Tim Ferriss is correct in his assertion that it is probably not a good idea to read his book The 4 Hour Body cover to cover. If you do, it is revealed that he is something of a nutter. However, his slow-carb program has something that tickles my sense of what is right and wrong, good and bad, about the typical Western diet.
Today, I have decided to test the program for four weeks. If it proves reasonable and reasonably sane to keep up and does absolutely anything for my fatitude, we'll revisit the problem.
