A few weeks ago I proposed to the MDA community that we leverage the growing popularity of Twitter to spread the message and to add an additional way for all of us to connect with another. And connect we have! After I published the post hundreds of people began following me on Twitter and conversing with one another by way of our Primal Community tag – #primal. Just look at some of the “#primal” tweets below.
I want to thank everyone that has been participating. I’ve loved following all of your Primal thoughts and experiences virtually in real time. It has been a joy to see how others are living like Grok.
I’m going to be frank. A quick look around at our general surroundings, whether it’s the flawed studies being parroted by the clueless media or your coworkers rolling their eyes because you didn’t eat the bun, confirms that we Primalists are a rare breed. Bouncing around between all the great blogs that actually get it makes for a bit of an echo chamber; fantastic information abounds, but we can easily forget how radical and extreme we seem to most people. I understand this, and I try to make the Primal Blueprint detailed enough for the nutrition buffs and accessible for the guy who maybe just wants to lose a few pounds. Scaring outsiders away might have been an effective tactic for Grok when resources and game were scarce, but we’re not about that here.
A few months ago I participated in a blog round-up with Gym Junkies in which I described my top 3 favorite exercises.
Well, they’re at it again. This time around they’ve asked bloggers and personal trainers what their #1 tip is for achieving fitness goals. Mine?
Make your easy workouts longer and easier, and your hard workouts shorter and harder.
I elaborate on this in the full-length article: 19 Incredible Tips for Getting the Body You Want.
Some of the others?
You’re not alone in your Primal adventures. As our traffic, daily emails, reader comments and other metrics attest to the number of Primal Blueprint adherents is increasing every month. This is especially apparent with the growing number of blogs either directly about or strongly related to the Primal lifestyle. Here are a few of our favorites followed by some killer Primal recipes that our readers (and now fellow bloggers!) have created themselves.
Number one on the list has to be Son of Grok. (He is family after all!) He is taking the Primal lifestyle to an entirely new level, and he is broadcasting his amazing changes to the world. Check out his story on our Primal Testimonials page and be sure to visit his site for some delicious recipes (links below).
