Watching Dr. Oz (what's new?) and he had Timothy Ferriss on talking about the 4 hour body. He wrote a book with tips for losing weight in just 4 hours a week and they were medically proven. So I totally just ordered the book. He only shared 3 tips on the show but they were: Ice therapy, start with placing an ice pack on the back of your neck for 30 mins, work your way up to cold showers, and if you're brave enough ice bath up to your waste for 10 mins 3 times a week. This speeds up your metabolism. Number 2: Eat 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up. It gives your body the day’s supply it needs to burn fat. And the last one was to binge once a week. Dr. Oz said he wasn’t completely on board with that one, yet. But Timothy said the reason for this is if you are doing the small changes through the week then you can have that binge day which also helps people stick to a diet. But the key is to drink grapefruit juice before you eat and within an hour of the eating do squats for 60-120 seconds to get the sugar to go directly to your muscles to burn off rather than being stored in your fat. I’m anxious to see all the tips in the book. Thought I would share in case anyone else is a “Dr. Oz follower”

This is very interesting. Ice bath seems a little too crazy for me but i'd love to see some more tips once you get the book! :)

I'm shivering just thinking about that. I will have to do some research into the reasons cold would boost metabolism and see if it's worth it. I hate to be cold but I do want to boost my metabolism...hmmm?

How long would it take to set up an ice bath = too long! wow!

I don't have an ice machine in my fridge, I have only ONE little tray. So making 20 cubes and freezing more would take too long to work.

Buying bags of ice would be so expensive!

I wonder if they mean just coldest of the cold tap water?

The reason it boosts it is because your body has to work harder to do anything when it's cold. That was Dr.Oz's explaination anyway. happy

I totally saw part of this segment before I had to leave for class! Maybe I should order the book too. I totally LOVE that binge once a week tip! Don't know if I'm ready to go with that one though. I'm scared it will reverse my progress. But anyways on the show they said the ice therapy thing works because it burns more calories for your body to do things when it is cold. Like it takes more effort for your body to do it so it burns more calories.

Yeah, I don't think I would binge either. I mean once I got to my goal weight I planned on letting myself cave in sometimes. But knowing that drinking juice and doing squats will help makes me feel less guilty about it. bigsmile

i live in Vermont it is an icebath!

It seems like every week Dr. Oz has someone new touting a new way to lose weight. I dont watch him often but I think his viewers would end up horribly confused! Last week was a 14 day diet. The week before that was his own diet plan....

For a variety of reasons I'm becoming less a fan of his but I seriously think he needs more topics and new show ideas :)
January 24, 2011 4:28 PM
I like Dr. Oz. I think that he offers lots of good health info overall.

I just got the book on my phone kindle app...I actually am skimming through it right now! Lol Interesting read :)

I think he supports so many weight loss plans because not all of them work for everyone so the more options there are the better success. He and his team research them to make sure they are safe and will actually work. Dieting is the most popular subject so it makes sense that he constantly has shows about it.

I agree about not one plan fitting everyone but IMO, it's information overload. I think it's good to have a lot of info on hand to make the best decision but for someone like me, it's too confusing. In my old age I cant process too much info all at once :) LOL! I think it would be better if it wasnt week after week after week.

Edited to add: Now...all that said, I would still be interested to know how this plan works out for you once you receive the book. It does seem interesting with a very "common sense" approach.

The first thing he talks about is calorie cycling..funny I just started this a few days ago :) lol

I don't drink cold water much less take a cold shower! An ice bath???? I don't think so...not into the polar bear thing! I think I'd rather sweat to a cardio workout instead. LOL!

He needs to give more detail - it's so frustrating how fast the pace on the show is and his website isn't any better - it is full of videos from the show instead of more detail on the diet plans he gives.

I think that that is one of the stupidest ideas I have ever seen. If being cold would make you lose weight, how come up around the artic there are lots of little round people? (don't want to use any racial statements here). It seems like Dr. Oz has some way to lose weight on his show all the time. Why doesn't he just come up with a plan to cut portions and eat healthier?

I watched that show as well. I just went out and got the book as well. So far, it is an interesting read. I am just getting started, but was very intrigued by it. We shall see...

I could just jump in our snow each day in my swim suit!! That would cold enough I am sure. Or perhaps I could just go outside fully clothed! It is so cold here--I haven't seen it helping me lose weight yet! Might be interesting to try though. And I like the idea of the squats and drinking grapefruit juice. Might be interesting to try--though I don't generally drink my calories.

Hey people -

The 4HB is the slow carb diet. It's about cutting out basically all carbs except beans 6 days of the week. There is a slow carb thread for those of us doing it, do a search if interested.

Here is the diet info:

http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2007/04/06/how-to-lose-20-lbs-of-fat-in-30-days-without-doing-any-exercise/

So far I like it cause I do better with lower carbs but the ultra low carbs weren't cutting it for my rigorous exercise routine
