1000’s of Slow Carb Recipes For 4 Hour Body

slow carb recipes - low carb and 4 Hour Body diet compliant

Does every single morning look like this? Boooooring.

This may seem a little bit off of my normal topics of marketing and money-making.  But it’s my site, so neener neener.  Maybe I’ll change this to a “lifestyle blog”.  Ugh, even that term makes me feel creepy for some reason.

Ok, anyway… For quite awhile I’ve been on the Slow Carb Diet and proposed in Tim Ferris’s 4 Hour Body book.  And I’ll say this much, it works…. when I actually stick to it. 🙂  But I like to try new recipes out and change up what I’m eating whenever I’ve got time to cook.  And I find it difficult to find good slow carb recipes online that fit within the 4 Hour Body guidelines.

Yesterday, I had a giant “oh, duh…” moment.  There’s a great site called SuperCook.com that can literally drop hundreds of slow carb recipes in your rapidly shrinking lap with very little effort.

1. Register for a free account over there.  You don’t have to have an account, but having one means you don’t have to re-enter the same ingredients every time you’re there.

2. Start clicking on ingredients (in the top box) that you have and that are allowed on the diet.  You can also enter ingredients in the search box on the left.

For the sake of your own sanity, just leave out ingredients you’re not allowed to have.  As much as I want to see every recipe that includes cheddar cheese, I know I’ll take someone’s head off before the end of the week.

3. You can then pick from main dishes and whatever kind of whatever in the drop down menu at the top.

It’s super easy and you’ll never run out of recipes again.  Last night I did chili-rubbed New York steaks and a bean salad.

Here’s the list of ingredients that I include in my account:

artificial sweetener
baking powder

baking soda
balsamic vinegar
banana pepper

spinach
steak seasoning
taco sauce
thyme
tofu
tomatillo
tomato paste
turkey
turmeric
vanilla
vegetable stock

worcestershire

Lots more you can add too.  Mushrooms, for instance.  I can’t stand the things.  Right now this, list of ingredients gives me 3041 slow carb recipes.  That oughta keep me going for awhile.  And without having to eat mushrooms.

Every so often, one will slip through that includes something that isn’t Slow Carb compliant.  Like a hamburger bun or something.  So just watch out for those.

Oh, and all Super Cook does is aggregate recipes from other sites.  So you’re getting legit stuff from Food Network, Martha Stewart, and Epicurious.  It just saves you a ton of time in searching.

Alright… Now I’ve made myself hungry and need to go eat a salad.  And dream of Binge Day Saturday, which this week will include a giant deli sandwich of some sort. 🙂

1000’s of Slow Carb Recipes For 4 Hour Body — 2 Comments

    • From what I know, and I’m certainly no dietician, you don’t want to do JUST protein. You need a little bit of carbs in there too. Basically I go by what’s in Tim Ferriss’s 4 Hour Body book. Carbs generally come from beans. Once a week you get a full on cheat day where you can eat anything you want. And that’s what gets me through the boring eating week. Just thinking about all the crap I can eat on Saturday. 🙂

      However, if you get a good variety of recipes going, there really is a ton of stuff you can make that keeps things a little more interesting during the week.
