As so many of you know I am an advocate of the Paleo diet.
But, I am also a huge fan of lazy.
So when I found out there was a book called The Four Hour Body I had to read it – ironically, The Four Hour Body is a tome and is taking quite some time to read. Within it the author, Timothy Ferriss, does a lot of self experimentation with dieting and physical training. He has created a diet called The Slow-Carb Diet which is a lot like Paleo, but with some changes.
For one, legumes are allowed on this diet (let the farting commence).
Second, no fruit (Andrew is bemoaning the loss of his 4-times a day applesauce habit).
Third, one day a week anything goes (Bring on the fro-yo!!!!)
So, Andrew and I are going to try this diet out for a month or so. Apparently, according to the author this diet will cut body fat percentage. I hope this means I can finally meet my dream of having washboard abs (and that Andrew doesn’t get hijacked by a biology teacher short a skeleton).
Tomorrow we take before pictures. Monday we start the diet.
P.S. – if you have any interesting recipes that use beans please post them in comments.
