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...

Vote for Mark’s Daily Apple in Paleo Magazine’s “Best of 2016”!

By Mark Sisson

mda_paleoawards320x240Perhaps it’s the competitive spirit left over from my marathon and triathlon days, but I love a good contest. And it’s that time of year again when Mark’s Daily Apple and all things Primal compete for the title of Best in Paleo Magazine’s Best of 2016 issue.

Here’s a little bit of backstory if this is your first year taking MDA to the finish line. Paleo Magazine is the premiere print and online subscription publication for all things paleo, primal, and ancestral health. Every year, Paleo Magazine accepts nominations and holds an open vote for the world of paleo/primal aficionados to pick their favorite examples of companies, products, forms of education, and entertainment that are the most cutting edge, relevant, and noteworthy representations of the community. Being on this list means you’re recognized as the cream of the ancestral health crop. And we want Mark’s Daily Apple and the subsequent resources it provides to be recognized for what they are: the leading examples in the ancestral health community!

In the past, we’ve taken home awards for Best Lifestyle/Fitness Site (MDA), Best Supplement Product (Primal Fuel) and Best Paleo eBook and Book (Primal Blueprint Fitness and The Primal Connection respectively), among others.

Once again, I need your help to beat our record. Paleo Magazine has expanded the “Best of” categories this year, and we have some good ideas for how to fill them!

Here are some of the many categories—and some Primal Blueprint sites, programs and products you can nominate.

So click here to head on over to the Paleo Magazine voting portal and submit your nominations for Mark’s Daily Apple, PRIMAL KITCHEN™, and your other favorite Primal and paleo resources.

Thanks for the support. I’ll keep you posted about the results!

  1. Wonderful to see how Mark’s Daily Apple has expanded in so many different areas of health, fitness, and wellness Mark! Thank you for all you do.

  2. Why not just put out an MDA Magazine and vote yourself best of everything every year. Much more efficient. You could even put “Winner – Best of MDA Magazine” badges all over your site and products. That would be awesome!

    1. I don’t get the sarcasm. It’s only natural for Mark to ask from the people who follow his blog, most probably because they find it helpful, to support it by voting. Personally, I do consider this blog and the information it provides among the best for a different number of reasons. Mark is in a business and needs his business to be ranked high. In my opinion there’s nothing wrong with that, quite the opposite actually, it’s in our collective interest to support ethical businesses which contribute to the promotion of good in our society, like people do e.g. for local farms, a good doctor, a skillful contractor and so on.

      1. You can both love something yet mock it at the same time. I think those are the only things worth mocking anyway. Mark, and authentic guy, is asking his readers to nominate his stuff and actually provides a long list of all the things you should nominate thus exposing what a farce these “best of” awards always are. He wants to win because he understands the value of the exposure it brings, not because it’s an award that signifies greatness. It’s a tool. And everyone else in his industry is doing the exact same thing and telling their readers to vote for them.

        So the publisher, the industry leaders, and the consumers all understand it’s easily manipulated and not an objective assessment of who really is the “best”. Yet they all participate it in because they all understand the value in the exposure and legitimacy it brings even though the process itself exposes that as a fallacy.

        I don’t know how you can not find that amusing.

        And see, now you’ve made me ruin the joke by explaining it 😉

    2. Clay you just lost your opportunity to be voted as the “Best Paleo Commentator”. 😉

  3. Gotta love some seal macadamia bars. But seal goes best with brazil nuts because brazil nuts have sealenium.
