Announcement: The Primal Blueprint Poster

Primal Blueprint PosterYou can now get a copy of The Primal Blueprint Poster. It is officially on sale for $14.95. The shipping and handling costs are on me unless you are outside of the U.S.

I think it’s a pretty cool poster if I may say so myself. Many thanks to Kristin, my ace designer, Farhad, and the other Worker Bees who helped complete it.

It’s 24×30 inches, fairly large as posters go. As you can see from the image (click to zoom in) the poster illustrates the core Primal Blueprint fitness, diet and lifestyle behaviors, with sections devoted to the 10 Laws, the Primal Blueprint Fitness Pyramid, Food Pyramid and Carbohydrate Curve.

Hang it in your garage, your rec room, your gym or anywhere else for inspiration and to help you “get Primal”! Click here to get your copy today.

Stay tuned for today’s regularly scheduled blog post!

You want comments? We got comments:

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. 1st.

    This would be good for anyone who needs constant motivation or a steady reminder of the base of the PB.

    • So if Charlie Brown received this in his Halloween basket, would he say “I got a grok.”

      • Oops, meant to put this with the next comment. doh!

  2. I count 5 Groks on the poster – 3 leaping, 1 spear-wielding and 1 rock boulder-hoisting.

    Nice. You can never have too many Groks.

    Great poster…although, in true primal fashion, perhaps it should’ve been etched on a stone tablet.

    Once you get past the enormous shipping costs, mounting problems and safety hazards of having a 20-pound piece of stone hanging from your wall…OK, bad idea.

  3. What about animal hide then? :)
    Shipping is a lot cheaper, shouldn’t be hard to mount.

    Might be a bit more than $15 however…

  4. Looks awesome! I may purchase this today. If I don’t, it will be very soon.


    When is Primal Leap coming out? I just remembered that this poster is included in the package so I will wait till then? If I remember correctly, its going to be out in about a month?

    Todd wrote on March 26th, 2010
    • Primal Leap isn’t slated to come out at least for another 6 weeks or so.

      Mark Sisson wrote on March 26th, 2010
      • Hi Mark, I am waiting for Primal Leap as well. Will I be able to get the whole package through

  5. I’m still confused about fruits and vegetables being at the base of the pyramid. Didn’t Grok have more access to animals? What becomes of the pyramid on the winter for Grok when those things aren’t growing?

    • It’s about the bulk/volume of the meal.

  6. ..given that most whom read this adopt a paleo or paleo type approach to life and given that a strong facet of h-g life was not letting the top dogs gets too big for their loin clothes i ask sincerely how come le poster is so expensive and the book such relatively low price please ?

    Simon Fellows wrote on March 26th, 2010
  7. How about a smaller size. Say 11/17 or something. This is just too big for certain places…actually most places. I would put one on my bullentin board at work if I had a smaller one.

    And I agree..the cost to book ratio is off.

    Jack Frake wrote on March 26th, 2010
    • Simon and Jake, the shipping costs and the cost of the mailing tube average well over $5. I’m picking that up – as opposed to charging $9.95 plus shipping.

  8. Ok,

    Shipping outside the US is $25. I have purchased lots of things from the States and I am fairly sure that there is no way shipping can come anywhere near costing $25 for a POSTER! If you put the price of shipping in the US into the poster, then there should be a cheaper international price coz you are not giving us ‘free’ shipping. I am not paying $25 in shipping. I pay that kind of shipping on a box with 3 or 4 books in it from amazon. I will wait till you have a bulk discount offer.

    Sam wrote on March 26th, 2010
    • I agree. I went to order straight away but the saw shipping to Australia was $25.

      At first I thought it was $25 total which I thought was reasonable.

      I have also order many things from the USA with much more reasonable prices for postage.

      I really really want one but I will not pay that.

      Lumpee wrote on March 27th, 2010
      • I agree as well. I live in Australia and regularly buy books from in the USA and have never paid more than $25 in postage (and I usually buy about 3 books at a time). This is why I am waiting for the Primal Leap. I hope this package will be available through otherwise I’ll not be able to afford to buy it.

  9. Disregard the naysayers Mark, a great initiative, every gym and office in the world should have one, or ten even.

    The amount of awesome FREE information on this site that changes lives and someone gripes about shipping?
    Your awesome – keep it up.

    Dan wrote on March 26th, 2010
    • I agree! Disregard those who complain! There is a plethora of FREE information on this site. I appreciate you, Mark!

      Ben wrote on March 27th, 2010
    • Hey Dan, we love the poster. Its not a matter of whinging about the price of postage. Some of us just simply cannot afford that kind of money. Perhaps you are well off, but I am not. You make it sound as though we do not appreciate Mark, but nothing could be further from the truth. I have bought his Primal Blueprint (through and will continue to try and buy whatever else he brings out (I am a massive fan), including the cookbook, poster, etc. But I have to be able to afford them first.

  10. Nice poster, will definitely pick one up at some stage. How much is shipping to Ireland?

    Senan wrote on March 26th, 2010
  11. Was this one of the freebies of ordering the books on the 17th? If not I’ll need to order one for my homeschooling classroom! :-)

  12. It was if you purchased 4 books I think. I really do want to get one, the price is just way out of my league – $40 in US currancy including postage, then there is conversion fees etc to add to that. Postage to New Zealand was $25, I guess it would be much the same to ireland

  13. I vote for a smaller size too.

  14. I’d like to hang onein the office breakroom, but being that
    i’m inthe medical industry, and folks here are firmly wedded to Conventional Wisdom things like low fat and running, I probably be made to take it down.

  15. Grok had this poster on the wall of his cave. 😎

  16. I really wish this was down loadable as a PDF- that would come in handy as well!
