TIP #2: YOU CAN EAT BACON, BUTTER & STEAK WHILE DROPPING FAT
In the fourteenth incarnation, the Lord appeared as Nrisimha and bifurcated the strong body of the atheist Hiranyakasipu with His nails, just as a carpenter pierces cane. Hy ,today I am on the first day of GM diet plan and I have taken fresh fruit juice whithout sugar ,is there any problem??

TIP #1: 80% OF FAT LOSS COMES FROM DIET, NOT EXERCISE
I am down from lbs to lbs doing mostly Paleo, but modified with some safe starches per your book. Just so you know this is not just about weight loss for me, I was a type 2 diabetic with full metabolic syndrome and most importantly, I had popping capillaries in my retinas that were leading to blindness.
All is better now, no pills etc. I started with fruit and sweet potatoes and it was hard to stop eating them at first. But now that my diet is more balanced, I have it under control. I think there was an adjustment period. Paul has said the cravings are due to missing nutrients. I also do the Intermittent Fasting 16 hour fast with 1 Tbs coconut oil and an 8 hour feeding window and this has helped me too.
Sometimes I just have a spoonful of rice syrup to get some carbs. Or you could add it to a homemade salad dressing or drizzle it on some plain yogurt. I am a lurker of the worst sort, but here goes. As a 54 year old woman, I am more energetic, flexible yoga three times a week , and healthier than I have been for, oh, decades.
Talk about replacing a wardrobe! My worry, of course, is gaining it all back, which, sorry to say, is an experience I have had already in days of yore. I was an avowed low-carber back then and I can attest that, while it was effective for losing weight, it was not a good long term strategy. So far, as long as I stick to basic PHD principles, things are going swimmingly. In general, PHD has been a huge success.
Thank you Paul and Shou-Ching! What started it all was getting fed up with feeling awful all the time; I started optimizing my life around foods and exercises that would make me feel better and have energy, and the weight loss followed.
I just wanted to let you know that I was finally successful at adding back in some carbs. I am now able to eat half of a small sweet potato on a daily basis, while still losing weight! As a bonus, my eyes are no longer blurry, and my hair appears to have started growing back.
When I put it in a ponytail, there is a thick halo of new fuzz where formerly my scalp was visible. I am suprised at how quickly these issues began to resolve — it has been perhaps a month, if not less.
You have my deepest gratitude, and respect. I had been doing very low carb for many years and do now wonder if it actually made my symptoms much worse. I was diagnosed with BPD while doing very low carb. Following the PHD diet has greatly reduced my symptoms. I feel like a new person.
I feel so much better now: This diet is super healthy and does allow plenty of choices: No need to go hungry. When the fast is over, I eat normally: And I exercise during the fast — no problem with a lack of energy. No longer am I anxious about eating every 4 hours like I used to be while doing the low carb. It has really simplified my life. I think this was helped by eating more healthy fat and Omega 3.
So give PHD a try if you want to feel better and be healthy too. I highly recommend it — it really has worked for me. Thank you so much, Paul and Shou-Ching, for all you do! Lost a lot of weight, but staying on it was difficult. Last year I came off a bout of depression determined to beat it without drugs. I stopped eating sugar and surprise!
Since exercise is also helpful to depression, I thought that it would be better if I kept losing weight to reduce my chance of injury while exercising.
Along the way I found that many of the things that are recommended in the Perfect Health Diet greatly helped me in losing weight. I lost a total of seventy pounds. This is due in large part to the dietary recommendations in the Perfect Health Diet. What is even better is that the recommendations in the Perfect Health Diet led to removing the last things that were contributing to my depression. I believe now that grains and omega-6 in vegetable oil was making me depressed. To go back to the beginning, the Atkins diet had two flaws which undermined long-term weight loss:.
The Perfect Health Diet is written so that you can read to whatever depth of scientific detail you want to. I am about done with my third time through. My particular health issue is depression, and the Perfect Health Diet has many links to dietary causes of depression. The most helpful aspect is that it is written from the perspective that this way of eating is a PERMANENT change, and that this way of eating is based on sound science, including cultural and epidemiology studies, not just lab experiments.
