A Big Announcement (and Our Keto Team’s Day on Facebook)

6b20160e-93e3-4800-a28a-d81c1957fc0aI’m not often bowled over. Maybe it’s my age or personality, but I endeavor to take events as information (whether positive or negative) and not get too caught up in the feedback.

Today, however, I’m bowled over—and a little overcome. I’ll admit part of me wanted to title this a “big-ass” announcement, but who knows how Google reads these things….

Let me cut to the chase…

Late last night my staff and I found out The Keto Reset Diet has reached #4 on the New York Times Advice-How To Bestseller List for Sunday, October 22.

Needless to say, we’re all celebrating today.

When I started this project with my writing partner, Brad Kearns, it was first and foremost about living the keto experiment—literally applying the principles to daily life the way I’ve been doing for decades to design and hone the Primal Blueprint. In other words, I started it with the personal.

That approach has always been the ticket in my opinion. I don’t ask anyone to consider anything I haven’t already tried, retried, researched, and shaped into something that works in my own life.

This time around with The Keto Reset Diet, it felt like a new chapter. Although my health had been great, I went into it curious if these physical experiments would make as much of a difference now. I’ve always believed that to be the case, but the proof would be in the results.

And as I’ve gone on record saying, I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I was genuinely surprised. Okay, my mind was blown. At 64, here I was experiencing a level of mental focus and physical energy I hadn’t touched before. That’s when I knew—regardless of what happened with the book itself, this experiment had already been life-changing.

But it also made me more passionate about sharing the information with as many people as I could. I don’t consider keto a fad or bandwagon. It’s too personal for any of that. For me, it’s become a fundamental tool I’ll put in practice for the remainder of my days—not every day but enough for me to extract the most benefit with the least amount of sacrifice. Because, hey, that’s what Primal has always been about.

So, I want to say thank you to each of you—whether you’ve been here since the light-hearted early days of the MDA blog or you’re joining us for the first time today. Thanks for reading. Thanks for sharing in the discussion that has been the seedbed for The Keto Reset Diet and every project I’ve pursued in the last decade.

You better believe I’m honored this book has made the New York Times Advice/How-To Bestseller List. And my team is, too. But none of this distracts me from the personal reward of this project and the fun I’m having with it. I hope you are, too.

So, on that note, I just had to share the Facebook Live I had a blast doing yesterday with Brad Kearns and Dr. Lindsay Taylor, the coordinator and host of the Keto Reset Facebook Group (which this morning stands at 8822 members).

We covered a ton of ground and shared more than a few laughs talking everything from stair-stepping recommendations to vegetables (including, btw, my famed Big-Ass Keto Salad). Catch the replay here, and let me know what you think.

Thanks again, everybody, for your support of the book and of Mark’s Daily Apple. Have an awesome day.

Making Change Happen: A Transformational Personal Mastery Course

inline_social share mastery 4Hey, everybody! I have an upcoming post and VERY special announcement soon, but first let me share a great opportunity being offered by my friend and Primal Health Coach partner, Christine Hassler.

Many of you loved the “No Regrets” Masterclass that she delivered yesterday! I knew you would….

(If you missed it, you can still check out the recording for a short time. The stuff she shares is GOLD.)

By now, you should have a much clearer understanding of why your life isn’t where you want it to be right now—and what to do about it.

Gone are the days of wanting to change but not knowing where to start. Now you know the next step you need to take towards a life that lights you up.

Which is awesome…

(Do you sense a BUT coming on?)

BUT, knowing how to change and actually making change happen are two different things.

Awareness of your struggles is pretty much pointless unless you take action to transform them into superpowers.

That’s why I’m excited that Christine Hassler’s signature online program, Personal Mastery, is open for enrollment, and I’m inviting you to join.

Whatever you’re struggling with right now, whatever change you’d like to make, whatever is in the way of the life you want, THIS course has the answers.

Here are a handful of real-life examples of what you can achieve from this program:

  • Getting clarity what you’re really here for and pursuing that purpose with fire in your belly
  • Quitting the job that makes you miserable and starting the business you’ve been daydreaming about
  • Getting out (and staying out) of debt
  • Shifting the weight and rediscovering the confidence you have in your own skin
  • Finally getting over your ex and giving yourself permission to love (and be loved) again
  • Repairing or strengthening the relationships you have with the important people in your life

Christine only opens Personal Mastery once a year, so if you’re serious about creating a life you adore, don’t let this opportunity pass you by.

All the details about the course are here (including the wow-worthy bonus she’s offering this time around). And if you enroll using the MDA link to register, you’ll also get access to a FREE, fully writable PDF version of my Primal Blueprint 90-Day Journal, courtesy of yours truly!

One more thing…

If you’re interested in Personal Mastery but didn’t watch Christine’s live masterclass, you should 100% check out the recording. She shares a can’t-miss deal on there—but you only get access to it if you watch!

What I’m Loving Lately 96

Hi, guys!

First and foremost, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your replies to my brief CNC survey. It means a lot to me that you took the time to respond, and I’ve already gotten lots of great feedback and some awesome ideas for new content. I’m excited! I’ll leave the survey open through the weekend, so feel free to add a response if you’d like! Also, thank you for bearing with me as I transition into this new phase of CNC! 🙂

I haven’t shared a What I’m Loving Lately, so I rounded up this random mix, but I think you guys will enjoy it! Ok, here we go!

It’s that time of year again, and The Skull is back. Remember how much fun we’ve had with this thing over the years?! This time, Qman is in on the hiding action, and I can’t wait to see how ridiculous it gets! 🙂

Spider Donut from Dunkin Donuts – How adorable are these spider donuts?! I will definitely buy one before Halloween. I know a little someone who will especially love it! 🙂

My instant pot – I’m pretty sure I already gave this a shout out, but I’m lovvvvinnngggg it for meal prep! I can pretty much get my entire food prep day down to 60-90 minutes start to finish with the help of this baby! And, hello, spaghetti squash done in 7 minutes?! Best ever.

Yoga for Scoliosis: New Research Supports Side Plank Benefits – A reader sent this link to me, and I found it really interesting. Just wanted to pass along for those of you who have scoliosis.

Is effective nutrition like a good joke – is it all about timing? – This article was interesting and helpful! If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, scroll to the end for the summary!

THE PODCASTS YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE (PLUS, HIDDEN GEMS YOU’LL LOVE) – I’ve referenced this post a bunch already – lots of great recommendations!

Ten Sisters Sauvignon Blanc – I found this wine at Kappy’s (a local liquor store) the other day, and it’s a new favorite. It’s priced right ($10) and not too fruity. I really like dry, mineral-y Sauvignon Blancs, and this one is perfect!

Trader Joe’s Harvest Blend Herbal Tea – I’m trying to cut back on my caffeine consumption, so I’m drinking this tea on repeat lately! Love it!

When I was a kid – This post was spot on!

Kids Cuts Dinosaur Pasta – As you guys know, Quinn is the pickiest eater ever, BUT he loves this pasta. It’s our go-to lately when he refuses to eat (for days at a time).

Question of the Day

What are you looking forward to today?
