Has anyone read or tried his "diet?" It's more of a change in the way you think about eating and is similar to Adkins and South Beach but supposes true no carb diets fail b/c the calories are insufficient, so he adds legumes.

This may be out there in another diet, but I am interested in your thoughts.

Thx, J

I know two men who did try the diet after reading 4 Hour Body. One was successful for about a week before he got bored (the cheat day was not sufficient to cure his boredom) and the other lasted a couple of months and lost quite a bit of weight. He has since gained quite a bit back, however Smile

I did read the diet portion of this book. I liked the ideas at first, but I quickly saw that I would get bored of the meal rotation that he advises and the lack of fruit that he suggests. I also think that beans can be irritating for some people, so I'd watch out for that.

I read the Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson soon after and those ideas clicked much better with my personality and my digestive system. So I would certainly vote for going primal/paleo over 4 Hour Body. But hey, to each his own!

If you do try it, let us know how it goes! Best of luck!

Nutrisystem Fail...
Now that you know how bad processed food makes you feel you can indulge in natural food which you love without any ill effects. Real foods don't have ingredients they are ingredients :)
