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...

Just One Small Change Leads to Amazing Results

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 just celebrated my 29th birthday, and thanks to this lifestyle, I’m almost completely pain-free for the first time in over 10 years. I made the switch about 5 months ago, but unlike a lot of people who find the Primal Blueprint, I wasn’t looking for a change.

If you had asked me 6 months ago, I would have told you that I was in the best shape of my life and in the best shape I could be. I had daily gastro-intestinal problems, debilitating migraines almost weekly, chronic back and all-body muscle pain, and serious sleep disruptions – but I was sure that was as good as it could get for me.

At 28 years old, I had accepted that pain was just a part of my daily life and always would be. I felt tired and sick to some degree every day, but I had given up on anything more than minimizing the pain and finding ways to push through or ignore the sleep and stomach problems.

A little background: at least back to adolescence, if not before, I’ve had severe muscle pain (mostly in my back and legs) and headaches. At my worst in high school, I would get a migraine every single afternoon and couldn’t do anything for hours until it subsided. I also can’t remember ever sleeping completely through the night; I thought everyone tossed and turned and woke up 5-10 times every night like I did. I would sleep 12 or 13 hours and still feel tired. I could never understand how other people seemed so rested with just 7 or 8 hours of sleep.

Then, in late 2000 (during my senior year of high school) I found a grapefruit-sized tumor in my abdomen that required major surgery to remove. The surgery resulted in the loss of about 3 feet total from several sections of both my small and large intestine.

After the surgery, nothing gastro-intestinally ever worked right again for me. For 10 years I had daily problems, ranging from ulcer-like shooting pains to symptoms more akin to Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I tried to figure out what foods would cause the worst problems, but the patterns seemed random and not linked to any one food. Both the doctors and I wrote it all off as the unfortunate and permanent side effects of missing large parts of my intestine.

Then in college, I finally decided to talk to a doctor about the muscle pain, headaches, and sleep problems, and I was diagnosed with Myofascial Pain Sydrome (similar to Fibromyalgia). They gave me prescriptions for an antidepressant and a migraine medicine, which helped me sleep a little better and stop a migraine after it started, but nothing prevented the pain or headaches. The antidepressant also made it hard to wake up in the mornings, and I wasn’t totally comfortable taking a medication intended for a problem I didn’t have.

Fast forward through five more years of headaches, back pain, and stomach problems. I am 5’6” tall, and 6 months ago I weighed 135 lbs. I had been working out 3-5 times a week for several years, my blood pressure and cholesterol were good, and I ate what was considered a fairly healthy diet by conventional wisdom: lots of whole grains, limited fat and red meat, plenty of fruit, no soda, etc. I was doing everything right! And my doctors agreed: I was doing well for someone with my kinds of problems.

Then I met my boyfriend, who didn’t see my pain as normal or under control. He started telling me about the Primal Blueprint and the way he ate, and he told me it could really help me with my problems. The concept made sense to me, but when you have problems like I do, it seems that everyone you meet has some cure-all solution you’ve never thought of, so I was skeptical.

Doctors never talked to me about diet at all (after all, I wasn’t overweight!), so I couldn’t believe just eating differently would do anything when doctors had already done all they could. So, on a lark and mostly to prove this guy wrong, I decided to try it. Of course, I didn’t do any research or visit your website, even though he told me to check it out at least 10 times (sorry, but I can be stubborn!). I just decided to stop eating grains and to limit processed sugars for a month to see what would happen.

Around 11:00am on Day 1, after not having my bowl of cereal and glass of juice for breakfast as I had every day for most of my life, I realized I didn’t have my usual mid-morning blood sugar drop and sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.

After a week, I realized my stomach had been feeling a lot better and fewer foods were upsetting it.

After two weeks, I took an overseas trip and did all the usual things that would have caused serious muscle pain and migraines – sleeping on planes, walking miles in bad shoes, carrying heavy bags – and yet I felt good every day and didn’t have much of my usual pain.

