Can you change your life in just 30 days?
When I first overhauled my nutrition plan with a primitive version of The Wild Diet, I dropped 20 pounds in just over a month. More importantly, I no longer needed prescription medications to have terrific biomarkers of health.
Now – I’m very happy to say – you readers and listeners are making me look like a slacker.
Read a few of the stories below, and you’ll see that just a month of eating Wild could change everything.
If you watched The Wild Diet on ABC, you saw Kurt lose an incredible 87 pounds and 22% percentage points of body fat in just 14 weeks. His wife, Alecia, lost 32 pounds in 7 weeks.
So what is possible in 30 days? Read on below.

Ambriel: Down 6 Dress Sizes and 17 Pounds in 30 Days
I wanted to share my progress after 1 month on The Wild Diet. I am a 43 year old Stay at home Mom. My before picture was taken on 1/24/16 at an early birthday party for my daughter. My after photo was taken 2/25/16.
I had ordered Abel’s book In early January after watching Kurt Morgan on My Diet Is Better Than Yours. I had every intention of starting on 2/1 but after seeing myself in the birthday photos I knew I couldn’t wait another week. I was horrified at how unhealthy I looked. My skin was inflamed, I was bloated, and my body physically hurt. At this point food was killing me. I started Monday Morning 1/25/16.
I followed the book and recipes and hoped for a miracle. Well I got several!
Over the next 4 weeks I lost 17 lbs and several inches going from a tight size 18/20 to a 14! I saw my IBS symptoms completely disappear as well as a constant upper abdominal pain that had plagued me for nearly 3 years.
Also my GERD symptoms disappeared and I was able to stop taking a prescription medication! Skin redness and rashes that had bothered me for years disappeared. I was glowing!
I do the Wild 7 workout 2-3 times and take my 2 year old on walks around the block. My energy levels are through the roof and I can run, dance, and play with daughter again instead of feeling too tied to move. I crave Fatty Coffee every morning and love feeding my family the recipes in the book!
As I said at the beginning of my story food was killing me before I started The Wild Diet, now it nourishes and fuels me. It’s hard for me to think of this as a diet because traditional diets have a beginning and an end. For me this is a lifestyle now! I’m so thankful to Kurt and Able and Alyson for helping me Go Wild!!! You’ve all helped change my life!
David Drops 26 Pounds (Nearly 1 Pound a Day!)
First of all. I feel amazing. I needed to get that out there!
As a background, I used to be 335lbs, and had high cholesterol, sugar, and you name it. I had been experiencing gout in both of my ankles, which at 29 years old is almost unheard of. My doctor told me I couldn’t take gout meds because of how high my other tests were showing, and I really had to just deal with it without medication.
I started the Wild Diet after stalling out on other diets, namely the “My Fiancé made sure I didn’t just eat pizza” diet. She helped me get down from 335 to 305, but when I stalled there for about a year, I needed to change something. The gout was still happening, and I would have either a flare-up or just overall inflammation, making it difficult to get the exercise I needed. Jogging was out. Walking was only fine until I felt my ankles starting to twinge, and then I had to ice them and hope it didn’t swell up too badly.
I saw your diet showcased on ABC’s My Diet is Better than Yours, and after all of the success Kurt had, I knew it would work for me.
Starting at 305 lbs, I lost 26 lbs and ended up at 279lbs. My pants size went from a 44 to a 40, and is juuuust about to be a 38 (I can sneak into them, but they are snug!) and my belt is now on the smallest loop. I can fit my old suit that I haven’t worn since 2008, and my neck size dropped from about 19 ½ (very hard to find unless you shop at DXL) to 18 ½. My average at-rest heartrate has dropped from high-80s to mid/high 70’s.
As I said above, I feel amazing! I have so much more energy than I have had in easily 10 years. The gout is gone (knock on wood!) and I can walk and jog like I used to. The inflammation is gone, and it is a great feeling overall. I find myself more able to WANT to do things and less likely to want to take a nap. Yes even my libido has been more active by FAR.
I often say that my fiancé saved my life, but you and The Wild Diet helped her out and made her job easier!
Janet “Dabbles” in The Wild Diet and Sheds 17 Pounds
Hi Abel and Alyson,
I started “dabbling” in the Wild Diet around January 7th. I lost seven pounds from that date until the challenge started. I am now down 17 pounds total and am ecstatic about the beauty of this new lifestyle.
My blood pressure medicine has been cut by half, my Mobic for body pain has been halved as well. My doctor foresees that I will be off of these meds in no time and she was beyond thrilled with my progress at my visit last week. She wanting to hear all about the Wild Diet, said it was “perfect” and is going to spread the word to her patients!
My clothes are beginning to hang on me and I need to go shopping! Yay! I have renewed energy and amazingly, I am beginning to crave the veggies!
This will be my lifestyle forever and I thank you both from the bottom of my heart! May you be blessed beyond your “WILDEST” dreams in the days ahead! Thank you for saying “yes” to the calling of bringing divine health and happiness to the hopeless! YAY!
Cheers to you both,
Joshua Beats Sugar Addiction and Loses 20 Pounds in 30 Days
20 lbs down in 30 days! I’m feeling really great. I am a recovering sugar addict, and I’ve fallen off the paleo wagon so many times over the past few years. The Wild Diet has been different. The meal plans, the tribe support, the guilt-free desserts, and especially the green smoothies (where have these been all my life??) have made the Wild Diet stick, where basic paleo didn’t.
I’m a long time listener to the podcast, but getting the book and meal plans made a huge difference. I can’t recommend it strongly enough.
