    I lost 33kg and Ithink that Ineed to loose 10kgs more. But, what is much more important is that I listen my body and do fine tuning o fmy eating habits. I feel much more easy, eager to be active and creative. That i smuch more important than number of kgs lost.
    EVen, I think that planning of meals the next stage of good achievement. Some my friends say: your fridge is half empty! Are you poor?
    I said: No, I am purchasing only what I want to eat these days.
    I found this much more important than do I ook like any movie celebrity or Mr. Bodybuilder.

      Congratulations on losing so much weight! I think it’s pretty exciting to hear how people learn through experience that eating REAL food effects waaaay more than just your weight. It’s truly a huge paradigm shift.

      Your comment about “are you poor” is so funny. My mother is always worried I am starving too. I think people forget that food isn’t meant to last forever. Food goes bad and you have to shop for veggies a couple times a week.

    Abel, I appreciated this podcast very much. I changed my way of eating 17.5 years ago because I have lupus. The medical/pharmacological road ahead looked grim. I began with Protein Power, and I migrated to a more paleo lifestyle. I agree with Liz that some people seem to consider paleo almost a religion with rigid rules. I prefer to use basic paleo as a foundation, and I have modified it based on science and what works for me. At 60 I am one of the few people I know in my cohort on no meds. I am well and healthy. Thanks for your informative podcasts. Paula

    Dear Abel,

    I LOVE your show and really appreciate your work. However, you must SERIOUSLY start including the sources (academic or not) to the facts you mention and the claims you make every now and then. Otherwise, you will certainly lose credibility with academics like me and simply become another person throwing “facts” out there. Dr. Joel Fuhrman (who you interviewed) would be a good model to follow.

    Thanks again and keep up the great work, but don’t forget to always improve and become more credible, ok?

    I find a lot of todays podcasts around health & fitness are just information overload. Whether raw vegan or Paleo or any other
    cult ideology of nutrition. For the mass population the one thing that all people should focus on is a calorie deficit and the amount of calories rather than the type of calories, which should be secondary. It creates too much stress for people with busy lives and who are not ‘into health & fitness’ . Also different guests have polar opposite views which confuse the lay person and creates paralysis by analysis and they end up not taking action. Road to ripped podcast is more about simplicity than over complication -just my 2 cents.

    Liz lost me when she started talking about how “the Safeway” has nothing but transfats. I live in freaking Wyoming where farmers markets and fancy grocery stores aren’t happening. Safeway and (gasp) Walmart offer healthy choices–especially for single moms trying to eat paleo and live on a very tight budget. I just get very turned off by the precious tone she had. Give me a break.
