Contest: Let’s Chat

phone callThe Prize:

Let’s talk. Seriously. I’ll call today’s winner.

The Contest:

Tell me why I should call you. Need help with the challenge? Maybe you have unusual obstacles you need to overcome, or you need help tailoring Primal living to the demands of your lifestyle (work, school, location, finances). Or maybe you’ve done great on the challenge and you’re ready to take Primal living to the next level with more specific advice on improving your meals and workout routines. In the comments section of this post, tell me who you are and why you want a one-on-one consultation.

IMPORTANT: Don’t leave your phone number in the comment board. I’ll contact the winner via email for a phone number.

Examples:

I hesitate to give you a specific example of what I’m looking for or I might see 50 comments emulating exactly that, but I can give you a few tips:

  • A little background info goes a long way.
  • Straight forward and honest is the way to go.
  • “I need to lose 12 lbs in 3 weeks. Help!” – Not gonna win.

Eligibility:

You’ve got to have a phone number.

The Contest End Time:

Midnight, tonight (August 26th)!

How the Winner Will Be Determined:

Executive decision. I’ll pick who I want to call. That’s the winner.

To track all the contests visit The Primal Blueprint Health Challenge Contest Page for daily updates.

Visit The Primal Blueprint Health Challenge for challenge details.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Haha this is an awesome challenge. Good luck to whoever wins the phone call, it sounds like fun.

  2. I’m a triathlete in training. I realize triathlons kind of go against the primal exercise plan & lifestyle (or do they have to?), but it’s my dream.

    I’d like to know how I can continue to use the Primal Blueprint (diet specifically) for optimizing my health & performance during the body abusing training.

    and/or

    What or how would you train differently if you were to re-live your career as a runner/triathlete again and still be at the same level of performance but not beat the hell out of yourself so bad?

    Thanks Mark. Love everything you produce!

  3. I’m a 24 year old Canadian Dudette who’s been following MDA for about 8 months, and living the philosophies for the last 4 months.

    I feel awesome and am happy to have a forum full of people that have similar ideas of what living a full healthy life is, but I still struggle in my ‘real-life’ social and family situations.

    I’d love some advice on remaining true to myself and what I feel is healthy and awesome, while balancing social and family opinions/feelings/obligations.

    Wicked Awesome Contest/Prize! Thanks for taking the time!

  4. I went from years of “clean eating” and chronic cardio to PB in June (10 weeks ago), and am so happy I did! I also took a break from any serious exercise for a few weeks to break my cardio addiction. At this point, I’m ready to get back into the gym (will renew my membership in September), get some good workout advice, tweak my diet more here and there, and learn more about eating well while on the road/doing extended travelling/and while visiting with family. I also have 4 family members that are doing either PB or Paleo, and would love to be able to set a good example for them :) What a cool prize!

  5. Mark,

    I have two kids, one is 5, the other is 2. I have only been incorporating primal eating into my life for the past year, so my 2-year-old eats whatever I eat, however my 5-year-old is not down with the program. I shudder to post all the grainy details of what my 5-year-old eats so I will save that for the call, but needless to day it is a terrible diet. What should I do? Go cold turkey (no pun intended)? One meal at a time? One item at a time? It is very frustrating.

  6. My mother has a fake knee and hip. For the last few years she’s been re-learning how to walk and gaining weight due to her inability to move much, along with a high carb/grain/sugar diet. She read your book and loved it, but for some reason isn’t willing to get primal! I think it’s fear of failure or unwillingness to give up certain frankenfoods. In any case, despite kicking ass in physical therapy, she’s having many complications with her knee and hip which I think a primal lifestyle could help resolve, if for no other reason than fat loss. How can I convince her? I’ve tried to gently bring up the subject of fat loss for her health but she gets very defensive – even though she agrees with me.

  7. Mark — Call my wife, please!

    I adopted a primal diet in January 2008. When I started, I was 204 lbs and 5′ 11″ tall. Now I pretty consistently weigh 165-170 lbs. I am healthier than I have been in years. I feel that I am a pretty good model of the health benefits that come from a primal diet.

    My challenge is that I cannot convince my wife to adopt a primal diet for herself and our son. She has a laundry list of modern illnesses in her family history, but she is quite healthy — although she and our son have had some asthmatic episodes in the last 2 years.

    She seems to think the primal diet is just a fad.

    Can you help me convince her?

