The Ultimate 4 Hour Body Slow Carb Food Matrix

by Stephen

I have came across several versions of this on the internet but I wanted to build one that was a bit more complete. Inspired by Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solution Food Matrix and Brian Valentine’s interpretation of the 4 hour body matrix,  here is mine.

As always feel free to add, subtract or modify items as you see fit.  I have included a link to the original MS word document that you can edit and format to suit your needs. Just click “Like” to reveal the link and download the MS Word File.

I thought yams and sweet potatoes were off limits on the SCD.

I agree with Robb and the paleo people on this one, so I have included it as an OK food on my version of the matrix. Although maybe I should specify with an asterisk as on the Paleo Solution food matrix:

*dense carbohydrate –eat in moderation until leanness goals are reached

I started some research a while ago that I didn’t finish, but it involved testing blood sugar and stuff. Sweet potatoes and yams seemed to have the same effect that beans did, while grains raised my blood sugar higher and for longer periods of time. So I am with you, Stephen. :)

Hey Stephen,
This is a great resource!
May I suggest one minor addition to this page – to mention that this is your personal version of a 4 Hour Body Matrix. According to the originally published slow carb ‘rules’, there’s lots of things on your list that don’t fall under Tim’s original ‘slow carb’ diet. I could see some people relying on certain vegetables listed, or some of the higher fat meats and not getting the fat loss they’d like.

Cheers!
Luke

PS Bacon is listed twice, but I love it too, so I think you could leave it on there!

How about turkey, turkey sausage?

Yes Kristie, absolutely! Turkey and turkey sausage are A-OK… I should add them to the list.

Hi Nancy,

Yes, any type of sausage is fine. Well, relatively speaking :-)
