Let’s go hang out with Mark.
Where To Find Mark Sisson
Read Mark Sisson’s blog over at Mark’s Daily Apple, where he’s been sharing a new post every day since 2006, for 15 years now.
To make meal prep even easier, be sure to check out Mark’s healthy and convenient food line, Primal Kitchen. A few of our favorites, include Mayo made with avocado oil (instead of junky soybean oil) and Chipotle Lime Mayo with Avocado Oil (great for making deviled eggs), Hawaiian Style BBQ Sauce, Cesar Dressing, Roasted Garlic Marinara, Spicy Organic Unsweetened Ketchup, and a whole lot more.
In addition to Two Meals A Day, you can pick up more of Mark Sisson’s bestselling books, including The Keto Reset Diet, The Primal Blueprint, The Keto Reset Cookbook, 21-Day Total Body Transformation, Primal Endurance, and many more.
Mark: I’m @MarkSissonPrimal on Instagram, and there’s an occasional shirtless shot of me there. I took a year off and didn’t post anything, but I think I’m going to start up again.
And once again, the book is Two Meals A Day, and you can pick up a copy right here on Amazon.
Before You Go…
Here’s a review for The Wild Diet audiobook that recently came in on Audible. They rate it 5 out of 5 stars and say…
“A must read. Easy to understand, gives you a new (although ancient) way to look at the food that we consume.
For example I’ve always thought my breakfast was healthy because I’d usually have almond milk with honey brand cereal, when I looked at the ingredients and realized how much sugar I was consuming so early in the morning and how bad it was for me I understood why has been so hard to get rid of my spare tire despite doing so much effort at the gym and kitchen.”
Hey, thanks so much for writing that review.
Yeah, when I wrote The Wild Diet, which is now back in 2014, many years ago, I really wanted you to have pretty much everything you need to know in one place as well as some recipes to get you started.
The main principles to help you take your health into your own hands with real food and practical movement based on the movement of our ancestors.
And we dig in a lot more in today’s show with Mark, on why breakfast might not be the best idea for some people, so be sure to listen to this one.
Thank you so much for leaving a review for the book even after all these years. I appreciate hearing from you and I really hope that The Wild Diet is a resource that can help you and your family and friends for many years to come.
