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.

Weekend Link Love – Edition 45

Happy Easter! Before you pop a peep, check out FitSugar’s Easter candy breakdown.

It’s a little late for April Fools’ Day jokes, but Fitness Spotlight’s charming review of wonderful, foolproof, ab machines was too funny not to mention.

Pay Now Live Later put together a fantastic video montage of the Primal eating plan in a nutshell. Everyone that reads Mark’s Daily Apple should take a look.

Whole Health Source has a spot-on post about reversing tooth decay.

Bottled water is ridiculous. But specifically, this chart shows just how much better tap water is.

Go Healthy Go Fit talks about how there’s a difference between eating healthy and eating organic (especially when you can buy “organic” pop tarts at the grocery store). There’s no reason to let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

Reader’s Digest publishes an informed smear against low-carb eating. Thankfully, Fat Head gives the digest article a proper schooling.

And finally, the Twitter folks already caught a glimpse of this, but Ross Training dug up a workout video that interprets Primal in… a different way.

There is some interesting talk about the concept of ‘persistance hunting’. That concept posits that early hunter gatherers primary hunting strategy was to hunt prey by chasing them over long periods until the prey dropped down out of exhaustion. There also other anecdotes about modern day hunter-gatherer populations who regularly run long distance, and how healthy they are. This article uses the same evolutionary premise of the primal blueprint to recommend an activity… Read more »

Apurva Mehta:

They are mistaking walking for running. Humans are built to WALK long distances – far enough to walk just about anything else to exhaustion. Running is a very different gait. We can do some running at different paces, but the sprint is the most important.
