Want to lose weight fast and healthy?

Change your lifestyle to the "Slow carb diet."

From self experiment guru Tim Ferris Tim Ferriss', author of - "The 4-Hour Body" I have learned and tested that this is the best way to lose weight while still keeping healthy.

RULE #1 Avoid "white" carbohydrates. This includes all bread, rice (including brown), cereal, potatoes, pasta, tortiallas, and fried food with breading.

Also according to Tim, white carbohydrates are made with chlorine dioxide, which is used to bleach flower, and researchers use this to induce DIABETES into lab rats. So why on earth do we want this in our bodies.

RULE #2: UNFORTUNATELY you need to eat the same foods over and over again

You can mix and match any of the following

These foods include:

PROTEINS:
Egg whites with 2-5 whole eggs or whites depending on cholesterol level
Chicken breast or thigh
Fish
Pork

LEGUMES:
Lentils
Black beans
Pinto beans
Red beans
Soy beans

VEGETABLES:
Spinach
Mixed vegetables (including broccoli, cauliflower, or any other cruciferous vegetable)
Sauerkraut, kimchee
Asparagus
Peas
Broccoli
Green beans

Meals unfortunately should spaced apart with snacks though :)

Example similar to my schedule:

8:00am Breakfast
12:00pm Lunch
4:30pm Smaller second lunch
6:00-7:30pm Workout if scheduled...and I usually have some protein shorty after
8:00pm Dinner

RULE #3 DONT DRINK YOUR CALORIES. Guys I cannot stress enough. Stay away from sodas and juice. BAD BAD BAD.

RULE #4 DONT EAT FRUIT.

WHY? you ask...

According to time we don't need fruit six days a week. Think about this: If your ancestors were from europe how much fruit did they eat in a winter 500 years ago? Not much.

The only exception to the fruit rule is tomatoes and avacado.

Fruit -> fructose -> sugar whic is converted to glycerol phosphate -> triglycerides -> fat storage.

RULE #5 TAKE ONE DAY OFF PER WEEK

Eat whatever you want one day a week. Don't count calories. JUST DO IT!

Why? According to Tim dramatically spiking caloric intake in this way once per week increases fat-loss by ensuring that your metabolic rate  doesn't downshift from extended caloric restriction.
