Meet Mark

Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy.

Doing Keto the Right Way: An Hour with Aubrey Marcus

By Mark Sisson

inline_aubreyA couple of weeks ago I sat down with entrepreneur extraordinaire, multi-sport athlete, and consciousness explorer, Aubrey Marcus, for an in-depth and entertaining discussion of everything from hangover cures to keto philosophy.

Marcus has always been one of my favorite people to talk with, and that morning in my backyard was no exception. We covered all things keto—from the mistakes people make in bottoming out their carbs instantaneously to the advantages of stair-stepping the process. I had a chance to share about my upcoming Keto Reset Diet book as well as personal details of my own experience with the keto state. Aubrey offered his latest favorite recipes (inspired by Primal Kitchen® products, no less!), and we talked in full but casual detail how keto dives set us up for genuine, lasting metabolic flexibility and overall health. There’s a lot of science and plenty of laughs here. I hope you enjoy, everybody!

Thanks again to Aubrey for a lively and fun discussion on his podcast. And thanks to everyone for stopping by today. Let me know what you enjoyed about our conversation and any questions it brings up for you. Have a great week.

Lots of info and fun conversation. Lots more than just keto. Oh, and I did read Primal Connection. Good book.

Yes, I agree. Aubrey Marcus gives us some great insight on keto.

That was the book that got me on this path. You can find recipes and protocols everywhere, but insights like Mark shared in Primal Connection are rare.

Great conversation!

And, as always, Mark, love your focus on moving toward balance in a sustained, real-food, real-movement way (rather than trying to “hack” our way out of something with quick- fix “solutions”).

Our bodies WANT to be healthy and balanced – doesn’t have to be complicated.

Just decided to give Keto a try last week. Lost 3.5 pounds in week one. I don’t know that I’m loving it yet, but I’m interested to learn. I know low carb works for me–but I cannot go without fat sources. It makes me eating not worth it to me (though I know the low fat/low carb works with me too). Looking forward to more insights and ideas.

What a superb video!! And a re-read of the primal connection methinks.

I was really disappointed to read a post this morning on the diet doctor website, written back in April, criticising Mark for supposedly selling out.

Big shout to Aubrey for the video, for me it demonstrates Mark is a genuine dude.

This was an interesting conversation between 2 experts in ketogenic diet… I enjoyed this mightily, and found some interesting info in it. However, I found the audio/video mode of presentation a bit frustrating, as I wanted to comment on several things, and then I promptly forgot what they were… !! One comment that I remembered… You two were talking about skeptics saying, “What would I eat??!!” A thing that I think people such as Aubrey and you, Mark, sometimes forget, is that many of the people that you want to reach get turned off by hearing too many buzzwords from… Read more »

I could use some help/suggestions. I have ordered the book and can’t wait to get it. I follow low carb sites and have tried to stay low carb but usually it’s an epic fail. I don’t plan and end up in one of those situations where I just cave then give up a while. I had bronchitis last week and the dr gave me some Tussinex and I was telling my son-in law that it makes me itch like a crazy woman. He said one word “histamines”. I looked it up and found that people can have histamine intolerance. Problem… Read more »
