Doing Keto the Right Way: An Hour with Aubrey Marcus

By Mark Sisson


inline_Screen Shot 2017-09-05 at 9.59.27 AMA couple of weeks ago I sat down with entrepreneur extraordinaire, multi-sport athlete, and consciousness explorer, Aubrey Marcus, for an in-depth and entertaining discussion of everything from hangover cures to keto philosophy.

Marcus has always been one of my favorite people to talk with, and that morning in my backyard was no exception. We covered all things keto—from the mistakes people make in bottoming out their carbs instantaneously to the advantages of stair-stepping the process. I had a chance to share about my upcoming Keto Reset Diet book as well as personal details of my own experience with the keto state. Aubrey offered his latest favorite recipes (inspired by Primal Kitchen® products, no less!), and we talked in full but casual detail how keto dives set us up for genuine, lasting metabolic flexibility and overall health. There’s a lot of science and plenty of laughs here. I hope you enjoy, everybody!


Thanks again to Aubrey for a lively and fun discussion on his podcast. And thanks to everyone for stopping by today. Let me know what you enjoyed about our conversation and any questions it brings up for you. Have a great week.

Our Final Day of Summer Vacation

Heyyyyy, friends!

I hope you had a nice long weekend. Mal is back to school today, so we’re all getting back into the swing of things, which I *think* I’m happy about. I was all about getting back into a routine and having life slow down a bit, but now I’m feeling a little sad that summer vacation is officially over for us. I mean, it was really fun! 🙂 Anyway, here’s a recap of our final day of summer vacation!

I started my morning off with my usual overnight pumpkin seed protein oats, but, this time, I put them in an almost-empty peanut butter jar. I get questions all the time about the measurements, so here you go:

  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp freshly ground pumpkin seeds – I use this coffee grinder every few days
  • 1 scoop collagen
  • 1/2 scoop SFH Churro protein powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 cup water
  • big scoop of sunflower butter <— I just found a new one at Trader Joe’s that’s made from just sunflower seeds and salt – no added sugar!

After breakfast, we are headed to CrossFit for a Labor Day hero WOD. It was really tough and took me about 23 minutes to finish. I was totally exhausted by the end. Oy.


Post-workout, I enjoyed a protein shake made with coconut cream ice coffee mixed with vanilla SFH protein powder.

While I enjoyed my protein shake, Mal and I played with Quinn outside in the backyard.

For lunch, I tried a new recipe. I might play around with the measurements a little, but the basic recipe is a jar of marinated artichokes mixed with 3 ounces of crumbled feta and half a bag of baby spinach, over high-protein pasta.

I used 8 ounces of pasta, but I think 10 ounces might be better? Or maybe adding an additional ounce of feta? The mixture just seemed too saucy, but still really tasty!

After lunch, Qman took a nap while Mal and I caught up on some housework and random projects. Mid-afternoon, I was hungry for a snack, so I made some peanut butter and jelly rice cakes using fresh blueberries – new favorite snack for sure! 🙂

When Quinn woke up from his nap, we are headed to the park for some fresh air and sunshine!

We took Quinn’s bike on our afternoon adventure!

Soaking up the final hours of summer vacation!

Back at home, I whipped up a quick dinner for all of us. On the menu: Trader Joe’s Southwestern Chopped Salad with shredded chicken on top.

Easy-peasy and so delicious! I would definitely buy this salad mix again!

After dinner, we relaxed and played some silly games with Qman (you might have seen our Instagram stories – so funny).

When Quinn was in bed, Mal and I watched an episode of Ozark (great so far – love Jason Bateman!), and I ate a bowl of Pumpkin Spice Cheerios mixed with Peanut Butter Puffins. For a little protein boost, I mixed collagen into my almond milk. Perfection! 🙂

Question of the Day

Are you excited for fall or are you already missing summer?

P.S. Time is running out to sign up for our Post-Summer Slim Down! The deadline is this weekend, so be sure to hop on it! I’ll be doing the meal plan too and sharing on CNC, so I hope you decide to join me! 🙂

5 Ways To Drink Chobani

This post is sponsored by Chobani.

Drink Chobani

Chobani has always been so creative with its yogurt, and their new line of Drink Chobani is no different! The drinks are perfect for sipping on the fly or any time you might originally have thought to blend yogurt with milk. They provide the liquidity of milk with the protein and flavor of yogurt.

Drink Chobani

Made with only natural, non-GMO ingredients, they are an excellent source of calcium (with 25-30% of your daily needs) and have 14 grams of protein per bottle. The sugar clocks in at 22 grams, but a good portion of that comes from fruit and lactose and these have 1/3 less sugar than other adult yogurt drinks (these average at 33 grams of sugar per 10 oz. serving). The drinks are a great on-the-go option for active folks – like soccer playing moms! 🙂 Did I mention they all taste great? The Pina Colada flavor is my favorite.

Drink Chobani

Here are five ways we’ve been loving them in our house:

Drink Chobani

1 // As the “milk” for cereal

I poured a bottle into a bowl and topped it with granola for breakfast. I loved the extra flavor and thickness, and my cereal took longer to get soggy.

Drink Chobani

Guess who else loves slurping yogurt with a spoon “like soup”? :mrgreen:

Drink Chobani

2 // As a base for overnight oats

I combined 1/3 of a cup of oats with 2/3 of a Pina Colada Chobani Drink (my favorite flavor!) and a tablespoon of chia seeds and — voila! breakfast was served the next morning! I added strawberries and coconut to tie in with the pina colada.

Drink Chobani

3 // As the liquid base for a smoothie

With 14 grams of protein, these make a great smoothie base! I love the Apple Veg one with cucumber, apple, and spinach for smoothies sneak those veggies in along with an extra handful of spinach!

Drink Chobani

4 // The perfect healthy popsicle

No mixing required! 🙂 Just pour into molds (we have these silicone ones and I love them!) and freeze.  You’ll soon have a treat that is good for you.

Drink Chobani

5 // As the name Drink Chobani suggests – just drink ’em!

They make a great portable breakfast, post-workout snack, lunchbox addition, or road-trip fuel. Just be sure to keep them cold because they’re fresh food!
