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
UPDATE: The special offer outlined in this blog post has come to an end. Many thanks to everyone that participated in this book launch offer. Grok on!
After The Primal Blueprint was released in 2009 I started receiving recurring back-handed compliments along the lines of, “Wow – really comprehensive work Mark, great detail and excellent research. But…what exactly do I do now? The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Total Body Transformation is the answer to that question. It’s a practical, action-oriented guide for how to eat, exercise and live Primally – a step-by-step, “cut to the chase” resource to make a smooth and quick transition into a Primal lifestyle. In it I tell you exactly what to do every day for 21 days to take control of your health for the rest of your life.
I believe that this is the book that is going to take the Primal movement mainstream, and we in the Primal community must do everything possible to land this baby on the New York Times best-seller list as soon as the book hits the street (now!). I need your help to do that, so I’m offering some fantastic free gifts (including free books! see the 8 book offer below) for this urgent promotion that expires on Monday, October 24, 12 pm PST.
The 21-Day Total Body Transformation is all about making Primal living easy – distilling the philosophy of the Primal Blueprint (detailed in the 2009 hardcover volume) into 8 Key Concepts, 5 Action Items, and a lively 21-Day Challenge of daily endeavors in the areas of Diet, Exercise, and Lifestyle – with corresponding journal exercises.
Friends and members of the MarksDailyApple.com community have asked for an easy, practical, and visual book on how to get Primal quickly. Well, if you can spare an hour a day for just 21 days, I guarantee that you will reprogram your genes and transform your life with this guidebook.
There’s something in this for everyone. If you’re a Primal enthusiast, you will enjoy the extensive commentary that picks up where the book, the blog, and my Primal seminars left off. Yes, this is a must read and you won’t be sorry, even if it reviews some of your existing knowledge base. Here I detail how to transition from a sugar burner to a fat-burning beast, reprogramming your genes to reject a carbohydrate-based metabolism in favor of burning stored body fat – and manufacturing glucose and ketones on demand to stabilize blood sugar and hormone function.
I clarify and expand certain themes that have been covered in passing in other publications, such as the integral role of complementary lifestyle practices (excess artificial light and digital stimulation compromising weight loss efforts, anyone?), and covering the spectrum of choices from best to worst in each Primal food category in more detail than ever before. We’ll dig into some fun new stuff like my favorite Primal tagline: Live Long, Drop Dead! (you know, healthy and fit till the very end, like hunter-gatherers), explore further why grains (and legumes for that matter) are bad and fat is good, and expand on exercise themes such as adding more daily movement to dial-in a Primal exercise program regardless of your fitness level.
If you are new to the Primal scene, this book is one-stop shopping for all you need to know to enjoy the most life-altering benefits of living Primally within 21 days. If you are currently Primal-aligned and wish that somehow, some way, you could bestow the “secret” onto family or friends who are too reluctant or too busy, this book should definitely do the trick. It’s beautifully designed and illustrated and packed with over 100 color photos and concise section summaries – a page-turner even for the most attention- challenged among us in the digital age.
Inside the 192 pages you’ll find:
