Abel James


One of the most frustrating things for anyone trying to eat healthy is the amount of misinformation out there. Depending on who you listen to, the advice varies widely, and the disagreements come from all directions — doctors, researchers, nutritionists, food manufacturers or health food suppliers.

What we’ve all learned is just because something is marketed as healthy doesn’t mean that it is. Low-fat doesn’t mean it’s good for you. And what about the debate over everything from eggs to the type of milk you drink?

Abel James felt the same frustrations. So he “fired” his doctors, the ones who prescribed a heart-healthy diet, and embarked on a journey of discovery. In the process, he’s become one of the most listened to people in the food business. he’s a best-selling author and host of the award-winning The Fat-Burning Man Show podcast, which receives more than half-a-million downloads a month and is one of the most listened to podcasts, of any kind, in the world.

In his new book, The Wild Diet, Abel sums up his secret of weight loss in one sentence: “If you’re not in the mood to read another diet book from back to back, I’ll give you the secret to fat loss in one sentence right now: Stay away from sugar and processed grains, especially in the morning.”

Abel talks to his about his revelations about food and weighs in on some of the most discussed topics in healthy eating today, including soy and GMOs. Plus, find out why he thinks we need to add more fat to our diets, not less. And we’re talking the good stuff here — bacon, butter, eggs, cheese, wine and chocolate. He explains.

Find out about his own personal health journey and how he used his diet to get rid of his acne, high blood pressure and insomnia.
