The Best of Mark’s Daily Apple: June 2008

June was a momentous month. We began with the Definitive Guide to the Primal Blueprint and ended with the 30-Day Primal Health Challenge. In between we had great conversations on everything from cold water therapy, carb binging and grains to managing stress, ketosis and nightshades.

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 am a triathlete and am currently in training for my second Ironman. I have been a triathlete for four years, and have progressed well thus far. I have also run three marathons. I follow a Paleo diet very low carb now and am doing well, suprisingly better after dropping grains and dairy.

    I realize that triathlon might not be optimal for health, bust most other sports aren’t either. :) I wondered if the former tri guy had some advice for an endurance athlete as far carb intake during training, gels, etc., versus more natural things like honey, figs, etc. Also, recovery meals for endurance training, etc. Thanks in advance!

  2. Great question, Brett. It is one we have been getting quite frequently lately. Check back on Monday for Mark’s “Dear Mark” post. In it he will address the elite athlete/primal lifestyle conundrum.
