It sounds like you were in a pretty good spot. Abel, Love the podcast; reading the book. A Clarity podcast would be amazing. Thanks for all the info, even if it can be overload!! Hey Jeff, I hear you. Glad there is a podcast to help with the other aspects of daily living. Ha, I love this comment.
I certainly enjoy mine. This looks healthy and a diet I can live with. Thanks Suzanne. I was actually referred to you and your site by Antonio Centeno. Is it possible that grains, starches, and sugar can cause fat gain? Absolutely, but only in the context of excess consumption. Would like to get your feedback particularly on the quote above and any other insight you might have as far as how sustainable this would be for a business professional whose lifestyle is fast paced and involves restaurant outings.
Aside from not giving up wine thanks Abel! Thank you. Hi Richard, Thanks so much for the update. My goodness. Well, things like bacon and coconut oil are easy to swap out for other fats grassfed butter, macadamia, avocado, olive oil, other animal fats, etc. Yes, please listen to the shows. I just posted show number 65 — tons of info that will clear up ever question above. So, in a month, im turning Buenos Dias Abelino!
You are a Fountain Of Information! Your Podcast are an excellent source of good credible information I have 3 weeks of Sobriety from the chains of industrialized, processed, Contaminated,multi- ingredient foodstuffs!!! And i credit that to you and my new lifestyle…. I fired my Doctor!!!!
Again Thanks your doing an Awesome job , helping people undestand the conventional wisdom is not wise, amen! I know you personally eat a diet high in good fats but I was wondering what you thought about the fact that DR Loren Cordain says lots of lean meats which are high in protein are best. And then you have people like Colin Campbell says too much animal protein is problematic and linked to degenerative diseases.
Have you ever covered that topic and similarly the research of Dean Ornish and Mcdougall? Awesome question Mitchell. It appears as this is not a diet for a vegetarian. Is this correct? If a vegetarian can do this diet how would they? It can certainly be adapted for vegetarians.
The main tenet of a Wild Diet is just eating real, whole, unprocessed foods. Sounds good for anyone and everyone right?! Hi Able, Just recently found your site, very interesting and will try. Would be interested in hearing your thoughts. No dairy, coconut is Bad???? This all gets sooo confusing. Conventional dairy is a good idea to avoid. Read this new book, follow this new program, diet or food plan, take this pill or supplement and swallow these good bacteria. Make a raw egg and liver in a smoothie yikes! NOooo and drink it right out of the blender. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
The most important factor is to adjust according to what works best for your body. The idea of all of these podcast, books etc. My personal success has been about 20 pounds off me in two months. Thankfully your delicious recipes will keep me on the right track. Awesome Kristina! Feel free to post some photos of your creations to the Facebook page, we would love to see them!
Hi Abel I just thought I would let you know that the Anchor brand of butter in the UK is now not from New Zealand, so can no longer be relied on to be from grass fed cows all year round. It looks like we are left with Kerrigold from Ireland to guarantee year round grass fed dairy. Do you know if butter from Normandy is grass fed all year round? Unsalted Normandy butter tastes good, so I think it might be solely from grass fed cows, but you can never be sure. Keep up the good work.
If I am allergic to butter, what are the best fats to load up on to keep my ratios in fat burning mode and still keep my omegas balanced? I have quit sugar, bread, rice, potatoes, corn, legumes, etc. I have put 10 pounds back on frim where I was 2 years ago. Any suggestions? I am interested in eating a loosely based paleo diet. I know there are a lot of benefits to vinegar and balsamic vinegar, but what about flavored balsamic vinegar? Sorry if you posted about this elsewhere!
Love your podcasts, they keep me going during workouts! In fact that is what I suggest we would do, as we have evolved on a wild diet until relatively recently. The latest hypothesis in paleoantropology is that before we knew how to hunt we started as scavengers, following lion packs and getting their already-hunted leftovers. In that context, we would have, for a consistent part of our evolution, eaten bone marrow, brain fat and collagen-rich ribs. How goes it? Thank you so much for writing your book and sharing your story! Looking forward to learning from your work.