  8. Hi Mark.
    I have been follwoing MDA for several months and love the way I feel and look! My coworker, Gordon, and I have been helping each other through the trials and tribulations of changing ones lifestyle. We are both doing great! Although we would love a call from you, our reason for entering this challenge is for someone else. Another co-worker has been skeptical of MDA. He needs our help and yours! He is a wonderful guy! Kind and Caring. He is having health issues and both Gord and I know that this lifestyle would do him wonders. A few years ago he lost a tremendous amount of weight, as did I, on weight watchers. I had since put it back on and so has he. We know that he would benefit greatly with a call from you…Gordon and I would sit in and we could do a three way intervention!!!

  9. hey mark,

    i am a personal trainer who has been living the primal lifestyle and also has been sharing and teaching this lifestyle to my clients. however i have a client who is vigan whose diet consists of a good 70% grains (the rest being nuts and veggies). i am having a hard time convincing her that she should go “grain free” but at the same time she is set in her vigan ways and wont eat meat or animal products. can she maintain a healthy diet off of just veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds? should i try to cinvince her that she should eat meat or at least go vegetarian and enjoy some animal products such as eggs? each of these questions seems to lead me to deeper questions. like if you say she can maintaina nutritious diet with just veggies, fruits, nuts and seeds what kind of meals could she make wiht that? as you can see i have a TON of questions (which is hard for most fitness professionals to admit) and i hope you pick me so i can guide my client to a healthy lifestyle (it’s my job!!! and PASSION!!!)

  11. I’m a competitive ultimate player who is gearing up ready for the Fall Series (sectionals, regionals and maybe nationals, if we qualify). I’m older than the typical player and working harder than most on conditioning, eating and clean living. I have devised an exercise plan for my team, which involves a lot of sprinting, jumping, interval training and cutting. Would love to chat about how to eat properly for and at tournaments as well as what training methods would work best for our sport. Speaking with someone who plays ultimate, knows the demands of the game and has a keen grasp on nutrition and fitness would really make my day.

  12. Truth be told, I’d rather you call my aunt and talk to her. She’s stuck in this “healthy grains are okay” rut, and as a consequence both she and her daughter weigh over two hundred pounds. (They haven’t gained recently, but they sure as heck aren’t losing.)

    She wouldn’t appreciate me giving out her phone number, though, so maybe you could give me some advice. My aunt is an incredibly stubborn woman who, after years of trying to explain the process to her, is still stuck in the grips of Conventional Wisdom (and a low budget – she’s convinced that she can’t afford not to eat grains.) Outside of bashing in her brains with a two-by-four, perhaps you could give me some advice on how to get through to her.

  13. Boy, do I need that phone call.

    I’m a 49-year-old female, struggling with my weight for the last 20 years. Whatever the diet, I’ve tried it. I’ll lose about 5-10 lbs, then stall. I have been between 200-210 lbs since my late 20s. What’s terribly frustrating is that all the diets and such seem to work so well for everyone else!!! My husband lost 25 lbs on South Beach; I lost 5. I’m almost scared to try anything new. I have your book, but need the push to commit to a new plan. As a new empty-nester, I now have the time to devote to a lifestyle change, but need the direction and the motivation to get it started.

    BTW, I don’t think we’re related, but I’ve always been amused that we share a last name!

  14. I would love some help from you! I have been eating in a PB way since June. For years I have struggled with low energy, blood sugar swings, and panic attacks. I am much improved – absolutely no more panic attacks, and energy is much more even. My one big issue at this point is adrenal fatigue – I’m at the point of having very low cortisol and DHEA. So, eating this way, I’m much more “even”, but my even feels so low. I’m having trouble exercising – am taking on the low, slow part – walking my daughter to and fron school – a mile away. How can I help myself heal in the timeliest fashion possible? The challenge I run into is that my energy feels so low that many times I want to use sugar for some energy.

    Also wanted to mention that my daughter’s asthma is MUCH improved – with high-dose fish oil, MSM, and avoidance of grains. She had a recent slip lately at a birthday party – believe me, she gets it now – she is becoming very good at making good choices for herself!

    Thanks for all your work – you are very generous with your blog and the info you share. I love your book too!

  15. Hi Mark!
    I am completely new to this, but I have been following you for awhile on facebook, and find this whole primal business very interesting..
    At 35 I am a mother to 3 children, and basically live a very active lifestyle. For the most part of my life I was an avid athelete participating in sports through high school, college, and beyond.. All of my children are very athletic as well, and as a whole we are very healthy. After the birth of my last child in Dec. of 1999 I began to struggle with my weight.. I put on a whopping 80 pounds during the pregnancy, and am still holding on to about 40 pounds of that. During the period between Dec. 1999 and Nov. 2007 I spent a small fortune on weight loss plans, supplements(ephedra.. and more ephedra..)meal delivery programs, weight loss clinics..etc.. the list goes on, but I’m sure you get the picture.

