Tim Ferris refers to his ‘ultimate nutritional supplement’- ‘Athletic Greens‘ supplement several times throughout The 4-Hour Body. He cites 4 really good reasons why Athletic Greens should be an integral part of your 4-Hour Body challenge- Damage control for cheat days, increasing gastric emptying to improve your fat loss/ belly fat loss, using good gastric bacteria to promote fat loss, and utilising the ‘glucose switch’ to promote fat loss.
To save you some time and effort, he is a list of references where Tim Ferris discusses the Athletic Greens Supplement in The 4-Hour Body book-

P 116- ‘again under damage control- ‘2 heaped tbsp Athletic Greens Supplement in water (86 kcal)’
P p118- ‘My favorite greens supplement’, “Athletic Greens supplement (mentioned in the schedule) doesn’t contain caffeine but will also help… to ‘increase the speed of gastric emptying, or how quickly the food exits the stomach’.
p 123- ‘inside the micro biome: balancing bacteria for fat-loss’…Consider probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are bacteria. Prebiotics are fermentable substrates that help bacteria grow and thrive…. In this category, I’ve experimented with organic inulin and fructo-oligosaccharides, commonly referred to as FOS. For a host of reasons, I prefer inulin, which I get through the Athletic Greens Supplement mentioned previously’.
