Contest Poll: 2015 Primal Blueprint Workout Videos

Contest PollIt’s time for you to decide another winner! At the start of this 21-Day Challenge I put out a call for Primal Blueprint Workout Videos. And you responded with 8 top-notch clips. Boiling the submissions down to the top videos for this poll was no easy task. My crew and I discussed at length what made up a good fitness video. Was it fun and entertaining? Was the workout something we can see ourselves doing? Did it inspire and keep us watching? How well did it represent Primal Blueprint Fitness? On and on. In the end we held a blind vote and ended up with four picks. To everyone that didn’t make the cut, many, many thanks for taking the time to put together an amazing contribution to this year’s 21-Day Challenge. Honorable mentions go out to each and every one of you!

Contest Poll: 2015 Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos

Contest PollA couple weeks back I asked you to film and share your favorite Primal Blueprint recipes for a chance to $1500 in gift certificates to US Wellness Meats. We’ve got some great entries this year, from liquid bone and lamb burger handrolls, to baked lamb shanks and paleo chili. Many thanks to everyone that submitted a video. I hope you had as much fun making them as we have watching them!

As you might imagine, my crew and I had a tough time narrowing the field, but we were able to get it down to the top five. To everyone that didn’t make the cut, many thanks from myself and (yes, I’ll take the liberty) the MDA community for your contributions.

Dear Mark: More of Your 21-Day Challenge Questions Answered

QuestionsToday, I’m doing another batch of 21-Day Challenge questions pulled from the ones you asked me two weeks ago. I managed to make it onto the third page of comments. I’d hoped to get through all of them, but with over 200 questions asked, the task proved insurmountable! Since they were by and large really great questions that deserve serious answers, though, I expect I’ll be drawing on them for future editions of Dear Mark. Stay tuned for that in the future.

This week, we’ve got questions about weight machine training, indoor sprinting, eating for drinking “more than moderately,” feeding kids, going Primal with a failing kidney, exercising kids, balancing sleep and exercise, going Primal as a vegetarian, and much more.

Let’s go:

If you’re at all interested in the way diet and lifestyle can impact your risk of Alzheimer’s (and dementia in general), you’ll want to kick in some support – or at least help spread the word — for BREAD HEAD, an upcoming documentary investigating the promising science of Alzheimer’s prevention.

I was recently honored to be featured in my own local paper, the Malibu Chronicle.
