Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 64 years young. I live and work in Miami, Florida. 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.

What Is the Primal Blueprint?

What Is the Primal Blueprint?

The Primal Blueprint is a set of simple instructions (the blueprint) that allows you to control how your genes express themselves in order to build a strong, lean, healthy body with as little pain, suffering, and sacrifice as possible. The Primal Blueprint is also the first in a series of bestselling books I have written that all center around ancestral health principles.

Pushups: I get a lot of questions from folks who have shoulder issues or who are beginning body weight training. In both cases, people want an easier but effective alternative to the traditional military-style pushup—one that can help them build strength in a sustainable, safe way. I find the incline pushup is a great modification for anyone looking to get a solid upper body workout with less joint stress. #liveawesome
Nothing says comfort food quite like sloppy joes. Bring this classic back to your dinner table with our delicious sloppy joe meat sauce and grain-free buns that will deliver all the goodness!

Salads 🥗 can be as Big-Ass or as simple as mood and time dictate, but they always should be flavorful. We love this classic (and keto-friendly) Wedge Salad with Blue-Cheese Ranch Dressing for a quick side or (topped with some bacon crumbles) a light lunch or dinner. The best part…it’s made with staple ingredients that are easy to keep on hand AND only takes 5 minutes to make! Bright, colorful, crisp and rich, it’s a great choice for a midweek family supper or even an impromptu dinner party! 😋 #liveawesome
Kick off Game Day by giving your guests some delicious #keto and #paleo approved options. My favorite is dipping some chicken wings into @primalkitchenfoods BBQ sauces.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-
Savvy keto strategy: make enough wings for the big game on Sunday. Enjoy the leftovers during the week. Deep fry them in avocado oil (trust me on this…) and slather on your favorite BBQ sauce.
