Website Review – Mark’s Daily Apple

When I started out on the journey to compete in a Figure Competition in November, I was a woman that did not understand what eating clean meant, portion size, or how all calories are not created equal. Isn’t a 130 calories the same? Does it actually make a difference if it come in the form of a mars bar versus a piece of salmon?

The answer is yes.

The first step I took towards learning the ropes of healthy eating and living, was to dive into Mark Sisson’s website, Mark’s Daily Apple. I went Primal.

What the world does that mean?  In my own words its only eating things that you can grow or kill and running around like a chicken with your head cut off now and again.

Mark puts it more eloquently:

– fresh, organic, unprocessed food – no junk!

– daily activity – whether it’s the gym or a walk along the beach, it all counts

– plenty of quality sleep

– plenty of water, no soda or sweetened drinks

– antioxidants galore – the key to limiting stress

– a good fish-oil supplement

– lots of essential fats, reckless amounts of vegetables, and clean protein

– time for fun – don’t take anything too seriously – ethical behavior – because what goes around comes around

– taking responsibility for yourself and your life – openness to new things and ideas

I highly recommend reading through his recipes, nutrition tips, and workout routines, as well as participating in the community.

Go Primal, I dare you!
