The book that got me started eating in a Primal way was Mark Sisson’s Primal Blueprint: Reprogram Your Genes for Effortless Weight Loss, Vibrant Health & Boundless Energy (Primal Blueprint Series), hardback cover. You can find it on Amazon although of course it is available directly from Mark’s Daily Apple, the great website with lots of resources for Paleo or Primal people. These days though I tend to look for bargains when buying books.
The Primal Blueprint has now been updated and is available in paperback. Mark has made a few changes to the book – “this isn’t just the 2009 hardcover edition reformatted and bound in paper. Instead, I used this new printing as an opportunity to go back to the original text and refine and clarify the Primal message on numerous topics such as fruit, nuts, how to lift heavy things, and many other points of interest. I edited and reworded numerous passages to improve readability. And I added a bunch of bonus content, including: a full-color, 16-page insert of seven of our favorite success stories and their stunning before/after photos, pictorials, detailed descriptions and workout log pages for the Primal Essential Movements and Primal sprint workouts, “hacks” for each of the 10 Primal Blueprint lifestyle laws to promote quick results in body composition, fitness, athletic performance, daily energy levels, and reduce disease risk factors and reliance on medication, solutions to common questions and stumbling blocks – pulled from MarksDailyApple.com reader submissions, commentary on diets and dieting, including compare/contrast of Primal Blueprint with other popular programs.”
You can read more about the changes to the book here on Mark’s Daily Apple.
The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram your genes for effortless weight loss, vibrant health and boundless energy (Primal Blueprint Series) is also available for Kindles, if you have one of those cool gadgets.
