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...

A Day In the Life of Keto

inline_Better Video FeatureI get the question all the time: “So, what does a regular day of eating look like for you?”—particularly since I went keto. I get asked when I typically start eating and how I schedule my workouts around fasting periods? What do my meals themselves look like? Do I ever snack? Today I’m answering all of these—and sharing more about my own personal approach to ketogenic living.

In fact, I’m laying it all out there. Get a (literal) glimpse of some of my favorite meals and find out why I consider my Big-Ass Salad the basis of my keto eating strategy. I’m sharing one of my favorite snacks and how I negotiate my eating window each day.

But I also talk about the little appreciated principles of a sustainable keto diet—how to do it so you’re enhancing your gut health rather than compromising it, how appetite and cravings self-regulate in the first 1-3 weeks, and why after a thorough reset I’m not fully keto all the time anymore.

I have a lot to say about the lasting impact of a Keto Reset experience on metabolic flexibility and protein sparing in the body as well as on the common mistake people make in focusing exclusively on fat intake rather than broad spectrum nutrition.

Finally, I explain why I consider ketones the body’s (too often) untapped superpower—and just how much we naturally produce in a day that we can live and thrive from.

Check it out and share your thoughts. Plus, if you’re interested in more day-in-the-life posts or video, I want to hear it. Let me know what you’d like to see. Have a great week, everyone.
