The Primal Blueprint: Reprogram Your Genes for Effortless Weight Loss, Vibrant Health, and Boundless Energy
The Primal Blueprint shows that contrary to what just about every marketer, doctor, fitness trainer, or well-meaning friend or family member has told you, the answer to your problems is not to “eat less and exercise more”, “eat more whole grains”, or “eat less fat”. An honest look at human evolution and modern science shows that most mainstream advice about nutrition and fitness is based on shoddy science, corporate greed, and political bias, not what really works to maximize overall health, performance, and longevity. Conventional wisdom actually causes (or at least worsens) many of the ubiquitous health problems we face today, including obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, low libido, infertility, etc. No, you are not a lazy glutton who just “didn’t try hard enough”. You have simply been following ineffective advice that contradicts human evolution. In other words, you are not the problem; your methods are.
“My goal with the Primal Blueprint is to expose much of the lucrative health and fitness industry as ethically and scientifically bankrupt; to peel back the many layers of marketing blather, folk wisdom, and manipulative dogma, to replace it with 10 simple Primal Blueprint behavior laws modeled after the evolutionary success of our ancestors.” [1) Eat Lots of Plants and Animals. 2) Avoid Poisonous Things. 3) Move Frequently at a Slow Pace. 4) Lift Heavy Things. 5) Sprint Once in a While. 6) Get Adequate Sleep. 7) Play. 8) Get Adequate Sunlight. 9) Avoid Stupid Mistakes. 10) Use Your Brain.] ―Mark Sisson
