    Abel, I’m doing paleo/low carb but I’m getting the idea that I need to eat five to six meals a day to gain muscle and lose fat to have a shredded six pack. Can you tell me what you did to be and look the way you do please! I listen to your podcast along with Jimmy so send me your answer. I workout and right now am doing chalean extrem but some how I’m missing something that I feel I haven’t reach my goal yet.
    Thank you Abel

      Everyone’s methods will be different when it comes to achieving the body they feel most comfortable with. Keep tweaking your diet intake and your fitness routine if necessary. But remember that sustainable changes are made slowly, NOT drastically. – Emily, FBM Team

  • Ward says:

    So Perlmutter’s whole theory is based on a case study by the mayo clinic of 13 people that hinted at an association. Just 13 people? Not very solid science. Solid salesmanship though. http://grist.org

    • Emily Dewey says:

      He may site other studies in his book, I’m not sure though. Might be worth reading if you’re interested in where he gets his “sales pitches” though ;) – Emily, FBM Team

    Hi Abel,
    I am currently working my way through Brain Grain and enjoyed this interview as a supplement. Anyone doubting the science has only to turn to the extensive list of references/citations in Grain Brain as a starting point for independent research. Just emailed the interview link out to friends and family. Hoping they will take the time to hear the message.
    Dr. Perlmutter has also provided helpful information on helping kids with focus issues through dietary means. Yeah!
    Abel, thank you for putting the information out there for all.
    PS- Great interview with J Bailor. Nice to hear a less scripted (not just Calorie Myth talking points) interview with him. Looking forward to your collaboration.
