Primal Testimonials

I receive daily emails from Mark’s Daily Apple readers thanking me for the blog and for my advice. Some notes are touching, others just downright inspiring. Many of them are too good to keep to myself, so I’ve created a Primal Testimonial page to share these kind words and amazing transformation photos (with the readers’ permission, of course) with you.

The photos and personal accounts are a testament to how powerful the Primal Blueprint really is.

If you have a story you’d like to share or photos that show how the Primal Blueprint has changed your life please drop me a line. Besides bringing a smile to my day (few things make me happier than seeing my readers better their lives through the Primal Blueprint) you can also take joy knowing that it may be your testimonial that encourages someone to begin leading a healthier life.

The page is a work in progress. I’ll be adding new testimonials in coming months.

(Black pepper isn’t included in this list.)

What Happens to Your Body When… You Carb Binge?

Carb BingeAnother day, another co-worker’s birthday (and the obligatory cake in the break room). Elaine Benes was right: this is insanity.

You’re into the Primal style of eating, so it’s easy to resist this stuff, right? You ignored the dirty looks when you turned down that piece of fudge-smothered bundt cake offered by your boss’s wife at their employee open house. You don’t mind gnawing on the few anemic carrot sticks left at the annual holiday party. Dessert just isn’t part of your vocabulary.
