, and Medical providers to create the ultimate “sick care system”. You will see how government intervention allows Big Agra to create the diseases that Big Pharma produces drugs for, so that doctors can “manage” your illness, so that you can stay just well enough to remain addicted to what made you sick in the first place. Having detailed the road to health care serfdom, Doug will show you the way out. By focusing on yourself and applying Primal lifestyle, dietary and exercise principles you will learn how to extract yourself from the belly of the beast, and enjoy the vibrant health that is your birthright.

Primal Woman, by Carrie Sisson. As I hinted at in a recent post, Carrie is shaping a story that touches on subjects of her particular interest and expertise: aging gracefully, dealing with empty nest syndrome, sorting through misinformation about menopause and hormones that women are subjected to, and fine-tuning the Primal living style from a female perspective. Carrie has a degree in Spiritual Psychology and injects a mystical, spiritual element to some of the everyday topics at hand. I can’t wait to read this! (Nope, I’m not even allowed a peek just yet…).

Perfect Balance, a Primal Approach to Overcoming Negativity with Food, Dieting, and Body Image, by Emily Deans, MD. Dr. Deans is a Massachusetts psychiatrist who explores the causes behind out modern obsession with and, for many, dysfunctional relationship with food. By hormonally, psychologically, and metabolically disengaging from processed food dependency, those who struggle with food issues have a better chance to heal from the psychological factors that contribute to their condition. Perfect Balance helps the reader eat and enjoy great, wholesome, natural foods without trending into a neurotic need to adhere to a Primal or paleo-style diet.

Primal Endurance, by Mark Sisson. Yep, I’m going back to my roots, this time to tell enthusiasts who insist on pursuing extreme endurance goals how to do it right! First and foremost is how to “go long” in training and racing without being a carb addict. Yep, it’s possible to be a high-functioning endurance machine when you become truly fat and keto-adapted. This refreshing concept is raising interest in the staid endurance community, as folks like Ben Greenfield, Dr.’s Phinney and Volek in The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance, and even the world’s foremost endurance exercise physiologist, Dr. Timothy Noakes of South Africa, are out on the cutting edge spreading the word.

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. I’ve been following Denise Minger’s posts at Raw Foods SOS for some time now – especially enjoyed her critiques of the China Study (book). This is one book I cannot wait to read.

    I’d love to see Chris Masterjohn get published by PBP, something debunking the cascade error of nutrition science and offering solid, scientific bases for ancestral WOE(Primal/paleo/Perfect HealthDiet/WAPF).

  2. I would love to read Primal Woman.. it just sounds like such a powerful book for women. Most of the Primal blogs and websites tend to gear the Paleo diet and lifestyle towards men. So I’m excited to hear a woman’s perspective on it all. I am woman, hear me roar! ;-) I also think a great seller for y’all to publish would be a paleo friendly restaurant guide. It would include appetizers, entrees, deserts etc.. from various well known restaurants that are suitable on a paleo diet. I think that’s the hardest thing for my family and I.. we really enjoyed going out to eat before. But, now it seems like we have a hard time enjoying our meals out due to figuring out what ingredients we can and can’t eat. It’s always.. “hold the cheese, the sour cream, the bread and everything else besides the meat and veg, thanks!” haha! It would be great to have a game plan upon entering the restaurant so we could enjoy our time out together. Thanks alot!! I’m excited to see what’s to come of the publishing company!!

  3. It is really difficult to choose one book from those listed. I am excited about several of them; see which ones and why below.

    I am excited about Death by Food Pyramid because so many people are still living the conventional wisdom lifestyle and are unaware that they are killing themselves; because of this I’m excited about The Primal Prescription that will further educate and shows people a way out of their sickness cycle.

    I am excited about Primal Pregnancy because people’s long-term health starts in the womb. If only our pregnant women knew how important their health was to the health of their unborn child. I am also excited about Perfect Balance because so many women that I know, including myself, struggle so much with body image and negativity surrounding food. It is nice to see a book that specifically addresses these issues.

    I would like to see a comprehensive book written that address brain and nerve system healthy and longevity, written in a way that the general public doesn’t need a dictionary to understand and laying out specific action items that can be maintained throughout a person’s life.

  4. I have the cookbook and am really looking forward to reading the rest of these. Integrating changes in my life has been really pretty easy so far and already i have lost weight and am more fit than i have been in years.

    Life is exciting.

  5. I’m looking forward to Primal endurance. I’ve been having some trouble with consistency in my fitness goals.
    As for future projects, I’d like to see full workout and meal plans that can work together. Examples of a workout plan plus pre and post workout snacks it meal options, etc.
    On another note, I am so very happy to have found this site! It is a great tool that I will likely use for years to come!
    Thanks to everyone involved!

