Round 2 on the Four Hour Body
Wait, it’s spring already? If you’re like me, you’ve probably picked up a little winter weight and might now be realizing you need to get it off!
I need to be ready for a marathon in May, the beach on Memorial Day, and beginning to train for the Savageman 1/2 Ironman! Sure, I’ve been keeping up with a lot of the physical stuff I do, but my diet has definitely fallen to the weigh side.
For the most part, I try to eat pretty clean by avoiding too many white carbs, access sugar, and empty calories. When I’m not eating clean I feel tiered, slow, and tight in my joints. Lately, I’ve been less strict and it’s starting to take a tool! Last week I decided I had to change things up.
A few years back, I really enjoyed following Tim Ferris’ 4-Hour Body program. Like most of Tim’s stuff, the core content is excellent (though some of it is a stretch). Because it’s simple, and encourages clean eating, I decided to give it another go. I’ll be posting about my progress and encourage you to either follow along, or start a new program of your own!
