Complete Recovery Within a Week

There’s nothing like a receiving an email from a reader that chronicles their Primal journey. It makes my day. This one, from active forum member Timothy Williams, was sent in a couple months ago (and then an update last week). Timothy has seen tremendous results following the Primal Blueprint principles. Read his inspiring success story […]

Can You Be an Endurance Athlete and Primal?

By now you know I have a biased point of view that rigorous endurance training is antithetical to health. Yes, I competed and loved it for 20 years, so I get the appeal it has for so many, but these days my personal focus is on maintaining the highest level of fitness and health on […]

Done with Yo-Yo Dieting

I’m 33 and haven’t felt better in my whole life since converting to the primal lifestyle. I’ve been living pretty primal for the past 4 months now… prior to that I was still maintaining a healthy lifestyle according to “conventional wisdom” and was in decent shape. But back in March, 09, my wife was diagnosed […]

The Beginning of a New Life

Hi Mark, I’ve been Primal for about two weeks. In that time, I’ve learned more about how my body works, how ill-informed doctors can be, and how important movement is to health than in all my 38 years combined. This is both mind-blowing and humbling for me. I’ve always lived in my head. I never […]

The Strength to Recover: Wendy’s Powerful Primal Story

As a little girl, I remember the Slim Fast shakes, the diet pills that would “puff up” in your stomach, leaving […]

Pictures Don’t Tell the Whole Story

Mark, I just got back from my endocrinology appointment when I saw the latest contest. I’m no picture of health yet but things are looking a heck of a lot better than they did before I started on Primal Blueprint. I’ll start at the beginning. Six months ago my type II Diabetes was completely out […]
