Reading the 4-hour body lead me to follow a Paleo lifestyle. So it doesn't really matter if he himself is Paleo. His diet leads here, I'm pretty sure lots of us started there. The 4-hour body is an eye opener for most : Diet impacts your mood,... (more)

http://jackkruse.com/the-evolution-of-the-leptin-rx/ I first saw this concept mentioned by Tim Ferris. It sounds interesting, but won't it make you sick? Usually to much exposure to cold temperature makes my nose freeze up, and when it warms up... (more)

That protocol is idiotic. Most of the positive results that are obtain from cold hydrotherapy come from a secondary, not a primary response. Cold exposures should be short (usually 30 seconds) and then your body responds by trying warm the area. ... (more)

One of Tim Feriss' big assertions in the 4 hour Body is in order to accelerate fat loss, you should consume 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking. Usually, I am not hungry at all when I wake up and find it very easy to wait to eat until... (more)

Being a firm believer in the Paleo/Primal way of life after reading Paleo Solution, Primal Blueprint, and New Evolutionary Diet I can truly attest to the health benefits this way of life has offered me. BUT a couple weeks ago a friend recommend I... (more)

I think Tim's slow-carb diet is excellent for people who eat SAD. Apart from beans and a cheat day, it's a lot like paleo. If you're happily living the paleo lifestyle, I think it's probably a step in the wrong direction. I tried it out for a... (more)

let's talk about the 80/20 rule as a law of efficiency (not the 80% paleo, 20% cheat food rule), whereby you figure out which 20% of your inputs are producing 80% of the results, or in this case: which essential foods should provide the... (more)

For what it's worth, you may want to look into replacing some of that grass-fed beef with oily fish. You've got the sardines on there, which could cover your omega-3 requirements, but you could also replace some of the beef with fish and get... (more)

http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2012/09/12/nusi/ This is more of a discussion than a question but anyway. This is going to gain a lot of controversy IMO. Very interesting though, it's about time they had a study like this. What's everyones... (more)

I watched this video last week and gave it a try! I think it works, but it was hard to tell because I didn't boil my eggs long enough- I blew soft-boiled egg all over the office of my Crossfit gym :( Anyone else tried it & had any... (more)
