A Nutritional Model You Must Know About...

The Slow-Carb Diet

From Wikipedia: The Slow-Carb Diet was popularized in The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss, and first mentioned by him in a 2007 blog post titled "How to Lose 20 lbs. of Fat in 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise". Ferriss claims to have lost about 25 lbs of body fat in six weeks on the diet. The Slow-Carb Diet is based on eating foods with a low glycemic index. It can be summarized as the elimination of starches and anything sweet (including fruit and all artificial sweeteners) and a strong preference for lean protein, legumes and vegetables. The main foods are eggs, fish, grass-fed beef, lentils, beans, vegetables (like spinach, broccoli, cabbage, radish), mushrooms, fermented foods and drinks (natto, kimchi, sauerkraut), unsweetened tea or coffee and water. Calorie-dense nuts and legumes such as pecans, chickpeas, hummus, and peanuts are allowed under careful portion control. Plain coffee is allowed, but all milk products are to be avoided except cottage cheese.