    In November of 2007 I made a decision to stop the madness, and get serious, so I embarked on a fitness journey, and became a member of a very popular online service for extra motivation.. After about a year and a half I had lost about 50 pounds… but it was torture..getting there and staying there. I am coming up on my 2 year anniversary and I have gained back about 15 pounds.. :( Overall I havent felt good lately so I had my thyroid checked… my grandmother had Hashimotos, so I thought it couldn’t hurt to check. My TSH levels were normal..which means maybe it’s my diet that is making me feel distracted, fatigued, irratible, and just plain awful.

    I started on the Primal lifestyle on Monday, and so far I can say that I am already feeling better.. I haven’t bought the book yet, but only because I can’t decide whether to buy 1 or 4.. :) If this works for me I want to share it with my friends..so I’m testing the waters so to speak.. :)

    I love the site, and have forsaken most of my regular reading material to “catch up” on this lifestyle. I have also been feeding my family Primal too..just haven’t referred to it as anything special yet.. of course they love it..what’s not to love. Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.. A call would be awesome! :) Thanks for all of the great information! The site is A+.

  16. Hi Mark,

    I live in LA so I’d rather chat over coffee (or a primal steak tar tar). Please don’t pick me for a phone call. Not that I wouldn’t love to chat over the phone with you!, But, I think many of the other commenters are more in need of your assistance or advice.

    Aaron Blaisdell wrote on August 26th, 2009
  17. Here is why I would like a phone call. I am a CrossFit Trainer at CrossFit Body Construction here in Tampa, Fl. I consistently struggle helping clients put it all together. I give countless sessions on eating in the Zone. I email shopping lists and PDF meal plans that are Paleo Friendly. I do 15 minutes after every class going around the entire gym asking “what did you have for lunch today” and critique each meal on its own merits.

    Still with all my knowledge and training, I still have issues getting clients to see the light. Most of the people I train will avoid fat like the plague, continuing their steady diet of egg noodles, bread, potatoes, and skim milk not knowing this is the exact diet that made them fat, and eventually will kill them in the long run.

    So I guess my biggest reason for putting a comment down is a non-selfish one. I can order your book myself. I can implement the changes on my own. What I need is some new ideas on how to bring it to my masses.

  18. Hi Mark

    My problem is similar to other posts on here. I am very new to the Primal Lifestyle and I really want to do that, make it my lifestyle.

    I lead a busy life with a 5 and 3 year old, work, sporting activities for myself and children, and my wife had her activities. My 5 year old son is starting kindergarten this year, so I will need to pack his lunch. I would love some ideas for primal kid meals and advice for my own personal primal lifestyle balancing!!

    Getting a phone call would be the ultimate inspiration to lead my family and I on the right primal lifestyle path!!

    Thanks for all that you provide daily!!

  21. Hi Mark,
    My wife needs the talkin to.. Its hard trying to eat primal when the wife and kids are very en”grained” in what they eat. I struggle to get my wife to try new things and also my 11 year old son (he eats totally by looks and texture). My 7 year daughter on the other hand would eat bugs (and has done so in the past) if they tasted good!

    It would be great to get everyone towing the same line!

  22. oooo so happy i found it!

    here’s why you should call me:

    well, it’s totally selfish, so maybe not me. sometime though it would be nice.

    i’ve done EVERYTHING to get the bod under control, INCLUDING gastric surgery. classic: lost 120, then gained 150. most recently joined OA and doing 12 steps. it helps with the compulsive eating, but not the diet, you know?

    i’m 48, perimenopausal, weight’s been all over the board: highest 330, lowest since childhood 150 (too thin for me really…i literally have big bones…wore my poor podiatrist out to shave my toebone). atkin’s works for me…or did. i think i’ve ruined my ‘golden shot’.

    i want to quit obsessing about what to eat. i’m a nut. it’s taking up my whole life, just trying to figure out how to get and stay a reasonable weight.

    now i’m looking into hypnosis. i’m really crazy with this sickness.

    can you help?

    LOVE the word “grok” by the way…did you ever read “Stranger in a STrange Land” by Heinlein?

    Peace,

  23. I’m a diabetic of 24 years who has managed to get off all my diabetes meds over the last 8 months by going as primal as I can (also off the statin). I hae other problems that I am trying to solve. My HDLs have always been very low, ranging from 24-35, but usually in the 20s, whether or not I am on a statin. So I have upped my fat intake to try and boost the HDLs. I’ve basically added coconut oil to my diet, which means that often, during the work week, I eat some coconut oil for lunch and feel satisfied with that (probably a couple of tablespoons). Is there anything else I need to do in addition to exercise? Also, I have osteoporosis. I’m spending 10-15 minutes out in the sun at lunch time now and body weight exercises (burpees and a kind of squat). I supplement with 2g of vitamin D and I’m eating grass fed beef. I have lab work done this Friday so next Tuesday or Wednesday I’ll get my latest lipid panels, A1c, etc.

