Ask Me Anything and Primal Blueprint Updates

This blog post is a two-parter. First, a progress update.

Last March I announced a number of exciting projects I had in the works. I’ve already checked a few things off the list: PrimalCon, held last April, was an amazing experience, and the response to The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and the Primal Blueprint Poster (released last month) was incredible. But I have a few more things up my sleeves for this summer, and I’m getting regular emails from readers wanting to know when they’re releasing.

If you aren’t familiar with the Primal Leap Kit, it’s a 30-Day program that will walk you through, step-by-step and day-by-day, the transition to a healthy, Primal lifestyle. The Kit will include a binder-bound Primal Leap Guidebook, a Primal Blueprint DVD (I walk participants through all 10 laws of the Primal Blueprint), an abridged audio book version of The Primal Blueprint (voiced by yours truly), The Primal Blueprint Guide to Foraging in the Modern World (a handy guidebook on how, where and what to shop for, including a Primal shopping list and many practical tips on being a “hunter-gatherer” in the 21st century), The Primal Blueprint Cookbook and likely a few other goodies. The Primal Leap Kit is nearing completion. I am shooting to have it available for you by mid-July.

As anyone that has read my book knows, Primal Blueprint Fitness is all about getting maximum results with minimal amount of effort. That may sound like hyperbole, but it’s not. Fitness doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming, complicated or even all that hard. PBF will show you how simple it can truly be.

The official (e)book is due out in one month, and will be 100% free to all Mark’s Daily Apple newsletter subscribers. In the meantime, prepare yourself to rethink exercise as you know it, and get ready to be armed with the tools and ideas needed for lifelong, functional fitness.

It’s called the Primal Essentials Kit for a reason. We’re many steps removed from the world Grok lived in. As such, there are certain key nutrients that I see as integral to a modern Primal lifestyle: vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics. I personally supplement with all three daily and recommend others do as well.

The Kit has been designed to be a cost-effective and convenient option for every Primal enthusiast and is slated to be released in about 2 weeks.

One final update: In a couple weeks’ time is getting a facelift and will become the go-to source (replacing for all Primal kits, books, posters, apparel and supplements. Stay tuned!

Ask Me Anything

This is an open offer to ask me anything. Leave a question in the comment board regarding the updates above or any other pressing question that’s been on your mind and I’ll attempt to answer them in next week’s “Dear Mark” post.

Thank for reading, everyone, and Grok on!

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. Dear Mark,
    I’m wondering if it really makes a difference what time of day you work out. I am NOT a morning person and I always (regardless of how much sleep) get up with just enough time to get ready and get to work. I’m most definitely a night person. In fact, due to having so much going on in my life, I usually end up working out around 11pm-midnight. And I’m just wondering if I’m missing out on something metabolically by doing it so late.

  2. Dear Mark…. I would love to have an insight into the world of allergies. How are allergies created. What can be done to reduce allergy symptoms. I do believe that this is possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  3. no doubt you are in great shape but lets look at the china study, do you not think you are digging your grave? Im asking as a nutrition student but with an open mind. Those not familiar with the china study-showed a very strong link between animal protein and animal fat consumption with the big killers, Cancer and CHD.

  5. I began the diet at 260lbs and I am now at 245. The diet goes on and off between this point and 241 for one embarrassing reason. Every time I get cranking to go lower I start suffering from diarrhea symptoms. Not sure what brings it on if it’s the cheese (I do eat a lot of it) or things like spinach and olives, green peas which I tend to add to the plates. Hope you can help me since I have been on the verge of going through medical tests thinking there was something wrong. It does not happen when I am eating carbs in regular quantities.
