Introducing The Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal

90day spiralcover front 1Update: The 90-Day Journal is still available at PrimalBlueprint.com, but the special limited-time offer detailed below has come to end.

The Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal – A Personal Experiment is here, and it goes above and beyond anything you have ever seen in the health and fitness logbook/journal/diary category. Honestly, the project has been in R&D for no less than 30 years, dating back to my days as a competitive endurance athlete when I faithfully logged my workouts in the popular training logs du jour. Even then, I was never terribly impressed with the products on the store shelves. They were (and still are) either too open-ended with no guidance whatsoever, or too limiting, with logbook blanks that didn’t apply to my personal experiences. I thought, perhaps there was a way to marry the best of both worlds: to provide guidance and structure for assorted ability and experience levels, while allowing for sufficient flexibility and free-form expression. This is how the idea for The Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal was born.

N=1 (an experiment of one) is the central theme of this new book. The Primal Blueprint philosophy gives you the structure you need, and the rest is up to you. Plug in lifestyle variables based on your personal preferences and specific goals to determine what makes you tick. The 90-Day Journal allows you to record all types of personal data, such as food and meal choices, workout particulars, sleep and lifestyle patterns, and personal issues that affect your daily rhythm and peak performance.

For example, let’s say you want to observe how average grams of daily carb intake affects your body fat percentage. Or how introducing intense sprint workouts affects your aerobic performance. Or how minimizing artificial light after dark affects your sleep patterns and morning energy levels. You design the experiments, list the variables, conduct detailed progress reports every 30 days, and finish with a masterpiece of scientific data – a personal owner’s manual – when the final page is complete after 90 days.

The n=1 format is an ode to the Mark’s Daily Apple community, and the remarkable back-and-forth dialog each day in the comments following the posts. I’m a busy guy these days, but I really do read all the comments and the valuable insights shared by so many members of our community. I’m firmly committed to the philosophy that the Primal Blueprint is a personal journey, not another regimented program designed for short-term results at the expense of long-term sustainability. I see how you readers have taken a dream and turned it into a movement…so let’s keep the experiment going!

As usual, I want to do something special for devoted Mark’s Daily Apple readers on this book release day. I’m offering some fantastic free gifts for this urgent promotion that expires on Wednesday, July 4, 2012, 12 pm PDT. The 90-Day Journal will only be available from PrimalBlueprint.com for the first couple months of release. See all the details below, but first a little more about the book:

3. A signed copy of the original Primal Blueprint hardcover edition (released in 2009): This is the book that started it all. If you haven’t read it, you have some catching up to do!

Earlier this year The Primal Blueprint was released in paperback format, and there aren’t plans to do another hardcover printing. I still have a handful of hardcovers in stock, but numbers are dwindling quickly so this could be your last chance to grab a copy of the hardcover before new copies are gone forever. If you already own a copy of The Primal Blueprint this is the perfect opportunity to pick up a free copy for a friend or family member. And whether it’s for you or some other lucky recipient, I’ll include my John Hancock in the book.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