As an individual who has struggled with weight for many years, I am grateful for Abel for three reasons. The Wild Diet helped me lose 22 pounds in 4 months. I sleep better on the wild diet. I used to have insomnia, but now, I can sleep with relative ease. My eyes are brighter. This could be tied in to number two, as with less sleep, the less vibrant I looked. All in all, with the help of Abel James, my appearance has improved dramatically and I would like to thank him and his team if he has one for all the work put into this site and show. The content is so rich.
I am happy to be here and would not take advice from any other health guru without first consulting the wild diet. Hey Abel. Just discovered your podcast and after listening to a fee episodes decided to buy your book. Hi Abel! Can you or anyone reading this point me in the right direction?

I just bought your ebook and am reading it…. What do you think about low-carb diets vs your wild diet? Listened to your whole book in one day on Audible. Great info. Great book! Read it today. Always looking for other resources to use with my patients and when I am speaking at our national and international spine society meetings. I use many of these principles with my patients as we are dialing into what work best for them based on their unique clinical picture and physiology. Love that you included your own story of struggles as well.
My story is similar and being open about it, I have found, it is a very effective tool to motivate people by reassuring them we understand their struggles. Quality of food is essential! Loved that you included information on exercise Burpees are a favorite of mine using HIIT principles and the section on sleep. I also love that you specifically addressed differences between men and women. This is often overlooked, but is a real factor and something that I see in my office every day.
Keep up the great work. We should chat. Just bought the book and it is amazing — I have a question about the fast.
How long do you fast until you begin eating three times a day? I would like to know if it is for 40 days or one week? Can you please tell me how to proceed? Thank you so much! Thanks for your support! Can you have your Customer Care team also send me an email with it or the link to it? Greg M. One has to only watch 1 episode of Life Below Zero with Glen eating his moose fat and all to realize we need a natural food source. We like to bend the rules when it fits into our own addictions. We have a tendency to look at food based on the insulin curve and not in the context of growth factors.
Cordain is the real deal… he looks at the relationships of growth factors and hormones in dairy. Grass fed dairy still has these factors. We need to eat in a fashion that allows our body to regulate our own hormones and feedback loop. I love cream as much as the next guy, but I want my testosterone at peak levels for fat burning to take place. Eat high quality meat, vegetables, and a little fruit in season.
The plains Indian before our intro is a great example as how to eat. Loren Cordain is right on target. As a dairy lover, I look forward to more research. I was just wondering, is there a difference between the Wild Diet and the Mediterranean Diet? No criticism of the Wild Diet — it looks great. I just wanted to know if the Wild Diet is as health as the Mediterranean Diet as I believe that this diet is very healthy but I like how the Wild Diet also focuses on fitness.
Your thoughts would be really helpful. I also want to thank you for giving me permission to fast during the day. But on the other hand you have stated that you will eat leafy greens several times during the day. Hi Mike, thanks for the kind words! Then the big feast is in the evening. My best advice — follow your natural hunger. You reference a few articles but omit the core authors. It is very evident to me that while lowering carbs has benefits for weight loss it is not necessarily the best template for living to Most Paleo writers omit this.
This level of activity is not only good for multiple health factors. It is what allows us to eat much more than moderns do, and to eat anything we can digest like omnivores should. The miracle of metabolism. One last point. As with the dismissal of high carb diets as unhealthy, please get off your high horse a little. No Tescos to buy your Lard, Butter, cocconut oil, olive oil so how they some up with this is the diet we evolved with is beyond me. What we did evolve with is an ability to go into ketosis, i. So then we come to diet, McDougal has on YouTube one of his patients who cured himself of fatty liver with the high starch diet, and other docs with high fat diet, good fats I understand are needed to release bile from the GB and so stopping fat could increase the chances of bile stasis right?
