How do I learn about Primal?

Post by Rig D on Wed Dec 13, 2017 1:07 pm

This thread is aimed at the true “newbie” to Primal. So if you are looking to improve your overall health, maybe lose weight in the process, and want to improve your LGN factor (looking good naked) this should help get you going in the right direction.

You will find that Primal Blueprint is significantly more encompassing than just changing your diet. It is very important that you develop a good understanding of what should be involved before you jump in. The best way to do so is spend some time reading what the founder of PB has to say on the topic. I recommend that you spend a fair amount of time building your understanding before you jump in.

All the links referenced below are current as of today 12/14/2017

The site for all things “Primal” is https://www.marksdailyapple.com/ There is also Primalblueprint.com which also has some information, but primarily is a sales vehicle for Sisson's line of food and supplements

The guy behind the Primal Blueprint is Mark Sisson, he is now in his 60's and in his younger days was a top flight marathon and triathlon guy. Don't let that scare you off – he's radically changed his view on achieving good health since his days as an elite jock.  The web site is a multi-faceted animal, and the guy in the pictures is Sisson, with a remarkable physique for a guy his age.  At the top of the home page is the “Latest and Greatest” which links into his daily blog of food recipes, medical analysis, other Primal topical interest articles.  As of this writing, he has a new book focusing on Ketosis, and his recent blogs are heavily focused on Keto. Please note that the Primal Blueprint does not require Keto, and you shouldn't need to address keto, maybe never, but certainly not in your initial efforts.

When you go to the site,  scroll down to the section “What is the Primal Blueprint” and click the explore button, which takes you to the Primal Blueprint 101 page: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/

Read everything in “the Basics” section.  It is a lot to go over, but I really encourage you to get as informed as you can before you launch.

After that, just review what's interesting to you in the “definitive guides.” Note that Sisson has written a variety of books explaining the Primal Blueprint, recipes, etc.  He also runs a supplement outfit and a food company and his stuff is available for purchase on the site. But is not shoved at you. All the key information about the program is free on the web site, just not as tightly packaged as his books are.

On the PB101 page, you can also sign up for the free newsletter. This is supposed to also get you a 92 page E-book, but some folks haven't been able to get the e-book.  This link will give it to you (thanks LB):
http://www.crossfitpraha.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Primal_Blueprint_Fitness_eBook.pdf

At the top of all MDA pages are two menu bars, one top left, one lower on the right. If you need inspiration, click on Success Stories – You can read about a variety of folks who've changed their lives with PB. There is always one new posting here each week.

On the top menu, you will see Forums Note that the MDA forum is no longer operating and is trying to re-establish on FaceBook. Where we are now at Primalforums is a spin off that was founded by Ontario and has a lot of the former active MDA user base enrolled. But the MDA forum is still out there to read and has a huge variety of posts on almost any topic dealing with health and wellness as well as a mountain of spam. You can click on the various forum group headers to see the type of content. You can also search the site for various topics of interest by using this link:http://forum.marksdailyapple.com/advanced_search

Lastly, there are two podcast sites that are tied into Primal.
The first is the Primal Blueprint podcast and is linked off the MDA home page. The link is at the very top and takes you to http://blog.primalblueprint.com/

The second is for endurance athletes and can be found at http://www.primalendurance.fit/podcasts/