  24. I’d love a phone call–could use your insight as to why I have such a hard time losing weight despite following the PB to the letter since April…probably due in part to my recently diagonosed hypothyroidism but that cannot be the whole story. However, I think there are much more deserving PB stories listed above. Good luck to everyone – too bad there are enough Marks to go around! ;)

  26. I am a long time competitive cyclist who survived on a massively high carbo diet for twenty years. Now, a new career and athletic goals brought me to PB. Made the change in the drastic way (carbs to less than 100 a day) and it landed me in the hospital w/ a blockage from no BM (sorry) Been reading my tail off about gut flora and and eating veggies but I must have changed my flora and having trouble getting things moving again naturally. Would love some insight to a few questions I have and some minor guidance to a PB life. I am in Law Enforcment and have several buddies starting the PB and they are seeing results! So, even if I dont get the call thanks anyhow!!!

    gdavis wrote on August 26th, 2009
  27. Wow, would love to chat with you not just about the PB, but also about how you tied everything together into this website, and what motivates you and pushes you to continue. There is is a little bit of selfish motivation behind this – I’ve recently started a health and fitness website and would love some advice from someone who’s “been there and done that” so successfully. I just really want to help people find a healthier lifestyle, because it makes such a difference in the quality of life.

    Chris wrote on August 26th, 2009
  28. No specific questions but I probably could challenge some primal ideas. Don’t get me wrong- I’ve eaten fairly low carb for 2 years now and its done wonders, but I haven’t eliminated whole grains completely.

  29. Hi,

    I was just recently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last month. I’ve been doing a lot of research on diets that help put Crohn’s disease into remission.

    I had stumbled across your site previous to my diagnosis, and then again now that I have Crohn’s. Your Primal lifestyle is pretty much a mirror of all that I’ve read about what to eat to put Crohn’s into remission.

    Having said that, I am an ex-marathoner and a complete carb addict, and I’m having the hardest time getting past both my addiction to exercise and carbs. I’d love to hear your advice on how to transition from my past lifestyle to the Primal lifestyle. Interestingly enough, I am wondering if my past lifestyle contributed to my Crohn’s, seeing that there is a correlation between eating refined carbs and Crohn’s.

    Thanks for all your great information on this site!

  30. Mark,

    I’m an engineer at a small manufacturing company, and a member of our newly formed Wellness Committee. I’m partly responsible for improving the health of our employees so we can continue to have (affordable) health insurance.
    Our employees are mostly males(95%), 50+ years old, and we have some dismal health statistics. Here are a few from a recent health survery of the company:
    365 people took the survey(301m/64f), 175(48%) have diabetes (personal or family member), 185(50%) have high blood pressure, 172(47%) with cancer in family, 273(75%) with BMI over 25, and 173(47%) admit they do not exercise.

    As you can see, the situation is bad.

    We have around 125 people participating in our Wellness Activities (Weight Loss challenges, etc)

    Since starting the Wellness Program, I get multiple health/exercise questions and hear all kinds of feedback from people trying to lose weight. I want to be able to help them, and give them workable solutions.

    Personally, I’ve benefitted from my switch to the PB lifestyle, but I was already a “health nut” and “gym rat” of sorts. I’m just not sure how to address men nearly twice my age who have no desire to exercise….

    HELP!

  32. Mark, my curiosity lies with how you got into this job market. I’m 23, and freshly graduated from college into one of the worst job markets in history. Smart people see this as an opportunity to explore untapped business markets. Primal health and preventative wellness is a big one, I think. People are ready to take charge of themselves and take personal responsibility for themselves and their well being. I am very interested in exploring how to make a career in this market like you have. What kind of advice would you give someone in my shoes to start?

  33. Why?

    1. I manage a triathlon store. I give people advice on nutrition and health multiple times a day. About 2 weeks ago.. it turned into “yeah, check out crossfitendurance, or… marksdailyapple.”

    2. I was a vegetarian my entire life – until a couple weeks ago. I have had similar digestion issues as you – and think I have celiacs.

    3. I was a complete endurance junkie – until a couple weeks ago. Through all the marathons, half-irons, and triathlons, I have continued to hate the xtra weight I carry. (More exercise and training then… right?!)

