Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

It doesn’t matter – all these people have good grocery hauls, better than 99% of what I see in carts when I’m in the grocery. Most of the pics look like my cart, primarily filled with fruits & veggies with some minor amounts of crap, my favorite black licorice, my hubby’s loaf of white bread he will not give up, etc. Mine rarely has much meat or dairy, as I get those grassfed from local farms and *delivered* by a milkman. These folks all have HUGE piles of fruits and veggies, criticism is just being nit-picky. People like us is… Read more »

Yes, I do believe the contest post said this. “The pictures don’t have to be fancy, nor do they have to be 100% Primal (or even 80%, just so long as people can see what you eat in a week).”

Congrats on winning, Gretchen! Grok on.

I really liked the lady who did the pyramid, I think she should have won it for orginality.

Seeing the pic of the big shaggy cat (? Norwegain Forest Cat?) rminded me that my two middle-aged cats have not done all that well eating grain, either. One of them tends to be thin, so recently I quit their popular-brand commercial food and started them on a mixed-meat grain free food from my favorite local HFS. In just a few days I’ve seen an improvement their coats (the skinny one has medium-length hair and the other one looks just like the cat in the pic except he’s solid white); hopefully in a couple of weeks they will be filled… Read more »

I adopted a rescued cat that was severely malnourished. He was a bag of bones with a bad coat, acted depressed and refused to eat. The vet gave him an Rx that increased appetite as a side effect, and he started to put on weight. But he didn’t really look healthy, and nearly died from a urinary tract blockage a few months later. The doc said he might not survive another one like it. I did some studying up and found that, as obligate carnivores, cats do even worse on a dry food diet that includes grain than humans do.… Read more »

Glad to hear of you and your cat’s success. Just in case you got Fresh Pet–the orange cat on the Feline bag is a dead ringer for my red Somali, my thinner guy. He and his brother are both doing better. Good luck to you both.

*Watches slideshow* … and I’m inspired. More veggies! Better eggs, and more of them! Sadly, neither of my roommates are paleo/primal, and we shop independently and eat our own food. The fridge runs out of space rather fast with four gallon containers of “juice” (sugar water with colors, flavors, a splash of juice, and preservatives) and two gallons of 1% milk.

The liver and the heart as well ! Im off to my not so local egg farm where we pick up 150 eggs every 14 days and 3kgs of duck fat for all our frying needs. (2.5 hour turnaround trip) BUT the eggs are freshhhhhhhh and I get to see all the chickens running around as close to as nature intended. That is then supplemented by our monthly 3 hour drive to the farm where we get our meat. Talk about your forage expeditions 🙂 but I have never been happier and to do this is a joy as I… Read more »

All that plastic – leaching into your “healthy” food.

Do some research. Bad, bad, bad.
