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...Tell Me More
Hard to be believe just three weeks ago we began this summer Challenge. Over the last three weeks, people shared their individual goals, wins, questions, and stumbling blocks in our comment boards, on the Vimify app, and in the Facebook groups. As always, I’ve loved the energy of it and appreciated hearing from folks who may not share as frequently. It’s good to know you’re here, and I hope you keep coming back.
I’m excited today to share our contest winners—including our Grok pose champ, our Big Ass salad winner, and, yes, our Grand Prize taker below. And the winners are…Read More
Earlier in the challenge, I asked people to pose like Grok for a chance to win a pretty epic prize. The rules were simple, but the ingenuity and thought put into every submission were far from it. So after much posing, primping, and staging, we chose two finalists that channel the spirit of Grok himself!
Picking a short list of favorites was challenging, so the Worker Bees and I threw our favorites into a pot and chose the first two.Read More
This morning I shared how I’ve changed my approach to stress over the last couple of decades. For me, this meant first addressing the toll of my training. It’s how the Primal Blueprint, in fact, was born. In today’s feature and in this video (with my long-time friend and co-author, Brad Kearns), I talked about how adaptogenic herbs made a difference for my recovery. I formulated my own supplement to literally help myself first. Fellow athlete friends wanted to try it, and that’s how Primal Calm (now called Adaptogenic Calm) came into being. The fact is, like everything I’ve chosen to sell, my interest in the product sprung from my own story.Read More
On June 23rd, the world changes. Every RV, Subaru Outback, and pickup truck in every neighborhood across the country disappears from city limits. Expect the swoosh of fiberglass poles sliding through tent fabric to resound across the land and millions of campfires to produce enough smoke to block out the sun. Molted marshmallow flows will destroy hundreds of homes, and millions of fathers sitting on Doug fir rounds by the fire will tell so many ghost stories that they summon actual phantoms from the spirit world. The nation’s circadian rhythms will get a hard reset back to the superior factory settings, thanks to avoidance of artificial light after dark. Or so we could hope….Read More

Nearly a decade ago when I described my daily lunch as a “Big-Ass Salad” I didn’t realize it would become a thing. But it has, and it’s taken on a life of its own here in the office (and even on YouTube). The advent of the Primal Kitchen® dressings have only made it more so, especially with the staff’s observations of how much dressing I tend to use. (Moderation isn’t always a good thing.)
So, today the Bees decided to share their own “Big-Ass Salad” creations. To extend the theme even further, they want to see yours as well, and we’ve got a prize for one lucky Big-Ass winner.
Check out their creations below as well as the contest details.Read More
Not everything about the 21-Day Challenge and its mission to change your body and life is easy. But today’s something is.
I’m announcing the grand prize for this Challenge today because—well, why not start things with a bang.
This year’s grand prize might just be the biggest I’ve ever given away, and I know Grok would be all over this package if he could.
The Grand Prize:
Butcher Box has been a favorite meat source for MDA readers, and they’ve generously offered up an entire year’s worth of their meat boxes to the lucky winner. But that isn’t all. To offer you all the marinades and condiments you’ll need to enjoy these goodies, I’m throwing in a Primal Kitchen® “Build-Your-Own-Dressing/Marinade” 4-Pack and our brand new Organic Unsweetened Ketchup and Organic Spicy Brown Mustard every month for a year.Read More
The June 21-Day Staff Challenge begins right now! The community board on Vimify is already hopping this morning as folks share their goals in the Challenge and what they’re doing today toward those intentions. By the way, be sure to sign up on the Vimify app today, since it’s the last day to join FREE during this Challenge cycle.
As I mentioned in last week’s Summer Reset post, this Challenge is all about getting a foothold on the summer you want. It’s about living the good life at its finest and healthiest.
And today in the service of that aim I’m especially pleased to introduce the ultimate in 21-Day Support: the fabulous new Primal 21-Day Reset, a comprehensive online multimedia educational course that represents the single easiest and most impactful way to go Primal.Read More
How many of you will be joining us for the Challenge next week—and how many for the first time? (I’d love to see a show of hands in the comment section.)
The cool thing about the Challenge each year is this: everybody comes at it from a different place. Some folks are hundred pounds overweight and haven’t exercised in years. Some are at the top of their Primal game but love the community engagement and chance to encourage others. Most are at every stage in between.
Behind every participant across that spectrum is a fascinating story. Your story. The one in which you haven’t quite had the life you’d hoped lately—and the one in which you claim it back.
Today I’ve got some ideas and resources for you to consider. If you’re on the fence about joining us, maybe these can get you over the hump and get you committed. I sure would like to see you with us.Read More
