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!
Hi, my name is Lauren and I’m a fourteen-year-old Primal teen. My mom switched to the Primal lifestyle a year and a half ago after reading The Primal Blueprint. I decided to try it with her, not for weight reasons (I’m 5’8” and 120 lbs) but to help with some annoying acne issues and to try to be stronger and healthier.
Since about fourth grade (I’m in eighth now) I have missed around twenty-five days of school each year from colds, ear infections and other minor infections. What should have been little illnesses somehow put me in bed for a week at a time. I ride five days a week, give riding lessons to younger kids, and show once or twice a month, so I was missing things that I love to do and always ended up feeling weak. I also had these small clusters of annoying pimples that wouldn’t go away, no matter how much I washed my face or used drying lotions.
