Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Contest: Leave a Comment. Win Some Beef.

The Prize:

What’s more Primal than a juicy, locally farmed, grass fed steak? How about four juicy, locally farmed, grass fed steaks! Mark’s 30-day health challenge starts today, and it’s time to win some prizes.

The first prize comes from Texas cattle rancher, Beau Bendigo. Beau made the switch to Primal back in June. He has dropped 20 lbs since he started, he loves Primal living, he recently convinced his nieces to go Primal, and now he’s showing his enthusiasm by donating some steaks to kick off the challenge. Beau’s cattle live on a 100% grass grazed diet, and Bendigo Ranch practices low stress handling. For more on the benefits of grass fed beef, check out my post on the subject.

Three lucky winners will receive a 4-pack of Beau’s steaks. If you don’t win, but still want to order some juicy, grass fed beef, email Beau or give him a call directly at 605-538-4455.

Weekend Link Love – Edition 61

Scientists have figured out how to remove all the cocoa butter from chocolate and replace it with starch! Now your chocolate will never melt in your hand. Nor will it ever be chocolate. And I quote from the UK Times Online article, “It’s the food technologists’ holy grail.” (Thanks go out to reader Steve for the link.)

There are exercise gadgets and there is this thing. Warning, this product may not be suitable for work…or exercise, or anything else.

Want more evidence that you have the power to control your genes? Via The Independent, a Harvard study shows how yoga and meditation affect disease-fighting genes. (thanks, Mark)
