What you would like me to write about? Drop me a line in the comment boards with your questions and suggestions. As per my “Dear Mark” series of posts I began this year, the topic can be personal. So what are you waiting for? You’ve just been offered free personalized health advice. Hit me up with a comment!

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. I’d like you to write about AICAR study (in mice) and implications if similar results were found in humans (looks like it has been already tested in some diabetics). Thanks.

  3. Mark,

    I loved the video on preparing your salad. What are the odds of more of them? Maybe some grilling techniques, workout routines, and maybe one on sage advice about living a primal life style. Also, I really miss the forum. I know it was littered with spam, but their must be away to have one without all the porn spam.

    Thank you.

  4. I’d really like to know about the necessity (or lack thereof) for complex carbs on a paleo diet for people who workout a lot and participate in sports.

    People keep swearing to me I need to eat more complex carbs, even if it’s just sweet potatoes.

  5. Tee –

    I’m glad you liked the video. I definitely plan on doing more in the future. Thanks for the suggestions.

    The forum was a lot of work for me to maintain and I was looking for more people to be vocal in the comment boards so I got rid of it. If there was enough interest in a forum down the road I would consider adding it back.

    Kyle –

    I’ve written about this. Check these posts out:

  6. Mark,

    You may have already done this but I’m curious about eggs. I’m a vegetarian and you mention that use veggies should use eggs as our major protein source. How do you feel about egg yolks as opposed to egg whites? Are 4-6 whole eggs a day too many?
