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’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

Mark,

I don’t even know where to start, but I’ll try to be short :).

Basically, after 21 days I’ve lost 16 pounds and haven’t added exercise yet. Thank you for… well… answering all the questions I had via your site. It gave me enough belief to try this for 21 days. Having done so well, I’m now putting away the scale and going to continue for another month or two without daily monitoring of my weight.

The week before I came across Primal/Paleo I yet again decided to count calories, eat 6 times and day, workout like crazy, etc. The same ol’ same ol’. Of which I’ve done for 15 years of being obese.

That week I failed yet again. By Friday of that week I was literally famished and by Sunday I found myself at Wendy’s eating TWO combos so as not to pass out. I went home sad and told myself I’m never going to lose weight. Another week wasted.

As I laid in bed Sunday night it became clear to me that being hungry and having no energy was my enemy. No matter how good a diet and exercise plan was, I would fail again and again if I was hungry.

So I decided to google other diets that you could eat more or not be hungry. Paleo kept popping up in my searches. I’d give it some reading but would ultimately tell myself I could never do Paleo due to the many restrictions of dairy or yummy fruits, lean only meats etc. Too restrictive I thought.

Then I came across your site and from 8pm till 2am I read and read and read. You’re approach was much more reasonable. I felt I could do this. Bought all your books for my iPad.

By 2am I was beat but before I went to bed I decided I was going to try at least 21 Days when I woke up.

Week #1 – lost 8 lbs
Week #2 – lost 5 lbs
Week #3 – lost 3 lbs

I battled with energy dips, general sick and foggy feelings, sleep problems and being hungry before I started. Within just 3 days I had constant energy, solid sleeping and overall felt great right away.

As a leader in a large local church, a lot of close friends and loved ones are now starting their 21 day journeys based on the basic info I could impart to them.

My goal is 180. I have another 60 lbs to go, but for the first time in 20 years I have deep down hope that I’ve found the way so to speak. I’m expecting to get back to about 1-2 lbs of weight loss a week. I know the first few weeks are unusual.

Just wanted to say thank you. I’m still in my infancy figuring all this out but your resources have been exceptional. I was so happy this morning I even made a video on YouTube.

God Bless.

Scott

Well done Scott, it’s easy to forget how restrictive Primal can seem to a newbie, but trust me once you’re in the swing of it you won’t think twice.

Good luck on your journey to Primal health!

It’s amazing what a few changes to a diet can make in terms of weight loss. For me, wheat is my biggest enemy to losing weight mainly because it’s in EVERYTHING (unless I want to cook at home)! Great job and I hope you can help those in your congregation live healthier lives!

God bless!

You mentioned being a leader in a large local church, but you did not mention that being a stumbling block for you adopting a diet based on evolutionary principles. It certainly was for me! That said, the Primal Blueprint works, no matter how we came to be “perfectly designed”, and whether you believe that was 6,000 or 10,000 years ago! I am down 60#, with about another 15# to go. (So it is almost an inverse of where you are.) I lost that 60# more or less linearly over 8 months. Then I continued to get stronger and healthier for… Read more »

I noticed that too. It made me fell better, like in the Garden of Eden, Adam & Eve were hunter-gatherers, but after the fall, humans were cursed to work the land in agriculture. It makes sense to me. Also says later on that God prefers sacrifices of meat over grains.

As a Christian, I too had to give some thought to the underpinnings of this way of living. For me, whether we were “designed” by chance and time, or were designed by Someone, the biological end is the same. Our genetics, like a vastly complex machine with its own programming, expects certain inputs for optimal performance. Fortunately we are designed to handle a wide array of sub-optimal inputs, and even many outright dangerous ones. But this takes its toll over the long term. My health, and my wife’s is better than since we were first married, 22 years ago. I… Read more »

I’m a Christian and a BME (biomedical engineer), with no issues accepting evolution. Personally, I’ve always wondered why people thought “God created” meant something just poofed into existence. It seems that everything created, both in our control (like building a house or writing a book) and in the control of nature (like the formation of a human or a mountain) occurs bit by bit.

Even if you didn’t believe in evolution, the “primal” diet is more of a plan based on the original state of our species, not based on evolution from a previous branch or something.

