Level 1 Caveman: Primal Blueprint

A book being written by Mark Sisson called Primal Blueprint makes the argument that our hunter-gatherer ancestors were probably stronger, bigger, and likely smarter than us, and we should strive to adapt our modern lifestyle to that our (natural) paleolithic beginnings to maximize our health and achieve effortless fat loss.

Sounds interesting eh?

Okay, so cavemen didn’t have a Nintendo Wii, but but if they did I imagine they would use the nunchuk as a hunting device, maybe as makeshift bolas?

I’m still wrapping my head around some of these concepts, but much of what Mark has written at his blog, Mark’s Daily Apple, is perfectly in alignment with what I already know to be truth: avoid processed foods, exercise naturally, etc … give his blog a read.

A very personal blog called Son of Grok, written by a fella inspired by Mark’s writing, tracks the efforts of one determined nutcase trying to follow the Primal Blueprint, and he succeeds!  I don’t have to tell you that being a caveman in modern times ain’t easy.  Better yet: this guy puts up some amazing Primal recipes!

Be safe.


  1. Ah yes, fad diets. Very good for selling books.

  2. this “diet” has been around for 10,000 years – hardly a fad!
