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...

Happy Holidays!

Happy HolidaysWhether you bring a personal faith tradition to this time of year or not, I think there’s something to be valued in the ritual and community of the holidays. It offers us one of those rare occasions in our culture to collectively come together, reflect and relax into the moment. However we choose to observe the day, we hopefully have the chance to do something that enhances our social connectedness, our spiritual good and emotional well-being. If I have one wish for each and every one of my readers, it’s that you claim the day to fill the well somehow – whatever that means for you and your life right now.

Every year I take stock of how grateful I am for the people in my life, the experiences of the year and the work I love doing here among all of you. It’s given me the chance to share the perspective and research that has made such a difference in my life, and it’s a gift to see how it’s made a difference in others’ lives as well.

Enjoy your holiday, everyone. And if you’re so inspired, take a look back at some of the posts that reflect on the Primal significance of (and suggestions for) the holiday experience. Thank you all for sharing the journey….

Merry Christmas to Mark, his family and everyone who embarks in the daily sojourn of this website. It’s been a productive year, I made more money than last year, weigh much less (215 to 180lb) and have watched my daughters grow by leaps and bounds. One of the unforeseen benefits of this site was the quest for balance that most of us seem to be engaged in. Making a change in my body has acted as a foil for me to begin testing my mettle in other areas of my life where a lack of confidence has always held a… Read more »

Happy Holidays to Mark, Carrie and everyone else at MDA.
MDA has really inspired me over the last year or so. We went stand-up paddling out in Capitola this am and had a great time watching the dolphins. What a great day to spend Christmas!

Merry Christmas Mark. Thanks for putting it out there with no strings attached. You are an excellent share-er.

Just taking a moment to thank you for the impact you’ve had on my life. 3.5 years Primal, and it’s now as fundamental to me as breathing. I just turned 50 and I feel better than I did at 30.

While but all of my family eats a primal diet, ask if my family is happy that I found you. I cooked what was possibly the best prime rib roast of my life. It was the mda recipe from Dec 17. Stellar recipe! I planned to blog about it but it got eaten before I could get a picture. LOL! I think that’s a pretty good sign. Merry Christmas everyone!

I’m new this year to MDA, and it’s one of the things that i’m grateful for. I trust Mark and his ideas/opinions and know he doesn’t take that trust lightly. Please keep up the great work in our behalf.

I am grateful to you, Mr. Sisson, for all of the research that you guys do, and the information that you share.

You are always thoughtful and engaging, never condescending, and continue to inspire.

Happy Holidays, good sir!