It seems to be mostly in the US that ‘Christian’ is synonymous with ‘6 day creationist’. Most of the rest of us have no trouble with those first few chapters being an allegory 🙂

Being a christian, the evolutionary basis was also an issue for me. I always tell people to look past that part of it and look at the facts: this is how we were intended to eat regardless of how you believe we got here, and there are alot of success stories to prove it!

I’m not sure why people think that evolution and creationism cannot coexist. Aren’t there a lot of christians who believe in evolution? Evolution is a scientific fact so I am not sure how anyone can deny it.

Just because science says something is fact doesn’t actually make it true. Science believed that earth was flat and the center of the universe for a long time. The man who suggested doctors needed to wash their hands to decrease infant deaths during birth was institutionalized and shortly thereafter beat to death. Isn’t it current science that tells us low fat high carb is the way to stay healthy and lose weight?

Funny how you can keep the parts that are beneficial to you, but still deny the scientific parts that don’t flatter you as the middle of the universe. Whatever makes you feel good, I guess. But that kind of cognitive dissonance won’t work for most people. Most magic-believers will either hold on to their dreams of never dying, and therefore accept wheat as part of the “god’s” magical creation, or will need to actually listen to science in order to learn why the primal diet is something we have been adapted to for hundreds of thousands of years. They won’t… Read more »

The evolutionary problem is mainly an American issue, most Christians have no problem with the concept of the evolutionary mechanism. Although it is still only a theory and raises more questions than answers. The existence (or not) of God is unknown and by definition unknowable.

A treasure that other people couldn’t even comprehend.

Love this comment, Oliver. Exactly how I felt. That said, I was also quite angry at certain points at how things had gotten so bad with the world’s food and health.

Well done, Scott. You’re right at the beginning, and let me echo the others who are saying it only gets more and more awesome!

I completely agree! It was like after the first few days of carb flu were over and my body was happy and adjusted, I walked around wide eyed in amazement at how great I felt. No more sugar spikes, no crazy hunger, no dozing off at work after lunch… Now I’m completely cultish about primal, although hopefully not annoying 🙂 I just don’t understand why people won’t give this lifestyle a try when it can change your very existence in this world! Great work, Scott. Keep it up! We’re cheering you on 🙂

Wow, what an endorsement for going Paleo to lose weight!

Fad diets just do not work, simply for the reasons you mention.

If everyone on ‘diets’ read about eating Paleo, there would be a whole lot of excess fat floating round the world!!

Well done Scott – inspirational!

One could say fundamental beliefs in a particular religion may present a stumbling block in the way of accepting a diet based on evolutionary principals but you could also argue in the same vein one’s body is a gift and best be put to good use. I like to use a dialogue exchange from one of my favorite movies – Lawrence of Arabia. Early on, an Arab guide asks if Lawrence is from England: Tafas: Is that a desert country? T.E. Lawrence: No. A fat country. Fat people. Tafas: You are not fat? T.E. Lawrence: No. I’m different. That’s how… Read more »

How great that people are noticing the change and want to try it seeing his success. I’ve been following this lifestyle for a little over a year, have lost about 23 pounds, my husband has also lost the same amount. (I’m 5’8″ and 128#; he’s 6’4″ and 180).

I nominate Sandy for comment of the week:

“As a Christian, the emphasis on evolution really turns me off too, however, I am not going to toss a plan that works just because some think we evolved to eat that way. I think God gave us the right foods, but in the last 100 years especially we’ve gotten way off course.”

The magical creature you believe in also created wheat’s negative sides, according to your thinking. As well as every other negative thing on earth that it could have stopped, but doesn’t. All those obese people are also the result of the magical creature, according to your reasoning; it gave them bodies that turn fat when they succumb to their cravings. Sounds like a nice creature. (Or creatures. Could be ten of them, or ten million. How do you know it’s just one?)

Hmmm… a Christian Paleo book. Same concept as Dave Ramsey pushing budgeting to a specific, large target audience, but paleo. (Thinks a Jewish Atheist). After all, it would not be any different than taking a great concept and “adding” a new spin. Just like old times. Lol.

