Ok, I've been rereading portions of the book (4th time, now) and I'm seeing something that doesn't make any sense. Tim states that fructose flatlines glucose levels nicely (and for a long time) but advises against using fruits because they increased his iron levels (and cholesterol and a few other measurements) which is bad ...

I've been following the slow carb diet for 2 weeks now and I start to feel sick every time I have to eat. It's the kind of sick you feel when you're about to eat something you dont want to, and the queasy feeling in my stomach persists even after I'm done.

I was just curious if you've told the people around you about your efforts to lose weight? I did it, told everyone, but was a little terrified to do so. Why do you some of us are ashamed about trying to get healthier?

Hi everyone! I have been on the 4HB diet for a few weeks now, and the most difficult thing for me is getting those 30g of protein within the first 30min of the day. I get up very early to catch a train for work, and generally get up as late as possible to give myself a decent rest. I always prepare myself the night before f...

Hello Everyone! I was recently referred to needing a 'harajuku moment' (that special intense moment needed in order to decide for making a dramatic shift and getting things going). I'm not sure if I had that moment yet but I might have had a moment strong enough to get me going anyway. Now, I thought I'd start this potentia...
