New Primal Blueprint Podcasts


Episode 107: Abel James: Host Elle Russ hangs out with the Fat-Burning Man himself, Abel James, to discuss his recent appearance on ABC’s “My Diet is Better Than Yours” as a fat-loss coach helping a severely overweight man lose tons of body fat on a Primal-type “Wild Diet.”  Since his guy lost the most body fat (from 52% body fat to 30% body fat) but not the most body weight, Abel came in 2nd, but his client was the clear winner. It’s a fantastic story of ancestral health principles shining on center stage.