Totally confused, does anybody have any ideas for me … to clarify all this, please. And our understanding of nutrition, health, well-being — also, as never before. Saturated fat and protein — the backbone of animal-based foods — have barely budged since Polyunsaturated fats have increased by a factor of three. The modern fat-rich American diet is based mainly on salty, starchy, greasy snacks made with refined starches grains and potatoes and PUFA-rich vegetable oils like soy. What world are you living in? Until it is common knowledge that food can heal we are somewhat doomed. Room for improvement?
Hi Abel, I bought the audio version of the wild diet book. You mentioned a way to bet the recipes since I do not have the actual book. How would I get these? Thanks Ann. Hi Ann, please send an email to customercare fatburningman. First a bit about me, I was once pounds then I lost , then I gained about 30 back so that is my starting point around I lost it before by cutting carbs but I want to feel better doing it. That is why I am intrigued by the Wild Diet, couple of things though.
I am wondering how cost prohibitive the food shopping is going to be. To be honest the idea of getting grass fed and organic foods seems pricey to me. Also another honest moment here. I love the cheat sheet in PDF format but once purchased is it acceptable to just skim the book for highlights. Or any parts I really need to dig in on? Hey Kevin, thanks for sharing your background! I am just hearing about this eating plan after several years of eating a gluten free diet. I have some questions about the meat sources though. In fact is rarely has any!
Thanks in advance! Your form for the free gift will not accept my email address, saying that I need to enter a real one? Can you help me out? Are you on mobile or desktop? Please email customercare fatburningman. Any words of encouragement would be great!! I will submit my before and after pics once I reach my goal. Thank you for all you do to help others! I have slowly been gaining weight over the past couple of years. Gaining over 60 pounds total in just two years. For months now I have been trying everything I can to lose weight.
I ran and worked out and ate way less and ate low fat and diet drinks. The weight just kept coming on, I was so frustrated. I bought Abels book, did more research on my own as well and decided to start living and eating like I was born to do. Fatty Coffee, grass fed butter and steaks, fermented foods and bone marrow and even chocolate! In the first week I lost 10 pounds and felt amazing. I am currently in my second week and have lost 16 total now and have never had more energy. Thanks Abels. Hi Abel, I just got through reading your book and I have just a few clarifications.
My husband is thinking about fasting most days and then feasting at night. Is it okay to do that most of the time, or should he just do it a few days a week? For me, I have just bought protein and a green boost supplement. The protein shake has 5 total carbs 4 sugar and the greens has 8g of carbs 1g sugar.
I mix it with about 2ounces of cashew milk and the rest water and a handful of strawberries. Is that too much sugar or too many carbs? I am just trying to lean down. LOL We are now doing Hammer and Chisel, so the workouts are really geared toward weights and full body movements like you mentioned in your book.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Love the progress your client is making on the show! Hi Michelle, great questions. I fast through the mornings most days — that can work fairly well for men not always for women. Thank you! I purchased your 30 Day Fat Loss System and love all of the great information. I am slowly easing my whole family onto this diet. Hi Abel question…. Can u have some bread but very low amounts?
I need some breads in my diet. What do I do. I hate to break it to everyone but this method really is not new. Many people thought the Atkins diet was an excuse to eat as much meat and cheese as you want but if you read his book and followed it faithfully, it would be about he same as this Wild Diet. This process of burning fat by eating fat is also known as kertosis. This diet works better for men than it does for women. For women it will work amazingly well for a very short period of time then stop working.
It was only recommended for people who have a really hard time loosing weight. I tried it once, it really worked. Let me just correct myself. This diet sounds an awful lot like the Atkins diet when the Atkins diet is followed correctly. Are there any kind of natural foods that can take the place of my bread intake? Also I think I focus too much on the meat and fruits and leave out too many veggies. Any help is appreciated.
I started the wild diet almost 3 weeks ago- But I also do the fasting- not eating until or 2pm. The first week I lost 5lb — I weigh now- but tomorrow will be the end of the 3rd week and I still have not lost any weight- should I eat more? OMG this diet is awesome. I had my second child 4 months ago and I just stepped on the scale to discover I was almost pounds! The sad truth of my sugar addiction and sedentary life style really hit home and I am motivated to make a change. I am trying to convince my husband to go on this journey with me and hopefully I can break his Taco Bell habit and gain a support system because the hardest part of a diet is doing it alone with temptations all around.
