You come to Finding My Fitness looking for help with weight loss, slow-carb/paleo/4hb questions, and recipes – but there’s a lot to pick through. I thought it would be helpful to put together a list, all in one place, categorized in a way that makes sense, of the different things you’d be looking for help with. I’ll add more as I find it, so come back here often!

If you can’t find something here that you were looking for, please let me know and I’ll add it as soon as I can!

Books

These are all books that deal with weight loss, fitness, or nutrition. There is so much knowledge here, it’s not even funny.

The 4-Hour Body – This is the book that started it all for me. If you need a refresher, here are the basics of 4 Hour Body.

The 4-Hour Chef – Obviously not out yet, but the prices are going up so order soon. Follow 4 Hour Chef news here.

The Paleo Solution – After reading The 4-Hour Body, I had a lot of questions about why certain things worked or didn’t. The Paleo Solution provides a lot of those answers, and Robb Wolf has even been on Tim Ferriss’ blog. Not as thick, but really meaty.

Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals – Mark Sisson put together a couple really nice cookbooks that are Paleo, but they are full of slow-carb recipes as well. Whenever we want something new, we crack the book to see what it’s got.

The Primal Blueprint Cookbook – This is Mark’s other cookbook. Hundreds of recipes at your fingertips.

Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It
– Gary Taubes uncovers and explains a lot of the bad science that’s gotten Americans as obese as we are.

Websites

4 Hour Body subreddit – The best place online for as much slow-carb information/discussion as you can handle. The community is great.

SparkPeople – A great community-based website that helps you keep track of your fitness goals. There is a 4HB Team as well as a Paleo team, so pick your poison and join me!

Products

Equipment

Kettlebell – If you have one piece of exercise equipment, it should be a kettlebell. It’s incredibly useful for so many different things.

Supplements

PAGG – I take the PAGG stack created by Pareto Nutrition. They formulated it specifically to line up with Tim’s recommendations in the book. Read more about PAGG here.

Web Tools – For the other webgeeks out there

Just in case some of you are wondering what keeps FMF available, here are a few links to the things I use.

WordPress – The site is based off of WordPress, and I do it self-hosted.

The Genesis Framework – The framework upon which the site is built. Out-of-the-box SEO benefits, awesome support, and gorgeous child themes to put on top (or you can even get free ones that look good too).

1and1 Hosting – My awesome host! I mean, I don’t own it, but they’re my favorite.
