EP022a: You Can Change Your Life by Eating Real Food with Abel James

Pay attention in the grocery store because labeling can be deceiving.

You almost have to have a detective license these days to get “real” food at the grocery store. Labeling is intentionally misleading to consumers who believe “all-natural” actually means the product is truly all natural. The best place to get food that contains beneficial nutrients is the farmer’s market or the local butcher. Drew’s guest, The Fat Burning Man – Abel James, shares his Wild Diet, which he describes as somewhere in between the paleo and primal eating plans. Drew and Abel take us behind the scenes of their reality TV shows, where we learn how someone can wear a full-size bacon costume and still look at themselves in the mirror every morning.
