4 Hour Body Slow Carb Diet Review
By Lane Reid
Timothy Ferris, author of this book (which is very entertaining) created this diet. It is not your normal low carbohydrate, high protein diet. Yes, it is still high in protein but specific types. It avoids not only all “white” carbohydrates but any carbohydrate that could by white and obviously sugar. It avoids all fruits as well which are high in fructose and converted easily to glycerol phosphate in the body. Proteins are definitely an important part but he goes on to state specifics like eating protein first thing in the morning within 30 minutes of waking is important. Beans play a very large part in the protein sourcing in this book especially black beans, pinto beans, red beans, soybeans, and lentils – all great in protein and fiber.
One of the great things about this diet is that you get one day off a week to eat anything you want. Yes, anything. He recommends Saturdays and going crazy eating pizza or whatever it is you have been craving. I did this diet for several weeks one time and it works. Another positive trait is that you can stay on the diet until you lose the amount of weight you want to lose or for good.
Very healthy and nutritional
Allows 1 day a week off
No calorie counting
His recipes and recommendations for meals are tasty
It can be inexpensive by buying frozen vegetables
Chipotle bowl (without rice) fits nicely into diet as does Mexican food
Allows red wine almost nightly
Discipline not eating white carbs and sugar
Requires cooking at least to some preparation extent
