These protein bars taste absolutely delicious are not only are they low in sugar and high in protein, but they’re packed with fiber, which means they digest slowly – very much like beans do. As a go-to every now and then for anyone on slow carb, they’re perfect. Check out the Choc Fudge, and the Peanut Butter Chocolate flavors – click here for more information on both flavors.
This diet soda has a twist – it has no artificial sweeteners at all. No Splenda, no Aspartame, and no other nasty chemicals. No sugar alcohols either.
All the flavors taste great, and all have 0 calories. They’re sweetened with stevia, which has no effect (or even a slightly positive effect) on blood sugar, and tastes great. Best of all, it’s totally natural (it comes from a south american plant).
Weight Loss Tools
The PAGG Stack is a supplement combination tested by Tim with many slow carbers to increase the speed of fat loss. It includes Green Tea Extract (decaffeinated), Garlic Extract (aged is best), Alpha-Lipoic Acid, and Policosanol. The combination of these supplements helps in a variety of ways, from speeding up fat cells emptying and dying off, to inhibiting fat regain, and increase fat burning, plus controlling cholesterol to help with fat loss.
We recommend using an all-in-one capsule PAGG to ensure the highest quality ingredients (which can help anyone who has experienced acid reflux with lower quality Alpha Lipoic Acid), the best results, and for convenience. Packing a couple of tablets every day for work is much more likely to keep happening, compared to having to pack multiple sets of 3 tablets.
This tape measure is perfect for self – measuring, any and all the spots that need to be measured. Click here for more information.
Escali Bathroom Scale
Measuring and weighing are two things everyone needs to do if they’re working for a change in their body. These bathroom scales go a step beyond a regular measuring device – they can report back bodyfat percentage and body water, and record for up to 10 different people.

Any kind of weight training, whether it’s gym, exercise bands, or kettlebells, put strain on the hands. After a while, painful irritation can develop, and affect grip strength, as well as causing ongoing challenges.
Traditional weight training gloves get hot, sticky and sweaty, and are difficult to keep clean. They also tend to dig into the fingers at certain points, and wear out quickly.
New Grips provide a comfortable and protective layer between the hand and the object, and last a long time. Plus, they’re easy to use, and allow plenty of air flow. I use them every gym session!
The GymBoss Max is a timer that’s designed for workouts. Much more than a stopwatch – it lets you set programs and intervals so you can do exactly the workout you want, and repeat that same workout the next time. It’s a lot like having a trainer with you, counting reps and pushing you harder, plus making sure you don’t go too fast or too slow. A real must-have for anyone training to get the best results.
Kettlebells are great to workout with – there’s a lot you can do with them, and there’s endless supplies of workouts if you get sick of the ones in the Four Hour Body.

A gym membership is a great gift to give someone who might not be able to afford to pay their own membership. Look for fixed-duration memberships, such as 3 month, 6 month or 12 month prepaid options, so the pressure isn’t on the receiver to keep up monthly payments. Make sure the gym you choose has all the necessary equipment for workouts – such as kettlebells, dumbells, machine weights, etc.
Definitely compare 3 local options to see what they offer, and see which is most cost effective.

Clothing can make all the difference for some people, and a gift voucher, or an article of clothing like a sweater, some jogging pants, or a new workout shirt can go a long way. Checkout some options local to you, and remember to shop online as well – you never know what bargains you might find!
For anyone who has trouble with getting up, and feeling awake in the mornings, Philips made this special light that not only helps people feel more awake, but helps those affected with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Light therapy is very effective in helping people who feel tired during the winter, and who have trouble getting up and staying motivated and feeling happy when the days are shorter. It’s small enough to fit on a desk or side table, and is used daily for a specified time. A really great gift for anyone at this time of year – they’re sure to thank you every time they see you for the rest of winter!

This is a fantastic book, and interesting reading for anybody. I wrote an article about this exact book and topic recently (Click here to read the article). This book reveals all the reasons and mechanisms of how people gain fat, and lose fat, and totally cuts through all the media hype about diets, trends and fads, and also uses research results to show why the current recommendation of a low fat, high carbohydrate diet does nothing more than keep people fat, whilst keeping them hungry too.
And that’s it!
