Success Stories and Reader Feedback
A wacky approach to nutrition like The Wild Diet (where you get to enjoy chocolate, grass-fed steak, cheesecake, and other delicious fat-burning foods) may sound great, but you’re probably asking yourself – Does The Wild Diet really work?
Have real people dropped fat, improved their health, and increased their athletic performance? Or is The Wild Diet just something already-fit people do to get even more ripped?
Recently, a lot of you have been writing in to share your stories. Here are a few of my favorites.
These folks have lost weight, reduced body fat, and even improved their breathing by transforming their bodies with delicious real food.
The following success stories are from regular people who want to help get the word out – real food works… and there’s no looking back!
“It’s the first time in my journey that I have started to consume fat and the weight is still coming off, yet I’m building muscle which is very impressive!”
You have to eat fat to burn fat. Nice work, Maral!
Here’s an inspiring story from Mandy who dropped over 100 pounds…
“I was a slave to the low fat diet, high carb and highly processed diets. For 5 years. I lost and gained the same 20-30lbs over and over… And over. I would eat weight watcher meals, low fat yogurt, pasta, use things like Splenda, drink diet soda, and hate the blandness of so much of the food I was eating. And I ate fruit as a sugar fix. It took about 4-6 months once I switched to start seeing the scale move, but I knew I was on to something because I felt so much better and began to not need naps, decreased migraines and just feeling good more days than bad. I just stuck with it, I knew eventually once things were fixed on the inside that I would see it on the outside. Once I got moving on the scale, it’s been a steady decrease in weight. I still have about 20lbs or so to lose but I’m not in a rush.” – Mandy
So glad you’ve had such great success with this way of eating, Mandy!
David Coombs, a member of the Fat-Burning Tribe, recently shared this picture with us:
Great job planning out your holiday meals and treats ahead of time. You’re crushing it, David.
Check out these before and after pictures of a listener named Johnny Franck. Like me, Johnny is a musician—I know how that lifestyle can help pack on the pounds. But after just four months into eating Wild, Johnny was ripped.
I just wanted to say that I did not look like that before I found your podcast. My story is very similar to yours (including being a touring musician). I’m the chubby guy with the dreads in this video.
Around this time I had just quit smoking and put on around 20-25 pounds because I was eating more than ever. I hated the fact that I was gaining weight and didn’t know what to do. I tried all kinds of stupid extreme diets that didn’t work.
I didn’t really know what to do so I decided to work out for 15 minutes 4 times a week – mostly just push ups and pull ups – and I saw some results which was good and motivating but I plateaued for about a year. I had gotten the hang of being disciplined with working out but I knew to keep the momentum going I had to change how I ate.
Honestly, right around that time I found your podcast and thought I would give a couple episodes a listen. I was amazed at how many things I believed were true about nutrition were so dead wrong. I’m so thankful for the wealth of truthful information you have on your show. I have learned so much and have been eating Wild for about 4 months (though I still drink beer :)) It’s crazy how quickly my abs started coming in when I started real and natural foods and awesome how much clean muscle mass I was able to put on.

You guys look so healthy and vibrant, and taking the plunge on The Wild Diet together gives you some serious mojo! Congrats!
Every so often I get a message that gets me all choked up. A while back I got an email from a listener named Denny Hemingson thanking me for helping him restore his health and drop 46 pounds eating The Wild Diet packed with delicious foods like bacon and eggs, butter, coffee, and even Alyson’s coffee cake!
That message kicked off a series of adventures with Denny, the guitarist and bandleader of the Tim McGraw Band. You can listen to a recent episode of the Fat-Burning Man show and learn how Denny lost 46 pounds while on tour with Tim McGraw, quick tricks to eat clean on the road, how to get a high-intensity workout in a parking lot, how to reduce anxiety and stress with meditation, and much more. Plus, check out our new collaboration, an album of original music called Swamp Thing.
Here’s a recent before and after pictured shared by Jay Vilar, a member of the Fat-Burning Tribe…
Bam. Only one month in, and you’ve made huge progress. Nice job, Jay.
David Zachary recently wrote in to share his before and after picture with us…

It’s amazing how eating Wild doesn’t just change your physique, it changes how you feel!
— Michael (@thegodscake) June 24, 2015
Have you ever gone “on a diet” that makes you lose too much weight?
Most people struggle to lose any weight on a typical diet… but The Wild Diet is a lifestyle that’s full of delicious foods without the dogma. That’s why it works.
When you start feeling like you’re too thin and want to bulk up, just include some “safe starches” with your evening feast a few times a week—like boiled sweet potato. Add a Wild 7 Workout and weights a couple times a week and you’ll start to see your muscles build up pretty quick.

These days, a lot of people are eating Wild to heal their bodies and reclaim their health, not just drop fat. (Remember, put your health first and fat loss will follow!)
Sugar and gluten cause inflammation in the airways and the pancreas, which can contribute to asthma attacks. Getting rid of the sugar, grains, and gluten works.

Lyme can be a debilitating disease, causing severe fatigue, joint pain, flu-like symptoms and more. Lyme can lay you out and stop your life in its tracks (just listen to my recent interview with Tim Ferriss for proof).
Tony’s back to living a normal life, and to someone suffering from Lyme, living a normal, symptom-free life is a massive victory!
— Duncan Cowie (@CowieDunks) August 21, 2015
Was Duncan’s cough the result of due to inflammation in the airway caused by dietary issues like refined sugar, wheat, and processed food? Capitalizing on the anti-inflammatory effects of whole, fresh foods can be the difference between thriving and surviving.
Getting rid of a constant cough has to be a huge relief. Way to go, Duncan!
@fatburnman started listening to your show a few months back, lost thirty lbs since. The book is awesome. It's not a lifestyle, it's just me
