This is our third day following the Primal Blueprint, an approach to diet, fitness, and overall health that has come highly recommended by my readers here.
Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, had two books on this site’s bestseller list last year, which is further evidence that I am in good company in this. I interviewed Mark last month, and I think he gave a good overview of what going Primal is all about.
It’s taking some getting used to, particularly for someone like me, who has grown rather attached to sweets over the past several years, and who isn’t quite convinced that eating the innards of a Philly cheesesteak with a knife and fork is superior to holding it in your hands and eating the whole thing. The first few days have been quite an adjustment. We’re going to do the 21-day program and see where it takes us.
My wife has started a blog that will chronicle our progress. She’s particularly interested in comments from people with children, since we can always use lunch and snack ideas, interesting recipes, etc. By all means join us there. (A caveat: you know I love you guys, but if you comment over there, no turning everything into a discussion of libertarianism and the state. My poor wife gets enough of that from me.)
- trade, inequality, and health care;
- why we shouldn't emulate Sweden;
- the minimum wage, and more!
