About the Author

Coined a modern-day "Renaissance man," Abel James is an author, entrepreneur, professional musician, and radio show host

As host of the wildly-popular Fat-Burning Man Show, Abel brings Paleo, ancestral, and real food principles to the mainstream. Also a strategy consultant specializing in process improvement and best practices, Abel has conducted research studies, presentations, and guest lectures in North America, Europe, South America, Africa and Asia for Fortune 500 companies, the Federal Government, and Ivy League Institutions.

In "The LeanBody Lifestyle," Abel reveals the secret to fat loss and healthy muscle-building techniques and unveils deceptive marketing practices, exposes misleading corporate propaganda, and highlights powerful special interests that have accelerated the worldwide obesity epidemic and health crisis.

A tireless researcher, Abel James completed high school and college in a total of just six years. Distinguished as Valedictorian at New Hampton School, he earned his Artium Baccalaureatus from Dartmouth College and graduated as a Senior Fellow with Honors concentrating in Psychological and Brain Sciences.

He focused his fellowship research on the evolutionary and biological basis of the faculty of music and the effects of technological advances on business, popular music, and culture. He published the findings of his research as "The Musical Brain."

A singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Abel produced his first recordings at the age of 15, playing guitars, keys, saxophones, drums, percussion, bass, and vocals. He has since toured North America and Europe with several groups, including as the director of the Dartmouth Aires (who were recently awarded "Silver" on NBC's "The Sing Off") performing to sold-out crowds and winning CASA's album of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a try, your body will thank you... June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Abel does a great job simplifying the complexities of the Paleo lifestyle, one that has without a doubt, saved my life. Paleo has allowed me to lose over 60lbs, ridded me of blood sugar issues, blood pressure issues, joint pain, digestive issues, allergies, and many other problems plaguing modern western society... Give it a try for 30 days and you'll never look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Cliff" Notes to Change Your Life June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this type of "diet" was just a fad like all the others. Boy was I wrong. This will change your life. Hence, it's not a "diet" but a lifestyle change. I've only been following this "Common Sense, Keep It Symple" lifestyle for a few months but I'm seeing great results. At 45, I'm looking better than I ever have my whole life. I feel great, and you owe it to yourself to check it out and make the change. Give it a try. Surprisingly, it only takes a few simple tweaks if your eating halfway decent to start with. There are other longer more detailed books out there that will tell you the same thing, so spend a fraction of your time and check this out to see if the Paleo lifestyle is right for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paleo = Optimal Health and Weight Loss July 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As the author of FIRE-UP YOUR FAT BURN! Super Easy Quick Tips, Strategies and Goals for Fast Weight Loss (Kindle Edition) I found Abel Jame's book to be an important tool not only in the area of weight loss, but in creating overall optimal health. I highly support Abel Jame's viewpoint that a paleo lifestyle will indeed lead to fat loss, muscle strength and much more. Inflammation via carbohydrate intake and more is the core cause of weight gain, ill health and faster aging - and this is exactly what Abel James is addressing for you. His ability to relay the Paleo lifestyle in an easy to absorb manner will make the difference between ill health, weight loss and faster aging or optimal vibrant health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready, willing and Abel! June 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
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 sleep suits!) 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 which is only crossed by nutritionists or those of us who have since been bitten by the bug and want to take a deeper look at the lost art of staying healthy. 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?

Been following Abel on his blog and this is a great easy read and his approach is backed by science as well as common sense. His writing style and background show that he will be around for awhile and more books should follow

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice overview of the Paleo Diet October 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this was a good overview of the Paleo diet. It was a quick and easy read and hit all of the highlights one would expect. Certainly there are books that go into a lot more depth and detail, but considering the intent was to be an introduction to Paleo, this hit the nail on the head.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Quick, Easy Way to Get Your Primal Feet Wet June 8, 2012
By Snapps
Format:Kindle Edition
This intro covers all of the basic tenets of the Paleo diet (lifestyle, really): the over-arching concepts, the food and the activity. But it's such a super-quick read that you don't get blinded by info. You really do just get the right amount of information to grasp the concepts and get started! My favorite part is the Paleo in a Page. I can stick that on the fridge and always have a quick reference.
