Drool-worthy food and random thoughts

Mmm, maybe because it's humid and I'm craving something cool, but grilled tofu sounds amazing right now. [Here's the recipe too!]

What's your go-to-summer food?

Mr. F and I are on the 4-Hour Body kick and eating super healthy this summer. The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming SuperhumanI'm hoping we can stick with it longer than the South Beach Diet.

[source] Fortunately, this "rapid fat-loss" diet, actually keeps me full (with many servings of slow-carbs, like beans and almond butter) and not crabby/starving.

The best part of this regimen is the "Mininum Effective Dose" (doing the bare minimum to gain the most desired outcome) and having one day off a week.

Here are some of Timothy Ferriss' other helpful tips:

Five rules for cutting body fat:

1. Avoid "white" carbohydrates

2. Eat the same few meals over and over again

3. Don't drink calories

4. Don't eat fruit

5. Take one day off per week

Mr. F and I are already noticing a big difference in our muscle definition and lack of cravings. I'm super psyched to read more of the book to 'perfect my sleep', 'run faster and farther', and to generally get stronger. Have you read this book?
