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.

Bacon pancakes sound like a sinful breakfast treat, but these slightly sweet, mostly savory cakes require no repentance. 🥓🥞 Fluffy, moist and salty with just hint of sweetness, bacon pancakes can be served with a light drizzle of maple syrup, or a dollop of sour cream and a hit of hot sauce. ⠀

My Family's Primal Living Achievements Empowered Me | "My headaches are completely gone, and I’ve seen improvements in my skin, energy levels, and cravings. I can’t remember the last time I had to unbutton my pants after a meal! While I am perfectly content with my body composition, it’s funny; I hardly think about it anymore."⠀

"I spent 25 years of my life overweight and unhealthy and knew that it was something I never planned to revisit. After finding the Primal Lifestyle, it took me under a year to lose 100 pounds. At 26 years of age, I weighed 207 pounds and wanted to spread the word." - Jared C., @primalhealthcoach & newest #PrimalBlueprint #SuccessStory 💪 @primalroots_healthcoach
