  1. So many congrats on the success of the show, man. You deserve all of it. 1 million downloads DAMN lol. Can’t wait to read Mark’s new book too – I love it when we can move into the more complex stuff beyond diet and really hit the nuances that determine how happy & healthy we can actually make ourselves.

    • Hey Stefan, we are just running some of most popular shows from the last few years while Abel puts the finishing touches on the upcoming Wild Diet book. Don’t worry, we will be back soon with a full lineup of brand new guests.

  2. Great podcast guys!

    Love the comment about “can you tell my vegan friend”. I was a vegan for 13 years and when my life literally fell apart in 2012 I reached out to learn about paleo/keto eating. I had to discover this on my own and had a great doctor who told me to eat keto and started feeling confident, grounded and clear headed for the first time in my life.

    Good news is I’m 34 and have a chance to turn it around and feel like I’ve just begun. I’m slowing reclaiming my emotional and financial stability thanks to following this path and also doing some deep emotional healing work from repressed trauma previously that kicked this off.


    • Brian,

      Would you mind offering some more details about your vegan diet? I’d love to see a list of the foods you were eating. Not an exhaustive list, of course, but as much as you’re willing to share.


  3. Great Episode! Thank you Abel and Mark for sharing your knowledge. I am allergic to fish and wondering the best way to supplement for EPA and DHA? There are algae forms but I’ve never heard any feedback on their effectiveness.

  4. Glad you shared this episode again! I’ve always loved Mark’s work. I especially love his skill of getting the all-important points across but making the message accessible as well. He is real, but not so much that you feel you are being preached to.

  5. Hey guys, it’s been 3 months since the last show. Did I miss something? Have you guys stopped making these? If so that would be disappointing since they were so good and I only had just found them in September. I’ve gotten through the last few months listening to the older shows but I’m running out fast!
