So, I've been messing about with the slow carb diet in Tim Ferris's Four Hour Body book. Its an interesting book and I like the way that he thinks so I've decided to give it a try. One of the chapters goes into detail about the PAGG stack of supplements that that he takes. He was looking for a replacement to ECA, which has some nasty side effects.
  • Policosanol – Once a day
  • Alpha Lipoic Acid (ala) – Taken 4 times a day
  • Garlic Extract - Taken 4 times a day
  • Green Tea - Taken 3 times a day

I've got them all in one as a supplement, four of one kind of pill a day and on of another before bed. I've been taking them for a few days now and there don't seem to be and serious side effects.

From the small of the tablets I was a little worried that I was going to be seating garlic the entire time but thats not happening. There is a little bit of indigestion if you don't time the AGG part of the thing right but apart from that all seems ok at the moment.

Just weighed myself after cheat day and I don't seem to have put back on anywhere near as much weight as I normally would after going nuts for a day. This week will be the first whole week of PAGG so I'll update on progress.

I hope that some progress is made cos I'm getting a little frustrated.
