Publisher's Summary

The creator of The Fat-Burning Man Show shares his revolutionary Paleo-inspired weight-loss program
Every month, half a million visitors download The Fat-Burning Man Show, eager to learn the secret of Abel James’s incredible weight-loss success. Growing up on a defunct farm in the backwoods of New Hampshire, James had easy access to a host of natural foods that a backyard garden could provide: eggs, fresh produce, and real butter. But as he got older, he started eating a "modern diet" of processed foods, and by his early twenties, James found himself with high blood pressure, insomnia, acne, digestive problems, and love handles. Following the typical dieting advice of “eat less, exercise more,” and despite running thirty miles a week and nibbling tasteless, low-fat, low-calorie food, his health only worsened as his waistline expanded.
In an effort to gain control of his health, James dug deep into nutrition research and discovered that everything he’d been told about low-calorie eating was wrong. He realized that our bodies are wired to eat luxuriously—and burn fat—as long as we’re eating real, natural foods that are grown on a farm and not in a factory. Incredibly, after just a few days of eating the most delicious "wild" foods that were rich in fat and fiber, James’s health problems began to disappear. And after forty days—and radically cutting back his exercise routine—he had lost twenty pounds.
The Wild Diet is the book James’s hundreds of thousands of fans have been clamoring for. At a time when our collective health is failing, James sounds a clarion call to announce that good health doesn’t live in a pill, exercise program, or soul-crushing diet. The secret is simply getting back to our wild roots and eating the way we have for centuries.
Includes a bonus PDF of meals and recipes from the book.
A leading voice in new media, Abel James is a bestselling author, musician, and talk show host. As the #1 most popular health podcast in 8+ countries, Abel's award-winning show, Fat-Burning Man, has helped millions reclaim their health with real food, cutting-edge science, and primal workouts. When his cooking app, Caveman Feast, bested The Food Network, Nickelodeon, and even Angry Birds with more than 1,000 5-star reviews in the 24 hours, Abel became the first independent publisher ever to hold Apple's #1 food app and #1 podcast at the same time.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Wild diet changed my Life

I have always been a relatively healthy eater, but hearing more about how the food industry works really changed the way me and my fiancée approach what we eat. We now adhere to the Wild diet and are loving every meal! We don't just eat to eat now, we turn ever dinner into a event with great anticipation that we truly enjoy together. This book didn't only change the way we eat, it strengthened our relationship by spending more quality time together.

An absolute blast

Where does The Wild Diet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of the most entertaining and liberating diet books I've ever read, fun, inspiring and overall insightful. I just felt freed from every dogma and preconception about diet and what I should eat, and accept that being closer to nature and ultimately having a more holistic approach to health it's what does make a difference. From a long time vegan who rediscovered ethical, healthy and wild meat, I cannot recommend it enough!

What does Abel James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I am just soooooo used to Abel's voice from his podcast I highly appreciate him spending the time to record these 6h+ Thanks Abel!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, totally, I actually almost did as I went out for about 4 walks in 3 days - I am pretty sure that contributed to the leaner physique I developed after listening to the book *wink*
