How to lose 9 kg (20 lbs) in 30 days without exercise !?!

In the confusion, find simplicity.

The Slow Carb Diet

Best fat loss through simplicity

20 lbs 9kg

It is possible to lose 20 lbs (9 kg) of body fat in 30 days by optimizing any of three factors: exercise, diet or a diet with dietary supplement. 20 lbs (9kg) for most people is a movement means to the bottom of at least two dress sizes, either from a dress size 14 to a size 10 or from a shirt XXL to L. Waist and hips show an even more dramatic reduction in circumference.

On 6 April 2007, for example, Tim Ferriss decreased weight of nearly 180 lbs (81.6kg) to 165 lbs (74.8kg) in six weeks, while adding about 10 lbs (4.5kg) of muscle, which means it has lost about 25 lbs (11.3kg) of fat. The changes are not subtle.

The plan that Tim Ferriss will present in this chapter the slow carbohydrate diet is the only diet besides the rather extreme Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD) who produced veins on his abdomen, which is the last place to lose fat.

There are only five simple rules to follow:

Rule # 1: Avoid “white” carbohydrates.

white carbohydrate

Avoid any carbohydrate that is or can be, white. The following foods are prohibited except for those under 30 minutes of finishing a workout kind of resistance training session as described in chapters “From Geek to Freak” or “Occam Protocol” means any (brown foods included) bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta, tortillas, fried food and crumbs. If you avoid the above foods and anything else white, you’ll be safe.

Just for fun, another reason to avoid these white foods : chlorine dioxide, one of the chemicals used to bleach flour (later companies made brown, a common trap), combines with the residual protein in most of these foods to form alloxan. Researchers use Alloxan on laboratory rats to induce diabetes. That’s right, it is used to produce diabetes. This is bad news if you eat anything white or “enriched”.

Don’t eat white stuff unless you want to get bigger.

Rule # 2: Eat the same meals over and over.

same meal

Those who pass successfully their diet, regardless their goal of muscle gain or fat loss, eat the same meals over and over again. There are about 47,000 products in the average grocery store in the US, but only a handful of them will not make you fat.

Mix and match the following list. This is the choices that produce the fastest fat loss for Tim Ferriss:


  • Egg whites with 1-2 whole eggs for flavor (or if organic, 2-5 whole eggs, including yellow)

  • Chicken breast or thigh

  • Beef (preferably grass-fed)

  • Fish

  • Pork


  • Lentils (also called “dal” or “daal”)

  • Black beans

  • Pinto beans

  • Red beans

  • Chickpea


  • Spinach

  • Mixed vegetables (including broccoli, cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables)

  • Sauerkraut, kimchi (a full explanation of this in under “Damage Control”)

  • Asparagus

  • Peas

  • Broccoli

  • Green beans

Eat as much as you like food items above, but keep it simple.

Pick three or four meals and repeat them. Almost all restaurants can give you a salad or vegetables instead of french fries, potatoes or rice. Surprisingly, Tim Ferriss find Mexican food (after having exchanged rice with vegetables) as one cuisine of the most conducive to the slow carb diet. If you pay an extra $ 1-3 to substitute in a restaurant, consider it like a tax for the six-pack, the fee you pay to be lean.

Most people who make a diet “low” in carbohydrate complain of low energy and stops because they consume insufficient calories. A half cup of rice is 300 calories, while a half cup of spinach has 15 calories! Vegetables are not calorically dense, so it is critical that you add legumes to add calories.

Eating more often than four times a day may be useful for higher carbohydrate diets to avoid gorging, it is not necessary with the ingredients we use. Eating more frequent meals also seems to have no effect on improving the resting metabolic rate, despite claims to the contrary. Frequent meals can be used in certain circumstances (see “The Last Mile”), but not for this reason.

The following meal schedule is based on a late sleep schedule as Tim Ferriss is a night owl who give up the ghost at 02:00 at the earliest, usually with glass of wine or a book in his hand as a heroin addict. Adjust your meal to fit with your schedule, but make sure to have your first meal within an hour after waking.

Meals are about four hours apart.

meal schedule

10: 00 am breakfast

2:00 p.m. Lunch

6: 30 pm second small lunch

8: 00-9: 00 pm sport training .

10:00 p.m. Dinner

00: 00 glass of red wine and a book before bed

Some of the meals Tim Ferriss who return again and again:

  • Breakfast (at home): Scrambled Eggology, liquid egg whites with one whole egg, black beans and mixed vegetables cooked or reheated in a microwave using Pyrex containers.

  • Dinner (Mexican restaurant): grass-fed beef, pinto beans, mixed vegetables and guacamole extra.

  • Dinner (home): grass-fed beef (from Trader Joe), mixed lentils and vegetables.

Remember: this regime is, first and foremost, to be effective, not fun. It can be fun with some changes (in the next chapter will show), but that’s not the goal.
