Welcome to Mark’s Daily Apple. My name is Mark Sisson. I founded this site way back in 2006 to fulfill my personal mission: to empower people to take full responsibility of their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness.

If you’d like to learn more about me, this site, and the Primal Blueprint health philosophy, I encourage you to have a look at the following pages:

Primal Blueprint 101



Mark’s Daily Apple is unique in that it’s not merely a hub of health and fitness information—although we do have all the education you could desire built into this dot-com—it’s also an amazing dynamic virtual community, and that’s all thanks to my awesome readers. Just browse the Mark’s Daily Apple Forum, the dozens (sometimes hundreds) of comments that follow each daily post, or the mind-blowing Success Stories, and you’ll see that the most gratifying aspect of our journey together is being part of the authentic, tight-knit community of real people that gather at MDA. I hope you’ll join us!

While this site is dedicated to ancestral health principles, there’s something for everyone, regardless of diet and fitness philosophy, because the Primal Blueprint is all about eating real, unadulterated foods that enhance optimal gene expression, engaging in functional and playful fitness that builds lean muscle and maintains ideal body composition, and practicing supportive lifestyle habits that foster stress-free, joyful living.

What started as a grassroots primal/paleo health blog has grown into a progressive, revolutionary (dare I say it?) empire made up of health and wellness champions determined to live their best lives ever, spreading health conscious advocacy wherever their bare feet may land. I’m deeply thankful for how my readers make Mark’s Daily Apple such a hit. And I hope you’ll join our movement if you haven’t already!
