Tim Ferriss' Slow-Carb Diet Test: Day 3

Today marks the third day of Tim Ferriss' Slow-Carb Diet, as laid out in The 4-Hour Body.

For the next 27 days, I will execute the plan, document my progress, and share any relevant observations along the way. Does it work? Is it worth doing? Do I have enough will power to stick it out? I invite you to join me on this 30 day adventure and find out.

  • Meal 1: Grilled chicken (8 oz), black beans, green beans, black coffee, and water
  • Meal 2: Grilled chicken (8 oz), black beans, green beans, and water
  • Meal 3: Grilled chicken (8 oz), red beans, broccoli, and water
  • Meal 4: 1/2 pound ground beef (93/7 lean), scrambled eggs (2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites = 6 eggs), red beans, broccoli, water, and two glasses of red wine
  • Snack: Handful of pepperoni slices
Physical Activities
No physical activity recorded.

  • Weight: 260 lbs
  • Height: 6' 2"
  • Age: 35
  • Body Fat: 25.5% 
  • Chest: 46"
  • Waist: 43.25"
  • Arms: 17.25"
  • Shoulders: 53.5"
  • Forearms: 14"
  • Neck: 16.25"
  • Hips: 46.25"
  • Thighs: 26"
  • Calves: 18"
Day three felt normal. I worked a full 12 hours at the office with no noticeable loss of energy. I had so much energy that I went to bed around 3 am the next morning.

Thanks to the increased fiber, I frequent the men's room more often than usual. Fortunately, there are no uncomfortable side effects to report at this time.

Similar to yesterday's observation, the hunger pains are gone. Knowing I have to eat four meals, I am now forcing myself to eat. However, there was a moment around midnight that I got the munchies and ate some leftover pepperoni slices. That was good!

Final Thoughts
I failed to workout, include protein drinks, or meet my gallon water goal. Maybe tomorrow I'll do better.

For those following along, how do you feel? What could you do better tomorrow? Leave me a comment in the section below.
