Contest: Be Featured in the Upcoming Book The Primal Teen

The Primal TeenWhen you guys ask, I certainly try my very best to deliver. Within the Primal community there’s been a growing demand for information about the differences between being a Primal man and woman, like the effects of fasting, battling cellulite, and dealing with menopause. As many of you know, my wife Carrie began her research on the topic and we are eagerly bringing you Primal Woman mid-next year.

However, is there another group of individuals I’ve left out? What about teenagers? I’m sure you all remember growing up and dealing with new hormones, peer pressure, and the opposite sex. Heck, if you can’t remember that far back, you probably have some youngsters of your own going through these issues as we speak.

If listening to mom tell them what to eat isn’t sticking, and The Primal Blueprint is too big of an undertaking at their age, you’ll be as excited as I am about our latest addition to Primal Blueprint Publishing, The Primal Teen: A Health, Fitness, and Lifestyle Survival Guide for the Modern Girl currently being written by Leslie Klenke. (Don’t worry; she will deliver a Primal Teen for boys next, but ladies first!)

Leslie and Mark at PrimalCon OxnardI had the pleasure of meeting Leslie at PrimalCon Oxnard back in April of this year. Shortly thereafter, she stopped by the offices in Malibu and pitched her idea for The Primal Teen. I know there is a large audience for this kind of content and trusted right away that Leslie was the right person for the job. She truly presents the information I have shared with you all in The Primal Blueprint in a voice that any teen girl will relate to. (It’s even an excellent refresher course for adults – think CliffsNotes for a woman at any age.) Leslie has left no topic uncovered: the 10 Primal Laws, meal and fitness plans, puberty, motivation, DIY recipes and beauty products, and the reason I’m coming to you today – teen success stories.

In order for Leslie to share all of your truly inspiring teen success stories, she needs a way to collect them first. When she asked me to reach out to Mark’s Daily Apple readers, I was more than happy to share her request and get your Primal teenage daughters involved in this project. Whether your daughter has been Primal alongside you since you started or if she’s just now getting her toes wet, this could be her opportunity to get published and share her story with millions of other teens facing the same challenges.

The Prize:

Fame, riches, notoriety. Kidding, of course. But this is your chance to be featured in the upcoming book The Primal Teen. Share your story with thousands of other teens so they can learn from what you’ve already accomplished. This is an opportunity to change lives and help people. I’d say that’s prize enough, but hey, you’ll get free copies of the book for friends and family, too, of course!

You’ll also be entered to win the regular Share You Success Story contest prize package: 2 PaleoKrunch Samplers, 2 Steve’s Club Samplers, 2 Seasonal Samplers, 2 PaleoChef Samplers, 2 Sauce Samplers, a 10 meter Blackthorn Battle Rope, a Blackthorn Sling Trainer, Nick’s Grass-Fed Beef Sticks, and a Primal Essentials Kit.

The Contest:

Share your Primal teen success story by filling out this form.


You must be a teen (between 13-19 years old), and a girl. No middle aged guys dressed in a wig and makeup.

The Deadline:

October 7, midnight PDT. Less than two weeks away!

How the Winners Will Be Determined:

Leslie, myself and the Primal Blueprint Publishing team will choose select stories to be featured in the book.
