I will be speaking at a CrossFit Genesis sponsored event in Roseville, CA on Tuesday, October 20th. If any Mark’s Daily Apple readers can make it I’d be thrilled to have you drop by. Read the promo flyer copy and all the event details below:
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet Mark in person during his Northern California media tour. Mark’s extensively researched masterwork cuts through the confusion, hype and flawed Conventional Wisdom about eating and exercising with a simple, evolution-proven program based on ten simple, practical Primal Blueprint behavior laws. As soon as you “go Primal” you will enjoy immediate results in the form of improved energy, athletic performance and immune function. Long-term, you will be able to effortlessly reach and maintain your ideal weight without the struggling and suffering that is so common with the mainstream approach.
This single evening could change your life—and quite possibly save your life! Mark will have copies of the Primal Blueprint available to personally autograph for everyone in attendance, and engage in extensive Q&A about losing weight effortlessly, overhauling your diet, and getting much more out of your training program in far fewer hours than you might think!

College students and healthy lifestyle. On the one hand it seems like the ultimate contradiction. Pizza boxes, Red Bull cans, Doritos bags, beer bottles, Captain Crunch at every cafeteria meal. They’re as much a cultural vision of college as John Belushi’s sweatshirt. If there were a Primal no man’s land, you’d think the residential campus experience would at least be a top contender. Nonetheless, college needn’t be the physical wasteland it’s made out to be. And, let’s be honest: most students do not really live/eat/drink this way. As many students exercise regularly and eat decently as send their bodies through the wringer during their college careers. Nonetheless, campus living is its own kind of existence, and it presents its own challenges for maintaining a Primal routine. Not surprisingly, I get emails from college readers asking for tips on how to live a healthy lifestyle. Here’s one:
Do prisoners deserve a Primal diet? The Food Renegade covers a developing story about Illinois inmates battling to get more meat and less soy in their prisons.
New York did it, now it’s L.A.’s turn… The Los Angeles Times features the barefoot revolution in three new articles:
And if Vibrams aren’t your think, here’s something to add to your close-to-barefoot footwear arsenal: Soft Star Shoes.
Korean short ribs have an irresistible combination of sweet, salty and spicy flavors. Traditionally, the sweetness comes from sugar or corn syrup, usually half a cup or more. Thanks to Christian Chun, who submitted a fruit-based marinade for Korean-style short ribs to the Primal Blueprint Cookbook Contest, you can lose the processed sugar without losing a bit of flavor.
Fruit provides all the sweetness the ribs need. Christian’s recipe combines apple, Asian pear and kiwi. For a slightly different but equally delicious marinade, try using antioxidant-rich blackberries instead.
As part of our ongoing Primal Blueprint Fitness Video Contest reader Albrecht submitted his interpretation of Primal Blueprint bodyweight exercises (the current theme). He is in the running for a cash and prize package worth $400 and has a one in four shot of winning. If you’d like to be featured on Mark’s Daily Apple for a chance to win Primal gear read the Primal Blueprint contest details and submit your video (fitness or recipe), real life Primal story or Primal recipe soon!
I’d add a cautionary note to this video. Before you start doing backflips and throwing bodies around please make sure you know what you’re doing. It sure looks like fun but I’d hate for anyone to get injured in the process.
If you liked Albrecht’s Grok On! workout shirt you can get your own here!
Check back tomorrow for a Worker Bee culinary creation of a reader’s Primal recipe submitted as part of the Primal Blueprint Cookbook Contest (current theme: beef).
Have a fantastic Primal weekend, everyone!
