The Drastic Fantastic Band Diet may have had a dramatic name, but was rubbish results-wise!
Crisis action needed- back to the one diet that really worked for me back in the beginning- billionaire polymath Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Body Diet as per books:-
The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-loss, Incredible Sex and Becoming Superhuman
The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life
The diet is later summarised in picture form, but essentially it is a type of slow carb diet where bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta, tortillas, white carbs, milk, fruit and fruit juice are avoided, but foods like eggs, chicken, beef, pork, lentils, beans (black, pinto, borlotti, red), veggies, guacamole, peas, tomatoes, two daily small glasses of red wine, mushrooms, peanuts, almonds, cashews, pine nuts, brazils, low mayo coleslaw, olive oil, vinegar, salsa, garlic, cocoa, macadamia oil, tarragon, chilli paste, mustard, butter, peanut butter, almond butter, onions, refried beans, up to 16oz daily of diet cola and in maintenance a little sweet potato are allowed.
There is the option of using what Tim has coined as PAGG nutritional supplements, but these are not essential.
The absolute magic to me is that one day a week, e.g. Saturday, from around noon you can eat (and drink) literally whatever you like until the end of the day, it is cheat time!
Tim damage limits the enormous number of calories then with things like grapefruit juice (for the naringin) synergising with caffeine and squat exercises.
Meanwhile I exercise with the WonderCore 2, post-recent arm break, can I get my 4 Hour Body back, we shall see…
