FDF Episode 037: In Your Face Fitness with James Fell


In this episode of the Full Disclosure Fitness Podcast I discuss exercise, food, and celebrities with fitness writer and author James Fell!

James is a fantastic (and hilarious) writer for some of the leading publications and websites around today, including the Chicago Tribune, Chatelaine, the Los Angeles Times, and Askmen.

He’s also a certified strength and conditioning coach through the NSCA, has an MBA from the University of Calgary, and has written over a hundred articles for AOL as “The Fit Family Guy”. In other words, James knows his stuffz.

He runs two websites – sixpackabs.com, and bodyforwife.com – and he is releasing a book called Lose it Right: A Brutally Honest 3-Stage Program to help you Get Fit and Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind. The book’s release date is April 1st (talk about a busy guy).

What makes James a great writer (and a great interview) is the fact that he pulls no punches – he truly tells it like it is.

Topics abound in this episode, but let’s just say we talk a lot about food, exercise, writing, and even James’ experience interviewing celebrities (he’s interviewed the Gunny from Full Metal Jacket, the cast of 300: Rise of an Empire and more).


More specifically in this episode you’ll find out:


  • Why “calorie burn” is the least important thing that exercise does.

  • The difference between a cheat ‘day’ and ‘meal’ & which you should implement.

  • Why depending on willpower might just get you in trouble.

  • What type of exercise is best for blunting the appetite?

  • The truth about “healthy” food vs. “junk” food.

  • The time of day you should work out to ensure you get it done!

  • Why some people are naturally “thinner” than others.

  • How being sick can actually cause you to gain weight.

  • And much, much more.
