Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete.

Steak and Shirataki Noodle Stir-Fry

If you’ve been curious about shirataki noodles, but haven’t tried them yet, this recipe is exactly what you need. It shows how easy it is to prepare shirataki noodles and satisfy your cravings for an Asian-inspired noodle dish.

Shirataki noodles don’t have much flavor on their own, but when added to a saucy stir-fry they soak the flavor right up. A favorite way to serve the noodles is tossing them into a beef stir -fry with mushrooms and bok choy. This is an excellent stir-fry without noodles, but it’s fun and tasty to add shirataki every so often.

This stir-fry is delicious hot, but save some for lunch the next day. Shirataki noodle stir-fry is also really good served as a cold noodle salad.

Becoming Fat-Adapted Has Been the Key To My Success!

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!

At the end of 2013 I was getting ready to begin my last semester of college, but unfortunately I was quickly closing in on 310 pounds at 21-years-old. I knew that I needed to make some changes if I was going to enjoy this life that I was given. So I embarked on a journey to lose weight and I went about it the best way I knew how … Calories in vs. Calories out. I began restricting my caloric intake to ~1,200 calories a day and trying to exercise as much as possible. I would run close to 30 miles/week and try to play basketball or raquetball on top of that to burn the maximum number of calories possible. My diet consisted of relatively low carb, low fat, low sugar blandness that was miserable to eat, but I was determined to lose the weight so I willed myself through it with excuses like “ I lost the genetic lottery, so this is the only way for me to be healthy.” I was successful too, in 5 months I lost over 90 pounds and was leaner than I had ever been in my life. As the months ticked on, I found it harder and harder to maintain the success that I had found.
