Contest Poll: Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos

Done with Yo-Yo Dieting

I’m 33 and haven’t felt better in my whole life since converting to the primal lifestyle. I’ve been living pretty primal for the past 4 months now… prior to that I was still maintaining a healthy lifestyle according to “conventional wisdom” and was in decent shape. But back in March, 09, my wife was diagnosed […]

The Beginning of a New Life

Hi Mark, I’ve been Primal for about two weeks. In that time, I’ve learned more about how my body works, how ill-informed doctors can be, and how important movement is to health than in all my 38 years combined. This is both mind-blowing and humbling for me. I’ve always lived in my head. I never […]