At that point, I was a convert. Two weeks of cutting out grain and most sugar but not changing anything else in my life, and I felt better than I had in 10 years! With that one change, I had achieved results doctors couldn’t give me with any advice or medication.

Since then, I’ve been reading a lot more about the Primal Blueprint and working to improve the rest of my diet and exercise habits, and I’ve seen amazing results. Five months later, I am off all of my prescriptions but am still sleeping much better with just some natural supplements. I lost 15 pounds I didn’t even realize I needed to lose, and have started to notice a lot more muscle gain from my workouts.

Everything gastro-intestinally is now better than it was even before the surgery, and foods that I used to think I couldn’t eat don’t cause me problems anymore. My muscle pain is completely gone most days, and is just a low-level annoyance on my few “bad” days. My migraines are also almost gone – I’ve had 1 or 2 in the last 5 months (down from 2-3 a month), and each time I could point to my own bad eating as the immediate cause.

Several people have told me that I also seem much happier lately, and I am – funny how not being in pain every day can do that for you! I hadn’t realized it, but all those problems also had a huge effect on my mood and general happiness. In fact, I just noticed the other day that I am no longer amazed every time I realize that nothing hurts. Thanks to this lifestyle, I have a new, pain-free “normal,” which is something I never imagined I’d have.

I wish I could send you a picture of my newly happy, healthy, and better-rested muscles, stomach, and intestines, but even if I could, I don’t think anyone would want to see that :). I don’t have any dramatic before or after pictures to show, either, so I’m just attaching some happy after-shots.

I hope my story can help other people like me see that this lifestyle can do more than help you lose weight. I never looked at my diet – and neither did my doctors – primarily because I wasn’t overweight. I am proof of what a huge impact diet and other lifestyle choices can have on severe and chronic pain, and in my case, even on problems caused by physical damage, like the after-effects of major surgery.

Thanks for all the great information and inspiration!

Lindsay

No, it doesn’t. Maybe it’s some feature that only works when certain things are enabled – which means this page wasn’t designed for a wide range of people. That’s going to cut down viewing over time, as surfers give up on it.

@P.M. Lawrence: It’s only the plain and simple ‘title’ attribute for the ‘img’ tag which means it was designed for the widest range of applications possible. It’s HTML 101, dude.

P.M.Lawrence

Big Bob, that’s utterly irrelevant. You just described what is supposed to happen, with that tag. I know that full well. The thing is, I was describing what actually happened when I tried it. Since the tag wording did not come up then, it looked as though there was some other feature involved, i.e. that somebody had tried to be too clever and had not gone for the straightforward approach. (I was thinking, they might have done something that involved javascript, since I usually have that disabled.) The odd thing is, today the image is delivering the correct behaviour.

P.M. Lawrence: Sorry I was not clear w/my comment, but if you look at the page source it clearly shows that it is written in the manner that I described. So I can say that what I said was indeed relevant from my point of view and time of reference. In all fairness, I cannot tell if/when the markup was changed, so you may be absolutely correct from your point of view/time of reference. Not trying to be argumentative, was just pointing out what I saw in the page source. Thanks.

I am celiac. Sounds like you might have a reaction to gluten. I just want to respond to the question. Surgery cant give you gluten intolerance. There is a gene for celiac and its something that is in your genes or I think because of gmos.. great story

Nice job! When I was reading through your story I was thinking “This sounds a lot like me!” I’m hoping I will have the same dramatic results (as well as a ton of weight loss). It’s a learning journey the whole way and I can’t wait for pain free happiness! Thanks for sharing.

I was so amazed by stories like this when I first became aware of paleo/primal eating last year. Now I’m just amazed that more people aren’t giving it a try to see if it can help them with medical issues. Why is wheat such a sacred cow?
Congratulations, Lindsay!

