I set out at the beginning of this year with a goal of reaching 10%
body fat. Thanks to the Slow Carb Diet, I have been making outstanding
progress towards this goal over the last 7 weeks.
Now that I am getting closer to it, I’m realizing just how SKINNY I
look! If you’ve been following along since my first post, you know I
In week seven, my weight stayed consistent from the week before. This

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about just how over the top I’ve been going on my off day on the Slow Carb Diet. A lot of people seem to think you can’t go too overboard or you’ll ruin all the progress. In my experience, that’s not true at all. Check out the smorgasbord of fattening crap food I inhaled on Su [...]
Another week of the slow carb diet, another week of solid progress! For a summary of my first four weeks of progress, see my earlier post here.
During week five, I cut the PAGG stack that Tim discusses in The 4-Hour Body, in order to gauge any change in progress as a result. Otherwise, I kept the diet consistent and followed the parameters of [...]
Well, this time I got a picture of the breakfast. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get a picture of dinner. Happy hour with an important client turned into a full blown sit down meal, and stopping everyone so I could take pictures would have been too strange even for me. That being said, here is what I ate for the day:

I am a frequent business traveler. Like other business travelers, I have had difficulties over the years in consistently finding healthy eating options while on the road. You have to eat every meal in a restaurant. Often, there is pressure from others in a teaming environment to eat at restaurants where healthy options aren’t the norm.
