Announcement: Important Information About Recent Website Issues

Please take a few moments to read the following important message. You may have noticed that Mark’s Daily Apple and PrimalBlueprint.com have been under construction the past couple days. This is the result of both websites having been victims of a cyber attack. Since the attack, my technical support staff has isolated and eliminated all […]

Introducing The Primal Blueprint: Updated and Expanded Paperback Edition

With strong sales of the original hardcover Primal Blueprint book over the past three years, I was honored by a request from mainstream retailers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.) to produce the Primal Blueprint in paperback. Piece of cake, right? Get rid of those couple annoying typos, edit a bit here and there, then fire […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ll admit I love Thanksgiving. I love the ritual of coming together as a family – often with close friends adding to good company. I enjoy spending the day cooking and sharing food with the most important people in my life. I appreciate the modest but meaningful dimensions of the tradition – a time fully […]

Mark’s Daily Apple Server Issues

Apologies to everyone that has had a difficult time accessing Mark’s Daily Apple in recent days. Due to high traffic volume and technical issues I don’t begin to pretend to understand, we have experienced some site outages. Please hang in there as my team resolves this problem. Thanks, everyone!

Introducing the New Primal Blueprint Food Pyramid

When I got involved with this blogging thing, I figured I’d stick with it for a year or so and then run out of things to say. 365 posts in 365 days seemed like a tall order by itself, let alone maintaining such a schedule into perpetuity. I felt I had something to offer people, […]

Announcement: Book Launch Update

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone again for your tremendous support during the 21-Day book launch, and let you know how it all panned out. The book release was a huge success. It didn’t make the NYT list (yet) but not for lack of trying. An industry insider shared with me […]

Dear Mark: “Transformation” Edition

I don’t usually stick a Dear Mark post in the middle of the week, but it’s not every day that I receive a barrage of questions on a single topic from dozens of insistent readers demanding answers. Immediately after yesterday’s launch of the 21-Day Total Body Transformation, I began receiving emails from hesitant readers. Some […]

Introducing The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation

UPDATE: The special offer outlined in this blog post has come to an end. Many thanks to everyone that participated in this book launch offer. Grok on! After The Primal Blueprint was released in 2009 I started receiving recurring back-handed compliments along the lines of, “Wow – really comprehensive work Mark, great detail and excellent […]

The End of the 2011 Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge

Well, it’s been 30 days, and the Primal Blueprint Challenge is now over. I don’t know about you, but I’m completely exhausted. This happens every single time we do a challenge. I figure, since we’ll be running contests and awarding prizes and using lots of reader-created content, that I’ll have a month “off” to relax. […]

Contest Poll: Primal Blueprint Workout Video

At the start of this 30-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Workout Videos. And you responded with 17 top-notch clips. Boiling the submissions down to the top three was no easy task. My crew and I discussed at length what made up a good fitness video. Was it fun and entertaining? […]

It’s time for you to decide another winner! At the start of this 30-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos. MDA readers got right to work. As a result, YouTube has never seen better looking food. As you might imagine, my crew and I had a tough time narrowing the […]

Contest Results: Show Your Primal Dish

A few weeks ago I asked you to share the best Primal recipe you’ve found on the internet outside of Mark’s Daily Apple. There were over 600 submissions! A few days later I held a contest asking you to pick one of the recipes in that comment board, whip it together at home, snap a […]

Contest Results: What Does Primal Living Look Like?

We know from last year that Mark’s Daily Apple readers live across the world. But what are all of you up to? Apparently you’re standing at work, playing, dancing, lifting heavy things, and hiking in the great outdoors. You’re cooking, getting some sun, napping and spending time with family. You’re rolling around in mud, leaping […]
