Slow Carb Diet

Why I’m interested in the slow carb diet:

  • It’s simple, easy-to-adhere-to diet. Especially good for people who’ve already tried other diets and either haven’t achieved the results they wanted, or only did so temporarily before regaining their weight.
  • Don’t drink calories.
    YES: Water, black coffee, tea
    NO: Juice, Smoothies, Shakes, etc
  • Don’t eat anything white.
    NO: Starches, oatmeal, rice, bread, etc
    YES: Cauliflower
  • Eat 30g of protein within 30 minutes of waking up (apparently this helps reduce hunger and cravings later in the day)
  • Beans and lentils are good (because they add a lot of fiber and reduce appetite)
  • Vegetables are good
  • Proteins are good
  • No fruits, or fructose, or anything else that contains hidden sugars (honey, etc)
  • Plan out meals for 2 weeks in advance
  • Take 1 day off per week, and go totally crazy. Anything goes. You can eat multiple pizzas, pines of ice cream, etc

Or here’s a visual version from Tim Ferriss’ 1-pager:

What I like about this is really the simplicity. You can watch this segment from the Huberman podcast from June 2023.
