Misinformation and unreliable

by NENMRunner on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

He interviews people who don’t have credible knowledge and experience in many of the topics. This causes rampant misinformation in the podcasts due to the lack of knowledge and the hosts inability to find reliable sources of information.

Lots of eye opening information, great guests and family friendly! Love that Abel doesn’t have on a bunch of meat heads dropping f-bombs. Also, love the fact he doesn’t bow to corporate sponsors. Everyday is something different, never gets old. Abel is a genuine, down to earth dude you just want to hang out with. Keep up the great work!

Thank you

Hello Abel, my name is Pablito I’m from Argentina living in Florida. I discovered your podcast by luck and I feel grateful for it. I was having food hate because there are so many conflicting poo ya of view that really made me hate food, I was always tired and I’m still over weight but I lost 14lbs by starting to intermittent fast and going back to basics. Thanks for the guidance through the podcast and looking forward to your book that should be home soon :) May you be happy and joyful

Thanks for a non gimmick-y podcast.

Opens the dialogue for conversation and new perspectives

by LaurenCreech16 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I love this podcast so much. My favorite way to start my day and drive to work. I really appreciate how Abel brings in a variety of guests with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. He is strong in his stance about overall health, yet is always open to hear different viewpoints, learn, and gain new insights. I love the transparency and how this podcast opens the dialogue for different perspectives that needs to happen in the health space. With so many people/things taking the “my way or the highway” approach (and putting other people down) in the health space, this podcast is a true breath of fresh air. Keep up the mission of the podcast, Abel- it is a true inspiration to me!

I liked your episode with Gary Collins. It helped push me to do a health detox (phone, spending, sugar). You have a fun vibe on your interviews. I also think your improv at the end was great. You have a great voice. Will add you to my podcast lineup so I don’t miss out when I am back online.

Fantastic! A must listen to podcast.

by Akshay Nanavati on
Rating: ★★★★★

Abel is a fantastic interviewer and is one of the few hosts that really takes the time and effort to study his guests and their work before he interviews them. This makes a clear difference in the quality of each interview. He really knows how to pull out insightful information from his guests to make a positive impact in the lives of his listeners. I was honored to be a guest on the show and immediately felt a deep connection to Abel. This is an incredible show with invaluable information hosted by an amazing human being. Highly recommend you check this out.

Too many sponsor adds

by SDgoodvibes on
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

I really like the show content, his voice & guests. I can no longer deal with 7 minutes of intro and adds ... I have limited time and it’s frustrating when you just want the show to start. Sorry & just constructive feedback - hope to come back someday!

More of the same

by Matt Gaidica on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

A lot of great people are pulled in, but it’s the same interview you’ve probably heard somewhere else. I had to draw the line on a recent Q&A where Abel spent the first half pitching a product, then gave some anecdotes about kettle bells and protein, and finally criticized carnivore diets in zero-evidence fashion. There’s a significant debate right now between plant and meat camps, and it deserves more than opinion, especially considering that both sides have incredible success stories. Unfortunately, because the host is ‘just a guy’, the content needs to go above and beyond, and I’m not sure it does.

This sceptic has been won over

by Jacob Floren on
Rating: ★★★★★

Okay, I found this podcast somehow randomly & started listening... & then I kept listening... & listening... & then I was like okay... let me really put this to the test... this “Wild Diet” thing... So, I bought your book as well. Suffice it to say I’ve been won over. I will follow up with a more detailed story on your Facebook page (assuming I can find it) & I’ll be sure to drop a review of the book on Amazon. Keep up the good work. 👍🏼

Great show, but far too many adds.

by Magbfa on
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I have been a big fan of the show for a very long time and a frequent listener. I have his book and have followed his content.This podcast is full of excellent information, but I use the term for lightly. Overtime the podcast has transitioned into 80% content 20% as. This episode I just recently listen to didn’t start until 12 minutes into the podcast. 12 straight minutes of able advertising his products. I completely understand the need to advertise to keep a podcast running, but 12 minutes in the beginning and more than five minutes in the end is too much in my opinion. I will keep listening for now, but if the ads increase I will find a different source for my information.If you do listen, use the rule of thumb and fast forward through the first seven minutes.

Abel, I have always lived a pretty healthy lifestyle. Thank you for your podcast and getting the truth out there on “good fats” and great living.

This podcast is amazing. The different guests you have shed light onto many aspects of life that aren’t always shown. I was hit by a car 9 years ago and have suffered massive brain loss and had been diagnosed with epilepsy. Your show keeps my mind working while I am at work and I am always making notes from the information provided by your show.

Rating: ★★★★★

Long review :) I just started listening to your podcast and have now finished the one with Chaz and Alyson. Both great discussions and information. I am addicted to podcasts and having been a trainer and instructor for 25 years, I listen to several health and wellness podcasters. I really like the ‘feel’ of this one. Educational, real, yet fun too. I look forward to more!I especially enjoyed listening to your wife’s chat with you. I am now in my mid-50s (with four kids in their 20s) and have held Alyson’s current fitness lifestyle since I was in my mid-30s. After playing sports all my life and working out intensely everyday like Alyson talked about, I got into doing shorter, effective and intense workouts (HIIT style) and then mix that with yoga, tai chi, general flexibility and core routines. As a result, I truly believe I’ve prevented injury to my body as I’ve aged. I am grateful to continue to teaching indoor cycle, instruct yoga and crossfit, and am so thankful to still be able to enjoy climbing, hiking, biking and kayaking with my husband. I also practice modified Keto (a little more protein since I workout every day). I also love intermittent fasting and do this three days a week for hormone balance and much more. This has taken away all of my menopausal symptoms after a radical hysterectomy two years ago. Anyway, keep up the great work. You’re definitely on the right track! :) Thanks for sharing.

