4 Hour Body

Do you want one of the most comprehensive books on dieting and weight loss? If you haven’t read the book The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss, you really need to buy it for your bookshelf. This massive guide is 567 pages long.

Ferriss is the entrepreneur and author who also wrote the books The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Chef, both best sellers. One thing that I like about the The 4-Hour Body book is the fact that all information is backed up by very extensive detail. In addition, the author provides numerous real life examples (including himself).

Probably the most important sections are the ones called Subtracting Fat and Adding Muscle. This first chapter in the Subtracting Fat section is The Slow Carb Diet I: How to Lose 20 Pounds in 30 Days. Only five simple steps! The author said that it is even OK to splurge one day a week. Eat anything you want! Check it out on page 75.

If there is one weight loss or dieting book that you should have, it is The 4-Hour Body. Get it from Amazon.

  1. Plan an enjoyable task each day: All of us prefer to enjoy what we do. Combining that with exercises can therefore help us to get motivated during workouts.

For example, exercising while listening to music can be considered as an ideal activity that you can add to your workout schedule.

  2. Exercise at the best time: Everyone has different cycles and patterns in their lives. Some people prefer to exercise in the morning while some of them enjoy it during late night. You need to take some time and think about the best time for you to engage in exercising. The time will provide motivation to you in a natural manner.
  3. Have a proper exercise plan: It is important to plan all your life activities in a proper way in order to avoid hassles. That applies to exercises as well. When you are exercising, you need to work according to a specific plan. When you feel a lack of motivation, you can take few minutes and go out for a walk. When you get in touch with fresh air, motivation will come back to you.
  4. Create breaks and rewards: Everybody needs positive motivators and if there aren’t any motivators, you should create them on your own. You can give yourself a break after completing a particular challenging exercise. At this point, you can think to yourself that you will have a cup of coffee during the break. This will definitely motivate you to complete the task as soon as possible and enjoy the break.
  5. Maintain a diary: It is important to keep records about your progress. Maintaining a diary and recording your progress in it at the end of the day is one of the best options available to keep yourself motivated. You will definitely get impressed after looking at your progress that is written in the diary. In addition, you can set goals in the diary and work hard to achieve them before the deadlines.
