Treats

Pro-Max Bars

41B9wyVgrbL. AA300  Four Hour Body Gift List for the Holidays   ideas for Slow Carb Dieters and others

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.


Zevia

31MG9DyTkTL. AA300  Four Hour Body Gift List for the Holidays   ideas for Slow Carb Dieters and others

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

PAGG

PAGG Stack


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.

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.

Working out

New Grips

To check these out, click here to visit their website.

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!


GymBoss Max

41aRez1QwvL. SL500 AA300  Four Hour Body Gift List for the Holidays   ideas for Slow Carb Dieters and others

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

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.

Gym Membership

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.

Workout Clothes

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!

Better Sleep

Philips GoLITE

41eFJ9QD44L. SL500 AA300  Four Hour Body Gift List for the Holidays   ideas for Slow Carb Dieters and others

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.

    Does anyone else have a issue with the music that plays at the bottom? At least for me the way it enlarges as the mouse is over it is even more troublesome and makes it difficult to close. I have to stop following this site due to the annoyance of that music.

    • laz says:

      for sure. the music is ridiculous and annoying.

      • Luke says:

        Hey Adam sorry you feel that way. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback on this experiment. Did you know you can close it for your entire session in one click?
        Luke

    • Luke says:

      Hi Shane thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. We’ve had a lot of positive feedback too on this experiment, however the month-long trial is due to end quite shortly.
      We will take your thoughts into consideration when planning the site into the future.
      Cheers,
      Luke

  • Shane says:

    The Promax bars you list are not very good for you. Just one ingredient is enough to be sad “FRUCTOSE”.

    Better bars exist, but I don’t link to them as it could be construed as trying to sell them.

    • Luke says:

      Hey Shane,
      You’re welcome to post your alternate bars here, please feel free if you prefer something else.
      In my opinion any added sugar isn’t the greatest for you, no matter whether it’s agave nectar, cane sugar or fructose. In regards to these bars however, you’ll note that the high fiber content, with the fructose will both slow and blunt insulin response (as Tim notes in the book for cheat days – drinking grapefruit juice in the morning is to lower his insulin response from further meals), which is why I prefer these bars to many others. Plus, they are not sweetened with anything artificial like Splenda or Aspartame, both of which have very dubious links to a range of health problems, and I feel are best avoided.
      Thanks for your comment,
      Luke

  • laz says:

    IMO a withings scale is better than the one listed because it connects to your wifi and records your weight on their web site. It seems like a gimmick the first week (tweet my weight?!?! ahahaha), but a few weeks in, it’s totally worth the purchase when you see the changes in the line.

    • Luke says:

      Hey Adam, thanks for your suggestion!
      For anyone looking for a wifi scale, I think your’s is a great suggestion. Tweeting your weight may be pushing it a little far… but for some people 100% accountability might be what they’re looking for!
      Cheers,
      Luke

  • Goatlady says:

    I like this site but the auto-playing music drives me crazy – and can’t see any way to turn it off at all.

    • Luke says:

      Hey there – the autoplay has been disabled on the music – so if it’s playing, then it’s only from hitting the ‘Play’ Button. If you didn’t, then try refreshing the page after clearing your cache – the player no longer auto-plays music at all.

      Cheers,
      Luke

    Hello. I’m struggling with the sweetener issue. I love coffee and i used to have it 5 times a day with extra cream and sugar but now it’s down to once a day in the am but i still use some type of sweetener because i can’t drink it straight. I’ve used splenda, or agave or stevia. I know all three are not recommended but which of the three is the least offensive? No, i cannot add cinnamon. :)
    Thanks!
    strugglin’ pai

    • Luke says:

      Hey, sounds like you made some big changes already, so good on you for getting this far!
      Out of those three, stevia is my choice. Agave nectar is almost 100% sugar/fructose, so it’s out immediately, and splenda is terribly artificial. There’s still no long term data on stevia, but at least it comes from a plant (though I know that’s not always a good sign, so do poisons).
      Have you tried pure vanilla essence? Might be worth a shot (don’t use vanilla syrup).
      Lastly, try buying your coffee from a different place – drip coffee tastes terrible with nothing in it, but a properly pulled espresso shot with extra hot water (a long black) can taste great if they use good beans. It’s a totally different drink.

      All the best,
      Luke
