End of Week 3 Results – Update 2!

Hello again, Shortly after I posted my results for week 3 (where I was confused by the increase in body fat this week of 5lbs overnight!) I re-weighed myself before breakfast and after going to the loo and my body fat dropped back to exactly where it was on Friday at 22.2% – this certainly […]

Binge Fail!!

Evening all and apologies for not updating you since the weekend – its been a busy few days at work. So the first binge was a bit of a wipeout in all honesty. After our weigh-in and results on Saturday morning the day was so busy that although we had a few treats we really […]

Pre-Binge Update

Morning campers! Just a quick note to say that me and the missus have just done our usual morning weigh-in before breakfast and put the trusty MyoTape tape measure to work and the news is overall rather positive for both of us. I’ll update charts and detail measurements and all that later on this weekend […]

Updated Withings Charts

Good evening all. Just a quick note to say that I have corrected the broken link on my Body Measurements Page and this should now be working. Weight today is the lowest since I bought these scales a few weeks back and therefore the lowest since starting the Slow-Carb on Monday (7th). Early days but […]

Up and Running!

As I previously stated, last week time got the better of me and I postponed the official kick-off of the Slow-Carb Diet until this week (Monday 7th March). I’m happy to report that I’m underway and have just about completed day 2 with no reported hiccups. My initial impressions are good. I’ve managed to complete […]

Enough Water?

If you are like me you might find drinking 2-3 litres a bit of a mission. My biggest downfall is keeping the need to keep drinking the H2O throughout the day at the forefront of my thinking – easily done with a long commute and a busy day in the office. If it’s not in […]

With the best of intentions to start the Slow-Carb Diet tomorrow (Monday 28th), this weekend has proven too busy to allow time to get the required food shop in in order to get started. I know what your thinking – weak-minded? In actual fact I’ve just returned from a week’s holiday and with tons of […]

Tracking Tools

One of the key principles covered in the book is the need to monitor your progress on a more granular level than most of us will have previously. Measuring just your weight can give a mis-leading picture of your progress as there are other (sometimes more subtle) changes than can go unnoticed. Regularly tracking a […]

The Beginning!

Where did this all begin? Well, with the book that is the 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferriss of course. I have long enjoyed Tim’s blog and previous book (the 4-Hour Work Week) and recently got my hands on this new book, keen to see how Tim hacks his body like he does his work. While […]

Withings Charts

As mentioned in one of the featured and first posts, I’m using the Withings scales to measure my progress going forward. I actually picked these up a few weeks ago in preperation to judge how accurate and useful they would be for me. Happy to report they are great and a huge help and time-saver. […]
