Mark Sisson is an American fitness author and blogger, and a former distance runner, triathlete and Ironman competitor. Sisson finished 4th in the February 1982 Ironman World Championship. He has written several books, including The Primal Blueprint, which incorporates aspects of the popular Paleolithic diet. The Primal Blueprint is his fifth book. Sisson also blogs at his website Mark's Daily Apple.
In the 1970s, Sisson was a record-setting runner for the Portland (Maine) Track Club.
Doctors Michael and Mary Dan Eades, authors of Protein Power, commented on Sisson's book, "Sisson aggressively pokes holes in flawed conventional wisdom about diet and exercise that has led us down the wrong path for decades. The Primal Blueprint is supported by extensive scientific research and is simple and easy to follow -- not for a week or a month, but the rest of your life."
According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which promotes a vegan diet, Sisson's companion book The Primal Blueprint Cookbook, which contains many meat-based recipes, is one of the top "5 worst cookbooks of 2010." Sisson considers this to be an honor.
