“A word of caution: Everything you think you know about diet and exercise is probably wrong. It’s time to change your relationship to fat, whole grains, sugar, the pizza delivery guy, and even your treadmill.

In a sea of marketing hype, Abel James is a powerful and authentic voice that speaks the truth.”

“When I found myself overweight and struggling with my health despite doing my best to follow all the current dietary dogma of the day, I started seeking some alternatives. Somehow I landed on a podcast called "The Fat Burning Man Show." The host, Abel James, was telling his story and it sounded like he had peaked at my diary. Everything he spoke about resonated with me. I began incorporating the principals of The Wild Diet into my own life and fifty pounds later, I'm a different man.
When I reached out to Abel to say "thanks for the great info" I got more than just "you're welcome." I made a new friend. I can tell you that Abel is the real deal. He lives The Wild Diet. The Wild Diet isn't the latest fad diet book designed to line the author's pockets only to regurgitate the same old, tired eat less and exercise more mantra. It's a comprehensive, no nonsense guide to healthy living. It's packed full of common sense that our grandparents or great-grandparents knew but somehow we've forgotten. Abel has re-discovered these truths and he shares them all right here in this book… plus more. “
