Now, taking about the content, With this book I Saw a real body transformation losing abdominal fat that it's been stubborn for years, thanks to the slow carb diet that I love and I can easily make it part of my routine. Thanks for that Tim F.
As a principle, "attempt to get the most gain from the least amount of effort" may be sound and worth taking a look at, but the actual advice in the book just doesn't work.
My partner and I, following a basic low glycemic method have each lost fifteen pounds in the last year--he a bit more than that. Lots of vegetables, sensible portions, ride the bike, stay away from sugar. It was easy to do. When we stalled after the holidays we tried this method as an alternative. We found it both restrictive and essentially unproductive for weight loss or muscle gain.
Altering your diet is a delicate social and emotional balance, and rather than like a lifestyle The Four Hour Body is like following a bus schedule. Eat this now! Make sure to eat this later! Never anything white! The huge amount of protein advocated actually packs a bunch of calories and fat. It's almost impossible to get around too much focus on food when required to eat six times a day very specific things.
Bottom line? Loved the read, went back to the old more sensible method and have shed the Christmas gain and back on track.
I might have to go back to his sample binge day log -- NOT a typical diet day -- for clues on how to actually use his tips. Wouldn't, say, a complete shopping list and hourly dosing schedule for 1 week of food and supplements have been appropriate for a book with so much space devoted to a specific diet plan? I'm actually flipping through it as I write this to see who to blame, but there's no editor. Mr. Ferriss can fill a book with frothy anecdotes, amazing discoveries, and throwaway references all he likes, apparently, without having to pull anything together. I'm not impressed. When he gets an editor, I'll consider buying another of his books.