Is this diet plan okay for someone who is at their correct weight but wants to add more fat to their diet? I lost lots of weight years ago doing Atkins and switched to Weight Watchers style of eating. I do miss the fat. Great job, Kurt and Abel. As I understand it you eat fruit 1 or possibly 2 times a day and really no starchy carbs. I am trying to lose 19 pounds that I have gained gained why eating right and exercising a lot in the last year. Can you eat in between meals?
I started today and had a egg plus whites omelet with a sausage link, peppers and onions and half a grapefruit. But by a. I was hungry. Can you eat in between meals and have this plan work? If so, what do you recommend eating in between meals? Also, I will eat dinner and then two hours later go to a boot camp exercise class, do you typically tell clients to eat after exercising even if they have been eating throughout the day?
I really enjoyed the show and I learned a LOT! Do you find varied success with men and women? My doctor wants me to only eat hormone-free red meat only once or twice a month at most. Is this still do-able or would you recommend I look elsewhere? Can you please send me an email and tell me whats in it. Since I am allergic to beef and all beef products like butter, does the diet work with vegan butter and cheese Steak?
Today I watched the whole series. Wow, I loved it. I believe the years of unsuccessful dieting has made me fat and depressed. Your plan is going to work for me because of the solid nature of it. Abel, I tried cutting carbs before and found that it greatly affected my mood. Then I read on the internet that women over 40 need a certain amount of carbs or the hormones can get out of whack. Can you recommend a way to do this without my mood going south? Aloha, I love everything I am reading but wondering how this works with individuals with autoimmune disease and endocrine issues.
I am following an autoimmune protocal which allows no grains, dairy, legumes, nuts, seeds, sugar,nightshades. I eat about 65 to 75 percent veggies, 20 percent protein, some fruit and tablespoons of olive oil.
I exercise a minimum of 14 hours a week. I have lost five pounds in a month. I would love some tips. I have an autoimmune disease and have followed a low carb diet for about 18 months and lost of my lbs. I just found that my body did better not eating gluten, any starches or sugar and junk foods. I never counted calories.
I feel now I am ready to step it up a notch and will try this diet to lose another lbs. What I love about this diet it is not as restrictive as some keto and paleo diets that limit your vegetables making foods like cauliflower, brussels sprouts and peppers, etc. Never happened to me. And by the way I am severely disabled but still lost the weight just doing some strength training 4 days a week. Here is a funny thing I noticed about going higher fat. We were all so programmed to think low fat and high carb for so long that there is a fear of fat even if we intellectually understand it.
Is it possible to be a gluten free, vegetarian or vegan on this diet? I have celiacs disease and I have been a vegetarian for over ten years. Is it possible to apply them to my dietary restrictions? Good question. Abel, me and the wife recently watched my diet is better than your diet. That got us motivated to get health, and to get in shape. Which has made us happier. I honestly feel like we have made a lifestyle change and intend to to stay on this track. May God bless you. Fantastic, Casey! My first week on the Wild Diet and I actually put on 2 lbs.
Now I have been low carbing for 2 years and am sugar and gluten free in my diet. I eat lots of veggies mostly greens and a little fruit. In those two years I lost over lbs. I am doing the fatty coffee in the morning and doing intermittent fasting, only eat in a hour time period. Maybe my body is adjusting. It is a little scary. I enjoyed watching the show and reading through your website. I want to try the beef bone broth pre-made. Is there a company or brand you can recommend? Very Interesting! I started back in April of last year after my bloodwork came back with an A1C of 9.
I had been on the typical diabetes medicines , refusing statins because of previous research. Vinnie Tortorich, Dr. David Perlmutter heard him on your podcast also and now you, are my inspiration and have probably saved my life. I love your approach to dieting as a lifestyle. I made the jump from Paleo to the Wild Diet. I love it!! Two questions though. Will the Wild Diet help help keep my depression at bay?
