Caveman Blogger Fights for Free Speech and Internet Freedom

You may have heard that Steve Cooksey of Diabetes-Warrior.net received a letter back in January from the North Carolina Board of Dietetics and Nutritionists explaining to him that he and his website were being investigated. What was Steve doing wrong, you ask? Well, Steve was sharing his story with his readers and suggesting that they […]

Contest: Share Your Wisdom – Round 2

Last year I held a contest during the annual 30-Day Challenge called “Share Your Wisdom“. In it I asked Mark’s Daily Apple readers (you) for answers to 10 questions that would help newbies kick start their Primal lives. Things like “What do you think is the most important thing one should understand as they attempt to […]

Dear Readers: What Do You Want?

It’s Monday and that usually means another round of Dear Mark, but today I have something a little different in mind. Today I have some questions for you (along with a chance to win a Primal prize). Since I launched Mark’s Daily Apple way back in 2006 it’s been my goal to help 10 million […]

What I Did Over Spring Break

A few weeks ago I was offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to complete a long-standing bucket list item: an African photo safari. My new friend Vance from the USA who runs an intimate, very upscale lodge and an exotic species breeding operation in northern South Africa invited Carrie and me to accompany him on one of […]

Blogging from PrimalCon 2012 – Day 3

I’ve spent the whole weekend trying to wrangle a 9 1/2 week old puppy that I’ve only had for four days while interacting enough to cobble together a a few blogs that somewhat encapsulated the PrimalCon 2012 experience, and I think I did a fair job. I’m dead tired. Too tired to join an epic […]

Blogging From PrimalCon 2012 – Day 2

Day 2 of PrimalCon 2012 is done, and it was possibly the best yet. It wasn’t the fact that the sun came out and the clouds went away and we spent the day outdoors. And it wasn’t just because they doubled the burger portions for lunch and served Asian-cut short ribs, three kinds of salad, […]

Blogging from PrimalCon 2012 – Day 1

Today was crazy. Immediately after the welcome speech by Mark and Brad, and all the introductions, which went very smoothly, things started to change. Although “choices” was the theme of Mark’s keynote talk this year, the weather gave us very few. It was cold, windy, rainy, and thundery (sure, that’s a word); we had planned […]

Blogging from PrimalCon 2012 – Day 0

It was unseasonably cold for Southern California. Rain was on the horizon, and possibly even thunder. Were it not for a few sneaky signs that you’d have to know to watch for – the FiveFingers peeking out from jeans, the fact that no one was sitting, the faint whiff of ketosis lingering about – you’d […]

Success Stories in the Making: Updates and a Contest

Around 90 days ago, I unveiled a new feature for the site. Designed to motivate people into making public, formal declarations of intent to improve their health, Success Stories in the Making has by all accounts been a massive success. Something like 450 people are participating this inaugural year, which means that 450 people submitted […]

Lively groups of 50 folks enjoyed Phoenix, Portland, Seattle, Boulder and St. Louis events recently. It’s been such a great experience that Brad has added four new dates. Here’s the latest schedule: Los Altos, CA – Wednesday, […]

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 […]

Success Stories in the Making: The Big Unveil

Okay, is everyone as pumped as I am for this? Ever since reader Adam proposed the idea some weeks ago, I’ve looked forward to making it happen – as the MDA 2012 New Year Challenge no less! Now the moment has come, and it’s a big one. As Challenge participant Brandi put it, “It seems […]

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 […]

Community, Accountability, and a New Year Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone! Is everyone pumped for 2012? Resolutions made and in action yet? I’m coming at the new year with big plans, the first of which is a brand spankin’ new Challenge. I’ll get to that in a minute, but let me first say a few words about the power of resolutions. Experts […]

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 […]
