The Slow Carb Diet: Preface

This series of posts are dedicated to the Slow Carb Diet made popular by Tim Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Body. I’ve broken it out into four parts:

Preface:         Brief introduction to level-set
Part I:            An outline of what the Slow Carb Diet entails, Paleo vs. Slow Carb
Part II:           Experience and results
Part III:          Lessons learned and applying them going forward

Preface

Before we dive into the subject matter, I wanted to make a few quick comments to properly set the stage…

Mission statements. Mission statements can be helpful in serving as a reminder of the purpose of a task or any other undertaking. I’m not sure if you've been able to read our “START HERE” tab, but this series of posts on Slow Carb warrants a quick re-visit before we get going. Specifically, this excerpt:
“…we see ourselves as the 'curators' of healthy living practices.  We write about and research health and wellness methods that, through personal experience and the testimonies of others, are optimal for not just surviving, but thriving.”
It’s with the spirit of that mission statement Jessie and I approach all elements of health, fitness and general wellness, including The Slow Carb Diet.

About a year ago I read The 4-Hour Work Week (4HWW) by Tim Ferriss. I loved it. I’d consider it to be one of the most important books I've read. Some of the principles are a bit kooky, but there is a ton of practical application. I've witnessed first-hand some of the tactics recommended in the book to become more efficient in life and work, and to ultimately free up some of the most valuable asset in the world: time.

But these blog posts aren’t about the 4HWW, they’re aimed at another piece by Tim Ferriss. From my own positive experiences, the 4HWW gave Tim Ferriss some credibility. So much in fact that I decided to pick up this second book (which played off of the theme of the first), The 4-Hour Body (4HB). The 4HB is most notably known for “The Slow Carb Diet”, a method of eating Jessie and I have tinkered with over the past few months.

Without any further delay, let’s get into it! What is the Slow Carb Diet?
