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...

Rapid Fire Updates

1. I was interviewed by Jimmy Moore at The Livin La Vida Low-Carb podcast. Click here to listen or click the photo on the right to visit Jimmy’s site.

2. Next month I’m going to be holding an all-new 30-day Primal challenge. I don’t want to give away too much just yet, but I will say that there will be contests and some really great prizes, that the challenge will be much more interactive than last year’s 30-day challenge, and that it will be a perfect way to introduce all of your friends and family to the Primal concept. I’m very excited about it and hope all of you will be too! It begins August 3rd. Check back on Thursday for more details.

3. The first round of reviews by bloggers for my new health and fitness book are starting to roll in. I’ve published links to them on this page.

4. Readers of MDA and The Primal Blueprint have been sending in some pretty amazing Success Stories. I’ve added a few new ones (some with before and after pics) here (toward the bottom) and here.

5. Last but not least… I added a new photo to the rotating images in the header and have had a few people ask where it was taken. It was taken at about 8,000 feet on Sunnyside Trail just north of Aspen about 1 month ago.

Great interview Mark.
Hopefully, some of the low-carbers can see its a total life-style change not just about weight loss.

I like to know more about the 30 day primal challenge, the success stories are very inspiring.

I am waiting to get the PB, once is in Amazon uk, as I live in Spain and that is where I buy most of my books.

Looking forward to thursday then.

Looking forward to the challenge. After some research I just wrote a fat primer post and am enjoying the benefits of more health fats.

Perfect timing on the challenge – my wife comes back from the States after 2 months on Aug. 1, our anniversary is Aug. 2 (sensible vices will be consumed, but probably not in sensible quantities;)), and then we can go head-long into the challenge.

I’m doing well on my own this summer, but the missus is a superior cook (primal or otherwise).

Congrat.’s Mark on your interview!
I just listened in and you
explained it so thoroughly.
Living your Primal Blueprint Lifestyle
is “the healthiest way of living!”
It just makes sense!

Interesting interview. Kinda surprised to hear you come down so hard on super slow lifting. I’m working my way through Body By Science at the moment and find the evidence they present in support of their recommendations to be pretty compelling. Even if it’s not exactly what Grok would do, it’s still inline with the core concept of not overexercising, minimizing stress on the body and risk of injury, lifting heavy things occasionally, and doing intense workouts with plenty of recovery time in between. I would have expected a more nuanced response to the question. Maybe you’ll do a post… Read more »

egmutza, you’re right, I did come down a little hard on super slow lifting. There is some research there, for sure. It just doesn’t fully fit the Primal model for me as a regular routine.

Great! August 3rd is when I come back from a mini-vacation. I started eating Primal at the beginning of this month and have broken my weight loss plateau as a result (I have been on a whole-grain based diet for the last 5-6 months.) I’ll continue eating Primal through July and will use the challenge as a way to see if Primal weight loss can be sustained past a month.

Glad to see the positive book reviews! I don’t want to hurt book sales, but I was thinking of donating my copy of the book to my local library when I’m done with it to share the joy! Does anyone know if having a copy in the library helps or hurts sales?

Mark,

Just wanted to say that the book was wonderful. My mom bought it and i stole it from her as soon as it arrived in the mail 🙂 I absolutely love your writing style. Even if I wasn’t a Primal junkie, you would have won me over immediately.
