Q & A Session at Free the Animal

A couple months ago I was privileged to have Richard Nikoley of Free the Animal write a guest post for Mark’s Daily Apple. It was titled My Self-Experimentation and Transformation. In it Richard told his inspirational story of dropping 40 pounds (while adding muscle), lowering his blood pressure, managing his stress levels and ditching prescription meds by following similar principles to those outlined in the Primal Blueprint.

His story was also one of enlightenment. Richard came to realize that almost all mainstream health and fitness advice – the Conventional Wisdom we go on an on about here on MDA – was dead wrong. With this understanding Richard was able to make some major life changes. His tale inspired many readers as the comment boards can attest to. If you haven’t already read it take a look now.

Richard was kind enough to let me repay the favor, so I’ve put together a guest post for his site. A couple weeks back Richard told his readers that I would be answering any questions they could throw my way. Here are a few of the questions I answer:

  • What are your thoughts on an all meat diet?
  • What do you think about eating protein within an hour of a hard workout?
  • What would you suggest for those of us Primals who go on a cruise? Go for the fruity drinks with all that sugar, or stick to the beer or wine?

So go check it out and add your own thoughts to the comment board.

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. I just got back from a cruise. Eating well was hard. Impossible wouldn’t even go to far. I got a nasty cold to show for my excess deserts. There is good food (but other than the main meal just barely), but you choose from a small list which often doesn’t have any good choices.

    Drinks were not a problem though, alcohol was expensive so most people I was with limited their drinks (except the one tour with free rum punch). Soda was available, but actually getting it was nearly impossible. My soda addicted friends complained loudly about their inability to get soda. Water was available at all times and since that is all I drink anyway I was fine.

    I wouldn’t plan a cruise again, but I would go with friends again if I couldn’t talk them out of it.
