Last week, I answered a bunch of the questions readers asked at the start of the 21-Day Challenge. You guys came up with so many great questions that I couldn’t get through all, or even most of them. So today, I’m back with another round of rapid fire answers to many of your questions. I talk about the utility (or lack thereof) of window-filtered sunlight in the winter, the need (or not) for 8 glasses of water a day, how fasting can impact fitness, why someone’s sleep might be suffering, which source of glycine is best, whether chlorine in a pool is bad for you, and many, many more.
With the U.S. celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, it felt like a good week to take up the question of compassion. In a week when we commemorate high human virtue (not to mention lend each other support during our biggest community endeavor of the year), what does it mean to offer compassion—and how did this inclination develop?

Now, on to the challenge details…
I announced this contest last week to give you a little extra time to work on it. And I’m publishing it again today just in case you missed it in last week’s post.
Per annual tradition, once again it’s time to make some delicious Primal dishes.
US Wellness has long been a favorite meat spot for MDA readers. A few years ago they donated pemmican and the popular 5 gallon bucket of fat. The last several years they’ve gone whole hog. And by hog, I mean cow. And they’re doing it again this year. US Wellness has generously offered up a cow to the winners of this contest.
Happy 2016, everybody! I hope each of you had a spectacular holiday season, chock full of laughter, community, and a few primal treats to drum up happy stomachs and warm comradery. Now, with January 1st just behind us, it’s time to make the changes and commitments we all need to set the foundation for an exceptionally joyful 2016. With a new year comes new goals, which is why our team is ready to announce our favorite, much anticipated goal achieving event of the season: The Primal Blueprint 21-Day Challenge! This year’s challenge will run from Jan 11th-31st, and we have quite the lineup of contests, prizes, and all around fun activities planned for everyone who wants to participate.
First off: This isn’t the start of a new longer-term Primal Challenge. 1000 days would be fun, but I’m pretty sure we’d run out of ideas — and sponsors. Apologies to everyone out there chomping at the bit for a few years straight of new contests and prizes. You’d get sick of it yourself; trust me. Plus, that shorter 21-day Primal challenge format works because it’s the perfect way to quickly kickstart real change, disrupt bad habits and establish new ones. Today’s challenge concerns long, lasting, sustained, momentous change that happens over a greater timescale.
Let’s try a thought experiment.
Think about 1000 days. Try to picture it. It’s a long time, isn’t it? Almost three years. A lot can happen in 1000 days. Why, in 1000 days, a person could accomplish any number of things:
A Bacon Bonanza prize package from U.S. Wellness which is comprised of all this bacony goodness:
Sugar Free Beef Bacon
Sugar Free Beef Bacon Tips

Squatty Potty – You think Grok took a seat on a porcelain throne when nature called? Of course not! Toilets are modern inventions. Grok squatted, and so should you. Why? Well, squatting opens up the colon for fast and easy elimination, which is said to relieve constipation, straining issues, hemorrhoids, bloating and more. But what are we to do? Is it time for all-out bathroom renovations? No, there’s a simpler solution, and that’s where Squatty Potty comes to the rescue. Watch the video below to learn what a Squatty Potty is and win one today by participating in this contest!
The first 15 participants of this contest will get a free Squatty Slim. Retail Value: $50 each.
Fresh Fish! – Courtesy of Wild Pacific Salmon, the winner of today’s contest will receive 2 lbs of their choice of fresh-frozen fish overnighted to their door. Take your pick from Alaskan Halibut, Alaskan Pacific Cod, Steelhead Trout, or my favorite, one of the Alaskan Salmon choices. Salmon freaks out there know what a treat this is; and for any non-salmon freaks out there, prepare to be freaked, salmon style. Retail value: $100.
BONUS: Use ALASKA when ordering from wildpacificsalmon.com to receive a $10 discount on an order of 10 lbs or more.
Pure Indian Foods Ghee – According to PIF, they provide the only 100% organic ghee available in the market that has been made using the milk of pastured cows grazing on rapidly growing green grass in spring and fall only, when their milk is most nutritious. As a testament to their success, Pure Indian Foods family just completed 125 years in the ghee business!