So excited to have found this show! I’m not only impressed with the physical results but the mental results from the tips in this podcast. My job has been very stressful, and I’ve realized how important my diet and exercise is when it comes to focus. Lastly, my favorite part is that the cravings are gone!! I look forward to eating veggies and REAL food. Please give this a listen it’s will surprise you, I promise.

I recently discovered this show and have already listened to every episode I can get my hands on! I love the wild diet approach and it has added so much value to my life.

Any wild diet recommendations??

Nice show but

by dubious noiz on

Love the show but I don’t get a chance to listen often because the video aspect requires podcast app to be open and using the screen. So my phone is effectively disabled (pun not intended) when enjoying the show. Wish there was an audio only version.

83 lbs Down Since January 2018

by ScottEdwards29 on
Rating: ★★★★★

I was 530 lbs on January 7, 2018 and had decided enough is enough. I’m 6’4 and 36 years old and felt 80 most mornings. I have 3 young children and I want to be around for them. I started eating this way out of luck because I just found stumbled onto this pod cast a week ago. In January I cut all grains and sugars from my diet and started what I thought was a low carb high fat diet. I then tweaked it to a low carb moderate fat moderate protein diet in February and after hearing Abel on this pod cast realized I was following his plan, AND IT WORKS!!! Just weighed in today at 447 lbs 83 pounds lighter in roughly 4 months. I have never felt better. After listening to two years worth of the show I have started to incorporate vitamin c and fermented veggies to my diet. I think this show is great!! And have been sharing it with my friends and family. Thank you Abel for all the information you have opened my mind up to. It really is amazing.

I love listening to Abel James but have been caught up for awhile and miss the podcast! He is an honest and entertaining guy who has got the right idea about a healthy and livable lifestyle. Anyone while listens will love this podcast!

Little info

by KFM1959 on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

A lot of talking with little useful information - juggling, off road unicycle, etc. No detailed specifics in the first half of the podcast. “Give up sugar for 30 days” - there - now no need to listen for an hour. Too much of a time waste to listen to the second half. BTW - listening to a juggler on a podcast is like getting excited by a naked babe on a podcast.

I work in the medical field and see how western medicine has digressed, it’s frustrating how I work in the medical field and when I had medical ailments, it wasn’t until I went to a Homeopathist that I started finding out what was causing my issues. Every specialist I went to just wanted me to get on the next “new and improved pill”. I want to fix my problem, not cover it up. Listening to this podcast has also helped me progress in my physical health healing process. I love it and it makes sense.

Abel's book and podcast has changed my life. The information he brings is second to none by himself, let alone the wealth of knowledge from all his guests. I now listen to about 12 different podcasts weekly just from guests on his show. Always entertaining and well worth the time.

Motivating and Inspiring

by Raqamama on
Rating: ★★★★★

I really appreciate this podcasts relaxed tone and attitude that is also motivating and inspiring! There is no one-stop shopping when it comes to health. Thank you for preaching this message and allowing me to finally stop feeling bad about myself when I feeling like I need to eat a potato or muffin here and there. I was getting into the mindset that eating had to be all or nothing. Of course, that left me feeling deprived, hungry and depressed. Hearing the continued message from the varitey of experts that finding balance is the key to success, has brought me to be more successful on my journey to health. I love that each show is unique but continues with the same underlying message...Love yourself, keep moving, and Eat in a way that honors your body, mind and spirit. You guys rock!!

I've been listing to this podcast for several months and I love sharing the information I hear with my husband and family, they all want to know how I became so knowledgeable about health and wellness and I always tell them The fat burning man podcast!

Abel asks the best questions and never interrupts his guests. I've learned so, so, SO much from this show! "Subscribe," but also go back and download all of the older episodes that spark your interest. That's what I did and I currently have 35 episodes to listen to!

Life changer

by Elisonoc on
Rating: ★★★★★

I first started to listen to Abel's podcast back in August of 2016 and I was 5'5", 199lbs. After listening to just a couple of episodes I bought the Wild Diet audio and paperback book. After implementing the principles I learned in the podcasts and the the book I lost 29lbs in the first 4months! I didn't follow the 30day fat loss plan I just change my way of eating. My wife had always been on the crunchy-organic side of life but she also listened to the book and started gearing our meals towards the wild side. She has always been thin and in-shape looking but still managed to drop below her high-school weight even with our two boys demanding her time. Exercise was minimal as I work about 60hrs a week and she manages a business and our kids all on her own. Our success was 100% due to living Wild. However, my weight loss has stalled. I haven't regressed which showed that the weight loss was real and done healthily. The holidays set us back as we traveled a lot and ate what was put in front of us. I have noticed a big change in my stress and energy level since coming off the Wild Diet. It's amazing how much our food affects our daily lives. BUT, we are getting back on track and taking charge of our lives once more. Living Wild is the only way to be and I'm glad that we can continue this journey while our kids are still very young and impressionable. We know now that there is no alternative for a happy healthy life, not when we have experienced it WILD!

This podcast has truly changed my life and this review is long overdue! I began listening to this podcast the begninning of 2016, I think I have listened to every episode and a few a couple times through. I have learned so much from the guests and began my Paleo journey while listening to Abel James. I truly believe the knowledge I have gained from this podcast has helped me cure myself of amenoria and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, not to mention feel amazing, look great, become stronger, leaner, healthier, and happier. There's something for everyone in this. Highly recommended if you want to 'burn fat' lose weight, get healthier and learn more about nutritional science. Abel does a great job with keeping the podcast entertianing, never boring, and there aren't all those adds you hear in other podcasts. Thanks Abel!
