Weight loss reality shows, like The Biggest Loser, have forever been the bane of my existence.
But then ABC asked me to be on one. And I said “yes.”
It’s been a weird ride.
The show is hosted by Shaun T of Insanity and shows real people from Atlanta putting diets – like vegan vs. paleo – into action in real life. In an interesting twist, the experts on the show (like me), can get eliminated.
Will you be stunned by how much fat you can burn with real food?
Will Abel debut on network TV dressed in a full-body bacon costume?
Will The Wild Diet dominate by taking a huge lead right out of the gate?
Could I be completely eliminated from the competition for being a buffoon?
There’s only one way to find out.
Tune in tonight (Thursday, January 7th) at 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central for the premiere of My Diet Is Better Than Yours on ABC.
In the meantime, watch below to see my ugly mug on People and Entertainment Tonight…

ABEL JAMES EXPLAINS THE WILD DIET ON PEOPLE
WHAT IS THE WILD DIET?
The Wild Diet focuses on whole foods: healthy fat-burning fats; organic vegetables; pasture-raised meats, poultry, and wild-caught fish; pasture-raised eggs and grass-fed dairy.
WHAT IS THE WILD DIET IN 30-SECONDS OR LESS…
In My Diet Is Better Than Yours, star experts and trainers will coach overweight Americans on how to lose weight on their unique diet and fitness plans. My Diet is Better Than Yours features celebrity trainers including Abel James (bestselling author of The Wild Diet), Dawn Jackson Blatner featuring the “Superfood Swap Diet Plan” (author of The Flexitarian Diet), Carolyn Barnes (creator of the cLean Momma Plan), Jovanka Ciares, and Jay Cardiello featuring the “No Diet Plan” (celebrity trainer to 50 Cent, Jennifer Lopez, and professional athletes).
Unlike NBC’s The Biggest Loser, contestants on ABC’s My Diet is Better Than Yours will be following their expert’s unique diets from their home. There’s no “weight loss camp” – it’s just real people working their day jobs, living with their families, and doing the best they can to lose weight.
Kurt Morgan will be following The Wild Diet with Abel James as his expert and coach. “I picked Abel James’ Wild Diet because it’s simple, fresh ingredients with a bit of fun,” says 46-year old Kurt Morgan who gained more than 100 pounds, topping out at 375 lbs after a head-on collision in 2006.
“I couldn’t move, and I just didn’t care what I ate. Then I got a staph infection and almost died,” he says in People Magazine.
“Unlike other diet shows, this is real life,” says Shaun T, creator of the home fitness sensation Insanity and host of the show. “They’re going to work, they’re coming home and they have to make their own food.” To measure each contestant’s weight loss and fitness progress, contestants will be evaluated in challenges created by celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser (whose clients include Kelly Ripa, Shakira, and Sarah Jessica Parker).
Another concept of My Diet is Better Than Yours that makes it unique is that contestants may eliminate their trainers if they don’t feel like the plan is working for them.