  6. I can’t wait to read Denise Minger’s book. The truth needs to be told.

    Autoimmune diseases are on the rise, and they have hit close to home. I would like to have a book on anti-inflammatory lifestyles from a source I can trust. I want to see the science behind the recommendations.

  7. I’m excited to explore the Primal Cravings book. As a newcomer to the Paleo lifestyle I’m always looking for conversions to the food I used to enjoy.

    Since I spend 80% of my time travelling I’d like to see a book in the future on paleo on the go.

  8. I am looking forward to Primal Primer. I want to start living this way but I need help! I think a great book could be Practical Primal, living it in the family. I have a large family with young kids and need kid-friendly ideas. Thanks!

  9. I am interested in Primal Woman because all of us gals can use some nutritional ammunition for combating hormone changes and cycles. I would never want to have to take the hormones that Docs prescribe and I think we should all be aware of nutritional alternatives. Also, any book that can address recipes for diabetics or any of us that battle blood sugar issues. Lastly, anything about how to get to an alkaline state since from my reading, this seems to be the foundation for good health.

  10. I’ve started doing crossfit this past year and it alone has made a huge difference. I’m also getting into rock climbing and that is a complete blast. The one part I’m still lacking on is my diet. I’ve gone on and off the primal plan and do like how it feels but I’d love to read up on it more, if given the opportunity.

    I’m most excited about The Primal Prescription because it’s something I’ve been interested in for a while, the influence of big pharmaceutical companies, and other companies as well, have on our lifestyle and how it can very negatively impact us.

    A book I would love to have it something bringing in more of the biochemistry of how the primal diet gives us what our body needs compared to other diets. Not just a “high carb typical American diet” either, but a lot of other diets such as Atkins, Vegetarian, etc. A big plus would be if it was as unbiased as possible, too. Just listing out the data and the possible implications of the data.

  11. I’m excited to see the Primal Pregnancy book. The timing is uncanny, because over dinner last night my daughter and her husband let me know that they’re planning to start a family next year. We also spent much of the meal talking about being primal. My wife and kids know what it is and kind of what it means from watching me, but this was the first time any of them approached me with an eye towards taking the (primal) leap.

    As for ideas, I think many of us still struggle with play. I’d love to see a simple book on ways to incorporate more play into our lives, especially with younger children.

    Ted wrote on March 27th, 2013
  12. Really looking forward to Primal Cravings. Sounds great!

    As for what I’d suggest for future books – maybe something for teenagers and/or young folks just moving out on their own with no experience of cooking or planning for meals and helping them come to grips with that in a paleo/primal fashion. To budget!

    torie wrote on March 27th, 2013
  13. I’m most excited about Primal Woman. There are so many influences on hormonal balance that I don’t feel that we really understand.

    I would love a book that addresses thyroid function better. I’m new to primal eating after discovering a gluten sensitivity. I’m hopeful that my new lifestyle will help assist my hypo-thyroid issues. A book aimed at Paleo for Kids would be great too.

    Paula wrote on March 27th, 2013
  14. These look fantastic! I’m so excited! I work for a healthcare company and I think to myself every day how much the SAD is affecting costs of healthcare, quality of life, and how over medication is a business that is negatively affecting so many lives. I am very excited to read The Primal Prescription. It looks like the perfect book to back up so many thoughts I’ve had about the dramatic trends in healthcare. I am also really excited about Primal Pregnancy. I’m not pregnant or married or anywhere close to having children, but when I am, I KNOW I will turn to that book and that’s what makes me excited about it.

    As for a book idea Primal Blueprint Publishing should consider, the first idea that popped into my head is based off of a book I relied on when I did eat according to the SAD and was a calorie counter. I really liked the book Eat This, Not That because it was a small book I could carry with me that delved into the nutritional labels of grocery store foods and looked at restaurant menus. I realize that the primal blueprint neglects packaged goods etc. but I do think it would be interesting for an investigation into items that seem/are PB friendly, such as frozen vegetables, dark chocolate, meat producers/packagers, etc. and investigate which are the most PB friendly. It is almost an investigative look at foods from the raw materials all the way to consumers purchasing. I often find myself writing down brand names I see in MDA such as the best dark chocolate, nut butters, cheeses that really are grass fed, oils, etc. and it would be really convenient to have some of these in a small easy-to-grocery-shop-with book. Included in the book could be a look at which restaurants really cook according to primal standards, for instance, not using vegetable oils, using organic ingredients, etc. This idea stems from when I’m not eating at home according to my normal routine but instead I’m traveling for work or something. I know what foods to buy, I just wish I knew which had the Official PB Seal of Approval.

