Today’s Paleo success story comes from a man by the name of Andy Fisher who ran across the Fat Burning Man Show last year, embraced the lifestyle, and hasn’t looked back. Congrats Andy!
Abel’s on point message, jazz fluid style and approachable take on the paleo diet was the lifeline I was looking for and I grabbed on with both hands… I feel like I am back in control of my journey. – Andy Fisher
I first came across Abel James’ work when I stumbled across his excellent ‘Fat Burning Man’ podcast back in March. At that time I was a hefty 96kg at 5’8″ – a knee surgery, job promotion, new baby and a lack of self discipline had stamped its mark on my waistline and I was scrambling about for a way out of middle aged mediocrity! Abel’s on point message, jazz fluid style and approachable take on the paleo diet was the lifeline I was looking for and I grabbed on with both hands.
Now, three months on I have dropped down to 86kg and the weight is still falling away and yet I’ve never eaten so well! The exercise protocols Abel outlines have allowed me to rehabilitate my knee and build enough lean mass that I can now jig my healthy 5 month old (who is already stretching the toes of 6-9 month sleepsuits!) for hours on end without needing medical relief and, perhaps most important of all, I feel like I am back in control of my journey.
Abel’s primer on the Paleo approach is detailed enough to offer an insight into the robust science and common sense that underpins the lifestyle approach, while remaining this side of the nerdian line. There is a reason that Abel has enjoyed a meteoric rise and is now being recognised as a significant voice in the international health and fitness movement – the man walks his talk, talks sense, and has a sense of humor to boot! What’s not to like?
My recommendation, for what it’s worth, is to pawn whatever it takes to invest in Abel’s portfolio of educational products – don’t worry, the family jewels will be safe because he seems to be one of those guys for whom getting the message out to as many people as possible is more important than personal financial independence! Just look at the man – the ‘Ready, Willing and Abel TV Show’ is surely just a savvy producer away but until then, read, digest, ingest and test the approach for yourself – I suspect you’ll be delighted by the results!
Wow! Thanks so much for sharing with us Andy – and I LOVE the sound of a TV show (and terrible puns). Keep up the outstanding progress, my friend.
