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. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Happy Holidays!

By Mark Sisson

A merry Christmas, everybody, and happy New Year! Like many of you, I’m celebrating with family today, but my thoughts are also with this incredible community at MDA. I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and looking forward to the new year ahead. In the coming week, I’ll be sharing more of what 2011 will hold for Mark’s Daily Apple and will offer up all manner of New Year’s tips, tools, and resources to help you with upcoming resolutions.

In the meantime, relish this time with friends and family and enjoy all your Primal revels, whatever they hold. Thank you all wholeheartedly for reading and for contributing to this community throughout the year. MDA wouldn’t be what it is without your insight and involvement. Peace to you and your loved ones as the year comes to a close.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t leave you with a little Primal inspiration for your holiday…. Enjoy!

        1. Actually Charles is a very noble person, not unlike a Samurai falling on their sword when defeated. I applaud you Charles. Pay no mind to these soft, rosy cheeked, coconut filled, modern “groks”. Keep on keeping it real.

  1. Merry Christmas to everybody here! I found the site during this past year, and oh, what a difference it has made! I try to pass on the message, and as long as you keep up the good work, Mark, I’m sure your blog will thrive 😀

  2. Thanks for all you do for us here on MDA. The weight I’ve lost this year from going primal is a true gift and blessing. Thank God I found this site.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. Merry Christmas and thanks for great advice and a lively community.

  5. After the last 2 days, I realized how good, great, wonderful I feel when I’m eating Primal. (joints ache, head hurts etc. from the sugar) Won’t be doing that again.

    Merry Christmas
