The Challenge Begins Monday, August 3

Announcement: The Primal Blueprint Health Challenge officially begins this coming Monday, August 3.

If you are looking to lose weight, build muscle, increase energy, reduce stress or just generally get back on track this is the perfect opportunity for you to achieve any of your health and fitness goals.

Oh, and did I mention there will be prizes? To the tune of, say, over $6,000 in free stuff over the course of the month? That’s right, accompanying the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge will be 30 Days of Giveaways that will give you the chance to win some super cool Primal gear.

Visit Mark’s Daily Apple this coming Monday for all the details and be ready to get Primal. And tell all your friends, too! I have some special things lined up for newcomers.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. wooHOO! the timing can’t be better! i’m so stoked!

  2. Hi all!

    I discovered this site 2 weeks ago and I was sold straight away! I’ve been trying to live primal for the last 10 days and I’m feeling quite good so far, I’m combining it with the Stronglifts 5×5 weightlifting program since I think it is a good way to start lifting heavy things. Also play soccer once a week for an hour and do some sprinting the weekends (started the sprinting this morning!) My aim is to get the healthiest body I can and get rid of 10 kilos while putting a bit of muscle as well as increasing my strength a lot. You know, feel good and look lean 😉

    I want to thank you Mark for your enthusiasm and your boldness. That is what we need nowadays, someone bold to tell us what is right and what is wrong in this world of ambiguous truths.

    Rest assure I’ll be around for the challenge!!!

    (do you send giveaways to Europe?… Ireland? 😉 )

  3. Welcome, Covo.

    I’m definitely ready for the challenge.

    I’m in hour 24 of my first 32 hour fast and feel great. I can’t wait to break it at a wedding tonight – sans cake of course:)

  11. Awesome timing. I’ve been bad the last two weeks (vacation can do that to you) and was planning on getting back on track on Monday anyways, now I wont be doing it alone.

  18. Interesting stumble and timing. I am so in and I might coerce the wife to give it a go as well.

  19. after 5 months of working out 4-6 times a week and eating traditional healthy foods with a weight loss of a disappointing 13 lbs, i was searching for something that would keep me motivated. my sister-in-law, a registered dietitian, turned me on to paleo eating, and i’ve been half-heartedly trying to go primal for the last couple of weeks. i was really on track for the first two weeks and lost 6 pounds even without working out at all. then, last week (my 35th birthday), i got off track and ate a bunch of junk (by any definition) and am back up 5 of the 6 lbs i had lost. so i resolved today to do a 30-day challenge, and i am thrilled to pieces that the MDA 30 Day Challenge is starting up tomorrow. woot!

  22. My husband and I are ready to go; we just went grocery shopping and made the energy bars. Now I’m going for a walk with my new crazy vibram 5 finger shoes. Hope we can do the primal challenge!

  23. My Five Fingers and I are freshly scrubbed and ready for any challenge you can throw at us.

    Thanks Mark and the worker bees, this is great for offering a challenge this time of year.

    I’ve read the book and I have the need to take it up a notch.

  25. Not sure what I’m signing up for here, but… sign me up! Sounds like it’ll be educational for a brand-newbie. (yeah, I just made that supercool term up!)

  26. After breaking both my hands in early June, this couldn’t come at a better time. Hoping to see some awesome results as I make up training I missed for the coming college hockey season!

  27. I’m in this time. I have picked up some not so good habits lately and would also like to drop some weight by my birthday (August 28th). I have already recommitted to one weekly fast and would like to do two. My garden is realy starting to kick out some produce so I know I’ll have that. I also just made friends with a local grass-fed bison farmer so my meat should be no problem.

  28. I’m ready. I have been eating primal since last month and lost 7lbs. I’ve exercised some but I’m ready to take it up a notch and really get healthy. Count me in!

    Chris wrote on August 3rd, 2009
  29. I’ve spent the last 8 days getting a “head start” – no grains, no sugars, and re-reading the book. I’m ready to go for a full month.
