Mark’s Daily Apple
Mark’s Daily Apple is one of the premiere online fitness blogs that breaks down the core of the paleo diet and primal blueprint frameworks and makes it easy for people to follow.
MDA has over 300,000 subscribers and (in their own words)
describes themselves like this:
This website will show you how to take control of your health. You’ll learn exactly what to eat and how to exercise to get the leanest, strongest, healthiest body with the least amount of pain, suffering and sacrifice possible.
Doesn’t get much more straightforward than that.
Primal 101 is where you need to start if you’re going to dive into Mark’s Daily Apple. This massive resource page takes you through the basics of primal living (101 if you will) and will not only give you a crash course in all things primal, but will help you understand the entire MDA site better.
The Primal Blueprint is Mark’s best-selling book and framework for his entire eating habits (as well as life patterns). It’s a 30,000 foot overview version of what his entire site is about. Chances are, if you like the primal blueprint, you’ll like the rest of Mark’s Daily Apple.
Primal Nutrition is Mark’s nutritional supplement company that he runs in conjunction to his site and other writings. It’s very complementary to his other work and all of his supplements are very high quality.
Mark’s “primal” lifestyle will vary slightly in comparison with strict paleo diets. He allows much more dairy than strict paleo diets will usually consent to, but still maintains that any dairy intake should be in the form of fermented or less-processed dairy rather than items like skim milk which are promoted by many people as “health foods.”
Marks Daily Apple is one of the best overall sites for information on paleo and primal living. Check it out.
Mark’s Daily Apple is authored by Mark Sisson and his staff of writers.
