With so many Americans now working regularly from home, it can be difficult to stay healthy and active. This is especially significant given that the obesity rate in the U.S. rose from 30.5% in 1999 to over 40% in 2017-2018.
While many nutritional approaches can be effective, Tim Ferriss’s slow carb diet is one intriguing option for those who want to eat better, improve their energy, and shift their body composition. The general rules for the diet are as follows:
- To only eat food off the approved food list (mainly meat, poultry, fish, eggs
legumes, vegetables, healthy fats).
- Don’t eat food off the non-approved list (avoiding foods like white carbs, fruit, and dairy).
- Don’t drink your calories.
- Eat 4 meals a day.
- Have one cheat day per week to eat what you want.
