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.

Essential reading for current and future health nuts

I've been reviewing my life, and all the influences I've seen over my 43 years. I grew up quite active but always struggled being a bit porky, even when training every day. I was lied to that Low Fat was the way to live. I wasn't told by anyone how critical protein was as well, and we all thought sugar was safer than fat. Wow. This book is a no nonsense truth bomb, that is easy to follow and understand, and based on science! Oh, and it also covers your pet. That's kinda cool to me. Now I just need to work on my psychology of addiction, gain discipline and control to be consistent, then I'll be the one skiing down the mountain at 110. That's my goal. Thanks Abel. I heard of you via Dave Asprey, who is the other guy for me to thank.