The only qualification that I would add is that the book recommends eating a lot of fish rather than using supplements for omega This recommendation is based on the observation that most fish oil capsules are stored at room temperature and the oil may go rancid without you knowing it. Again, as a person who has lost seventy pounds and now enjoy a life free of depression. I wholeheartedly recommend the Perfect Health Diet. Following your PhD diet I have continued to lose weight at a rate of one half pound per day!
In 27 days I have miraculously lost Overall it has been consistent but on the days when I increase my probiotic intake it seems that the loss is considerably more rapid!! While there were some days in the beginning that were very rapid weight loss, I expected it to even out and slow down by now but in fact yesterday I was surprised to find i had lost 1. I must tell you, that being insulin resistant, I was a prime candidate to become a pre-diabetic patient.
Jon Weight loss hadrion I decided to give Perfect Health Diet a go first and see where that takes me. My skin is clearer and less red. What I would encourage any of you dealing with inflammation or who feel extremely bloated after a meal with wheat in it is to try to avoid gluten and see if your body feels different.
I had gone gluten free before but all I did was replace wheat bread with gluten free breads and I paid no attention to the oils used to make the products.
The Perfect Health style of eating with safe starches like potato, sweet potato and white rice makes following the diet easy and pleasurable.
We even made Perfect Health ice cream which uses rice syrup in place of sugar and it was delicious and totally satisfied any lingering sweet tooth. So far, following the plan set out in the PHD has led to some nice results. I bought the draft version in September My health has improved a lot. Picture of me in summer of and Just want to thank you guys for all that you do. After my thanksgiving binge I finally decided to get serious and add in about g of carb per your recommendation and my cravings for sweets had decreased a lot.
Being able to eat starch got rid of the feeling of deprivation and I no longer feel the need to eat dessert after every meal. Keep up the good works…. I also am taking the supplements Paul had recommended after I emailed him to ask what I can add to the one I was taking. One of the things I immediately noticed after doing PHD is that it improved the quality of my sleep used to keep waking up several times at night and that is now a thing of the past because I now sleep uninterrupted for hours ; and no more cramps in my calves that used to happen occasionally after a heavy work out ; no more menstrual cramps as well.
I usually get a big, really deep and hard to get rid of pimple just before or during my monthly period and my husband or a dermatologist would actually help me get it out especially if I had an important function to attend to. I was thinking that may be IF and the removal of wheat in my diet did greatly help me in seeing immediate improvement in my sleep. So yes at least in my experience, a great improvement in my over all health since I incorporated the principles that I learned from the PHD book.
And to top it all off, I lost 3 lbs in the last 4 weeks losing the 15 lb excess weight is not even on top of my list because I am trying to get pregnant. I simply want to eat healthy and trying to figure out what diet works best for me. And I found it! Thanks to the Jaminets! And yes, I am sticking with PHD for the rest of my life…. I just hope I keep losing the last few fat I wanted to shed off.
Btw, I only weigh myself once a week at the same day and time without fail and I also use a Digital Body Fat Caliper to measure my body fat. So yes, I am definitely losing some body fat and no muscle loss! My trainer was very impressed when she weighed me last week. I am definitely seeing positive results since I started the PHD! The elimination of wheat, sugar and cheese which I used to eat a lot everyday has done great wonders in my body.
Extremely gratifying to find a way of eating which is sustainable, totally satisfying and results in natural weight loss. And, I have yet to add high intensity workouts to my normal morning and afternoon walks.
I have been talking to anyone who has expressed interest as the potential of the diet is obviously tremendous!! I strongly suspect PHD played a pivotal part in my wife getting pregnant naturally, just prior to starting her next round of IVF.
As soon as I added back starches, my desire for alcohol diminished greatly. I was very strict Paleo for a good 8 months, and yes felt fantastic and lost 10ks etc.
