Timothy Ferriss shows off his 4-hour body

Timothy Ferriss wrote The 4-Hour Workweek, loves fitness and posing with his shirt off. Remind you of anyone I know? I can almost relate to this guy.

Here’s is a NY Times book reviewer’s excited statement about Ferriss’s new book: “The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, made its debut at No. 1 on the hard-cover advice list on Jan. 2. It’s among the craziest, most breathless things I’ve ever read.”

“As befits the former chief executive of a nutritional supplements company, Mr. Ferriss talks up a witches’ brew of juices, nuts, potions and drugs. Here’s a typical burp from an early chapter: “Overfat? Try timed protein and pre-meal lemon juice. Undermuscled? Try ginger and sauerkraut. Can’t sleep? Try upping your saturated fat or using cold exposure.” Want to have “wolverine” sex? Who doesn’t? Eat 4 Brazil nuts, 20 raw almonds and 2 capsules of fermented cod-liver oil and butterfat four hours before intercourse.”

Now this sure sounds like an unusual diet.

“Mr. Ferriss offers advice about so many disparate things—not simply losing weight and building muscle and improving sex and living forever, but learning to hold your breath longer than Houdini (!) and hit baseballs like Babe Ruth (!!)”
