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...

Contest: What’s Your Five?

By Mark Sisson
215 Comments

The Prize:

A signed poster! You can frame it. You can laminate it.  You can bend it and wear it as a hat. In times of emergency you can fold it into a flotation device for a small mammal, perhaps a hamster. And most importantly, you can hang it on the wall of your kitchen, your study, your hall, dining room, lounge, library, ballroom, billiard room, or conservatory. You can’t put a price tag on the information provided on this poster. And while, technically, I did put a price tag on it ($14.95 at www.PrimalBlueprint.com, order now!), this poster is signed, and my signature has been known to fetch upward of five million dollars (see note at bottom) in certain online auction houses.  If you already have a poster, sleep well at night knowing that I still have over a thousand dollars worth of merch to give away in the next four days.

The Contest:

Have a favorite Primal food? Have five favorite Primal foods? Today’s contest is inspired by RockStarEddy’s forum post. If you could only live with five foods for the rest of your life, what would they be? List them in the comments section. One winner will be picked at random.

The Deadline:

Midnight, tonight!

Who is Eligible:

Everyone. Everywhere.

NOTE: My signature has never been auctioned. Five million is my best guess. It may only fetch a dollar. When someone will pay $50,000 for an out-of-commission Volkswagon just because it appeared on a popular ABC supernatural mystery show, who knows what people are willing to spend money on these days.

being a high school teacher (phys ed and health) would love to have a poster to hang in my health room to give the kids an option as opposed to the cw pyramid offered by the g-ment/pharma/food industy.
here’s my survival foods

1. anything that used to have a face
2. eggs (i guess eventually they would have had a face too but none the less)
3.multi colored leafy and textured veggies
4.assorted berries and nuts (of course peanuts are not included.)
5. extra virgin olive oil or organic coconut oil (for both cooking and skin conditioning.

Being a teacher you should be able to follow rules. He said five things, not five lists of things. If you win i will be having flashbacks from a tramatic event from highschool, where i followed the rules and someone who broke the rules won with the same entry as i had. LOL
