It’s Giving Tuesday, and while I know the world is full of good causes, today I’m highlighting one close to my heart. It’s one I’ve contributed to significantly because it matters on so many levels.
I’ve spent nearly 14 years working against the tide of misinformation out there around human health and agricultural agenda. Diana Rodgers has worked tirelessly and creatively for the same purpose. She’s just launched a crowdfunding campaign to finish what I think will be one of the most groundbreaking, revolutionary documentary films ever—one that has the power to turn the public conversation around health and ecology. But she needs support to finish and distribute this film, and that’s why I’m sharing her campaign today.

Good morning, folks. So, is it too soon to start looking ahead to 2020?
I’m joking. I’m on social media, I’ve seen all the posts urging, “There’s only ____ days left in this decade. What will you do to make it epic?!” (Feels like a little too much pressure, but maybe that’s just me.)
Still, the countdown to 2020 has begun, and I have a proposition for you….
How about this January, instead of the typical New Year’s Resolution to lose 20 pounds, go to the gym every single day, and give up wine cold turkey, you resolve to learn something?

And what if you resolved to do it with my help and with the support of the keto+Primal community? Did I mention I have a video—and a meal plan for it?Read More

Folks, I know many of you have been here with me and the MDA community for enough years to remember how this all began with the Primal Blueprint. It’s been such an awesome journey—and one that keeps evolving in incredible ways. I genuinely feel like it’s all been leading toward this one. I’ve poured my personal experimentation and hard-gained insight into every book I’ve written, but this one feels, well, like a whole new level of inquiry and practice. Keto has kicked off not just a dietary trend the last few years but truly a whole new realm of scientific research. I’ve been knee-deep in it in writing this book, and I’ve not only delved into these revolutionary findings but have also taken the integration of keto science and Primal lifestyle principles to an entire new level.
