The Essence of PrimalCon: Celebrate Primal Life with Your Tribe in 2014

It’s hard to describe in words how amazing the PrimalCon Vacation Tulum was, which is why we brought out master cinematographer Janèe Meadows down there to capture the magic on video! I urge you to take 75 seconds out of your day and watch this highlights show. It captures the essence of what I’ve been trying to create for the last seven years on Mark’s Daily Apple – a spirit of community and making new connections, a sense of adventure into the natural world, an appreciation of excellent cuisine, and a commitment to healthy, primal living. We have a beautiful PrimalCon Vacation Tulum summary page built with an amazing slideshow. You can also check out our Primal Blueprint Podcasts: In Episode 10 we recorded Darryl Edwards’s Tulum presentation on Play. In Episode 11 I recapped the Tulum event. And in Episode 13 we recorded Brad Kearns’s Tulum presentation on developing a peak performance attitude and mindset.

Wishing You Were Here!

This is just a quick note and a few photos coming directly to you from PrimalCon Vacation Tulum, Mexico!

Over 160 people from all over the world (England, Australia, Switzerland, Canada, New Zealand, Netherlands, Sweden, and across the U.S.) have come out for this event, and it’s been a tremendous pleasure meeting and sharing this incredible experience with all of them.

The bar truly has been raised here in Tulum, but we are prepared to top it at PrimalCon New York (June 5-8) and PrimalCon Oxnard (September 25-28) later this year. So come out and meet your tribe, learn from leading experts, play, have fun, relax, eat some of the best food you’ve ever eaten, and leave the weekend feeling rested, rejuvenated, and prepared to take control of your health for life. It’s what we do at PrimalCon. I hope to see you there. Grok on!

Introducing The South Asian Health Solution

SAHS 3D cropped 540On behalf of the author and the entire staff at Primal Blueprint Publishing, I’m pleased to announce the release of The South Asian Health Solution, by Dr. Ronesh Sinha. South Asians are some of the most sedentary, insulin resistant people on the planet, making India a global capital for conditions like diabetes and heart disease, with heart attack onset often significantly earlier in the 3rd or 4th decade of life. Dr. Sinha’s unique ancestral health-based wellness approach to achieving success in this very high risk population can be applied not only to South Asians living in India, the United States and across the world, but to individuals from any ethnic background. Dr. Sinha is an internal medicine physician in California’s Silicon Valley. He sees high-risk South Asian patients and runs education and wellness programs for big name corporate clients like Oracle, Yahoo!, and Genentech to name a few. He has taken patients from diverse ethnic backgrounds out of the high-risk, high body mass category and helped them reverse disease risk factors without medications.

The Big Unveil: Master Plans for 2014

unveil2Greetings, everyone! I can’t believe it’s time for another annual preview post… It seems like my Jan 1, 2013, “Make 2013 Your Best Year Yet” post just went live. I remember feeling excited and a bit overwhelmed at the announcement of our grand ambitions to expand the movement one year ago, but pretty much all the endeavors mentioned at that time have been actualized in a similar shape and form (you know what they say about stating your intentions clearly and specifically…). We’ve expanded PrimalCon to other cities, published some acclaimed books (Primal Blueprint Publishing now has 15 titles in print – and more to come in 2014, see below), have numerous expert presenters spreading the word at Primal Transformation Seminars across the country, and conducted three life-changing luxury retreats with Vanessa and Adam Lambert in Malibu. Finally, my visions of a Primal cruise have morphed into the first-ever PrimalCon Vacation at the five-star Dreams Tulum resort on the Mayan Riviera just several weeks away.

Last week I shared some of my plans for Mark’s Daily Apple blog posts this year, and you responded with enough ideas to keep me busy for a decade. I’ll be busy researching and writing this year, but I’ve got some other plans up my sleeve as well.

Here’s a quick rundown of my grand plans for 2014:
