Tim Ferriss's 4 Hour Body
I've decided to give Tim Ferriss's 4 Hour Body
book a try, specifically the slow-carb diet, which is supposed to drop up to 20 pounds in 30 days. I'm on day 10 right now and have to say I am not impressed. The diet is basically a low-carb diet, minus dairy and fruit, plus 1 binge day a week where anything goes. So far my results have been nominal. I'm down about 1.5 pounds right now. And the lowest I've been was 3.5 under my starting weight (which I shall forego including in this post.) Like I said, not impressed, but I will stick it out for the full 30 days. I need to get some of what I'm calling "writer's weight" off. Sitting at a desk most hours of the day have not been kind.
The New Story
I'm working on a new short story which will be put up on the site. It's another fantasy story, this time dealing with mermaids (and mermen and love and several other things.) I'm really enjoying writing it and hope to get it done within a week, at which point I'll put it on the site and get the word out.
I was contacted by fellow Tweeter Ciro Cruz - @ciruz
- about translating my "Death of a Hero" short story into Brazilian Portuguese. I loved the idea and gave him the green light, so a huge thank you to Ciro. The story will be posted on my site when he is finished (with full credit given to him for the translation.)