Erik, your arrogance is really not necessary. There are a lot of things on this earth that are harmful/dangerous to us. It is because of humans’ defiance of God. The world was a much much different place before the fall of man. As far as evolution and creationism coexisting, I have not come to a conclusion. The Bible isn’t very specific as far as the “days” and “created” terms go. I was always taught in terms of seven literal days God created everything. I would be interested in hearing others’ opinions.

Not that I want to get involved in a debate here, but I am a devout church-going, choir-singing Christian and I have no problem with evolution or primal. Just sayin’. Don’t put all Christians in the same box. I just don’t like the concept that if you go to church, you automatically believe or don’t believe certain things. But really, this post is to say congratulations and best wishes for the future! In many ways your journey parallels my own – from a complete skeptic and total primal ignoramus (What am I gonna EEEAAATTT!!!!) to a complete never-look-back convert. Go!

Regardless, by taking care of them, by making them stronger and healthier, we’re actually doing as God demands. As for evolution, I also believe that this to is a fact!… Read more »

I’ve had similar thoughts along my primal/paleo journey – when evolution (in the macro sense) is brought into the picture, does that mean I should discard all the evidence that paleo eating works for me? But I know that all truth is God’s truth, and therefore science itself never contradicts that Truth, the only differences lie in the interpretation of that science (or of that Truth, as the case may be). My Christian worldview helps me to see God’s hand in all of history, & that doesn’t make my choosing to live in a way… Read more »

Mark Sisson, for describing paleo/primal, uses much more the terms of t hen what you have ‘evolved to’. Who or what is the programm maker is open to everybody’s free explanation. Either you believe it is a higher force or that it is rock and mineral soup and lightning + a coincidence from 1 in a zillion trillion. Using the science of nutrition + implementing DNA codes for appropriate of hormone delivery means nothing that hinders to believe in a God. Actually it is the contrary.

Congratulations, you inspire me. I am new to primal eating and as far as I have seen Mark Sisson has not made a comment on who or how we were created. I think when he speaks of evolution he means how man evolved over the years from a wandering nomadic life to a settled, community agriculture driven life raising grain and live stock. as a Christian, I think there is nothing more natural than a primal diet, after all God created a beautiful garden of fruits, berries, vegetables, tree nuts, fish, animals, and mothers milk for the offspring, the perfect… Read more »

I am also a Christian. Evolution just means changes that happen over a long period of time. I believe the paleo diet is what we were designed to eat. I don’t think God intended for us to eat high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated vegetable oil and genetically modified wheat products. But he did provide us with animals, fish and plants to eat. The answers to modern health problems have been available to us all along.

I just want to add that in the Bible, in the Old Testament, there are laws against plant and animal hybrids. I think that the fact that hybrids tend to have lower nutritional value (of plants, anyway) is a good reason why. The corn we eat (or don’t eat, if you’re primal) today is a poor excuse for the corn eaten by aboriginal tribes in the U.S.

I’ve been putting off going primal for months now (I bought the books in January, and still haven’t read them.) I’m at my all-time high of 360 pounds (and I’m 40). I’m going to give it a month and see how I feel, because there’s got to be a chance that this will work for me and the life-long depression and anxiety will disappear.

Sara, I would like to encourage you to start. Even if it’s small steps like going gluten free and sugar free, then advance to go completely grain free. You may feel the “Carb Flu” when you get rid of the grains but it really is worth it. Your head clears, you are better able to deal with emotional upset like depression, anxiety, anger, etc. Like many of the comments here, it’s really nice to NOT feel that carb loaded hunger. However, if you are like me you may have to mentally prepare yourself to NOT eat unless you are hungry.… Read more »

Sara, there is some evidence that going primal may help with depression, especially if you work on all aspects of it, not just food. There are multiple aspects to it. Food is key to changing your body composition but getting outside and moving is just as important from a mood standpoint. Also, getting enough sleep and being part of a community. That being said, if you feel like your depression is really serious I would encourage you to seek help. I would, however, encourage you to really try the primal/paleo lifestyle before going on any medications. I often think of… Read more »

So finally trying to just dump the conventional wisdom / propaganda and embracing the primal eating parameters has given me a new outlook, it’s possible to feel good again and learn about what makes me gain weight (and feel bad) and just toss it in the garbage.
