“Sisson masterfully delivers a comprehensive guide . . . to finally achieve success as it relates to health and weight loss.”—David Perlmutter, M.D., author of Grain Brain
Mounting scientific research is confirming that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time—and that it might be the healthiest and most effective weight loss strategy ever. Going “keto” by eating high fat, low-to-moderate protein and low-carb foods enables you to break free from the disastrous effects of carbohydrate dependency by resetting your metabolism and promoting metabolic flexibility—where your body learns to burns fat instead of sugar for energy, even when you go off plan.
Unlike many other ketogenic programs that require challenging restrictions and deprivation or offer misinformation, Mark Sisson, bestselling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of the #1 paleo blog MarksDailyApple, presents a unique two-step, scientifically validated approach for going keto the right way. He first reveals the real secret to rapid and sustained weight loss, which is in becoming "fat-adapted" before entering full nutritional ketosis. It takes as little as 21-days to reprogram your metabolism to burn fat for fuel, by ditching processed grains, sugars, and refined vegetable oils in favor of nutrient-dense, high fat, primal/paleo foods—and you'll see immediate results. Next, you’ll fine-tune with Intermittent Fasting and then foray into full ketogenic eating for a further weight loss boost and improved health.
With The Keto Reset Diet, you can eat to total satisfaction by enjoying rich, high-satiety foods, and even weather occasional slip-ups, using:
• Step-by-step guidance
• A helpful list of toxic foods to avoid and nutrient-dense food to replace them
• Daily meal plans, including a recipe section with over 100 keto friendly recipes
You’ll use keto as a lifelong tool to stay trim, healthy, energetic, and free from the disastrous health conditions caused by the typical American diet. The Keto Reset Diet is the definitive guide to help the keto-beginner or the experienced health enthusiast understand the what, why, and how to succeed with ketogenic eating.
At age sixty-six, ancestral health movement leader Mark Sisson is still in peak athletic condition and exceptional health. He credits his ketogenic diet and complementary lifestyle practices as the reason, and rightly so—research has confirmed the anti-aging benefits of following a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb eating pattern.
In Keto for Life, you’ll implement a holistic plan of action to live a long, healthy, and happy life with Sisson’s Four Pillars of Longevity: Metabolic Flexibility, Movement and Physical Fitness, Mental Flexibility, and Rest and Recovery. Through mindful eating, moving, thinking, and resting, you can initiate DNA repair and cellular rejuvenation to actually reverse the aging process and halt cognitive or physical decline.
You’ll discover how to escape carbohydrate dependency once and for all, incorporate the most potent ketogenic superfoods and supplements available to boost brain function and protect against heart disease, dial in your sleep habits and recovery patterns for an immediate energy boost, and successfully manage modern life stressors like hyperconnectivity. And with the game-changing 21-Day Biological Clock Reset, you’ll create a daily longevity routine that feels natural and easy to permanently maintain.
Featuring more than eighty delicious, nutrient-dense ketogenic recipes from leading health and gourmet experts, Keto for Life will unlock your full longevity potential and keep you living well.
Primal Endurance shakes up the status quo and challenges the overly stressful, ineffective conventional approach to endurance training. While marathons and triathlons are wildly popular and bring much gratification and camaraderie to the participants, the majority of athletes are too slow, continually tired, and carry too much body fat respective to the time they devote to training. The prevailing “chronic cardio” approach promotes carbohydrate dependency, overly stressful lifestyle patterns, and ultimately burnout.
Mark Sisson, author of the 2009 bestseller, The Primal Blueprint, and de-facto leader of the primal/paleo lifestyle movement, expertly applies primal lifestyle principles to the unique challenge of endurance training and racing. Unlike the many instant and self-anointed experts who have descended upon the endurance scene in recent years, Sisson and his co-author/business partner Brad Kearns boast a rich history in endurance sports. Sisson has a 2:18 marathon and 4th place Hawaii Ironman finish to his credit, has spearheaded triathlon’s global anti-doping program for the International Triathlon Union, and has coached/advised leading professional athletes, including Olympic triathlon gold and silver medalist Simon Whitfield and Tour de France cyclist Dave Zabriskie. Under Sisson’s guidance, Kearns won multiple national championships in duathlon and triathlon, and rose to a #3 world triathlon ranking in 1991.
Primal Endurance applies an all-encompassing approach to endurance training that includes primal-aligned eating to escape carbohydrate dependency and enhance fat metabolism, building an aerobic base with comfortably paced workouts, strategically introducing high intensity strength and sprint workouts, emphasizing rest, recovery, and an annual periodization, and finally cultivating an intuitive approach to training instead of the usual robotic approach of fixed weekly workout schedules. When you “go Primal” as an endurance athlete, you can expect to enjoy these and other benefits in short order:
- Easily reduce excess body fat and keep it off permanently, even during periods of reduced training
- Perform better by reprogramming your genes to burn fat and spare glycogen during sustained endurance efforts
- Avoid overtraining, burnout, illness, and injury by improving your balance of stress and rest, both in training and everyday life
- Spend fewer total hours training and get more return on investment with periodized and purposeful workout patterns
- Have more fun, be more spontaneous, and break free from the pull of the obsessive/compulsive mindset that is common among highly motivated, goal-oriented endurance athletes
- Have more energy and better focus during daily life instead of suffering from the “active couch potato syndrome,” with cumulative fatigue from incessant heavy training makes you lazy and sluggish
Primal Endurance is about slowing down, balancing out, chilling out, and having more fun with your endurance pursuits. It’s about building your health through sensible training patterns, instead of destroying your health through chronic training patterns. While it might be hard to believe at first glance, you can actually get faster by backing off from the overly aggressive and overly regimented “Type-A” training approach that prevails in today’s endurance community. Primal Endurance will show you how, every step of the way.

Brad and Brian are prepared for viral acceptance by females and agree to show up and rock the house at any ladies book club meeting they are invited to.