    Also, continuing with the theme of one day when I have children, I think it would be great to have a book that explains to a child why it is so important to eat healthy. This might make it easier for a child to go along with eating according to the PB.

    Just some thoughts! I’m really looking forward to the books and Primal Blueprint Publishing!

    • Also, (sorry for the short novella on my thoughts) I’m very excited about Primal Women by Carrie Sisson, but I really hope it’s not just focused on older women, menopause, and aging. I really hope there is a strong focus on hormones, puberty, and younger women as well. I know I devoured the information in MDA regarding birth control pills, menstrual cycles, and hormones because my body experienced dramatic changes when I went primal. There is so much bad information out there on this topic, I would really love a consolidated source of info on how a woman’s body should be acting.

      Emily E wrote on March 27th, 2013
  15. Wow! I want ALL those books! Seriously!! But if I had to pick just one I’d say right now it would be The Primal Prescription because I like to stay informed on what’s going on with Big Pharama, Big Agra and what I can do to empower and protect myself from ever falling into their traps!!

    I would also like to see a book that really goes into depth about digestion/digestive issues, how to help diagnose what you may have and natural Primal ways to correct digestive imbalances.

  21. Mark, I’m looking forward to reading Primal Endurance. I personally have found that although these days I mostly engage in high-intensity short-duration training, I still thrive on going long (Whether cycling, climbing, or anything). By following your recommendations for my nutrition I’ve found that I don’t suffer at all during endurance events.

    A book I’d be interested in reading is “Sustainably Primal” or “Primally Sustainable”. I read an article you wrote on the environmental impact of eating primally and although I have zero actual information on the subject, it seems to me that if 8 billion people shifted from a grain-rich diet to a protein and fat-rich diet, we’d need exponentially more land to raise meat. So, I feel good physically with my improved nutrition (primal) but I would be interested in optimizing my food sources to reduce the impact, environmentally.

    Keep up the great work! I refer all of my friends, whether they’re interested in primal (or paleo) or have no desire to switch from the S.A.D., because you always teach me something I didn’t know, with a writing style that keeps me reading.

    Kevin wrote on March 27th, 2013
  22. I am new to the primal arena, and am making slow transitions and trying to bring my family along with me, this site is awesome!

    Most interested in: The ‘Primal Prescription’ book that will be an immediate buy for me. The doctor has long frustrated me – they treat symptoms, not promote health. Don’t tell me to take a pill so I stop getting sinus infections, help me figure out how to prevent it in the first place!

    Book idea: I would love to see a ‘sneaky’ Primal cookbook featuring recipes that you can feed your family and guests without them realizing they are dining Grok-style.

  23. Very much looking forward to Primal Cravings, I love the Health-Bent blog.

    I would be really interested in a book that explores a primal approach to work and career development. So many of us go to college and graduate school even with the best of intentions to engage in meaningful work. Yet, so much of corporate America does not seem to support, much less accommodate a primal lifestyle.

    Cheers,
    Paige

    Paige wrote on March 27th, 2013
  24. Wow! Just wow! I want to read just about all of these! My top one is probably Primal Woman – I will definitely read it as soon as it comes out. In all honesty, I’m not sure I am interested in the mystical, spiritual aspect, though. I hope that I will get a sort of wise “primal big sister” or “primal gal pal” out of it – I’d really like to hear personal experiences and stories from Carrie.

    I’m also excited about Death By Food Pyramid – more really important work from Denise Minger, along with Primal Pregnancy and Primal Cravings. Tara Grant’s The Hidden Plague doesn’t directly apply to me, but as I have found my own skin condition (rosacea) almost completely resolved after going primal, I will likely find this one to be an interesting as well.

    Finally, I have a book suggestion that’s been on my mind for a long time. My favorite section of the PB was the part where Mark described three days navigating his busy life at home and traveling, providing details of his food intake, activities, and exercise. This section was the most inspirational to me in that it made the lifestyle accessible, with reasonable, small compromises. (Yes, you, too can be Primal even if you don’t live in a cave, even if you own a computer, and even if you have to eat in the airport sometimes.) This “showing” of the lifestyle was and is invaluable to me.

    I would really love to read a book full of these detailed everyday experiences of “Primal Living in the Modern World” – either all from Mark and Carrie, or maybe even from other well-known figures in the Primal/Paleo world. It could focus on all kinds of social, family and work situations – picky kids, parties with vegetarians, brutal weeks at work, etc. Most importantly, I think it should be written not as a how-to but more of a sharing of experiences – i.e., less on “you just need to do this” and more on describing “this is what I did in that situation.”

