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!
