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...

MDA Named “Best Men’s Health Blog of 2017”

What can I say…it’s a great way to end the week and head into the holiday weekend. I just got word that Healthline.com has named Mark’s Daily Apple among its “Best Men’s Health Blogs of 2017.”

In their words…”We’ve carefully selected these blogs because they are actively working to educate, inspire, and empower their readers with frequent updates and high-quality information.” I’d say that certainly aligns with my vision for Mark’s Daily Apple and for what I hope this blog and community offer reader and visitors every day.

But I’m not stopping there. In particular, I’m looking to add more information, more research, more insight for women this coming year. I’ve never called or considered this a men’s blog, but I’m thrilled male readers find solid and relevant information here. I want MDA women readers to feel spoken to with the same regard and depth for health issues and questions affecting them. And you can hold me to that.

Gratitude to Healthline.com and to all of you for being part of the Primal movement and the Mark’s Daily Apple community. Grok on, everyone!

  1. You’re definitely my favorite and I’m a woman. I’ve been following this blog for at least 7 years. Now, my husband also reads it!

    1. Actually I don’t know if that’s true. MDA is the only men’s health blog I read. But it is truly in its own class.

      1. Will, I’m with you. It’s not like I read other health or wellness blogs, but I think this one’s the best.

  2. Well deserved honor, I don’t know how Mark accomplishes so much every day and provides such excellent content day in and day out, but kudos for sure!

  3. Congratulations to Mark and everyone who works diligently that makes Mark’s Daily Apple the inspirational and informative daily read that I enjoy.

  4. MDA is definitely the best of its kind. I’ve recommended it to a lot of people, both men and women. Congrats, Mark.

  5. Two thumbs up Mark! Clearly deserved! What a nice honor, it’s not like there is a lack of health blogs out there. In my opinion, you humor has to do with you success, so please keep us laughing and growing with great posts like your coco article from this week! Obviously all your posts are great and a worthwhile read.

  6. My favorite, too! So informative and so down-to-earth. Always inspiring. (And looking forward to more posts focused on women.)

  7. MDA is the best – congrats! Personal opinion only (I’m a multiple eating disorders survivor, so read in that context please): it’s going to be harder to win over the over-40 female population because we have been inundated with ‘tips and tricks to be beach ready in one hour or less!’ etc. nonsense. I truly admire the younger generation who seem to have a much healthier attitude towards acceptance of the body type with which they were born and celebrating the differences. And they want to be STRONG not stick-thin! Targeting those of us raised on supermarket magazines would be so helpful. Thanks for EVERYTHING.

  8. MDA and the Primal Blueprint saved my life in 2009.

    I am forever grateful.

  9. I’ve often been dissatisfied with my subscription magazines like Men’s Health and Runner’s World, as they give totally superficial and almost always lame mainstream nutritional advice that is just plain WRONG, at least for me. I can’t wait until those subs run out so I don’t feel obligated to skim through them because I paid for them. Meanwhile I have often wished there were instead a ketogenic and or paleo version of Men’s Health, and then I realize there IS: MARK’S DAILY APPLE. Definitely the best health and fitness blog on the internet. I just bought a second copy of The New Primal Blueprint and gave it to my brother, telling him “of the 20+ books I’ve read on health and wellness, this is the single best one, highly-up-to-date and well-informed yet in a deceptively accessible conversational tone that should not lead you to underestimate the depth and richness of technical expertise and wise perspective on real-world application of the science and experience behind it. I also often recommend the Natural Health blog by Dr. Joseph Mercola, and the Empowering Neurologist blog by Dr. David Perlmutter.

  10. Congratulations Mark and Worker Bees! Since I have been reading this blog(about 2 years) I certainly feel more alive, vibrant, connected, human. Gender aside, I have learnt more about the health of our species here than anywhere else. Thank you so much. I feel like I’ve been given a shortcut to joy.

  11. Congratulations Mark! Well deserved award! I’ve been reading/visiting your website for sometime now and I must say, it is excellent! Everything I need to know is in here. I recommended this to my friends and they also say good feedback after they read it. You may be the men’s health blog, but my wife and female friends benefits from this page. You did a great job and hoping you’ll do a greater job in the future! More power to you Mark! Cheers!
