Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Primal Twitter Community Going Strong!

By Mark Sisson

A few weeks ago I proposed to the MDA community that we leverage the growing popularity of Twitter to spread the message and to add an additional way for all of us to connect with another. And connect we have! After I published the post hundreds of people began following me on Twitter and conversing with one another by way of our Primal Community tag – #primal. Just look at some of the “#primal” tweets below.

I want to thank everyone that has been participating. I’ve loved following all of your Primal thoughts and experiences virtually in real time. It has been a joy to see how others are living like Grok.

Also, I want to announce that all Twitter followers will be receiving a special tweet from me next week. Let’s just say that the redesign of Mark’s Daily Apple is nearing completion… (wink, wink).

If you’d like to receive this early, Twitter-only announcement click here to follow my tweets.

If you’d rather not make an account but still want to see what others are saying you can view #primal tweets by visiting this link.

Reading those comments you happened to post made me feel better Mark.

I still find myself cheating with some carbs.

Last night I got home from Crossfit and inhaled like 15 Sesame Flax seed Tortilla chips with salsa.

Damn Carbs–once I pop I cant stop.

Still trying to wrap my head around Twitter & the site & the tiny texts. But I got a good laugh from some of the tweets! The more PBers out there the better.

Using #primal. There’s also an #ifast category for people doing intermittent fasting. Just search for “#ifast”

Hey Mark, can you do a post on the sustainability impact of canned vs frozen foods? I’d like to give my money to the more environmentally-friendly option when I’m not buying local.

I had an email exchange with SoG where I said I probably wasn’t going to do it. That was about 235 Tweets ago! 🙂 There have been some really good exchanges (including my confession about dipping into the Blue Bell Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream! )

Have a wonderful #primal day!!

Dear Mark and Staff, I am currently on the Paleo Diet and I am enjoying the transformation of my body. I have read many nutritional books in hopes of finding the ultimate diet. I could not find one convincing argument for eating grains. All of them say eat grains because they provide nutrients and fiber. I looked at the nutrient profile of these grains and came up with the conclusion that green vegetables provide higher doses of these nutrients in lower calories. These vegetables also provide fiber. However I am currently considering adding legumes to my diet. I feel that… Read more »
