The Slow Carb Diet: 5 Rules From The Four Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss
1) Avoid “white” foods and carbohydrates. All that are or can be. In essence avoid simple sugars.
No bread, rice (including brown), cereal, potatoes, pasta, tortillas and fried foods with breading.
2) Eat the same few meals over and over again.
3) Don’t drink calories.
4) Don’t eat fruits.
5) Take one day off per week and go nuts.
A few tips with this diet:
Eat 4 meals per day: each with beans/lentils, lean meat protein or eggs (25 grams protein minimum) and green vegetables
Drink 8 glasses water per day, 4 with lemon juice
Exercise 2-3 times per week, raising your heart rate doing something that leaves you feeling different afterwards in your body (energy/focus/sweat/fatigue) – Most likely this is 10-30mins each time for most people and most activities.
Drink tea, coffee, water, all without sweeteners (natural or artificial), some with cinnamon
Eat meal 1 within 30 minutes of waking up
Have an overload day once a week that starts at lunchtime and goes until bed and includes fatty and starchy foods, plus some alcohol
Take supplements to enhance fat loss and support your body: Green Tea Extract*, Alpha Lipoic Acid*, Aged Garlic*, Policosanol*, B Complex, Vitamin C, Calcium/Magnesium, ChromeMate* and take 1 day off the starred items each week 3 days after overload day, 1 week off per 2 months
Get adequate sleep – between 7 and 9 hours every night – See more at: http://www.fourhourbodycouple.com/2011/05/10/the-new-slow-carb-rules-what-to-do-not-what-to-avoi/#sthash.L4JLg73m.dpuf
Weight loss is generally a good thing. However, that said, while we generally conform to the rule, calories in-calories out= calories left behind–i.e. fat, it doesn’t always work that way.
