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...

This is Just the Beginning

Special Offer

I’m convinced that supplementation with a daily multi-vitamin-antioxidant complex and (Omega 3) fish oil is a crucial part of living a healthy Primal life in our 21st century world. As I’ve explained in the past, Grok may not have taken supplements but I believe we should. Why? Because the world we’ve created conspires at every turn to make us look and feel old, ill, and weak. We all try to eat right, get regular exercise and control stress. But despite our best efforts we often don’t get enough sun, we stress about bills, traffic and the economy, we don’t always get enough sleep or the right exercise, we breathe polluted air, we don’t always eat as we should, and when we do, even the best natural foods are not as abundant in important micronutrients as they once were. Some of the most critical nutrients are missing entirely – and it’s only getting worse as the commercialization of food continues to spiral out of control. That’s why I created Primal Nutrition over 12 years ago; to fill the gap between what was largely unavailable in my diet and what I knew my family and I needed to maximize health.

So to mark the end of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge and to thank you for all of your support and participation I’ve put together a special package for you. If you call to receive Damage Control Master Formula (my best-selling vitamin-antioxidant system for over ten years) on a monthly basis you’ll receive a free bottle of Vital Omegas (high-potency omega-3 fish oil capsules) every month in addition to a single free canister of Responsibly Slim (a sensible high-protein meal replacement for those times when eating perfectly Primal isn’t easy) in either Dutch Chocolate or Vanilla Creme and a free Grok On! T-shirt.

I rarely hold specials like this and this particular offer only lasts 72 hours. It isn’t available online, so call the Worker Bees at 888-774-6259, mention this offer, and place your order today.

P.S. If you are looking for a more entry-level or beginners formula I also have the Advanced Health Formula and Basic Assurance. Call 888-774-6259 and one of the Worker Bees will set you up with a formula that works best for you.

Future Contests

As I mentioned in the video, those contests were so darn fun we’re going to continue doing them. For the foreseeable future I’m going to be holding contests for Primal Blueprint Fitness Videos, Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos and Primal Blueprint Real Life Stories. Click here for all the details.

Check back later today to vote for the winner of the Primal Blueprint Fitness Video contest. Grok on!

After a month of solid dedication, primal hardly seems like a lifestyle change!
Unless of course you tell normal people about it.

Dang! I can’t believe it’s over already. I want a three-month challenge to do. The energy and excitement is addictive.

I agree with Geri. Doing this challenge felt like being in a summer camp with friends. Now that the challeneg is over, it feels like the fun part has ended and that we all have to go back to our everyday routine. But then, we are making Primal lifestyle our everyday routine, so it’s all good.

Wow! It’s been a great month. I was planning to go grainless for the challenge, and then see how it went and maybe go back to having some grains, but I think I’m going to stay as grain free as possible. It really is just the beginning.

I tried going ‘sort of’ primal about a year ago. like most sort of commitments, that did not work too well. but I went hardcore about 8 months ago and won’t ever go back! I have loved all the stories, especially since folks I refer to the site can read those and get inspired to give it a go. thanks Mark for your diligence in sorting this out and desire to educate.

Just another thank you to add to the mix.

I started about 6-7 weeks ago, and you helped me change it from an experimental 30 days into a better way to live and enjoy my life. I am very grateful. So thank you again.

I love the sign off. “I was going to say, ‘Get primal’ but you know what? ‘Stay primal!'”

And every day, we get better.

I’ve loved watching everyone’s videos and meals scroll by — this was such a great way to get so much more inspiration, motivation, and change into 30 days than I’d ever seen before. Thank you.

The 30 day challenge and the contest were a great way to get us into the daily mindset of “thinking Primal”. To those of you new to it, don’t give up. It really works! I only wish that there were a way to get our patients to adopt primal eating and moving. They’d all improve so much! Unfortunately, they’re all shackled by conventional wisdom. BUT YOU’RE NOT!! Keep up the good work, folks!!
