Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete.

There are a lot of ways to lose weight, but among the simplest, most effective of methods is simply cutting out the sugar (soda, snacks, pastries and prepared foods).

Not human liver.

This is Shinyai‘s photo of sea toad liver. Now you know!

Seriously, Just Take Some Omega-3’s, Would Ya?

Good fats are good for your brain: more evidence. Fish everywhere do not rejoice.

Not another Omega-3 study! Darn that Sisson and his Bees.

State of the Union
