Greetings 4 Hour Peeps, I had a rough couple days this week. I ended up in a couple situations, mostly at work (I'm a barista at Starbucks. Yeah, I get to stare at pastries 8hrs-a-day, 5 days-a-week, gnarly.) where I found myself VERY hungry and with no slow carb food in sight (I dare you to find ONE thing to eat at Starbuck...

Looks like I've reached my weigh loss goal, and some! My goal was to go from 125lbs at 22% to 105 and 18%... I've fallen off track a few times, jumped back on, and 2 months later I'm at 103 lbs and I'm guessing (I'm going to finish off this week and take an average of the body fat %) that I'm at 15% body fat now. I'll po...

I'm not doing supplements and only got...

Hi All. I've been on SCD since about mid-April. I haven't been keeping track of inches or lbs, rather I've just been going by how stuff fits. As long as my pants are getting bigger, I'm happy! In the past month I have started Kettlebell Swings and Jogging. So far I am down three sizes and I think around 22 lbs. The photo o...

I really recommend taking pictures like these to confirm. Start Date December 29th 2010 - weight 93.3 kg (205.6lbs) - body fat % 45.3 (horrifying!) Pictures ta...

So i started at 200lbs before starting the four hour body. I didn't measure my body fat just because for one I totally believed that this diet would work and also I could tell i was losing body fat just by the way my clothes started to fit. My first mistake i made on this diet was doing steak for lunch and beef for dinner ...

Hey Guys! Just thought I'd share my story. The more the merrier, right? One day in late April, I tipped the scales at 120kg (265 lbs). I'm around 185cm (6'1") and a solid build. In my youth, I was pretty active with sports but now at 41, I don't do much - infact, the last 4 mths specifically has been 100% exercise free (no...

Fellow Slow Carbers! As part of my plan to get healthy I planned on doing the one thing I've hated to do the most: running. I've never been much of a runner and even in HS I always weaseled out of running. Needless to say with all the weight I had put on over the years and the little mobility I had as a computer technicia...

I have struggled with weight my whole life, but a year and a half ago I decided to make a change. I did a diet that was similar to the slow-carb diet, but it lacked sustainability. I hear Tim Ferris on the Joe Rogan Experience and was instantly blown away by his immense knowledge. I got the book and love the diet so far!

However, the moment I started working out a little harder doing Jiu Jitsu and Kettlebell exercises I nearly plateaued in my “weight loss”. Pret...

I thought it was about time I uploaded some pics of my first ever successful diet. I probably could have done better, but I'm proud of the results. ...
