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...Tell Me More
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!
My name is Matthew Gruttadauria, I am 22-years-old and live in Las Vegas, Nevada. For most of my life I have been a rather fit and active individual. I played sports throughout high school and college. Once I got out of college and began to work I started to gain a lot of weight and was always fatigued.
My typical eating day before I discovered The Primal Blueprint was fast food (mickey d’s, burger king, panda express, wendy’s) for all 3 meals of the day. All I ate was garbage and would eat candy and drink soda, and sports drinks (powerade, gatorade, coke). My diet was extremely poor and I was just starting to feel horrible all the time.
Then one day, one of my employees, Clark, started to talk to me about nutrition and exercise to try and help me lose weight and get some energy. Clark told me to purchase The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation. So I went home that day went on Amazon and ordered it. I then proceeded to read the book and took on the 21-Day Challenge.
I immediately started to see results and felt better. I was shedding the pounds away and not even working out. Once I finished the 21-Day Challenge I was shifted from depending on carbs and sugar for fuel, and I became a fat burner and felt awesome.
I have been Primal/Keto for about 1 year now and have lost a total of 60 pounds and feel absolutely stellar. I love and enjoy every bite of food I eat and have endless amounts of energy without having to constantly be eating. It feels so free to be on this diet, even though it’s not really a diet. It is a lifestyle and it completely changed my life, and I want to say thank you to Mark Sisson for guiding me to a new healthy lifestyle.
