The 2011 Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge Begins Now
Posted Sep 12 2011 11:57am
If you want to lose weight, gain muscle, reduce stress, increase energy or just generally look and feel healthier you’ve come to the right place. Oh, and you can win lots of cool Primal gear, too. That’s right, it’s the annual Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge!
Before we get to the specifics of the challenge, today’s contest:
The first contest of this 30-Day Primal Blueprint Challenge is a two-parter:
Retweet my most recent tweet: “The Primal Blueprint 30-Day Challenge begins today! Get in the best shape of your life and win cool prizes along the way.” (If to you “Retweet” sounds like something an annoying bird does each morning, see this .)
Your retweet will enter you to win the prize below and help spread the word about this challenge. Win, win!
A winner will be selected by way of a random drawing.
This contest ends at 11 pm PST tonight (September 12) and everyone is eligible.
The winner of this contest will win a pair of Vibram FiveFingers . I’ve been sporting these things for years now and can’t recommend them enough. They’re about as close as you can come to barefoot outside of actually being barefoot, so when I’m not shoeless you’ll usually find me in a pair of these.
If you win today’s contest you’ll get to choose your favorite men’s or women’s style and color.
And if that’s not enough, see today’s “mini contest” below for another chance to win a Primal prize.
The 30-Day Challenge Details
So what’s the challenge? To get Primal, of course! I hold this 30-Day Challenge every year to encourage Primal beginners to give this way of eating, moving and living a try because I know it works, I know how empowering it is, and I know it changes lives.
I also do it to motivate those that have been dabbling with the Primal lifestyle for a while, but haven’t fully committed or still have some room for improvement (myself included!), to go all in and resolve to finally tackle whatever it is they want to address in their lives.
The actual challenge itself is pretty straightforward. The details can be found in the image below. I recommend downloading the 30-Day Challenge flyer here , and clicking on the links to learn more about each of the topics. (And maybe print a few copies to hand out to friends!)
No sign-up required. Anyone can participate. Just commit to the challenge, and check back every day for motivation and guidance.
Above and beyond the challenge as outlined below, I encourage you to make your own personal challenges. Customize your goals to fit your needs and commit to 30 days starting now.
Mini contest: Share your own personal challenge in the comment board below and be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to PrimalBlueprint.com . Are you committing to sprinting once a week? Or to giving up grains? Or to learning how to cook Primal meals? Whatever it is, share it in the comment board and you’re entered to win.

The 30-Day Challenge Contests FAQs
The main challenge itself isn’t competitive but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some friendly contests along they way!
Over the course of the next month Mark’s Daily Apple and sponsors will be giving away thousands of dollars in prizes.
Here are some rules and answers to FAQ:
There will be a new contests nearly every day for the duration of the 30-day challenge (through Oct. 11), so check back daily!
All contest prizes relate in some way to the Primal lifestyle. You won’t find any miracle weight loss pills, tummy crunching sling-a-ma-doo-dads, or whole wheat health blast jazzer snackers.
Some contests will require a bit of leg work while others will require something as simple as commenting on a blog post.
There is no limit to how many contests you can participate in.
The duration of any one contest depends on the nature of the contest. Some will last a few weeks (to give you time to complete the contest task) while others will be as short as one day. All deadlines are Pacific Standard Time.
Contest prizes will be awarded either by a random drawing, by reader voting/polling or by an executive decision (who I think should win!).
Some prizes will only be available to United States residents. If you live outside the U.S. and win a prize that can’t be shipped internationally an alternate prize of equal value will be awarded.
I’m not being paid by any company that is sponsoring the contest with a prize.
All you have to do to enter today’s contest is to follow me on Twitter and Retweet my latest Tweet. Help spread the word!