Danica Sheds 14 Inches and 23 Pounds
Finding this lifestyle has changed my life…in just one short month. I have lost 23 pounds and over 14 inches. My work relationships are better. I have so much energy, I tried racquetball and zumba for the first time. I started wearing makeup and making cute hairdos, that isn’t something I have done in years.Thanks Abel and Alyson!!!!!!
Wes Says: “WOW! What a Difference 30 Days Makes!”
WOW!! What a difference 30 days makes!
My journey to health and wellness started on January 1st with great success by “simply” cutting out sugar, carbs and dairy during the month of January.
During that month I lost over 24lbs and was able to wear shoes for the first time in over 2 years. However my sustainable journey began February 1st when I truly committed to the Wild diet 30 day challenge. I’m still a
big boy and affectionately call my stomach my “little, big belly” as I acknowledge it shrinking away.
I started the month weighing 321.4lbs with a 54″ chest, 56″ waist, 51″ hips, 18″ left bicep, 19″ right bicep, 30″ left thigh and 29″ right thigh.
After weigh in and measurements this morning… I weigh 304.0lbs with a 50″ chest, 50″ waist, 47″ hips, 16.5″ left bicep, 16″ right bicep, 27″ left thigh and 27″ right thigh!
That’s a total of 17.4lbs lost this month that’s 10% of my bodyweight since January 1st!! A whopping 23.5 inches lost over the past 30 days!!!! 6″ alone in my waist, no wonder my pants are falling off of me. lol I’m super excited about the next 30 days… 30 years even!
I have been fighting for disability assistance for the past year and as of last week decided that after another couple of months I will be able to take care of myself again. That alone brings tears of joy!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your guidance and support! I look forward to meeting you both someday and giving you a huge hug of gratitude and love.
POST NOTE: I swear I’m not pushing out or sucking in my belly, and find it hysterical that I always made fun of before and after photos being grumpy and sullen in the “before” pictures and happy and energetic looking the the “after”. haha, I AM happier and have reason to smile now, go figure. I wish I had taken pictures and measurements on January 1st, can’t imagine the change since then if in only 30 days the results are so noticeable. I can’t sing your praises enough.
Jen Says “Energy is Through the Roof!”
Just want to say Abel and Alyson, that both me and my partner have completely flipped our lifestyle and in no way look at this as a fad or quick fix!
Some of the incredible benefits I have personally received…
- Clarity 🙂
- Energy is through the roof!!
- Saving less on groceries because when I eat right and get proper nutrition I crave less, fuel my body effecienently and less frequently. Yeah sure, buying clean and properly sourced and raised foods is more expensive but hey, I look at it as preventative medicine!! Thank you for making this the most important aspect in my opinion!!
- Naturally getting tired at the same time each night and waking to the sunset!! This is sooooo cool to me! My cecadian rythms are right on point! Guess that’s what happens when you don’t spend the evening drinking wine and beer until almost midnight!!
- Exercising less but with a focused intensity …. And get LEAN!!
- Ran sprints for the first time in 20 years!!! Woot!
- Skin looks great!
- Hair looks amazing!!
- So much energy!!
- Down 6 pounds and my clothes are getting looser!
Ya know, life is about being joyful and thriving not fretting about not being healthy. This past year I hit a personal milestone with loving myself unconditionally and that is what brought me in direct contact with this amazing tribe!
When I love myself I make my health a priority!
From my family to yours,
Thank You!! ?
Shannon is Down 19 Pounds and Loving The Wild Diet
Alyson and Abel, Thank you for changing my life!!!! I feel so much better and have more energy. I feel like a more pleasant person, I have more confidence and I’m handling stressful situations much better. 30 days in and I can’t wait to see how far I get by 100 days.
So in the first 30 days of eating wild I went from 213 to 192… You are a genius!! So glad I decided to listen to your podcast.
I am glad to say that i am down 17lbs in six weeks. I plateau for about 3 1/2 weeks and that was absolutely frustrating. I stopped my t25 workout, i run every other day. I lost 5lbs in 5days!!! Thank you WILD LIFE!!!
I have struggled with depression anxiety for years and after almost three weeks on the wild diet I am happy to report that for the first time in years I finally feel balanced and healthy! My daughter (7) has struggled with adhd for years and after trying and failing with six different medications over the past two years she is off all meds, happier, healthier and more focused since going wild with me. This diet has truly changed our lives! Thank you Abel James Bascom!!!!!!
So I have this superstition about the scale – I don’t trust weight loss until it’s been gone at least 3 days. As of this AM I am very excited that I am officially 138!!! It’s the first time I’ve seen the 130s since a stressful move to Chicago 2 years ago. It also means I am within 15 lbs of my goal weight. It also means that since going wild on 2/1 I’ve lost 10.6 lbs and 2.5 inches on my waist.
I’m over the moon about these results and just wanted to say thank you to Abel James Bascom and Alyson Rose and the whole, amazingly supportive tribe.
Ever since I joined this group, my life changed for the better. Meeting all of you fantastic individuals helps me by motivating me to do better every day. In 34 days I lost 27 pounds and people keep giving me compliments on how nice i look now. I started at 292.8 lbs and I’m now at 265.6 lbs. I’m not going to stop until I reach my all time lowest. Then I can finally start my 2nd chance in life.
I can’t thank all of the Tribe members and 30-Day Challenge participants enough. You guys are such an thriving, supportive community. Positive changes are so much easier when you don’t have to do it alone.I just want to spread the truth about food so everyone can look and feel their best. #TheWildDiet Click To Tweet
