Get the Body You’ve Always Wanted

A few months ago I participated in a blog round-up with Gym Junkies in which I described my top 3 favorite exercises.

Well, they’re at it again. This time around they’ve asked bloggers and personal trainers what their #1 tip is for achieving fitness goals. Mine?

Make your easy workouts longer and easier, and your hard workouts shorter and harder.

I elaborate on this in the full-length article: 19 Incredible Tips for Getting the Body You Want.

Dear Mark: Hunger Pangs a Thing of the Past?

Dear Mark,

Since eating more fat and protein (while cutting down on the carbs), I seem to get fuller faster. Sometimes I won’t even finish my plate, which basically never happened before! I’m guessing it has something to do with eating more primal foods, and it makes sense from an anthropological standpoint (getting full on less food is advantageous in a survival sense)… but are there any science or lab studies that have actually examined this phenomenon?

Thanks,

Organ meat, especially to people that have never experienced them, can be challenging in more than one way (if you can accomplish selecting and preparing it you still have to – gulp! – eat it). For everyone that can’t get past thinking that offal is just plain awful here is a quick and easy recipe that is sure to add a kick to conventional chicken recipes. And, while I realize it does contain a little cheese – which generally falls into the gray area of sensible vices – there is so little, that it won’t throw your Primal eating plan off its tracks.
