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...Tell Me More
It’s been a year chock-full of notable developments here at MDA. Can you say first PrimalCon, first cookbook, first reader cookbook, and the Primal Blueprint Fitness eBook (not to mention new Primal Nutrition products)? On top of it all, the MDA web community, is bigger, more active, and more involved than ever. I’d say we’ve pushed the envelope in all directions this year, eh?
At the close of this eventful year, I think a thoughtful “look back” is in order. (No sappy music or evocative stills, however.) 2010 was hands-down a year of mind-blowing recipes, kick start WOW workouts, record Primal Challenge giveaways, pensive creativity posts, tongue-in-cheek jests, scientific scrutiny – and plenty of healthy Primal debate along the way. It was the year of the massively popular forum and of the now celebrity figure Grok himself (emblazoned on t-shirts, tattoos, etc.). Finally, it was also – more than ever – the year of the reader success story: men and women who took charge of their health with the PB and simultaneously confounded the medical establishment. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and these readers’ tales tell it all.
Although it’s impossible to do full justice to 2010 in an abbreviated list, it’s nonetheless revealing, powerful and just plain fun to peruse many of the highlights – posts that reflect the year’s developments, that carved out new Primal territory, or that just got peoples’ comments flying. I’ve included something for everyone here – from the best eats to the toughest workouts, the most moving stories to the most meticulous medical commentaries. It’s a list of how-to’s, Definitive Guides, Dear Marks, reviews, and recommendations.
As I look back on 2010, I’m genuinely inspired by what the PB community has accomplished together, and I’m more motivated than ever to offer up my personal best to all of you at MDA. A toast! Raise your coffee cup, water bottle, or whatever else you have in hand. To a truly outstanding year and to all of you who helped make it so. Grok on!
