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...

Gaining the Clarity of Body and Mind Helps Gain the Clarity of Soul — And a Giveaway

It’s Friday, everyone! And that means another Primal Blueprint Real Life Story from a Mark’s Daily Apple reader. If you have your own success story and would like to share it with me and the Mark’s Daily Apple community please contact me here. I’ll continue to publish these each Friday as long as they keep coming in. Thank you for reading!

To say our lives have been impacted by the Primal Blueprint and Mark Sisson would be a ridiculous understatement. The fact of the matter is, our lives are a direct creation from the influence that Primal Blueprint has had on our lives. We are Adam and Vanessa Lambert, creators of Bee The Wellness, an innovative personal coaching company based out of Los Angeles. This is our story.

We have all read the stories of success with weight loss and improvements to health and longevity here on Mark’s Daily Apple. What we don’t often get to hear is how the magic of this community and way of living can make a profound impact on the rest of your life. That is what the The Primal Blueprint has done for us, and we know it can do it for you too.

I Feel More Confident, Strong, Grounded and Energized

My doctor introduced me to Paleo eating in 2013 when I presented with symptoms of brain fog, low energy, anxiety, and mood disorder stuff that was destroying my life and career. He told me that he could not help me if I didn’t start eating meat again, and put veganism behind me.

Up to that point I had been a vegan for 13 years. I got into vegetarianism for asthma/allergies as a teenager, which lead me to being vegan. The allergies/asthma didn’t go away until I moved away from my family despite my best efforts to eat vegan and do tons of fasts, cleanses, and meditation.

I Thought Any Weight Issue Could Be Corrected With Chronic Exercise

I contemplated writing this Mark’s Daily Apple success story a few times over the last three years and every time I decided it wasn’t a good idea, mainly because I thought “who am I and who would really care anyway”? The other reason is the last thing I wanted people to see plastered on the internet are my before and after pictures, how embarrassing! Being comfortable and confident with my body is never an attribute I have possessed. I actually even used a before photo that was about 10 pounds lighter than when I was my heaviest, but that was because I didn’t even want to look at myself in the mirror at that point, let alone take a picture.

In the last two and a half years, since the publication of my success story on MDA, I?ve been consistently 100% paleo, and I?m doing very very well!

I’ve kept my total weight easily in check, and I even added some more muscle mass (about 3-4 kg more compared with 2014).

I kept the same eating habits, except now I usually don?t eat nightshades or dark chocolate anymore to prevent inflammation of the joints, and I practice intermittent fasting 5 days a week to naturally increase my testosterone levels, my insulin sensitivity, and HGH.

Being Keto-Adapted Is One Helluva Ride!

My name is Aaron. I’m 35-years-old. I live in the Lehigh Valley of PA where I am the only custom tailor. This is my story of how an innocent foray in LCHF (low carb, high fat) turned into a full blown keto lifestyle shift. What a journey it’s been and I’m only just getting started!

Ok, so let’s get the junk out of the way first. Last summer, I was freshly divorced. I had to move into a shoebox sized apartment where I fed myself a steady diet of ramen noodles, Captain Crunch, heavy imperial stouts, and copious amounts of sour candy….usually fueled by alcohol driven hunger and a new little appetite tweaker I discovered…cannabis and the munchies. It only took a few months of this type of living for me to feel incredibly sick.

 Hello Mark and Primal community. My name is Hilmir Petersen. I’m 35-years-old and from Iceland.

I got to know the Primal lifestyle community 18 months ago when I was listening to a Joe Rogan podcast and heard a interview with Mark Sisson, and you can easily say that I was really taken by that talk. All my life I´ve been a carbs spokesman and campaigner. But not any more!

I was born “in” a bakery—family business and grew up literally eating sugar out of the container in many kinds of forms, but I always loved being healthy and strong, so I starting eating more “healthy” = wholegrain (“healthy carb” and less sugar).