I started your 30 fat loss system.
Any other tips or tricks you can offer? Thanks in advance,. I would leave my 6 year old son behind. I pray this helps me like it has helped all the others. Thank you for sharing all this info with everyone. I just ordered your book, and I am so excited to try new ideas and ways to feed my family. Like how can you feed a family of 9 on the wild diet without going broke? Also I want to find a healthier way for my kids.
I have one son that has some major health issues and two teenager daughters that feel they are fat even though they are skinny. Please can you help me out with this.
Visit her blog at nourishingtraditions. I have also seen beans used in cake and brownie recipes. Axe on Twitter 13 Dr. Check Price. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 to 40 minutes until veggies are tender. The fertility diet has an impact on the entire body including digestion, hormonal balance, egg health, menstrual health, and immune system balance.
My breakfast is usually mixed roasted nuts, a few cranberries, ground flax seeds, plus the oats. It usually satifies me until past lunchtime. I read The Wild Diet book over the weekend and started on Sunday. Only 4 days in and already feeling great! I use to be really active before all these ailments started slowly progressing my activity regressed right with it.
It sucks to know that something that easy works, but is so expensive to do. Hey Melissa Crump! Just wanted to let you know that my family is beginning to follow the Wild Diet and we, too, are on food stamps with a tight budget. We bought the book and it has lots of yummy recipes. What we do to save money on the Wild Diet; 1. Only buy the food we need to reduce waste of food and money menu planning, grocery list, utilize leftovers, etc.
Eat the cheaper foods chicken vs beef, or at least expensive cuts of beef and buy only the dirty dozen as organic unless there is a sale 3. Shop sales and best prices Aldi has organic foods including dry goods, canned items, produce, and even Grass Fed ground beef! I then just fell off the band wagon and had a few of dark chocolate acai berries…so good but felt so bad. Anyhow I got back on track and I am going to get back on the horse. I have felt great being on this new journey!
I do fast and feast; and I am still stunned that I can lose weight. Thank you Abel and all you have to assist us in this way of life food journey! I am curious—how is The Wild Diet different from Atkins? It is no supersize that a keto-diet will promote very quick weight loss, but what about the long term cardiovascular effects of having a cholesterol-dense diet? Abel, This is Casey once again. I have been on this journey for 18 weeks and have finally reached my goal wait.
In New journey of toning up begins. Thank you for your help and easy to follow instructions and tasty meals. In the last month or so I took the cooking into my own hands kinda like you just pasted the torch on to me anyway thanks again. By the way the wife is still coming great. Just in case you was wondering my starting weight was pounds my weight to say is pounds. Thanks for believing in the process. Is this a bad idea on the wild diet? Breakfast is 4 eggs, lunches are chicken salad, dinner is salmon and fermented veggies, dinner is protein and tons of veggies. All meals have about 6 oz protein.
Hi Pete, meal timing is a personal choice and eating often can work for some. For me, I much prefer eating fewer meals and practicing intermittent fasting most days — it provides more freedom from cooking, cleaning, and constantly eating. Experiment, listen to your body, and enjoy the process! I just ordered the book on Amazon before finding this great deal. Wish I cold cancel, but it has already shipped. I am 56 grandmother of I have been grain free, gluten free, sugar free, etc. My numbers are all over the place, my stomach is a mess and I am very frustrated.
I am diligent about eating fresh foods and do not even have packaged foods in our home. I sure hope this helps and can break this cycle. My recipient is doing amazing at 63 and is very healthy by the way. Praise God!!! Thank you for the hope of sharing the successes of others. Abel you see this report on cooked rice with coconut oil? Love The Wild Diet! Doctors killed my thyroid last October and now I am on meds for rest of life and slowly gaining weight, so afraid I will get fat again, will this diet work for someone dealing with hypothyroidism from having no thyroid?
