About Us

Hello and welcome!

We’re so glad you’ve dropped by for a nice chat about Tim Ferriss’ 4 Hour Body book.   We are Eric Oliver and Carin Galletta.  We’re engaged.  Which means I need to get into a wedding dress.  And did I mention that we’re a bit, uh…chubby.   We love to cook, eat, drink wine and have parties that last until the wee morning hours.  If we can lose weight on this diet, we’re thinking anyone can.

This website is our attempt to dispel the myth that the recommended diet mentioned in Tim Ferriss’ book, the 4 Hour Body, is boring.  There are a million yummy things you can do with all the ingredients and our goal is to provide a diverse list of recipes from which to choose.

We do a ton of entertaining and experimenting with recipes.  Our parties are notorious, sometimes even for the food we’ve prepared!  We’ve spent most of our time in California working with the best available, in season, and organic ingredients.

Eric is a total technology geek so our kitchen is stocked with just about every gadget you can think of.  If you don’t have the item or ingredient in your kitchen and we don’t give you an alternative in the recipe, just ask.  If we don’t know, we’ll hunt it down for you. We are both total foodies who love to share.  But that being said, this is a passion project for us, so it may take a couple of days to get back to you.

Many of the links on this site are affiliate links and are marked as such with an (af).  Which means that if you click on it and buy something we’ll make like a dime or something.  And if you buy a couple of things, we’ll be able to buy you a glass of champagne.  Which, if we get to know you, we’ll probably do anyway.

We are going to try Timothy Ferris’ recommended eating plan in his new book the 4 Hour Body (af) and chronicle our success (or lack of)with it.  We’ll try to do a daily check in and we hope you will join us on our journey.
