  1. Love this interview and episode with Mark Sisson.

  2. Hi Vinnie and Anna, great interview! Wish it could have gone another 2 hours.

  3. Great interview!! I read Mark's book "Primal Blueprint" a couple years ago and it changed my life and my health. I lost about 10 pounds, I stopped getting heartburn–I was diagnosed years earlier with chronic GERD and took the prescription medicine 'Aciphex' as a result, and, a very annoying case of exema on my knuckle area of both hands cleared up! I am 52 years old, 5'9", 163 pounds, a runner, and general fitness participant- meaning I lift weights, bicycle, rollerblade, snow ski etc. I am currently training for a half marathon, my first one by the way. I have also noticed that after going NSNG's, the achy joints I experienced after my running workouts has ceased. I remember, very clearly, back when I was in my late 30's, that I felt like someone had beaten my knees, ankles, and hip joints with a hammer! And this was from running only 3 or 4 times per week. I was and still am not a high mileage runner. It made me think that by the time I made it to my current age that I wouldn't be able to run at all let alone walk unaided. Fortunately, such is not the case. Sure, immediately after a "long run", which for me at this stage of my half marathon training is about 10 miles, my hip flexors and knees are a little sore and stiff. But after some stretching and a good nights rest, I feel fine: very little if any residual pain. Ten or twelve years ago, heck five years ago, that was not the case at all. I would be achy and sore for several days if not almost constantly. It sucked! So I know this is all anecdotal but I would and will encourage anyone who is trying to lose weight or afflicted with any of the maladies (or more) that I used to have, to try eliminating sugar and grain products from their diet. Just try it for a couple weeks. But really give it a good effort. For the first several days you'll feel pretty lousy and you'll want to eat that cookie. Have an apple instead. Or a carrot or two. Or a nice piece of hard tasty cheese. Just keep it real– with the food that is and eat a bunch of it! I truly believe that some, if not all of the afflictions you have that you blamed on just growing older, will gradually disappear. Give it a shot! What's there to lose except some pounds and some pain??? Thanks for reading. Read Vinnie's book too!! It's a hoot!!