But then started feeling tired, moody. Did I put on weight. Essentially now I eat what my body craves. I can listen to it now and it responds accordingly. It knows when it needs more carbs eg.
And it knows how much as well. My low-level depression and anxiety have completely disappeared and the diet is considerably more varied and easier to stick to than VLC. BG , improved my bowel function, and improved my mood. I also reduced my grocery bill which in turn made for a more harmonius family life because I instantly desired about one-third of the protein I used to eat.
Of all the symptoms of glucose deficiency the most concerning was the flat mood. Many thanks to Paul! I found a fungal infection which I treated with two bottles of ProEnt I found bacterial overgrowths, which I treated with Natren probiotics. I was also positive to toxoplasma, which I have not treated due to cost and efficacy of treatment. Maybe down the line? I had a sudden severe arthritis flare and have been on low dose pulsing Doxy for it, successfully, since My guess is improving iodine status and other micronutrient status, plus knocking back infections are the major contributors.
I used SAM-e successfully, for years at mg per day, upon waking to help with low mood…. In my case, my labs tends to improve a bit ahead of symptoms. Good luck to you! There are often many pieces to the puzzle! You may find it helpful, as did I, to minimize your variables, and track your protocol to the best of your ability.
Infections, arthritis, hypothyroidism, anemia, mood Anonymous also here I have Borderline Personality Disorder BPD and am taking a very low dose of risperdal same drug in higher doses used to treat schizophrenia. Just this morning, I took my A1c home test by Bayer which includes two tests in the box. Because of the unbelievably low result of first test, I took the second one different finger, different hand to check… Results:.
Type I diabetes, energy, mood Brian P. Hypothyroidism, energy, adrenal fatigue, bowel function, mood. I included each recommended supplement in my morning cocktail as it arrived in the mail. Within a few days after I was on everything, I noticed a major change, not physically, but mentally — a major reduction in OCD symptoms and general anxiety.
I was first struck while I was driving to the food store. I had a feeling of competence and ease. I was not gripping the steering wheel. I was, in fact, steering with one hand.
This is not something I do. Generally, I drive waiting for an accident, acutely aware of my killing potential.
And it took a little mental work for me to accept that perhaps I felt like a competent driver because I am one, not because I was suddenly drugged and delusional. A few days later, I began to feel that I was perhaps a bit too mellow. In poking around a little, I learned that the recommended dose for magnesium for women is mg mg is the recommended dose for men. Also, I have low blood pressure, and I was concerned that too much magnesium would lower it even more.
So I bumped my dose down. That felt more natural. Then, the real test: I was upset for a bit, processed the situation, and moved on. This was major, and completely unexpected. I may in the near future try eliminating selenium for a bit to see if my OCD symptoms ramp up. If you grapple with OCD, you might want to give selenium a try. Note that too much selenium is toxic, so monitor your intake. And if you regularly eat Brazil nuts, you are already getting a big hit of selenium, so be careful.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety Anonymous also here I have Borderline Personality Disorder BPD and am taking a very low dose of risperdal same drug in higher doses used to treat schizophrenia. I thought an update was due. Got off steroids in Oct after 14 months on an almost zero carb diet. Glucose deficiency symptoms led me to your site.
Added in safe starches in November and started to implement PHD with recommended supplements. Did a home fecal transplant in December. Both are now in the normal range. The results were disappointingly good: My observations convinced me that it was an infection and research indicates mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis MAP is the most likely pathogen.
Coli counts in my stool test seem to confim this. I have very little tummy pain now. I do still have some diarrhea but that is probably due to the high fat content of my diet. Thanks for all your information, Paul. My sister continues to be free of eczema.
Thanks so much, again. I have been following your diet for a few months and in many ways feel much better. Last year at this time I could barely walk 29 years old. I was diagnosed with Crohns along with several other autoimmune diseases including a lesion on the spinal cord. Thank you so much for the fantastic information! I am one of the new followers of the PHD. I listened to the your interview with Dr.
