The 8 Hour Diet
Mmm k. So this year I’ve decided “hey, I bought an iPad and I can read books on it, so let’s do some reading again like in the oldie timey days when you weren’t preferentially playing a video game where you were blowing zombie’s heads off. Not that I will stop doing that. Just, you know…reading may be more beneficial to my brain.
So book one of the year: The 8 Hour Diet. I’m a big Men’s Health reader, and this book is by the editor of Men’s Health. He’s also the man behind the Eat This, Not That series. His advice and ideas are usually solid, and easy to work into your lifestyle.
This whole…only eat during an 8 hour period of the day, eat whatever you want, but you’ll still lose weight thing though? I’m quite skeptical. I’m only one chapter in. And he hasn’t really gotten into how the “diet” works. So I’ll hold my opinions until I’ve finished the book. However, let’s be honest, considering my thesis is on the genetics of obesity, and in order to write my thesis I have gained quite a good understanding of how obesity happens…I am a biased reader. But I have nothing but an open mind to ideas that could be beneficial and revolutionary. And if this holds up to its claims, then yes, in my opinion this would be a revolutionary idea in the world of dieting.
But I’ve said enough for now and I shall hold my tongue until I’m completely done.
Carry on, my friends.
