Tim decided to put his extraordinary energy and brain to good use studying the easiest and best methods for getting into shape, and the 4-Hour Diet and the 4-Hour Body book were the result.
Below you will find a summary of the diet rules, but since this plan is explained in detail on his site and also in any number of articles, (this one for example), I'm not going to go into the details.
Because the majority of menu examples that you can find online feature beans and lentils, you will probably think you can't follow this plan on Paleo, but there really is no reason why not. After checking many of the menu plans that people have used successfully, it's very obvious that there is still a lot of variety here.
I think the best thing we Paleo eaters have going for us is the fact that we don't eat grains, beans and legumes, processed oils and sugar.
For those of you who often have to rush out of the house, take a breakfast burrito with you.
If you have a slow cooker and you want to make life as easy as possible, just choose 2 or 3 of these recipes and rotate them during the week. There are also a lot of great meals you can make in less than half an hour, so if you don't mind cooking a bit, choose a few of these and stock up on ingredients. Then again, if barbecuing is your thing, check the barbecue recipes and choose a couple of these as well or instead of the others. Look under the SLOW COOKER, 30 MINUTE and BARBECUE sections under the RECIPES tab for more ideas. If you really want quick and easy options, there are many different frozen vegetable mixes available now that are just as nutritious as fresh, and if you have found in the past that vegetables tend to go bad before you eat them, this can be a great option.
When you are eating Paleo you don't usually need snacks to fill you up, but if you do, you want to make sure you don't jeopardize your diet by not having the right things around to eat. Herbal teas and mineral water as well as regular tea, green tea and even coffee are all drinks that you can have and should always have available. As for snacks, I don't recommend cheese or fruit on this diet, but how about keeping a jar of nut butter* and some celery sticks in the fridge?
Instead of eating white flour and white sugar - which many find starts all those cravings again - stick to coconut sugar as your sweetener as it has the lowest glycemic index.
I've given you a lot of rich meals and decadent dessert recipes on this website, but unfortunately it's very easy to over do them, which is why I'm constantly pushing you to watch how much of these you eat. If you are one of these people and have a hard time losing weight, this plan may be the answer for you.
All in all, I really like the idea of this 4 hour plan because you're still eating what you would normally eat on a Paleo diet, but just in a different combination and at a different time - and this can make all the difference between losing weight or not. Valid comments are always encouraged and welcome, but please remember this is not a platform for self-promotion. You eat low fat food, you exercise, you are consuming fewer calories than you used to, but you are not losing weight, in fact you have put on a few pounds since your last weigh-in. All too often people embark on diets and exercise regimes and expect to lose weight immediately.


You might be developing muscle – which weighs heavier than fat – so you will look toned and slimmer, but weigh more. If you are eating too little in a desperate attempt to lose weight, then you will not only be putting your body under dangerous stress levels, but you will also send it into ‘starvation’ mode.
If you eat small amounts of food throughout the day, your metabolism will be fired up and working efficiently, so you will burn the energy as you need it. It is all very well only eating 800 calories a day, but if you lead a totally sedentary life you will not see the benefits. The following foodstuffs are low in calorie content, and because they take time to breakdown and process they make your metabolism work harder than usual – which keeps your metabolism efficient and helps keep you slim. These foods are known as negative calorie foods, but there is no such thing as negative calories, insteadthey are foods that, when eaten raw or slightly cooked, cause the metabolism to work at a high intensity. Apples,  cranberries,  grapefruit,  lemons,  mangoes,  oranges,  pineapple,  raspberries,  strawberries,  tangerines,   asparagus,  beets,  broccoli,  cabbage,  carrots,  cauliflower,  celery,  chili and peppers, cucumber,  dandelions,  endives,  garden cress,  garlic,  green beans,  lettuce,  onions,  papaya,  radishes,  spinach and turnips.
Four years later, I finally switched over and built my own website with the help of Andrew, my awesome designer and blog genius. The plus part are all the modifications that Tim has made, taking advantage of the latest scientific findings on getting into shape and losing weight. If losing weight quickly while still eating Paleo appeals to you, check out the book, website or articles for yourself. If you keep these extra rich recipes for your day off, you can indulge to your heart's content.

If you'd like to read a preview of any one of them, just click on the link below the book cover. There are a number of reasons for this gain in weight, and one, some or all of them might apply to you. Rather than looking at the scales, look at your clothes sizes – you might find that you have gained a pound but lost an inch. This means your metabolism will slow down and your body will try to store any calories it does get for survival.
Fruit juice is high in sugar, dried fruit is a great energy source, but it is also high in calories. If you skip breakfast and then eat a huge meal at lunchtime your body will take a long time to process the food, and anything it cannot process it will store (as fat).
Sarah writes for a number of sports publications and websites, as well as taking part in adventure racing, running and cycling activities. I post most of my meals when I go out to dinner and what I buy at the grocery store or take on road trips! You can however have unlimited tea and coffee (with a max of 2 tablespoons of heavy cream) and a couple of glasses of red wine every night.


Likewise, if you eat breakfast at 10am, then a snack at 11am, then eat lunch at 12 noon then your body will not have time to process each meal and so will go into storage mode. Build a daily exercise routine into your schedule and you will soon feel full of energy and vitality – and you will look great too.
When not rushing around the countryside on foot or bike, she walks her dog and loves to cook and travel. Your body will take time to adjust to your new regime, and so you will not see the benefits of your new regime for at least four or five weeks – do not expect miracles over night. Be proud of your curves, celebrate your muscles and be happy when you reach your ideal weight for your shape and fitness requirements. I’d love to make it back one day and I wanted to bring that dream to my clothing line.
You are also encouraged to drink lots and lots of water, which again is something we already do. The reason I chose the name, Simply Taralynn is because I don’t want to categorize my blog.
At first, I focussed on the number on the scale, eating everything sugar free, working out all day, not eating fat, not eating carbs, counting calories…and the list goes on. As of right now, I’m living it up as a blogger, photographer, freelance writer, social media marketer, and I have my new fitness line.
I’m no where near perfect, I make a lot of mistakes, I have a rocky past, but this is where I come to find ease, guidance and support. My mom walked into the bathroom one day before I was getting into the shower and she started to cry, which made me start to cry because right there… I knew I had a problem. After months of outpatient therapy, I was ready to start my new life as the healthy living Taralynn.
I gave up all the artificial sweeteners, fat free foods, and started to focus on being strong! I started eating healthy diet with protein, vegetables, complex carbs, fresh fruits, and tons of water!
Months after being cleared by the doctor, I was given an exercise regime and began to exercise as a way to be healthy instead of counting calories and focussing on a scale. It has taken me almost four years to share this story, but I feel as if so many of my readers are struggling everyday and need someone to talk to. Of course I have days where I call myself fat or feel guilty for eating pizza, but those are things I’m still working on.
