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...

Q & A Session at Free the Animal

By Mark Sisson

A couple months ago I was privileged to have Richard Nikoley of Free the Animal write a guest post for Mark’s Daily Apple. It was titled My Self-Experimentation and Transformation. In it Richard told his inspirational story of dropping 40 pounds (while adding muscle), lowering his blood pressure, managing his stress levels and ditching prescription meds by following similar principles to those outlined in the Primal Blueprint.

His story was also one of enlightenment. Richard came to realize that almost all mainstream health and fitness advice – the Conventional Wisdom we go on an on about here on MDA – was dead wrong. With this understanding Richard was able to make some major life changes. His tale inspired many readers as the comment boards can attest to. If you haven’t already read it take a look now.

Richard was kind enough to let me repay the favor, so I’ve put together a guest post for his site. A couple weeks back Richard told his readers that I would be answering any questions they could throw my way. Here are a few of the questions I answer:

  • What are your thoughts on an all meat diet?
  • What do you think about eating protein within an hour of a hard workout?
  • What would you suggest for those of us Primals who go on a cruise? Go for the fruity drinks with all that sugar, or stick to the beer or wine?

So go check it out and add your own thoughts to the comment board.

  1. I just got back from a cruise. Eating well was hard. Impossible wouldn’t even go to far. I got a nasty cold to show for my excess deserts. There is good food (but other than the main meal just barely), but you choose from a small list which often doesn’t have any good choices.

    Drinks were not a problem though, alcohol was expensive so most people I was with limited their drinks (except the one tour with free rum punch). Soda was available, but actually getting it was nearly impossible. My soda addicted friends complained loudly about their inability to get soda. Water was available at all times and since that is all I drink anyway I was fine.

    I wouldn’t plan a cruise again, but I would go with friends again if I couldn’t talk them out of it.
