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 […]
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!
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, […]
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 […]
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! Just a quick announcement to remind you that the special offer for The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation ends today, October 24, at midnight. This is your […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. […]
I’d like to thank the 13 groups who participated in the Grokfeast Challenge this year. Your level of creativity, commitment, and enthusiasm serves as a hallmark for Primal living at its best. It’s been an immense pleasure reading and publishing your experiences on Mark’s Daily Apple. As good as they all were, only one group […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
We’re now three weeks into this year’s Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge. (PDF) How has your journey been thus far? Staying the course? Have you turned the corner on the low-carb flu? Have you ventured to try any of the “optional” mini-challenges? Hit up the comment board below with your progress report. I’d love to hear […]
I am very excited to announce that registration is now open for the third annual PrimalCon (Thursday, April 12 – Sunday, April 15, 2012), our 3-day Primal Blueprint health and fitness retreat held at the beautiful Oxnard Beach Park in Southern California. PrimalCon is a total immersion weekend experience of expert-guided workouts, play, leisure time, lectures and […]
If you want to lose weight, gain muscle, reduce stress, increase energy or just generally look and feel healthier you’ve come to the right place. Oh, and you can win lots of cool Primal gear, too. That’s right, it’s the annual Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge!
Who’s up for a challenge? I hope all of you are ready to get Primal because it’s that time of year again. Next Monday, September 12, marks the first the day of this year’s annual Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge!
Early last month I had the pleasure to interview John Post of team Gypsies. He and two other Primal dudes were dominating the ABC reality adventure show Expedition Impossible. Well, as many of you may know, the show is coming to an end… tonight! Here a few words from Eric Bach (the other brown headed, […]
I turned 58 last week and, as I usually do around my birthday, I took some time to reflect upon all that I have to appreciate in my life and all that my Mark’s Daily Apple and PrimalBlueprint.com team have accomplished in the last year. With that, I thought I’d hit a few highlights and […]
It’s the third and, sadly, final day of this year’s PrimalCon. Relive day one and day two here and here. And stay tuned for text, photo and video updates. 8:17 am: Morning warmup session with Angelo dela Cruz