Funny you say that, my husband had swelling in his one leg after a skin infection. I finally have him convinced to give it up for a little any how and see how it works since he needs to loose weight and alot of it, and he called me over last night to show me his leg which no longer swells up. Now if I can keep him on it.

Love that comment: Why is wheat such a sacred cow?

I teach a nutrition class and all my newbies think I’m crazy when I tell them that as many as 80% of them probably have observable imflammation after ingesting wheat. They will often do ANYTHING to hang on to wheat!

Very enjoyable statements, Lindsay! Setting aside whatever impact the tumor had on your GI health (and I admit that that’s a huge thing to just set aside), I totally agree that going Primal removes pains and discomforts that many of us just accept as an unavoidable part of life. Mark and others have discussed how Celiac’s Disease is probably more of a spectrum rather than a binary “You have it or you don’t” problem. I believe that irritable bowel syndrome is the same way. Many people might not be “diagnosed” with the abdominal pains and discomforts, but when the Primal… Read more »

The first change I noticed after going primal was also the vast improvement in gastrointestinal functions. I just assumed that as I got older, things didn’t work as well as they used to work, and that heartburn and gastrointestinal distress was simply a sign of aging.

Now, any kind of GI distress at all is so rare, it is usually a sign that something is out of balance.

I love it!! I have had to be wheat free for 4 or so years now and that got rid of eczema, migraines and arthritis as well as IBS. I never lost weight though and I have been still searching for better health. I have found it here but still struggle a bit. Hopefully my public success story in the making will get me to build the habits I need now! Thanks for the inspiration!!

This is a great story…I have a friend that has dealt with Crohns since she was 14. I’ve started talking to her about PB and how it very well may help her. Amazing that what we put into our body has such a profound effect on our health, our energy, etc.

Keep encouraging your friend. I have Crohns and eating primal/Paleo has helped me tremendously. I get blood work done regularly and the inflammation levels in my body are now well under control.

Congrats on your inspirational story Lindsay! Millions around the world have the same thoughts as you. They have pain in various areas but just think that’s what life is. People don’t think that you are supposed to feel amazing each and every day.

Now you have that! Hopefully people will read this and start believing!

Michelle

Thanks for sharing your story. I liked your comment about doctors not discussing diet with you. My experience is that this is not unusual. What should be a very important discussion between patient and doctors is often overlooked.

Kathy
4 years 8 months ago

So true! I asked my doctors if there was anything I should do differently with my diet when I was diagnosed with MS, and they said no, just eat a balanced diet. It took me three years to discover that gluten, dairy, corn,and egg whites were HUGE factors in my MS. After 3 months on a paleo type diet (The MS Recovery Diet), I had my symptoms completely under control and was off all medications. I went back and told my doctors my story, and they didn’t believe me!!!!

I had just been to the doctor the month before starting the PB, so I’m due back in a few weeks. I have baseline tests that were run 4 or 5 years ago and plan to get them run again for comparisons. I’ll be sure to write in with the results and what the doctor says!

Great! Will be watching for your posting. Before and after lab results can be (at least for me) as motivating as before and after photos. And, I will be interested to see how the doctor responds to your results – most especially to the reason you will be giving for those results.

Ok, my lipid results are back (that’s the only test my doc wanted to re-run), and they were, in her words, “awesome”: My last lipid profile from Nov. 2008: Cholesterol – 184 Triglycerides – 137 HDL – 65 LDL – 92 Now (Feb. 2012): Cholesterol – 178 Triglycerides – 51 HDL – 80 LDL – 88 So, even though everything was good to begin with, it all improved significantly. My doctor was actually very receptive and interested in what I’ve been doing even before we had these results, and she wrote down MDA’s website so she could look into trying… Read more »

This is a great reminder that while many of us enjoy physical transformations from primal living, there are huge “internal” (and psychological benefits as well) – I share your experience that this approach generally makes me feel happier/more positive.

