Abel James is a #1 best-selling author, top 10 App Developer, musician, radio show host, entrepreneur, and veritable health crusader.

Abel runs the extremely popular “Fat Burning Man” show – which is one of the top health podcasts on iTunes.

A few years ago, Abel James made some alarming discoveries. Almost everything that he thought he knew about health, nutrition, and fitness was completely wrong.

In this podcast we talk about:

  • How Abel became the "Fat Burning Man".
  • The most common misconceptions people have about diet and fitness.
  • How to develop healthy habits.
  • The workout plan that has helped Abel stay fit (he works out less than you think).
  • Ways for you to self-test and improve your health.
  • And much more.

Sol Orwell is the founder of Examine.com. I met Sol for a coffee a couple of months ago and was blown away by his passion and knowledge of health and nutrition.

Examine is an independent organization that presents un-biased research on supplements and nutrition. They currently have over 20,000 references to scientific papers and have quickly become my go-to resource for all things supplement related.

Sol and the rest of the team at Examine recently released The Supplement-Goals Reference Guide (see the giveaway details below).

There are so many supplements being pushed by companies and in the media. This guide can save people a lot of money because it tells you exactly what supplements are useless and what supplements have been proven to work on humans. Not mice.

The guide is automatically updated with their database on a daily basis so the guide never goes out of date. Love that idea.

In this podcast we talk about:

  • How the supplement industry is flawed and how Examine hopes to help people make good nutritional decisions.
  • The most widely used supplements that are a waste of money.
  • The supplements that Sol and I take.
  • How to use Reddit to learn more about health and fitness.
  • Sol's number one supplement recommendation (kind of a trick question, but you'll need to listen to find out).
