About the Author
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.

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.
