Me! Talking w/ Fat-Burning Man


Do you know the Fat-Burning Man? You probably should. Abel James is an author (Intro to Paleo), fat-loss coach (check out the LeanBody Program), musician (The Musical Brain: The Evolution of Music, Language, and the Brain), radio host (Fat-Burning Man Show), and a self-described health crusader. (I say SUPERHERO!)

Dig this:

A former strategic advisor to the food and beverage industry, Abel now acts as a consumer advocate who exposes the truth behind deceptive marketing practices, misleading corporate propaganda, and powerful special interests that have accelerated the worldwide obesity epidemic and health crisis.

A few weeks ago, Abel and I had a half hour chat about the fun of playing in the kitchen, thyroid adventures, my checkered past, and a recent major kitchen fail. Head on over to Fat-Burning Man to check out Abel’s badass content and to listen to our conversation.

Listen to my chat with Abel on the Fat-Burning Man Show.

    Your podcast was great! But more important… Your picture was super foxy! I love your blog, well fed, and can’t wait for well fed 2 to come out!

  • Kim M says:

    Just listened to the podcast. You are amazing and inspirational. I especially liked your approach towards sugar addiction by treating and nourishing your inner child. That just made so much sense to me. You inspired me to try the 21 day sugar detox (again), and see if I can make it past day three this time! Oh, and I bought your cookbook, can’t wait to see what’s in it!

    • Mel says:

      Thank you so much! I’m glad you liked what I had to say. Congrats on taking on the sugar detox. You CAN do it, and you’re going to feel so good when you break through the other side!