    4. I want to get a grip on this lifestyle, and be an expert and a resource for others, my customers, and my family… but doc, this is gonna take some one on one – and work! Are YOU ready… is the question.

  34. I am switching over to a primal lifestyle, but we recently found out my boyfriend has gout. After doing a little bit of reading, I am convinced it is his high sugar and starch consumption that does it. He, however, is wanting to follow traditional wisdom that says to avoid many foods, which leaves not much that is healthy for him to eat!
    There is no proof purines in food affect gout (at least that I can find) but you’ve linked to at least 1 study about sugar and how that may affect it.
    I’d like to discuss this all with someone educated about the body, who can help me figure this all out. I’d like to do what is best for both of us!

    Thanks so much!

  35. Mark,
    I, like many others on this site, still cling to cardio despite having adopted a Primal diet.
    The reason for this is that I am an avid mountaineer, and will be going on a high altitude expedition to a 20,000ft high mountain in Ecuador this December. I have been told by numerous professionals in the mountain climbing industry that one’s body needs more carbs when climbing at altitude because the lack of oxygen (at 16,000 feet there is a little over half the oxygen available at sea level). They say that certain biological processes, including digestion, slow down at higher altitudes because of this, which is why climbers need more readily accessible energy (carbs).
    What is your take on this? And if I do need to have more carbs to climb high peaks, how would you suggest I prepare my body to adjust prior to my trip (so I don’t get sick and not get the summit as a result).
    Thanks,
    Amy

  36. I am so, so, SO hungry all the time, that’s why! Food controls my life. I have very bad hypoglycemia that causes constant hunger, shaking, headaches, etc. etc. I’ve known that something was seriously wrong with me for two and half years, but I only got a blood glucose test done a couple of months ago. By the third hour, my blood sugar dropped to 36 and I felt like I was going to die. I don’t remember what happened for a couple of minutes at the end of the test because I was so disoriented. I also don’t remember what it’s like to go without eating every 2 hours and making sure I have a snack with me everywhere I go. My day is dictated by a desperate need for food and a fear of not having it within my reach at all times.

    I have adopted a semi-Primal lifestyle (gave up the extreme cardio that was fueling my hypoglycemia, drastically cut back on grains) but I don’t feel like these changes have made any kind of significant impact on my health. Sometimes carbs make the hypo worse, sometimes they don’t. Sometimes I eat a high protein, high fat breakfast and my blood sugar drops just as a rapidly as it does after a bowl of oatmeal.

    I need to be convinced that this lifestyle can work for me… that I won’t live the rest of my life afraid that I might faint or get violently ill if I don’t eat constantly.

  37. I am a 28 year old mother of three kiddos ages 3,1, and 2 months. After three back to back pregnancies I am trying to get myself back into great shape. I am by no means fat just a bit rounder and fuller than I would like to be. I run pretty much daily with a triple jogging stroller for about an hour.That’s a workout let me tell you! Anyway, I recently found your blog and have been following it often. The primal lifestyle makes a lot of sense to me and I really have always been a primal mommy in many ways. I co-sleep, and have wear my babies in wraps or slings for much of the day; just like Mamma Grok might have done I suppose:) I am also realizing what tremendous health benefits this lifestyle offers. Many people in my family have had or currently are struggling with serious diseases that I am planning on avoiding. I want to raise my children to appreciate healthy natural nutrition. I am proud to say they are off to a great start but am still battling cheetos and apple juice. Currently my husband is working out of state and we will soon be moving there to join him. We both love to cook and eat yummy things together and I am concerned how I am going to make this approach work for my family.Any advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks so much! Jessica.

  38. Hi Mark,
    I’ve been Primal for a little over a month and I feel great. With the kind of food I’m eating I don’t feel deprived. I have immediate family members who need to lose weight/ lower cholesterol and the Primal lifestyle would be perfect for them but the only impediment are the CW-spouting doctors in the family. If I can convince my mum to go Primal, I’d be the happiest person.

My issue is that I tend easily influenced by my friends poor eating habits, though I’ve stayed strong mostly and don’t cave! I need guidance on how Not to cave, cos it can be easy, for me anyways. I’d love to know how not to feel hungry during the day and not give in when a co-worker brings in snacks etc…I say no and they give me all these reasons why I should have “one” and when I explain to them what Primal is they just shrug me off and say “Nic you’re tiny, it’s not gonna hurt you.” I feel the best I’ve ever felt and for that I thank you!

  40. Hi Mark…love the book. I would love a call to talk about the “Diet MENTALity” that I have held for so long that is hard to get rid of. Thank you, and keep on groking!
