Slow carb diet, which was popularized by Tim Ferris in the 4 hour body, is a fantastic way to lose weight without it feeling like it’s a full time job. The diet is predicated on minimizing intake of foods that promote fat storage.

Rules to Slow Carb Diet

  1. Avoid white carbs such as breads, potatoes, rice, and pastas.Eat the same few meals over and over again. Try to stick to healthy proteins, legumes, and vegetables. I find that the easiest foods to stick to on campus are eggs, chicken, beef, beans, lentils, broccoli, and spinach.
  2. Don’t drink your calories. Drink water instead!
  3. Don’t eat fruit. Yup, you read that right. Although they are high in micronutrients, many fruits are high in sugar and don’t need to be eaten on a daily basis.
  4. Have a cheat day once a week. Your body will need this so that your fat loss doesn’t plateau. Spiking calories once a week
    will make sure your metabolism doesn’t downshift. For more information check out “The four hour body” (or just google it).