Mercola and wanted to learn more. I bought your book and started reading it immediately. I was on this for roughly 7 years and just up until recently I started experiencing more and more heartburn and a boat load of other problems. I was tested and poked and prodded and what the doctors came up with is that my gastric levels were elevated. I did this for 3 more years but recently I started getting uncontrollable heartburn all the time.
I then checked out your interview about 2 weeks ago and started on the PHD for about a week now and have not had to take my ranitadine in 5 days. It almost seems to good to be true. I am very grateful for the information in your book. Thank you very much! Skin redness, bloating, weight loss, eczema Brian Paul, Many thanks for the excellent work and great book.
I started PHD a few week before Christmas, and even with a few holiday wobbles, I can honestly say that I am already starting to see a number benefits. Gradually over a few shorts weeks the aforementioned issues have either gone or dramatically subsided. Eliminating wheat and reducing fructose has been surprisingly easy, reducing vegetable oil exposure more difficult.
Beginning the first week I could feel the difference in terms of energy and better sleep. Infections, arthritis, hypothyroidism, anemia, mood. You will remember 12 days ago I asked you about my sister who has CFS and was taking mls a day of safflower oil to keep eczema under control.
My guess is that there is a high level of oxidative stress which is diminishing AA levels, and the safflower oil makes more arachidonic acid and relieves the problem.
So the strategy I would try first is a supplementing antioxidants…. Your advice was spot on and the results have been miraculous. Within 24 hours her eczema was much improved and she began reducing the safflower oil.
Now 10 days later she is down to 10 mls of safflower oil and is confident she can discontinue it completely in a few days.
Her eczema has completely cleared and her skin is looking good. Not only that, but some of her CFS symptoms have improved. Her constant headache is not as severe, irregular heartbeat episodes have almost completely stopped and she is tolerating slightly more physical activity. Needless to say she is absolutely delighted and wants me to pass on her deepest gratitude to you. Once again Proverbs Words seem inadequate to express thanks for that. I hope she will also follow up your advice to treat any underlying infections.
That has been replaced with feeling nauseous even at the thought of the oil. Obviously her body no longer needs it. In searching the net I found this paper that seems to support your advice: Determination of fatty acid levels in erythrocyte membranes of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Thank you once again, Paul, for your generosity in sharing your knowledge and your time.
The effect is life-changing. Joan chronic fatigue syndrome, eczema Brian Paul, Many thanks for the excellent work and great book. Many thanks headaches, acid reflux, fatigue, bloating, weight gain Brian P. After a few weeks of little improvement, I experienced my first normal bowel movement in a long time years?
After more changes to my regimen, I now have normal stools on most days. The greatest improvements coincided with the times I added fermented tubers and later ThreeLac. I also think that cranberries, turmeric, increased amounts of safe starches, the Now Foods anti-fungal, and removal of my beloved coconut oil were all quite helpful.
My victory is not complete — I still get diarrhea fairly easily and the occasional hard stool — but the improvement is incredible. Many thanks, Paul, for helping me fix a problem that has plagued me for a long time. I wish you, Shou-Ching, and all your readers the great health and happiness you deserve. In a world full of useless and confusing information, having a good source is such a godsend.
Thank you for all that you do. She recently stopped taking birth control and her menstrual cycle just stopped. I started doing some research on her results from multiple blood tests and found her TSH has been slowly increasing and was at 3. So we started supplementing Iodine, starting about a month ago and slowly increasing the dosage each week, as well as eating about carb calories a day from white rice, taro, and cassava all covered in pastured butter.
Some mornings now her temperature has reached as high as I had one final symptom that was chronic all my life. I e-mailed you last week and you offered up some suggestions. I am, and will be forever grateful. Addition of starchy roots and a bit more animal fat did not help the situation. Once I reintroduced rice 1 cup on a daily basis , the problem was solved. This week — no more constipation for the first time in many, many years — amazing!
Thank you so much! You helped my mom who has suffered with chronic constipation for 60 plus years. She had taken Senna for decades. I read your post about using Magnesium Citrate instead. It works like a charm and she is no longer taking toxic Senna. At that time, I had a toe fungal infection which made the toenail of my right toe nearly black, plus it made my foot half-numb. After six months of PHD eating, some of the fungus had receded and some feeling had returned to my foot.
