Wow, the new job is cer­tain­ly keep­ing me busy.  So busy in fact that I have not had the time to write much the past two weeks…  Not real­ly what I had planned on, but you have to make hay while the sun shines as they say.

I just bought Tim Fer­ris­s’s new book called the 4‑Hour Body.  It is Tim’s for­ay into help­ing peo­ple lose weight and get into shape quick­ly with­out starv­ing your body of much need­ed require­ments.  Because my time is so lim­it­ed these days, I just pur­chased this book, will be read­ing it, and with luck be able to put some of the tech­niques to use.  Tim, appar­ent­ly did a TON of research before writ­ing this book, and has kept a log of all his work­outs and the results since he was about 18 years old which gave him a ton of his­to­ry to work from.  Inter­est­ing to say the least.  I will review the book once I have fin­ished it, and if I think it is worth the time, I will track my efforts where I can and report back to you so that you too can give it a shot if you wish.

Here is the descrip­tion of the book off of

Thin­ner, big­ger, faster, stronger… which 150 pages will you read?

Is it pos­si­ble to:
Reach your genet­ic poten­tial in 6 months?
Sleep 2 hours per day and per­form bet­ter than on 8 hours?
Lose more fat than a marathon­er by binge­ing?

Indeed, and much more. This is not just anoth­er diet and fit­ness book.

The 4‑Hour Body is the result of an obses­sive quest, span­ning more than a decade, to hack the human body. It con­tains the col­lec­tive wis­dom of hun­dreds of elite ath­letes, dozens of MDs, and thou­sands of hours of jaw-drop­ping per­son­al exper­i­men­ta­tion. From Olympic train­ing cen­ters to black-mar­ket lab­o­ra­to­ries, from Sil­i­con Val­ley to South Africa, Tim Fer­riss, the #1 New York Timesbest­selling author of The 4‑Hour Work­week, fix­at­ed on one life-chang­ing ques­tion:

For all things phys­i­cal, what are the tini­est changes that pro­duce the biggest results?

Thou­sands of tests lat­er, this book con­tains the answers for both men and women.

From the gym to the bed­room, it’s all here, and it all works.

YOU WILL LEARN (in less than 30 min­utes each):
How to lose those last 5–10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd com­bi­na­tions of food and safe chem­i­cal cock­tails.

* How to pre­vent fat gain while binge­ing (X‑mas, hol­i­days, week­ends)
* How to increase fat-loss 300% with a few bags of ice
* How Tim gained 34 pounds of mus­cle in 28 days, with­out steroids, and in four hours of total gym time

And that’s just the tip of the ice­berg.  There are more than 50 top­ics cov­ered, all with real-world exper­i­ments, many includ­ing more than 200 test sub­jects.

You don’t need bet­ter genet­ics or more dis­ci­pline. You need imme­di­ate results that com­pel you to con­tin­ue.

That’s exact­ly what The 4‑Hour Body deliv­ers.
