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.

Seasonality may have driven the development of agriculture.

Even seated upper body activity suffices to break up sedentary time.

Old Japanese women who eat the most protein and high-antioxidant foods are the least frail.

Low-carb diets work well at getting type 2 diabetics off their meds, even left to their own devices with only occasional assistance from remote clinicians.

CrossFit is no more dangerous—and may even be safer—than comparable types of training.

Coffee boosts ketones.

Ketones fight gout.

We have had red meat allergy here in Sydney Australia over the past few years and different ticks to the one studied in the US. So it’s not particular to the Lone Star tick.

Sixty-one names for sugar? Wow, who knew. I could have come up with maybe a dozen names if pressed. Cook from scratch and you won’t need to memorize all those names in order to avoid them. Also, there’s a big difference between naturally occurring sugars (such as in whole fresh fruit) and manmade or “derived” sugars. Many nutritionists and at least one well-known health guru lump them all into one category, but health-wise that just isn’t the case.

I completely agree with leaving the skin on fruit and veg! I never peel my apples, carrots, aubergine, courgettes, etc. Although I do draw the line at bananas… 😉

I agree, Jenna. I don’t peel much either. (In American English an aubergine is an eggplant and courgettes are zucchini squash, for those who didn’t know.)

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone peel eggplants or zucchinis before cooking. Wouldn’t that turn them into bland-looking mush without the skin to hold their shape?

I am really interested but the arm ergometry study because I very often can’t walk. But when I google it, I only find arm cycles. Is that what it means?