Recently, after a discussion or two on your blog mentioned Epsom Salts, I added a nightly foot soak in Epsom Salts. It seemed to me that almost immediately there was a reduction in both the visibility of the fungus as well as a reduction in the numbness. As of today, most but not all of the feeling has returned to my right foot.
Although I suspect the most recent improvement resulted from Epsom Salts, it might also be due to other changes which finally registered results. Those changes, in reverse order most recent changes first: I have been taking mg of Diflucan along with 2 caps of Kolorex for almost 2 weeks now… so not much time but I have seen some very significant changes in that time period. Before when attempting this high carb diet, my digestion went to hell. Never diarreah but not well formed, etc sorry to be TMI.
My sebhorreic dermatitis would flare up even though my skin was more moist and healthy maybe increased oils flared this. Allergies seemed to be worse. Sleep was sometimes better and easier, sometimes worse. I went high carb because I seemed to develop some thyroid symptoms on low carb that were easily erased with a high carb PHD.
Now, two weeks into Diflucan, my digestion is almost perfect. No IBS like urgency at all anymore. Better athletic performance, smoother healthier skin the seb derm redness has vanished but there is still some minor flaking… upping the bone broths, vit C, vitamin A to speed healing. Congestion is much much better and my gums have stopped bleeding! I also added in a number of their recommended supplements.
I have noticed my temperature has increased since starting PHD — I used to be always cold and being warmer feels much, much better — being constantly cold is a miserable way to live.

I will submit my before and after pics once I reach my goal. Thank you for all you do to help others! I have slowly been gaining weight over the past couple of years. Gaining over 60 pounds total in just two years.
For months now I have been trying everything I can to lose weight. I ran and worked out and ate way less and ate low fat and diet drinks. The weight just kept coming on, I was so frustrated.
I bought Abels book, did more research on my own as well and decided to start living and eating like I was born to do. Fatty Coffee, grass fed butter and steaks, fermented foods and bone marrow and even chocolate! In the first week I lost 10 pounds and felt amazing. I am currently in my second week and have lost 16 total now and have never had more energy. Hi Abel, I just got through reading your book and I have just a few clarifications.
My husband is thinking about fasting most days and then feasting at night. Is it okay to do that most of the time, or should he just do it a few days a week? For me, I have just bought protein and a green boost supplement. The protein shake has 5 total carbs 4 sugar and the greens has 8g of carbs 1g sugar. I mix it with about 2ounces of cashew milk and the rest water and a handful of strawberries.
Is that too much sugar or too many carbs? I am just trying to lean down. LOL We are now doing Hammer and Chisel, so the workouts are really geared toward weights and full body movements like you mentioned in your book. Look forward to hearing from you! Love the progress your client is making on the show! Hi Michelle, great questions. I fast through the mornings most days — that can work fairly well for men not always for women.
I purchased your 30 Day Fat Loss System and love all of the great information. I am slowly easing my whole family onto this diet. Can u have some bread but very low amounts? I need some breads in my diet. What do I do. I hate to break it to everyone but this method really is not new. Many people thought the Atkins diet was an excuse to eat as much meat and cheese as you want but if you read his book and followed it faithfully, it would be about he same as this Wild Diet. This process of burning fat by eating fat is also known as kertosis.
This diet works better for men than it does for women. For women it will work amazingly well for a very short period of time then stop working. It was only recommended for people who have a really hard time loosing weight.
I tried it once, it really worked. Let me just correct myself. This diet sounds an awful lot like the Atkins diet when the Atkins diet is followed correctly. Are there any kind of natural foods that can take the place of my bread intake?
