Great news – in the past few weeks, Fat-Burning Man has hit #1 in Health in more than a half dozen countries and won 3 awards for best podcast with nearly half a million downloads every month. Having a platform like this important, as we recently learned, because so often the truth about health is controlled by gatekeepers.

For example, Dr. Terry Wahl’s TED talk gained over 1.5 million views making it one of the most popular episodes, was recently flagged by TED as being all of a sudden “outside of TED’s curatorial guidelines. Viewer Discretion Advised.” with a huge red warning emblazoned over the front of the video (see below).

      I have MS, dx October 2002, worked till Sept 2014 now on disability high stress job took its toll. I hate not working, but with horrible fatigue, pain and cognitive issues all gets worse, that decline is steady and seems worse everyday. I am on med now that causes brain infections. It’s scary, I just want to stop the meds. I take that daily pill now, but don’t want to. I have done the injections. Still new lesions appear. I can’t wait get your book Terry, I will order it when I get my disability check is about 50% less than when I worked. On top of MS, I now have dx with Fibromyalgia, neuropathy and cognitive issues, eye issues(nerve damage) vitamin D always low. I guess I still just don’t want to accept it, but as you are shut inside all the time. I was working out 5 days a wk. But here summer heat and again confined to home. It’s hard to cope at times. The pain is bad I just shake the bed, I can’t remember most things recent. 😒. Should I just eat veggies, dairy, grains. Is Fish, seafood, other meats ok or none of this.

        hanks, Kim

  2. Hi Abel,
    Great interview with Terry. I thought that her point about providing specific food guidelines is important. I agree that it’s really easy to eat “paleo” and not get all of the nutrients that are needed for health.
    I recently discovered your podcast and have been catching up on past episodes. Really enjoying them! The sound quality and production value are excellent.

    • Kim Susan Heflin says:

      Love your show Abel, I am so happy you have Terry on, I heave MS, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy in my feet and legs along with all these other issues/symptoms these call. Great info. Thanks so so much, you and Terry are a God send

  3. Hello!

    Thank you for this interview! I think Terry’s different “stages” of diet is very important. I remembered I transitioned slowly into a very strict diet, maybe over a couple of month or more, and it gives the body time to adjust. I have a friend (also with MS, as me) who started the AIP format from the get go and she is loosing too much weight, so much it is not healthy. We’ve been brainstorming, trying to think of foods that can get her weight back up without adding any grains. I suggested bananas, dried fruits, raisins and nuts mixed with coconut oil. Sweet potatoes is not a common food here and my friend thought her walking got a little worse after adding white potatoes to her diet so she’d rather not.

    Anyway, thanks again!

  4. As I listen to the various speakers you present I am beginning to see that there is no one paleo diet that fits everyone. Paleo diet takes various forms depending on one’s specific body and health needs.It appears that the paleo diet is a basic place to start. I am learning a lot.

  5. Thanks so much for putting the truth out there, Abel. This was an absolutely incredible interview and thanks for posting Dr Wahl’s presentation from TEDx. I’m still trying to get over how far western society has come from a genuinely healthy diet, especially the whole eat-less-fat-and-more-grains advice from big brother that started in the seventies. I also appreciate how you shun commercial sponsorship; as you say that would cloud your message and open the door influences that could potentially color the information.
    Keep up the great work, brother.

  6. I want to encourage everybody to use the Walhls protocol. Last year I had a big very hard cyst in my breast since August, my family and friends were so worry and begged me to visit the doctor but I didn’t want to know because my sister had died from breast cancer and it was a terrible 3 year painful experience. I asked the universe to show me a natural cure for whatever was happening in my body and one day I just opened the internet and I found the Dr, Walsh Ted talk, I was fascinated and I started to eat exactly the way she suggested and in two weeks the cyst has disappeared. Then I went back to eat the way I was doing it before and guess what? Mistake, mistake, I have a terrible pain ion my right arm that looks like is a pinched nerve and again I don’t want to visit any doctor, I am ready to start to eat the wonderful 9 cups of nutrition again and I just preordered The Wahls Protocol. Thank you Dr. Terry.

  7. The Dr Wahls protocol has taught me so much. I’m also studying the blood type diet information because lectins in certain produce seem to be the key to digestive, inflammation and immunity issues, sugar grains and dairy just the tip of the iceburg. Does anyone know if Dr wahls has studied this and what her take on it is; she dosent seem to consider it. Corn, soy, potatoes for sure, but for type O cabbage!
