2011 Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge Updates

We’re now three weeks into this year’s Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge. (PDF) How has your journey been thus far? Staying the course? Have you turned the corner on the low-carb flu? Have you ventured to try any of the “optional” mini-challenges? Hit up the comment board below with your progress report. I’d love to hear how you are doing.

I imagine most of you are crushing this year’s challenge. In any case, I know that many of you have been busy. As part of this year’s 30-Day Challenge contests, you’ve created videos showcasing your talents in the kitchen and submitted pictures of your Primal life. You’ve shared your struggles (we all have them), success stories, and your favorite Primal recipes. You’ve put on elaborate Grokfeasts, bringing your friends and family members together for a Primal celebration. I’ve literally received thousands of contest emails since this challenge began. Now it’s time for the world to see your creations.

For the next week I’ll be publishing Mark’s Daily Apple reader-created content. That’s right. One week every year MDA is effectively run by you, the readers. So check back daily to see how other members of the community live their Primal lives and to vote for your favorite contest entries.

Stay tuned for Primal Blueprint Recipe Videos. They’ll be published for the next couple days, starting today, followed by a poll to determine the winning video. This will be followed by some awesome picture montages, featuring hundreds of pics you’ve submitted. Then we’ll see some Primal Blueprint Workout Videos and Grokfeasts along with polls for each.

A few points of interest:

  • I’m counting only eight Grokfeast submissions so far. Today’s the last today to join this contest and your chances of winning aren’t half bad, so gather your friends, snap some pics and shoot me an email by midnight tonight.
  • Due to the short notice, your chances of scoring the Primal Blueprint Workout Video prize package are looking good. I only have a few submissions for this contest so far. The deadline is tomorrow night, midnight, so get filming for your chance to win a bunch of Primal workout gear.
