After hearing about this book for months I finally read it — & I’m hooked! Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Work Week, spent years researching how to accomplish rapid fat-loss, have incredible sex & become what he likes to call superhuman…are you intrigued yet?

The book is not meant to be read cover to cover, instead Ferriss urges you to pick & choose what you’re curious about/want to work on. I decided to read the chapters on subtracting fat, adding muscle, running faster & further. He had some very interesting things to say, many of which I’m going to try…including the 4-Hour Body Slow-Carb Diet, for the next four weeks.

The Slow-Carb Diet is straight forward: build four meals a day including one protein, one legume & vegetables. No calorie counting, no portion control (eat until you feel full) for 6 days a week. One day a week you get a free day to splurge on whatever you’d like (he calls this day Dieters Gone Wild), no holds bar. The goal of this diet is to isolate sugars, simple carbs & junk, trimming you down & allowing you to lose fat while buidling muscle in the process.

Ferriss encourages you to measure, weight yourself & take pictures on day one of the program & continue to do so to track results. I started on Monday, stay tuned for weekly updates on this little experiment. I’m already looking forward to splurge day (Saturday for me). Wish me luck!
