I realized earlier today that I’ve blogged about food for 51 days straight. That’s close to 15% of a year, or 39.8% of how long I’ve committed to do this diet. That’s pretty crazy to me… who on earth has that much to say about FOOD??
I decided when I started 4HB that I was going to keep to it until the end of the semester. I am still keeping to it, but I am starting to wonder what I am going to do after that goal. If I keep my current rate, I will lose an additional 8.47% body fat and 15lbs before the end of the semester (though the chance of that prediction being spot on, given plateaus etc, is imperfect). After that, I don’t want to continue losing much more weight (final goal is 18%-20% body fat). Ferriss doesn’t give examples of how to get off four-hour body and neither do his followers. I can’t imagine eating like this for the rest of my life. However, I could see taking a number of Ferriss’s concepts and switching to paleo. I see that as entirely doable.
Just some food for thought.