Also I think I focus too much on the meat and fruits and leave out too many veggies. Any help is appreciated. I started the wild diet almost 3 weeks ago- But I also do the fasting- not eating until or 2pm. The first week I lost 5lb — I weigh now- but tomorrow will be the end of the 3rd week and I still have not lost any weight- should I eat more? OMG this diet is awesome. I had my second child 4 months ago and I just stepped on the scale to discover I was almost pounds! The sad truth of my sugar addiction and sedentary life style really hit home and I am motivated to make a change.
I am trying to convince my husband to go on this journey with me and hopefully I can break his Taco Bell habit and gain a support system because the hardest part of a diet is doing it alone with temptations all around.
Is this diet plan okay for someone who is at their correct weight but wants to add more fat to their diet? I lost lots of weight years ago doing Atkins and switched to Weight Watchers style of eating.
I do miss the fat. Great job, Kurt and Abel. As I understand it you eat fruit 1 or possibly 2 times a day and really no starchy carbs. I am trying to lose 19 pounds that I have gained gained why eating right and exercising a lot in the last year. Can you eat in between meals? I started today and had a egg plus whites omelet with a sausage link, peppers and onions and half a grapefruit. Can you eat in between meals and have this plan work? If so, what do you recommend eating in between meals?
Also, I will eat dinner and then two hours later go to a boot camp exercise class, do you typically tell clients to eat after exercising even if they have been eating throughout the day? I really enjoyed the show and I learned a LOT! Do you find varied success with men and women? My doctor wants me to only eat hormone-free red meat only once or twice a month at most. Is this still do-able or would you recommend I look elsewhere? Can you please send me an email and tell me whats in it. Since I am allergic to beef and all beef products like butter, does the diet work with vegan butter and cheese Steak?
Today I watched the whole series. Wow, I loved it. I believe the years of unsuccessful dieting has made me fat and depressed. Your plan is going to work for me because of the solid nature of it.
Abel, I tried cutting carbs before and found that it greatly affected my mood. Then I read on the internet that women over 40 need a certain amount of carbs or the hormones can get out of whack. Can you recommend a way to do this without my mood going south? Aloha, I love everything I am reading but wondering how this works with individuals with autoimmune disease and endocrine issues. I am following an autoimmune protocal which allows no grains, dairy, legumes, nuts, seeds, sugar,nightshades.
I eat about 65 to 75 percent veggies, 20 percent protein, some fruit and tablespoons of olive oil. I exercise a minimum of 14 hours a week. I have lost five pounds in a month. I would love some tips. I have an autoimmune disease and have followed a low carb diet for about 18 months and lost of my lbs.
I just found that my body did better not eating gluten, any starches or sugar and junk foods. I never counted calories. I feel now I am ready to step it up a notch and will try this diet to lose another lbs.
What I love about this diet it is not as restrictive as some keto and paleo diets that limit your vegetables making foods like cauliflower, brussels sprouts and peppers, etc. Never happened to me. And by the way I am severely disabled but still lost the weight just doing some strength training 4 days a week. Here is a funny thing I noticed about going higher fat. We were all so programmed to think low fat and high carb for so long that there is a fear of fat even if we intellectually understand it.
Is it possible to be a gluten free, vegetarian or vegan on this diet? I have celiacs disease and I have been a vegetarian for over ten years. Is it possible to apply them to my dietary restrictions? Abel, me and the wife recently watched my diet is better than your diet.
That got us motivated to get health, and to get in shape. Which has made us happier. I honestly feel like we have made a lifestyle change and intend to to stay on this track. May God bless you. My first week on the Wild Diet and I actually put on 2 lbs. Now I have been low carbing for 2 years and am sugar and gluten free in my diet.
I eat lots of veggies mostly greens and a little fruit. In those two years I lost over lbs. I am doing the fatty coffee in the morning and doing intermittent fasting, only eat in a hour time period. Maybe my body is adjusting.
It is a little scary. I enjoyed watching the show and reading through your website. I want to try the beef bone broth pre-made. Is there a company or brand you can recommend?
I started back in April of last year after my bloodwork came back with an A1C of 9. I had been on the typical diabetes medicines , refusing statins because of previous research. David Perlmutter heard him on your podcast also and now you, are my inspiration and have probably saved my life. I love your approach to dieting as a lifestyle. I made the jump from Paleo to the Wild Diet. Will the Wild Diet help help keep my depression at bay?
