Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. Iโ€™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 weโ€™ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Now that the redesign is complete and the book is about to be shipped (two very time consuming projects) I’m going to be able to spend even more time pursuing my goal of providing you with the best health and fitness content on the web.

So what do you want?

I’ve posed this question in the past and have received great feedback, but now I have a nifty new poll feature to make it easier for you to tell me about yourself and what you would like out of Mark’s Daily Apple. At the end of the day I’m going to continue to write and rant about whatever strikes my fancy, but I am here to please, too, so chime in below and I’ll take all of your comments into account as I plan what the future holds for the Daily Apple.

The polls are completely anonymous and you can answer some and not others if you prefer. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

[poll id=”3″] [poll id=”7″] [poll id=”6″] [poll id=”5″]

If you have any great ideas for future polls let me know about them. I’m taking any and all requests.

I am interested in no-gym workouts for women, preferably with a minimum of equipment.

Same here, but for men

For no equipment/bodyweight workouts, have a look at the ‘Prison Workout’ and ‘Endorphin Mainline’ posts in the archives.

The ‘Prison Workout’ was posted on 23rd July 2008, and the ‘Endorphin Mainline’ posted on 25th February 2009. Maybe someone could give you some ideas on numbers of reps and sets for ‘Prison Workout’ beginners…I’m not sure ‘descending sets’ of burpees is for beginners, certainly not 20, 19..18…puff…17…wheeze… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Can’t see the results (either before or after voting), at least in Chrome.

Can’t see the results in IE either–think Mark is just kidding us with the “check results” thing.

keep it up…also very surprised to see that most people in their twenties like me, I would of thought I would be in the minority

I agree with the first two, more body weight exercises and more recipes as well as ingredients. You introduced me to almond flour. What other house hold ingredients could we upgrade?

Can’t have enough primal receipes

perhaps I’m missing something but it would be great if there was a way for members to answer each other directly without adding it to the bottom of a post.

Hi Marci! Just click on the “Reply” button at the bottom right of the post you want to respond too. Timconradinc did it above to Tara, as I’m doing to your post now.

I’m all for Grok becoming female, or at least there being an oft mentioned female counterpart, but then I’m philosophically minded like that. And I’d love the dissection/discussion of more research articles.

Would like more recipes that

– are affordable
– are easy to prepare
– use few ingredients
– use produce that is in season, keeping in mind geographical diversity

Recipes for food that can be packed for lunch and eaten cold or at room temperature would be especially practical.

Would like to see Carrie post more. As a petite woman, I don’t aspire to your muscular build. Carrie looks perfectly toned and fit with sexy curves. She looks better than Cindy Crawford, Nicolette Sheridan, Elle MacPherson, and other forty-somethings photographed in bikinis. I’d like to hear about Carrie’s meals and workouts.

1) If you’re thinking of releasing jerky and energy bars, then what about MDA’s very own brand of ‘Pemmican’ instead? The protein benefits of jerky, with the energy rich benefits of fat ๐Ÿ™‚

ps – Fantastic new site, and best of luck with the book.

Groks didn’t get married and neither did some of us modern folks. I’m not a Mr. or a Mrs., I am a Ms., and so are many other readers. (“Mr. or Mrs. Grok?”)

Good for you…after 6 decades I’ve basically given up on the rest of the country catching up. I use to be Mrs…now there’s a different one. Don’t think she’d appreciate it if I kept using Mrs., and I got divorced for a reason; I don’t want the reminder. It’s interesting that Miss isn’t even an option. I guess if you aren’t a man—should be married?

Hey Mark! Check out the forum section “meet and greet”, is appears that we all have the same beef (gotta love the Grok puns) with Primal. It’s the explaining! How about a post with quick quips on how to go about talking to the primal nay-sayers? And not the long diatribes about how much better it is for us, we already know that and explaining it (let’s face it) does not good. It’s horrible to say, but I am looking for some quick ways out when people pester me to eat the bread or pasta or cake. Changing the subject… Read more »

Ebooks are cool and all, but would be nice to see in the low-carb world would be *free* educational material written and designed to *teach* and *learn* all about primal eating. Seriously, some good power-point presentations would go a long way in teaching others about this way of living.

I would really like to see more about how your wife lives this blueprint. More on what are the differences for women especially as she hits that middle age difficulties and how she deals with it all.

Great site.
