Lean Meats, Seafood & Shellfish The 4 Hour Body Diet LEAN MEATS

With the 4 Hour Body diet I encourage you to eat as much high-quality real animal foods that you can get your hands on. Obviously, the closer you can get to wild, the better off you’ll be when it comes to the fatty acid profile and the nutrient content of your meat. Game meat is not necessary for the 4 Hour Body Diet, but if you want to be adventuresome, try some. It’s nutritious and adds a unique flavor and twist to any meal. Game meat is pricey (unless you hunt or know hunters), and typically only available at specialty markets, farmers’ markets, and certain butcher stores. Use the following list to help you select healthy meats.

• Flank steak • Top sirloin steak • Extra-lean hamburger (extra fat drained off) • London broil • Chuck steak • Lean veal • Any other lean cut

• Grass-fed lamb chops from Australia or New Zealand • Grass-fed lamb roasts from Australia or New Zealand

• Pork loin • Pork chops • Any other lean cut

LEAN POULTRY (white meat, skin removed)
• Chicken breast • Turkey breast • Game hen breast

• Rabbit meat (any cut) • Goat meat (any cut) • Escargot


• Beef, lamb, pork, and chicken liver • Beef, pork, and lamb tongue • Beef, lamb, and pork marrow • Beef, lamb, and pork sweetbreads

• Alligator or crocodile • Bear • Bison or buffalo • Caribou • Elk • Emu • Frog legs • Goose • Kangaroo • Muscovy duck • New Zealand Cervena deer • Ostrich • Pheasant • Quail • Rattlesnake • Reindeer • Squab • Squirrel • Turtle • Venison • Wild boar • Wild turkey

Fish, seafood, and shellfish are some of the healthiest animal foods you can eat, and they should be a cornerstone of the 4 Hour Body diet. They are rich sources of the healthy long-chain omega 3 fatty acids known as EPA and DHA. Fatty fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and herring, are particularly rich in both of these long-chain omega 3 fatty acids. Try to include fish in your menu at least three times a week.

Fish, Seafood, and Shellfish

• Bass • Bluefish • Cod • Drum • Eel • Flatfish • Grouper • Haddock • Halibut • Herring • Mackerel • Monkfish • Mullet • Northern pike • Orange roughy • Perch • Red snapper • Rockfish • Salmon • Scrod • Shark • Striped bass • Sunfish • Tilapia • Trout • Tuna • Turbot • Walleye • Any commercially available fish

• Abalone • Calamari (squid) • Crab • Crayfish • Lobster • Mussels • Octopus • Oysters • Scallops • Shrimp In addition to being an excellent source of EPA and DHA, fish and seafood represent one of our best high-protein foods. The high protein content is central to many of its weight-loss benefits. Protein helps you to lose weight more rapidly by raising your metabolism while simultaneously curbing your hunger. Additionally, protein lowers your total blood cholesterol
