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. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Book Tour Update

An update on last week’s event announcement:

Early this week I hit the road for a mini book tour in Northern California. I started off shooting a spot on NBC’s local news affiliate (KCRA) in Sacramento (video above). Between this and a stop at another local news station (this time in Reno, NV) I had the pleasure of giving my first official Primal Blueprint PowerPoint presentation to CrossFit Genesis and other Primal enthusiasts in Roseville, CA. The response was overwhelming. It was unbelievably inspiring to meet people one-on-one that are turning their lives around with the PB lifestyle behaviors. You see, I get emails every day from readers with success stories; we have dozens of them showcased here, and many others have been featured on MDA. I cherish every one of these as life affirming tales of personal triumph. But there is something altogether different to have someone approach you, tears welling up in their eyes, to tell you that you’ve changed their life. It was an incredible experience for which I am immensely grateful.

I want to thank everyone that came out. And special thanks goes out to Phil Mancini at CrossFit Genesis for being such a gracious host. I had a wonderful time and hope to be able to do it again sometime.

As The Primal Blueprint begins to make its way on to store shelves I’ll be holding more speeches and events like this. In fact, in early November I’ll be back on the road. This time to San Francisco to film a spot on ABC’s “View of the Bay”. I am planning on setting up another speech or two, so if you’re in the San Francisco area stay tuned. I’ll be providing updates in the next couple weeks.

Check back tomorrow for another reader-submitted Primal recipe. Have a great weekend, everyone, and Grok on!

Very well done, indeed!

Because morning show interviews are always so short, it can be a real challenge to adequately get your message across. Especially when that message is so against the CW.

You, however, pulled it off nicely. Well done!

I’ve been putting the word out here where I live in Ontario. It’s a pretty small community but the word of mouth is pretty powerful around these parts. I’ll talk to anyone who’s willing to listen!

Hopefully you’ll start seeing some book orders from up this way Mark!

Same here. I got 3 people (myself included) to order, from NJ. I also managed to help several people using PB method lose weight, drop meds and live healthier. 🙂

Very nice interview actually. Though the first thing that came to mind after watching it was: that setup must’ve taken longer than the actual interview. lol.

But it’s short and simple, so I gave the link to all my friends and family. It’s a lot easier for them to watch a 3 minute clip and then look for more information.

I had the pleasure of being at this event in Roseville! The crowd had great energy and lots of terrific questions for Mark. Mark, you did a great job of trying to hit the key points of the program and address everyone’s questions. You made it fun and inspried many to get started on the program! Can’t thank you enough for coming out!!! So glad I got to be there:o)

I think you did a fine job for the short slot.

I tweeted it around cyberspace this morning.

I thought it was funny how she totally cut you short on the grains while giving you ample time on everything else. Otherwise, great interview!

Today is my one year anniversary of going primal. I’m 30 lbs lighter than I used to be and I feel great. Thanks, Mark

Sounds like she didn’t want to hear much about animal fats either. Oh well. Babysteps.

Great interview Mark. You really packed a lot into a short time segment. You have to laugh at “Tell us in 10 seconds or less why grains are bad.” You could have a multiple hour presentation on that, and she wanted you to do it in 10 seconds…or less. You pretty much did it though. Hopefully this movement picks up steam, and it wouldn’t surprise me considering all the studies being done saying that low carb is better than low fat for losing weight and metabolic syndrome. Everyone is still scared of eliminating grains but it is pretty evident that… Read more »

Great interview, Mark! I wish I knew you were stopping by in Sacto so you can sign my book!

First an anecdote.The other day at work(grocery store)I got into a chat with a middle aged man. His doctor told him he needed to lose 30-40 lbs. He seemed bewilderd at all the info out there on just how he could do that (CW). I wrote down your website and your book’s title and gave it to him. Second. Just finished “The Vegetarian Myth” by Liere Keith and this video made me think about he call to action. In this short clip Mark you made a cut in the soft flabby underbelly of the dominant-grain beast that rules our culture.… Read more »

good interview… wish you would have mentioned more about saturated fat, instead of recommending the usual avocado, olive oil, nuts, and seed fat… I know thats not what they want to hear though.

It was funny how she said that the diet is about fruits and vegetables and totally ignores the meat and fat.
Mark, you looked great – so healthy. Next time you should wear more of a fitting shirt to show off your body as you’re a walking advertisement for the diet.
