Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy.

The Primal Blueprint message has been received and taken to heart by thousands of Mark’s Daily Apple readers. I receive emails nearly every day with inspiring, life-changing success stories. People that reversed diabetes; lost 50+ pounds and took back control of their lives; refined their diet and exercise program to attain goals they thought were impossible. Here is just a small sample of the amazing accounts of transformation I have received. Check back every week for a new Primal Blueprint Real Life Story.

If you have your own personal success story and would like to share it with me and the MDA community please drop me a line via our contact form.