My husband and I are slowly switching over to Primal (Feb 1st is our target date). I am going to point him to this story because he too suffers from chronic migraines.

He is really worried about giving up caffeine because that is usually the only thing that takes care of them, but want him to see that just eating can make a big difference in some people. Thank you for sharing your story!

I’ve reduced my caffeine intake greatly since making the primal leap. Mainly because I did not feel so sluggish in the mornings which I attribute to eating correctly and sleeping sounder.

Now a cup of coffee is a treat. I do not need a morning jolt to get me going. I get me going; a bootstrapper! But I loves me a black coffee. The aroma and flavor is tantalizing.

John Little

He could always let caffeine be the last thing he let’s go of, give him a little buffer zone to allow the other changes to take effect first. 🙂 Good luck, you’ll love it!!!

As Sabrina pointed out, giving up coffee/caffeine isn’t a requirement for going primal. My own supposition is that Paleo people probably discovered natural plant (and other) stimulants to use as needed – much like coca leaves are chewed by the indigenous people in the Andes. However, your husband may discover like I have that his desire and need for caffeine will naturally diminish on its own. Before starting the Primal lifestyle, I was only a moderate consumer – 12 ozs of coffee in the morning with only Stevia added – but I found the caffeine helpful with early morning headaches… Read more »

Congratulations Lindsay!!! It’s so hard for people to understand the positive emotional side effects of going Primal/Paleo until they do it.

So happy you are feeling better and have found your cure!

I can SO relate to this story! Except the part about not needing to lose weight! I have fibromyalgia – and eating Primal has nearly eliminated my pain and fatigue!

Amazing story Lindsay! I am SO happy for you that you are living relatively pain free now. What a story to tell others – thank you for sharing! It is important to have stories like yours that show the wide range of affects that our food and nutrition have on our bodies and overall well being. Especially when trying to share with people who don’t know anything about PB or are entrenched in their conventional wisdom. Thank you again for sharing. 🙂 Best Wishes!

You are probably fortunate that the doctors never tried to instruct you in changing your diet. They would have told you to avoid meat and eat plenty of whole grains, fruits and veggies. You were probably already doing that, and see how well that turned out???

What a story, Lindsay! Like you, I have always been quite fit (former swimmer) and ate what I thought was the best diet going: low-fat, lots of whole grains, very little processed foods and piles of fruits and vegetables. But at the age of 30, I was diagnosed as suffering from arthrites. No dietary advice given by the doctors – just one of those things that happen as you age. For 10 years I suffered from excruciating lower-back pain, sciatica, joint, and muscle and whole body pains. But I was slim, muscular and fit. My blood works were fine until… Read more »

I didn’t read the article because it is too long, but I did do a search through the text for “ass” and “butt” and “badonkadonk” and found that Lindsay forgot to mention that this diet has made her ass totally pop. It should be called the bacon and ass diet or something, cause you eat bacon and get a sweet ass. I been trying to get some of dat ass for a long time, but I think this diet upgraded her to out of my league.. Damn you Mark!

This was a fabulous read! Doctors really aren’t educated in nutrition, and even dietitians can give unhelpful advice. I would know as I’ve been to loads of them for all my gut issues. After suffering from an eating disorder for several years, my guts became very upset with pretty much anything I ate. In my mind I knew that all the carbs I was eating was causing this problem….but the doctors and dietitians kept pushing them on me. It wasn’t helping me gain weight, and most days I just felt unwell. So I took my health into my own hands… Read more »

A very inspiring story, I’m so pleased for Lindsay. I wholeheartedly agree to more success stories, especially when it has turned around chronic debilitating conditions. When I was diagnosed with one I looked it up on the internet to find out what I could do – there were so many horror stories of people 10years + suffering and getting worse that I was depressed and frightened by what was happening to my life. What changed my mindset was finding a book devoted to telling peoples’ success stories on getting better – it led me in a roundabout way to PB… Read more »
