Weekend Link Love – Edition 323

Research of the Week KStarr was right about “text neck”: looking down at your phone as you text is like hanging a 60 pound kettlebell from your forehead. Full study here. The more choline you eat, the lower your risk of fatty liver disease (at least, if you’re a Chinese woman of normal weight). Yeah, you […]

Crock Pot Turkey and Primal Stuffing

It’s easy to associate cooking a turkey with a long, laborious process and a huge amount of meat. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whether you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner for only 1 or 2 people, or you’re looking for an easier way to cook turkey so you can banish processed deli turkey from […]

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 […]

Change Coming to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans?

It’s about that time again, folks. The sixth meeting of the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has recently drawn to a close. Just one more meeting remains until the absolute final word on how to eat healthily and stave off chronic disease, obesity, and early death forever becomes available for public consumption. Isn’t it grand? […]

How to Support Healthy Skin Bacteria

Last week, I introduced the concept of the skin biome: the vast communities of microbes living on and in our skin. For some, it was unsettling. Gut microbes are out of sight, out of mind. But skin microbes are on us. They’re crawling, reproducing, digesting, and secreting various fluids and lipids all over the surface […]

8 Strategies for Cultivating a Vitality Mindset

When people say their goal is “to get healthy,” most of the time they mean implementing a few diet and exercise strategies to get a particular targeted result. They’re referring to a practical, circumscribed process. They may recognize that they’ll have to keep up some of the efforts long after the number on the scale […]

Bacon Trail Mix

Trail mix is usually a blend of sweet and salty ingredients, but it doesn’t have to be. This trail mix is savory all the way, combining roasted nuts and seeds with crispy bits of bacon and the delicious lard it renders. Here, cashews, almonds and pumpkin seeds are flavored with coconut aminos, smoked paprika and […]

How Not to Train for an Endurance Event

Dear Mark: Butter and Coagulation; Early Weaning and Growth Charts

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, we’ve got a quick two-parter. First up, I discuss the results of a 2008 study into the effect of high acute intakes of various fat sources on postprandial (i.e. after eating) blood coagulation markers. Since butter came out looking not so hot, a reader wonders whether this should impact […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 322

Research of the Week In Taekwondo athletes, a ketogenic diet improved physical performance (PDF). Using a foam roller reduces arterial stiffness and improves endothelial function. Playing action video games may improve general learning capacity, not just game-specific learning performance. Show More Summary

Just Walk It Off: How Walking Can Improve Your Emotional Well-Being

A few years ago, a friend of mine went through a particularly rough patch – one of those stretches in which life unraveled in continuous layers. She’d taken multiple trips through the emotional wringer. I was happy to catch up with her recently at a dinner party, where she was looking and feeling recovered, even […]

What’s Living on Your Skin?

The average human body has about 1.2 square meters of skin. Scattered across and nestled in its myriad crevasses and canyons would lie trillions of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mites. Before you shudder and reach for the bleach and a stiff scouring brush, remember the importance of cultivating and supporting the billions of bacteria living in […]

Expert Certification Adds Accreditation and Advisory Board

As you probably know, the Primal Blueprint Expert Certification that launched in late August has been extremely well received, and hundreds of students are currently studying to become Primal Blueprint Certified Experts. In fact, we have 74 graduates already, spanning 24 states and 7 countries, and you can read all about them at the Certified […]

Dear Mark: Kerrygold and GMOs, Primal Jainism, and Saffron as a Supplement

For today’s edition of Dear Mark, I’m answering three questions. First, the matter of Kerrygold butter. It’s the go-to option for Primal butter eaters, but it’s also neither organic nor GMO feed-free. Is this a problem and should I withdraw my recommendation? Next, can a person who eats no meat, no eggs, no seafood, no tubers, […]

Weekend Link Love – Edition 321

I hung out with Joel Zaslofsky on his Smart and Simple Matters podcast the other day. We had a great chat that I think you’ll love to hear, so go listen. Steve Marsh is an organic farmer from Australia who lost his organic certification after his fields were contaminated and infiltrated by GMO crops from […]

Crispy Skin Salmon with Nori Vinaigrette

Nori is known and loved as a wrap for sushi, but you don’t need a gob of rice to enjoy the mild-flavored, toasted sheets of seaweed. Toasted nori sheets can be ground into powder (a coffee grinder works well for this) and the powder can sprinkled liberally as a seasoning for meat, seafood, vegetables, sauces […]

A Decade Long Journey: How Primal Living Healed My Crohn’s Disease

Are You the Working Out Type?

I think we all know people who have for the most part enjoyed exercising throughout their entire lives. They played sports from a young age. They were always on the move as kids – running farther, biking faster, climbing higher, competing harder. On the flip side, there are those who have had to push themselves […]

The 10 Rules of Successful Exercise

Regular physical activity is important, and everyone pretty much agrees, but life gets in the way. Most of us end up trying to fit exercise in around a busy schedule rich in sedentary behaviors. We’re sitting all the time. We’re spending countless hours at jobs we may not necessarily love. Responsibilities pile up and time slips away before […]

Why I Don’t Trust the Acceptable Daily Intake Levels for Pesticides

The supernaturally rational adherents to the Skeptic religion irk me. And it’s not because I disagree with all their stances. On many issues, they’re right. But the systematic, overarching, a priori denial of the viability of anything that even sniffs of “alternative” health is ridiculous. I’m not even annoyed at how they deride the ancestral health movement. […]
