Have you made a New Year’s resolution to get in better shape in 2015? Congratulations, you’ve chosen one of the most popular resolutions of all time. And one of the most easily broken ones too. I’ve tried myriad diet/exercise plans in the past, and usually about two days into them I’m constantly hungry, cranky and headache-y. Needless to say, I bailed out on each of those plans.

But in early 2014 I read a book called 4 Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss, and tried his plan. I lost 25 pounds in about 4 months, and have managed to keep those pounds off in the ensuing 6 months without feeling hungry all the time. I feel better and less bloated too. It’s worth checking out.