I started your 30 fat loss system. Any other tips or tricks you can offer? I would leave my 6 year old son behind. I pray this helps me like it has helped all the others. Thank you for sharing all this info with everyone. I just ordered your book, and I am so excited to try new ideas and ways to feed my family.
Like how can you feed a family of 9 on the wild diet without going broke? Also I want to find a healthier way for my kids. I have one son that has some major health issues and two teenager daughters that feel they are fat even though they are skinny. Please can you help me out with this. My breakfast is usually mixed roasted nuts, a few cranberries, ground flax seeds, plus the oats. It usually satifies me until past lunchtime.
I read The Wild Diet book over the weekend and started on Sunday. Only 4 days in and already feeling great! I use to be really active before all these ailments started slowly progressing my activity regressed right with it.
It sucks to know that something that easy works, but is so expensive to do. Just wanted to let you know that my family is beginning to follow the Wild Diet and we, too, are on food stamps with a tight budget. We bought the book and it has lots of yummy recipes. What we do to save money on the Wild Diet; 1. Only buy the food we need to reduce waste of food and money menu planning, grocery list, utilize leftovers, etc.
Eat the cheaper foods chicken vs beef, or at least expensive cuts of beef and buy only the dirty dozen as organic unless there is a sale 3. Shop sales and best prices Aldi has organic foods including dry goods, canned items, produce, and even Grass Fed ground beef! I then just fell off the band wagon and had a few of dark chocolate acai berries…so good but felt so bad. Anyhow I got back on track and I am going to get back on the horse.
I have felt great being on this new journey! I do fast and feast; and I am still stunned that I can lose weight. Thank you Abel and all you have to assist us in this way of life food journey! I am curious—how is The Wild Diet different from Atkins? It is no supersize that a keto-diet will promote very quick weight loss, but what about the long term cardiovascular effects of having a cholesterol-dense diet? Abel, This is Casey once again. I have been on this journey for 18 weeks and have finally reached my goal wait.
In New journey of toning up begins. Thank you for your help and easy to follow instructions and tasty meals. In the last month or so I took the cooking into my own hands kinda like you just pasted the torch on to me anyway thanks again.
By the way the wife is still coming great. Just in case you was wondering my starting weight was pounds my weight to say is pounds. Thanks for believing in the process. Is this a bad idea on the wild diet? Breakfast is 4 eggs, lunches are chicken salad, dinner is salmon and fermented veggies, dinner is protein and tons of veggies.
All meals have about 6 oz protein. Hi Pete, meal timing is a personal choice and eating often can work for some. For me, I much prefer eating fewer meals and practicing intermittent fasting most days — it provides more freedom from cooking, cleaning, and constantly eating.

Abel, A few years back there was the Atkins Diet, in which you left out carbs completely, and that was succesful for many. I think from memory it set up a process called catosis and some really sufferd from it, in some cases it lead to Kidnety failure.

Hello — I am a vegetarian but still following the Wild Diet now for two weeks, using eggs from pasture raised chickens and raw milk from pasture raised Jersey cows. I know the eating plan says to stay away from processed grains and beans but would it be acceptable if I made home made bread from organic unprocessed flour and the rest of the ingredients organic as well? How about a small dose of organic black beans?.
I ordered the book 8 weeks ago and have been following it ever since. I work out days per week, either a indoor rowing class or a tabata work out at home. This morning, for example, I sprinted. I typically have a fatty coffee in the morning, a green smoothie around 1 with two hard boiled eggs, and then more protein and fat in the afternoon celery with almond butter, almonds, cottage cheese, leftovers like a small piece chicken parm today for example.
At night we feast, chicken parm, steaks, burgers, chicken, fish and a big salad. How does this sound to you?

Is there any research showing positive long-term effects of the Wild Diet?
Thank you very much. I am a very healthy eater and have been following Paleo Plus — Dr.
