Compelled to write my first ever podcast review :)

By Krstya - Dec 07 2019
Read more
After finding Fat Burning Man I’ve more or less stopped listening to most of the other health and wellness podcasts. I’ve found more and more that I agree so strongly with Abel’s views on the health industry. His expertise in nutrition, sound advice on exercise, and science backed information on how to live a long and happy life is refreshing and honest. His guests are GREAT and I particularly loved the recent James Lugo episode. You wanna talk about an honest and compelling conversation!! This podcast has it all and more! Thank you Abel (and family) for bringing inspiring and authentic content to the masses. Listener for life here. Best, Kristy Armstrong (Atlanta, GA)

Abel always provides information that I can take action on improving my health. His going off the internet for 4 months was missed. I am so happy he and his wife have recovered from CO poisoning. So what does he do first show back? Provides hope. What a guy!!
