I Began By Eating, Not Starving

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

I was 40-years-old, 205 pounds and only 5 foot 6 inches. I ate whatever I wanted. Which usually meant a sleeve of cookies, a quart of soda, a bag of gummy bears….pretty much whatever. Twelve years before I had been a slim fit Marine and had since put on 60 pounds without notice. My vision was getting bad, my sleep was never sufficient, my motivation non-existent. And obviously, my marriage suffering from my lack of interest, poor disposition and dwindling testosterone.

A Book, A Deal, and A Contest: Introducing The Bordeaux Kitchen—A Masterwork of French Food, Wine and Culture

Of all the books I’ve been involved with over the past decade, including my own titles, I have to say this one is simply unsurpassed in the level of depth and detail. This book is Tania’s life’s work, and her passion and comprehensive education spills out onto every page. The incredibly informative writing and phenomenal photography was all her, and she went all-in to the extent you rarely encounter. This book literally honors Primal Blueprint Law #4: Lift Heavy Things.

The Bordeaux Kitchen chronicles Tania’s journey through wine school in Bordeaux, a butchery apprenticeship, and the gathering of her vast treasure trove of recipes inspired by French chefs, friends and grandmothers. Tania transports you to the culinarily-rich French Southwest and demonstrates how “ancestral,” nutrient-dense, grain-free French recipes are optimal for nourishing your body and mind. Highlighting the latest research in ancestral health, The Bordeaux Kitchen enlightens you about the path to healing many modern-day, chronic maladies caused by nutrient-deficient diets. This is another area of deep experience and expertise with Tania, as her ancestral health journey has been informed and inspired by debilitating chronic illness likely caused by gut dysfunction from exposure in her world travels (FYI, Kazakhstan is a bad spot for an emergency appendectomy).

Sit back, peruse the beautiful recipes and photos and drink in the observations Tania herself shares with us today about French ancestral food culture. Her words, and her book, underscore for me how much is missing from our daily experience in the kitchen. The significance of ancestral eating isn’t only about a menu—but our relationship to food itself.

Finally, don’t miss the special Mark’s Daily Apple deal I’m offering for Tania’s masterpiece book….

Fasting versus Carb Restriction: Which Works Better for What Scenarios

Both fasting and carb-restriction appear to operate along similar physiological pathways. Both lower carbs. Both increase fat-adaptation. Both have the potential to get you into ketosis. Both lower insulin and blood sugar.

But is one better than the other? Are there certain scenarios in which an intermittent fasting protocol works better than a low-carb diet, and vice versa?

Let’s find out if the distinction matters.

And what scenarios are most impacted by any difference.