    Thanks for reading!

  26. I think I’m most excited by the Paleo Primer. I’ve been following the Primal ways for coming up on a year and the thing I love the most is the vast wave of information that’s available on this website. I’m constantly exploring the archives and learning new things that help me move away from my conventional wisdom conditioning. At the same time, it is tough to retain all of this so I usually take the time to reread the basic intro articles over and over again. At the end of the day, it’s the basic principles that I need to know and follow, and I just happen to enjoy filling in the gaps of little detailed questions. It seems like the Primer would satisfy that need for basics.

    If I had to write a book that’s most relevant to my journey, it would be Primal Family. I would want it to focus on the things that are tough for a busy, primal-minded adult to do. I love exercise, but I can only squeeze it in if I wake up really early in the morning. Gyms? Sorry, can’t afford it so here are a ton of quick bodywiehgt exercises that can be modified easily. And when I get home, do I get to lounge about and just watch some TV? Nope! It’s baby time. Got to play with baby (maybe think up some caveman games?), got to clean the house, and then got to try and make a delicious primal meal without spending hours in the kitchen.

    For me right now, this is life and I piece these things together from the site and other resources, but to have it all in one life saving guide would be terrific!

    Many thanks for all of the resources you and your site provides,
    Joe

  27. I’ve been eating primal for about 3+ weeks and have lost almost 10 pounds – expect things to level off soon, but it was a nice boost as I kept reading. I am gradually adding the exercise, but I am waiting for a hip replacement in a couple of months so only do what I can.
    I am trying to help my husband eat prim-ally too (he has already had a heart attack), but his problem is night time cravings so the book Primal Cravings, interests me most at the moment. Any ideas for tasty goodies to leave in the fridge for him would be great.
    Thank you so much for http://www.marksdailyapple.com & the Primal Blueprint. It is the first way of eating that has made sense to me and it works.

  28. The Hidden Plague, because so few people connect their skin, an organ, to their overall health, so seeing how what they eat can affect that should be a real eye opener to some people.
    Along the same lines, a potential book for Blueprint to publish would be something along the Skintervention lines; the connection between food and skin health, as it feeds quite nicely into Mark’s ‘LGN’ theme – and it will get more people to look into their eating who wouldn’t necessarily be interested in exercise and health [sad to say].

  29. Thanks for some great titles coming soon. All of the books sound interesting. However, I think Primal Endurance sounds like the best for what I want to learn about. I’m sure I will enjoy Primal Cravings though.

    Idea – I’d love to read about Chinese medicine and/or Homeopathy to understand how this could be incorporated into your life as needed – to keep from getting sick, high energy levels etc.

  31. It’s hard to decide on just one, quite a few of them look really interesting! I think the ones I would be most interested to take a look at would be Primal Cravings, Primal Women, and Perfect Balance. Looking into the more spiritual and psychological aspects of diet and food is really interesting to me :-)

  35. I’m most excited to ready Death by Food Pyramid, especially since the modern dietetics attitude toward paleo has actually led me away from making that a career and into something that is not science based in name only, but in actuality. The cookbooks look great too, I’m always on the lookout for good cookbooks.

    I think a book on raising children paleo would be a great future topic, especially touching on and refuting the arguments most people put up in reaction to the topic.

  36. Since I am just now looking into primal/paleo, The Primal Blueprint looks fascinating. As far as a new book, I would be interested in anything that would speak to newbies. The whole idea of primal/paleo interests me, as my daughter has introduced me to the basic concepts.

    Kay Arbuckle wrote on March 27th, 2013
  37. Definitely “Primal Woman” – not that any of the other paleo books out there (including yours!) aren’t helpful, but a lot of them are written by men with a man’s perspective/experiences. I also love the idea of a holistic approach to living primal as a woman.

    As for book ideas, I think something geared towards tweens/teens and the paleo lifestyle (not just diet and exercise, but also similar things to what is in your “Primal Connection”) would be great.

  39. I am looking forward to reading Primal Woman; I don’t think there is enough information about how diet can influence changing hormones/perimenopause and the resultant changes in our bodies as women age. It’s been difficult to bring the kids (ages 10,13) on board with the Primal lifestyle. I wonder if children and their growing bodies actually have a higher need for carbohydrates than adults and whether research really supports the same protein/fat/carb ratio diets for growing, active children as adults.

  40. I am actually excited about 2 of the books. The Primal Blueprint, as I haven’t had the opportunity to read it. I saw in the photo the Primal Blurprint Quick & Easy meals and that is the second book I’m excited about. I am always having to borrow it from the library and don’t get to borrow it long enough to try all the recipes.
